NATCA Executive Vice President Trish Gilbert attended a multi-region/facility meeting in Covington, Ky. She discussed issues facing NATCA and the National Airspace System. Three states and two regions were represented by attendees at the meeting: Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio NATCA members from Greater Cincinnati ATCT, Louisville/Bowman ATCT, Louisville Standiford ATCT, Lexington ATCT, Columbus (OH) ATCT, Lafayette ATCT, and Indianapolis Center were there to learn and ask questions.
Last Saturday, Potomac TRACON members Matt Sullivan and AnnMarie Taggio represented NATCA at the Women in Aviation Girl Scouts event held at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
There were close to 10,000 visitors that day and they were both were honored to represent NATCA as they teamed with the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) to share information about the National Airspace System (NAS), air traffic controllers, and pilots. The event was a great success and hopefully has inspired a new generation of aviation safety professionals.
