WASHINGTON – As everyone heads into the busy holiday travel season, the National Air Traffic Controllers Association has launched its newly-designed Web site – at natca.org – created to educate, as well as entertain, the traveling public about how the air traffic control system works and introduce them to the NATCA-represented safety professionals who help make the National Airspace System the safest in the world.

You can also catch up on the latest news from NATCA, from press releases to congressional testimony, get the latest information about flight delays and traffic information from major cities and watch YouTube videos about NATCA members and read our latest promotional materials. In addition, the site has quick links to our Facebook and Twitter pages (and a way to subscribe via RSS) where we provide news updates about air traffic control and NATCA, as well as facilitate interactive discussions and answer questions from air travelers.

There’s more to the site than union news and handy tools for the traveler – the new site also offers a special section devoted to informative publications such as the history of air traffic control and the history of NATCA. There’s also a “Kids Corner,” which includes activity books that can be downloaded not to mention a vast library of career materials for those interested in the air traffic control profession.

Also featured is a direct link to Avoid Delays (www.avoiddelays.com), a site run by NATCA that offers air travelers flight arrival and delay statistics for the country’s most popular airports in order to help them plan accordingly for upcoming trips.  Just in time for Thanksgiving travel, the site has been updated with the most up-to-date information.

“We are very excited to offer a new Web site that is designed with the flying public in mind, giving them a simple, easy-to-use and informative online resource to add to their ‘favorites’ list,” NATCA President Paul Rinaldi said. “NATCA is extremely proud of the highly-trained, highly-skilled safety professionals who work and maintain the safest, busiest and most complex airspace in the world. Our new site provides more information about who they are and what they do.”
