Congratulations our two newest Accredited Airport Executives, who earned their designation at the 2017 F. Russell Hoyt National Airports Conference in Las Vegas.

Ryan Sheehan, A.A.E., Director of Operations, Spokane International Airport; and
Eleni Elling, A.A.E., Senior Financial Manager, Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Congrats, Ryan and Eleni! We'd also like to thank the mentors and panelists for their time and dedication.

Ryan and his panel members: Mihai Smighelschi, A.A.E., Metropolitan Knoxville Aviation Authority; Ronald Elliott, A.A.E., Stockton Metropolitan Airport; and Jeremy Worrall, A.A.E., ACE, State of Alaska.

Eleni and her panel members: Luis Elguezabal, A.A.E., San Angelo Regional Airport; Dean Schultz, A.A.E., Reno-Tahoe International Airport; and Christopher White, A.A.E., Albert J. Ellis Airport.
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.
