Congratulations to Matthew "Kevan" Smith, A.A.E., Public Safety Chief, Asheville Regional Airport, who recently earned his accreditation.

Thanks to Patrick Wilson, A.A.E., ACE, McGhee Tyson Airport; and Floyd Crook, A.A.E., and Tommy Bibb, A.A.E. Nashville International Airport, for serving on his panel. 

Becoming an A.A.E. is a great way to command respect in the airport industry. Since 1954, AAAE has been committed to the advancement of aviation professionals by granting the A.A.E. designation to those who have demonstrated their ability to handle the responsibilities of airport management. The program is open to Affiliate members of AAAE and IAAE. Having an A.A.E. is a useful credential when seeking employment within the airport management profession.

You can learn more about the A.A.E. process and download an application on our website.
