2015 Archie League Medal of Safety Award Winners

We are excited to announce the winners of the 2015 Archie League Medal of Safety Award. Named after the first air traffic controller, Archie League, the awards recognize the important role our members play in keeping the NAS safe and efficient. NATCA members nominate their brothers and sisters who performed an outstanding flight assist during 2014. On Friday, Jan. 9, a panel of judges, including NATCA Safety and Technology Director Dale Wright, AOPA Air Safety Institute Senior Safety Advisor and past president Bruce Landsberg, and ALPA Aviation Safety Chair Chuck Hogeman, viewed 53 nominations to decide this year’s winners.

NATCA Celebrates Engineers Week

These professionals are a part of every one of the 70,000 flights that safely take-off and land each day. They design, construct and remodel air traffic control facilities. They analyze, improve and upgrade radar and communications coverage. They are committed to making aviation technology the best it can possibly be.

These professionals are the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) engineers, who NATCA proudly represents and recognizes for their many contributions to the workforce during National Engineers Week, Feb. 22-28.

“NATCA-represented engineers employed by the FAA operate in the background for the most part, but they provide essential services that the flying public doesn’t usually consider when they think of flying in the U.S. today,” said NATCA Region X Vice President Mike MacDonald.
