2014 Contract Tower Program Workshop

14-Contract-Tower-2550

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), AAAE and AAAE’s affiliated organization, the U.S. Contract Tower Association (USCTA), are pleased to present the annual workshop on the FAA Contract Tower Program, June 24-25, 2014, at the Loews Madison Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The FAA Contract Tower Program continues to receive high marks from the Department of Transportation Inspector General, Congress and the National Transportation Safety Board. FAA also has implemented the cost-sharing program for some airports that fall below the eligibility criteria for contract towers.  Past workshops have resulted in substantive changes and enhancements to the program from an airport operator perspective.

Time also is reserved from 1:30-5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 24, for individual airports to meet with staff of their House and Senate members about the contract tower program and other airport priorities. These meetings are encouraged and should be set up prior to coming to the workshop. Please call Spencer Dickerson, AAAE/USCTA, (703) 824-0500, Ext. 130 for more information.
