Introducing the ATCA-ERAU AMS Workshop
Make the AMS Work for You!



ATCA is excited to offer an exclusive AMS Workshop, a joint-initiative developed by ATCA and Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). We have created this professional development curriculum to help aviation professionals like you harness the full capabilities of the FAA Acquisition Management System (AMS). From service analysis and strategic planning to in-service management, this one-day course will equip you with the tools and insight you need to not only effectively navigate the AMS but to maximize your competitive edge.
  
Our course, led by ERAU associate professor Dr. John Longshore, is designed to engage participants at all levels of AMS experience in both industry and government. At the end of the program, you will receive a certificate of completion, jointly signed by ERAU and ATCA.

The one-day ATCA/ERAU AMS Workshop will take place on the last day of ATCA Annual, Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the Gaylord National Harbor. The class size is extremely limited—only 30 participants! Registration is $799.

Hurry! We expect this workshop to sell out quickly.

    Hon. Linda Hall Daschle Named 2018 Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award Winner


    The Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) is pleased to announce that former FAA Acting Administrator Linda Hall Daschle has been selected as the 2018 recipient of the prestigious Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award, one of the most prominent awards in aviation and ATCA’s highest honor.

    A pioneer for women in air traffic management, Daschle was the first female to hold the post of Acting Administrator for the FAA. She began her aviation career in Kansas nearly 45 years ago as a licensed weather observer for the agency. In 1993, she was nominated by President Clinton and confirmed by the US Senate for the position of FAA Deputy Administrator. One of her first tasks involved an assessment of the agency’s key air traffic modernization program called the Advanced Automation System which was eventually overhauled, saving the agency an estimated $1.6 billion. She also oversaw the advancement of new regional airline safety regulations and conducted a review of the agency’s safety and surveillance program, which resulted in one of the single largest hires of new safety inspectors in FAA history. 

    Ms. Daschle has held numerous government and private-sector leadership positions, including with the American Association of Airport Executives, the Air Transport Association, the former Civil Aeronautics Board, and with the law firm of Baker Donelson. She is currently President of LHD & Associates, Inc, and serves on the board of Aireon, LLC.

    In accepting the Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award, Ms. Daschle joins aviation greats, including Delta’s Richard Anderson, NATCA President Paul Rinaldi, the Hon. Jane Garvey, Boeing’s Neil Planzer, former Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, and pilot A. Scott Crossfield. (View press release HERE.)
