NATCA Sponsors Va. Air Show, Promotes Profession

On Sept. 14-16, NATCA was the proud sponsor of the annual Oceana Naval Air Station Air Show held in the Hampton Roads, Va., area. This airshow is not only one of the oldest, but also one of the most popular on the East Coast with over 300,000 people in attendance over the course of the three-day event.

Numerous Norfolk Tower NATCA members, most notably Norfolk Facility Representative Glenn Griffin and NATCA member Brynn Madamba, helped the event go off without a hitch. Members took every opportunity to promote the air traffic control profession. The NATCA balsa wood aircraft became one of the most sought after items by the children in attendance. Along with the many aircraft enthusiasts gathered from all around the country, members had the chance to meet numerous military air traffic controllers that work in the area.
