In anticipation of the upcoming severe weather season (thunderstorms, tornadoes etc.), the FAA ATC System Command Center will be holding “training” sessions to review procedures and discuss new initiatives and regional issues. These events are being called Collaborative Traffic Flow Management sessions.
The schedule is as follows: 05/17 and 5/18 @ Business Jet Center, DAL; 05/24 and 5/25 @ Honeywell Corporate Headquarters, Morristown NJ; 6/15 and 6/16 @ America West Headquarters, Phoenix AZ. NBAA will be hosting the two May events. Although each location will host a “two-day” event, the day one session will be repeated on day two, so attendance at only one of the days would be required.
The sessions will involve panel discussions with FAA and customer representatives focusing on both national and regional issues. The customer panel will have airline dispatchers and also business aviation schedulers, dispatchers, and pilots.
The sessions are free and lunch will be provided at the NBAA sponsored events. Space is limited so if you would like to attend, you need to RSVP to NBAA at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, company, phone number, and job title.
