AAAE/USCTA FAA Contract Tower Program Webinar

Friday, July 10, 2020 | 2-4 p.m. ET | Online

About

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Contract Tower (FCT) Program has been in place since 1982 and currently provides for the contract operation of air traffic control services at 256 airports. The program continues to receive high marks from the Department of Transportation Inspector General, Congress, and aviation users.

To assist airports that currently are in the FAA Contract Tower Program, FAA, AAAE and AAAE's affiliated organization, the U.S. Contract Tower Association (USCTA), is hosting a webinar from 2-4 p.m. eastern time on Friday, July 10. Airport management at FAA contract towers; officials from airports interested in getting into the FCT program; ATC-related companies; aviation users and other officials interested in the program should not miss this special opportunity to learn more about the FAA Contract Tower Program.

Topics will include procedures and future plans for FAA contract towers; ongoing federal budget challenges for contract towers; FCT staffing and hours of operation at contract towers; tower operating agreements; contract tower cost-sharing program; remote towers; perspectives of Congress and the U.S. Department of Transportation Inspector General on the program, and future contract tower issues and trends. Airports and FAA representatives will have ample time to discuss the challenges associated with the program.
