Furthermore, NBAA ATS facilitates training to ensure that our Flight Operations team is knowledgeable about new initiatives. Given our close geographical proximity, this has meant several visits between our operation and the Command Center. As a result of the training received from NBAA ATS, ARINCDirect operates in a self-sufficient manner in the NAS and is able to engage personally with the FAA and ATC Command Center. In particular, ARINCDirect is able to provide delay mitigation by requesting improvements to EDCTs (Expected Departure Clearance Times) directly from the controlling ATC facility or with the tactical advocate at the Command Center.
As we all continue to navigate the increasing demand for business aviation, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is rewarding to collaborate with NBAA Air Traffic Services and pass the benefits of that relationship along to our own customers.
