Russian Proscution Condemnation

Oct
31

The International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFATCA) strongly condemns the Russian prosecutors’ decision to charge air traffic controllers with “causing multiple deaths through negligence by breaching air safety rules”, following the accident of October 20 at Moscow's Vnukovo airport and before the official investigation on the causes of this tragic event.

This decision does not respect the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) requirement for accident investigation to establish factual causes, with the aim to prevent future occurrences. As the accident is still under investigation with no formal conclusions at this stage, it is shocking to see controllers publicly identified and already being charged with criminal offense. In a factual statement issued by the Interstate Aviation Committee (MAK) on the 24th of October the sequence of events described do not indicate any form of criminal negligence by the Air Traffic Control staff on duty.

International Day of The Controller

Oct
15

On October 20th, IFATCA invites everyone to join and celebrate the International Day of The Controller. The day coincides with the constitutional meeting of our Federation, held in Amsterdam in 1961. Member Associations around the world organise events for their members and/or a wider audience. It puts our profession, which is still relatively unknown to the general public, in the spotlight.

To help spread the word, IFATCA has designed a flyer, a poster and a video. The flyer can be found here.

The video can be watched here.

Anyone that wants to download the official Day of the Controller 2014 poster, here are the links:

Those are quite large (45Mb). If you want to share just the picture, get a good quality one here.

Vale Tinus Olivier

Jul
25

On the 21st July 2014 IFATCA lost a good friend the passing of Tinus Oliver, from South Africa, after a long illness. Tinus was known to many of us from his very active involvement in our South African member association, and his involvement with IFATCA’s TOC and PLC, including as Chairman TOC.  Tinus was instrumental in hosting IFATCA meetings in South Africa and was a valued supporter of IFATCA.

Tinus had a varied and successful career, in the South African Air Force, and then civil ATC in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and also in safety, regulation oversight and management roles. He achieved a lot in lifetime, personally and professionally, and was highly respected by all who knew him.
