IFATCA Conference Newcommer Ballot

As some of you will remember EGATS used to give the opportunity for a member to join the official EGATS delegation at the IFATCA annual conference. Last year we didn’t organise the ballot, as there were too many practical difficulties, but this year we are bringing it back!

The 48th IFATCA Annual Conference will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia from 20th to 24th April 2009. Participating in this conference will give you the chance to attend interesting meetings regarding our profession, with professional and technical committees set up to discuss the main issues and the way forward.

International Day of the Air Traffic Controller - 20 OCTOBER 2008

Air traffic control has developed from the humblest beginnings into a highly sophisticated and technology dependent occupation. And even as we are on the cusp of an even more dramatic leap of new technologies, many people remain unaware of just what an air traffic controller does and few comprehend just what is involved in keeping aircraft safely apart, but close enough so that they get to their destinations as efficiently as possible.

Good cause

One of our colleagues, James Kench, is trying to raise money for a good cause...  You can read all about it here:

As EGATS is sponsoring the rugby and ski teams, and previously the football team, we considered it worthy to make a donation to this cause also.

Of course it would be very nice if more of us followed.
