Welcoming New Facilities Into the NATCA Family

NATCA represents a group of air traffic control specialists that work in 110 Federal Contract Towers (FCTs) for one of four private employers: Midwest Air Traffic Control Services, Robinson Aviation (RVA), Inc., RVA-CI Squared Aviation, Inc., and Serco Management Services, Inc. These contract towers tend to be smaller in size and operation, typically employing between five and 10 controllers, many of whom are retired FAA and military air traffic controllers.

We’d like to recognize and welcome the members from the FCTs who recently voted to join NATCA:

As a small facility, we believe in strength in numbers and are excited to know we have a large community of controllers behind us.” — Jeremy Morgan, FOE FacRep
