Honoring America's Fallen Heroes
This Memorial Day
Millions of Americans throughout our nation's history have signed up for the armed forces to defend our nation. Many served during a time of war, knowing that they may make the ultimate sacrifice in service to others. Memorial Day is a sacred day when we as a nation honor the courage and sacrifice of those who have laid down their lives and support the ones they've left behind. NATCA honors the lives of those members of the armed forces who lost their lives. We acknowledge the great personal loss that is a reality for many veterans and their families.

The last year and a half have been hard on many Americans, and this weekend of remembrance may add to the already heavy burden for you or someone you know.

On this day, your Union family stands with you. You have our gratitude and support.
Trish Gilbert Elected as IFATCA EVP Americas, Succeeding NATCA President Emeritus John Carr
During the 2021 International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFATCA) annual conference, the member associations (MA) from the Americas Region elected NATCA Executive Vice President (EVP) Trish Gilbert to be the EVP for their region and join the Federation’s Executive Board. IFATCA is the international organization that represents more than 50,000 air traffic professionals in more than 130 countries. The Americas Region includes 25 countries in South, Central, and North America and the Caribbean.

In her comments to IFATCA’s member associations prior to the vote, Gilbert talked about how she has been blessed to have the career of air traffic controller and how it has been the “honor of a lifetime to represent the women and men that keep our skies safe.” 

Gilbert added, “During my tenure as NATCA EVP, I have had the pleasure to work closely with many of you in IFATCA. I have come to appreciate and admire the critical role that the Federation plays in the lives of ATCOs in the many MAs across the globe. I look forward to working with the IFATCA Executive Board, its committees, and representatives.”
About Gilbert joining the Federation’s leadership, IFATCA President & CEO Duncan Auld stated, “We welcome Trish Gilbert on to the Board. It appears that she’s up for a challenge. It is not a great time to be kicking off with anything. But we thank her for giving us the chance to work with her.”

Gilbert is replacing former IFATCA EVP for the Americas Region John Carr. He was first elected to the position at the end of IFATCA’s 2014 annual conference in Gran Canaria, Spain. He was re-elected at IFATCA’s 2016 annual conference in Las Vegas and also at its 2018 annual conference in Accra, Ghana. Carr served two terms as NATCA president from 2000-2006.

About Carr ending his time in the Federation’s leadership, Auld said, “John Carr will be leaving us after seven years of service on the Executive Board. He joined bringing a wealth of knowledge from his time in leadership of NATCA. Working hard with associations and prospective associations in particular the Central and South America regions, he took the issues to heart. And his dedication and commitment were shown with the multi-year campaign with the Dominican Republic. There are some guys there and in other countries that owe their freedom to the work that John did. His dedication and commitment to the objectives of the Federation and his progress in the region deserve recognition.”
AOPA's Richard McSpadden Confirmed to Speak at CFS; Registration Opens June 2
Registration for Communicating For Safety (CFS) 2021 opens June 2 and those attending the event at Bally’s Las Vegas (Sept. 27-29) will be treated to a visit by one of the nation’s leading aviation safety experts. Richard McSpadden, former Air Force Thunderbirds commander and now the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) Air Safety Institute (ASI) Senior Vice President, will speak at a time when pilot-controller communications are improving and opportunities to interact are becoming more popular.

McSpadden says he has noticed the increased participation in pilot-controller seminars and the expansion of training and learning opportunities both online and, now, safely in person.

“I love it! It's so positive for aviation,” McSpadden said. “I remember when the controller/pilot relationships were adversarial. Pilots didn't trust controllers and likewise, controllers were suspicious of pilot intent. Now I see a much more collaborative and positive relationship.”

McSpadden was appointed executive director of the ASI in February 2017 and was promoted to senior vice president in July 2020. He currently leads a team of certified flight instructors and content creators who develop and distribute free aviation safety material in order to advance general aviation safety industrywide. ASI distributes material through a dedicated YouTube channel, iTunes podcasts, Facebook, and a dynamic website. ASI material is accessed 12 million times annually.
“Some of our most popular seminars are our ‘Ask the Controller,’ which NATCA has helped us deliver,” McSpadden said. “They always go long, with more questions than we have time to answer. It helps to dispel myths and urban legends. Pilots get direct, accurate answers from a source they can trust. It's great to see pilots react to the face behind the voice and realize, you're just professionals, trying your best to be good at your job, just like we're trying our best to be good pilots.”

A native of Panama City, Fla., McSpadden started flying as a teenager and has logged over 5,000 hours flying a variety of civilian and military aircraft. McSpadden is a commercial pilot, CFII, MEI with SES, MES ratings and a 525S (Citation Jet Single Pilot) type rating. He taught his son to fly, instructed his daughter to solo in their Piper Super Cub, previously owned a 1950 Navion that was in his family for almost 40 years, and currently owns a 1993 Piper Super Cub.

“My father inspired my brother, a UPS 747 captain, and me,” McSpadden said. “As early as I can remember, we were building model airplanes and flying hand toggled airplanes around in a circle. I got hooked as a junior in college, when I saw how much my Dad was enjoying his flying lessons. I started soon after him, in Greensboro, N.C., at a small airport, Air Harbor (W88), and then signed up for Air Force ROTC to fly for the USAF.”
McSpadden served in the Air Force for 20 years, including the prestigious role of commander and flight leader of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds flight demonstration team where he led over 100 flight demonstrations flying the lead aircraft.

16th Annual Archie League Medal
of Safety Award Winners' Spotlight
Southwest Region: Christopher Clavin and Randy Wilkins, Fort Worth Center (ZFW)
Fort Worth Center (ZFW) air traffic controller Randy Wilkins (pictured left) has worked enough general aviation traffic in his 13 years there to know that while he and his colleagues aim to provide the best support they can and the most information possible to pilots who encounter difficulty, ultimately, it’s up to the pilot to finish off a safe landing.

But Wilkins is passionate about training and developing his base of knowledge in as many different ways as he can to be prepared for challenging situations. That includes researching air safety investigations in his spare time, looking at how past NATCA Archie League Medal of Safety Award-winning controllers handled situations, watching YouTube instructional videos of VFR pilots encountering IFR conditions, and learning about the dangers of pilot vertigo in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC).

“You watch a video and think, ‘well, what would I do? Would I know to say that? Would I know to think about this?’ So I really fall back on those replays,” said Wilkins, who said one of the most important things he learned from watching other Archie League Award event replays is the importance of being calm on the radio, as it helps keep the pilot calm and focused. “If I was a pilot, I would think, ‘if that was me, what would I want to know, and what would I want somebody to say to me before I did this?’ The worst thing you hear about is people getting disoriented and flipped upside-down. The likelihood of getting disoriented in clouds if you’re not used to it is pretty high.”
That was the situation a Cessna 150 pilot faced in Wilkins’s airspace as he flew in solid IFR conditions near the boundary of Kansas City Center (ZKC) airspace, between Oklahoma City approach control and Tulsa approach control. He was lost, definitely under stress, and sought help through the Guard radio frequency. He ended up talking to a Southwest Airlines pilot who was trying to figure out where he was.

Five years ago, ZFW began piping the Guard frequency into the operation. Wilkins says that alerted him to this situation. He got the pilot onto a ZFW frequency, brought up his location on radar, and gave the data block an EMRG designation for emergency.
“(Guard) is absolutely helpful in situations such as this. I think it’s very important and very useful,” said Wilkins, an Indiana native who graduated from Purdue. He started in engineering but later switched to Aviation Technology, Purdue’s CTI program.

The pilot was having trouble holding altitude and did not have the power to climb well. He was talking pretty well with Wilkins but then became frustrated and began to fly in circles.
At that point, fellow controller Chris Clavin (pictured left), a Long Island, N.Y., native who began his career at ZFW three years ago, was working initially in the Ardmore sector near the end of his shift but heard the chatter on Guard. He sat down with Wilkins and the two controllers worked to find a place for the pilot to fly to and land safely. 
 
“While Randy’s dealing with talking to the pilot, I was just trying to get the most up to date weather information that I could between Stillwater, Kansas City Center, Oklahoma City Approach, and Tulsa Approach to see if they had any guys going VFR in the airports around there,” Clavin said. “I was just trying to make sure that Randy didn’t have to do any coordination. It was my job to make sure he could focus on the pilot and I’ll take care of all the other stuff.”
 
The only good weather report was from the west side of Oklahoma City airspace, but the pilot was too far away to reach it with only ¼ tank of fuel remaining. Wilkins told him to focus on his instruments, don’t look out the window, and keep his wings level and airspeed up.

“You could see him going through the process of learning how to fly, either on his instruments or however he was doing it,” Wilkins said. “You could see him getting better and better at taking control of his aircraft. That might have saved his life - the 10 minutes he had to get used to flying in a manner like that, rather than saying, ‘I’ve gotta get through the clouds now.’ That’s how it looked to me.”

The landing spot was picked - Chandler Municipal Aiport (CQB), located near Interstate 44 between Oklahoma City and Tulsa. The ceiling was only 900 feet but better than other options. At that point, Wilkins and Clavin lost radio communications as the pilot descended beneath 2,500 feet. They put him on an advisory frequency, relayed information through another general aviation pilot, and waited for word that he landed safely. 
“You don’t want to think the worst, but there’s other things going on in the sector that we had to take care of,” Clavin said. “It felt like 20 years before we finally got the update that he was on the ground.”

Clavin expressed gratitude at being selected as an Archie League Medal of Safety Award winner.

“After seeing previous years’ winners and looking at all of those events, it’s definitely an honor,” Clavin said. “I will be honest and say that, as the assistant, I don’t feel that I deserve nearly as much credit as Randy does. But I’m glad I was able to help and do anything I could.”

Wilkins says he looks at past winners with amazement and a “how did they do that?” wonder, but places high value on each event’s training value. He marvels in particular at the 2013 President’s Award-winning flight assist by Boston ATCT (BOS) controller Nunzio DiMillo that saved lives when DiMillo saw a Cirrus SR22 erroneously lined up to land on a taxiway occupied by a JetBlue flight.

“To be categorized like that is an honor, and I really hope that people can take it and learn something from it, because that’s really what this is all about,” Wilkins said. “It’s about honoring the controllers that did a good job, but I try to use it as a training tool to say, ‘here’s what happened and this is what you can do if you get into this situation.’ That’s what I really hope comes out of it.”

Honoring NATCA Members During Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month
Every May, Americans recognize the contributions and influences of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. Today, we are honored to recognize NATCA member Dan Nakamitsu.
Dan Nakamitsu is an air traffic control specialist who began his career in November 2000 at New York Center (ZNY) and transferred to Honolulu Control Facility (HCF) in 2008. His father worked for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in Airway Facilities at the time and encouraged him to consider becoming an air traffic controller. “Although I was always interested in modes of transportation, I didn’t think I would like it,” said Nakamitsu. “However, after attending an air traffic control training program in Minneapolis, I came to the realization that the profession was a way to combine my love for puzzles and aircraft.”

Nakamitsu has been a NATCA member for almost 21 years, and although in the regular world, being Asian American/Pacific Islander can lead to feelings of being foreign or invisible, Nakamitsu says he has been spared that experience in the workplace. “Beginning my career in a high pressure, high density environment like New York certainly instilled qualities of assertiveness, persistence, and resilience," he said. "Those traits, as well as the fraternal nature of being part of NATCA, allowed me to be heard and seen."

Nakamitsu believes continued outreach to minority communities in the form of education or community service could help lead people to seek employment in the aviation field. “Also, within NATCA, empowering minority communities of any kind to volunteer for assignments could lead to greater visibility,” he said.

“As air traffic controllers, the public knows us by our voices — voices without color or ethnicity, but singular in spirit, of indistinguishable resolve, and equally committed to safety. For although we may be many, we speak in one voice, with one purpose, and for one mission. Today, my face, an Asian Pacific American face, to be seen and correlated with that powerful NATCA voice is both humbling and an honor. I have had the pleasure and privilege of being elected by colleagues as a representative in our Union. As one member of a larger family,  I am proud that together we contribute to the safest, most efficient air traffic control system in the world. Most of all, however, I am proud to be Union and proud to be NATCA."

RNAV Member Completes 250-Mile Race Across Arizona
Retired NATCA Active Volunteers (RNAV) and Boots On The Ground member Noel Kingston recently completed a 250-mile race across Arizona. The Cocodona 250 links together some of the most iconic trails and towns in Arizona for one monumental undertaking of 250 consecutive miles. 

“I love the mental and physical challenges of these extreme distance races with the added bonus of seeing amazing scenery and hanging out with great people,” Kingston said. “I feel fortunate that I was physically able to participate in this race and would absolutely do it again.”
The race started in Black Canyon City, Ariz., an hour north of Phoenix and featured close to 42,000 feet in cumulative gain (and 37,000 feet in cumulative loss) before its finish in Flagstaff. The heat and tough conditions led to more than 60 runners dropping out of the race before completion, but Kingston persevered, completing the 250 miles in 4 days, 12 hours and 11 minutes. Kingston averaged 56.9 miles per day, also celebrating his birthday while on the trail.

National Office Staff Employee
Spotlight: Mark Prestrude
We have an amazing National Office staff that our membership can be very proud of. They work hard every day and are committed to providing our members with the very best service and representation in organized labor. Today, we feature En Route Technology Representative Mark Prestrude. Thank you for your service to our NATCA family, Mark! 
Where are you from, or what places have you lived? 
Prestrude: I grew up in North Dakota and lived for most of my life in Utah.

Where did you go to school, or what other education do you have? 
Prestrude: I went to high school in North Dakota, and I have an associate's degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Salt Lake Community College in Utah. 

How did you come to work at NATCA?  
Prestrude: After I retired from the FAA in 2013, I noticed the job opening posted in a Retired NATCA Active Volunteers (RNAV) group and knew the job would be awesome. I applied and received a very pleasant reply explaining that at this time they had decided not to fill the position. I truly didn't expect to be hired and remember thinking that was a nice way of saying thanks, but no thanks. Then about four months later, I got a call from (retired member and former Safety and Technology Director) Dale Wright asking if I was still interested, and I was, but I also thought, wow, they must be having a hard time filling this. I flew to D.C. for an interview with Dale, Paul, and Trish, and to my surprise, was offered the position.

Do you have family members who are involved in unions?  
Prestrude: My sister Becky and her husband Darrell Salberg are retired International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW) members, and my sister Ann Wendel has been active in her teacher's union so I have been able to hear how other professions’ unions work for their members. 

What's the most rewarding part of being a member of NATCA’s staff?  
Prestrude: As a Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization (PATCO) controller that was fired in 1981 and rehired in 1997, I know how much I personally owe this organization. Without NATCA, very few PATCO controllers would ever have had the opportunity to get their dream job back. So the most rewarding part of being a member of NATCA’s staff is to work for the membership of an organization that gave me the chance to complete a great career in the FAA.

What's the most challenging? 
Prestrude: Understanding and accepting how long it takes the FAA to deploy new technology.

Do you have any hobbies or any other activities you enjoy outside of your work for NATCA? 
Prestrude: Taking a trip anywhere with my wife Lynette!

Has there been a favorite moment for you while at NATCA?  
Prestrude: Not long after I started I found myself in the elevator with Barry Krasner and just had to tell him what a privilege it was to be working at NATCA, and with him, and in a building named after him. I'm sure I was like a little kid, and he must have thought, “What's up with the new guy?”
