NBAA Air Traffic Services Offers New Education Sessions at NBAA2015

Nov. 2, 2015

For the first time, NBAA's Air Traffic Services (ATS) is hosting two mini education sessions at NBAA's Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA2015), designed to offer information on important operational topics, while keeping in mind that attendees often have packed schedules for the three days of the show.

Internships an Effective Tool for Succession Planning, Engaging Future Leaders

The sessions are:

  • GDP vs. Ground Stop – What’s the Difference? This session examines the two similar, but different tools, that FAA uses to regulate airport arrivals and explains why it is important to understand the difference between them.
  • Airspace Web Essentials – NAS Information at Your Fingertips This session focuses on internet resources offered by the FAA, which can help flight crews enhance their situational awareness before they depart on their flight. These resources are often vital in avoiding delays and suggesting options that can help operators maintain flight schedules.

The briefings will be offered at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Nov. 17, 18 and 19, at the NBAA ATS Booth No. N1325, in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Each is designed to last approximately 15 minutes before questions.

“This is something of an experiment,” said Jim McClay, project manager with NBAA ATS. “We really want to see how NBAA Members like these shorter, more specific briefings. It’s something we came up with at ATS, and if it catches on we anticipate doing more of them at future events.”
