Reading TRACAB Hosts Congresswoman Madeleine Dean

U.S. Representative Madeleine Dean (Penn.-4) and her Senior Advisor Koh Chiba visited Reading TRACAB (RDG) on June 29. RDG Legislative Representative Rob Belote led the tour and a productive discussion about the facilities and simulators.

“She was thoroughly impressed and seemed in awe of what we do every day. We discussed the importance of stable, predictable funding, as well as the most pressing air traffic control issue lately: staffing,” Belote said. “I highlighted the critical need for controllers and informed her of the numbers and how we have fewer today than a decade ago. Overall, it was a great visit. Rep. Dean made a point of saying she would love to come back at some point in the future!”
