The Civil/Military Aviation Conference (CMAC), organized by the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA), is the world’s largest civil/military air traffic management summit, where senior civil and military leaders from throughout the world explore plans for civil and military collaboration. It regularly attracts military commanders and air forces’ chiefs of staff, directors of civil aviation, and heads of air navigation service organizations to focus on the latest developments and future directions in air traffic control. Historically, CMAC has attracted more than 300 key decision makers and other centers of influence from 50 nations.
For the first time, CMAC will be brought to the United states, and the event will unfold during the ATCA 59 Annual. Collocation of the event will bring a larger, more unique group of aviation stakeholders together under one roof. As we continue to work collaboratively to solve issues in our respective national airspace, it is important for the world’s leaders in both civil and military air traffic control to come together and discuss common ground and best practices.
