Paul Rinaldi Presents Michael Huerta with Commemoration
Said Rinaldi: It was my great privilege today to present outgoing FAA Administrator Michael Huerta with this framed token of gratitude from NATCA. It commemorates his tenure and dedication to collaboration with a copy of the collective bargaining agreement that codified collaboration as the way we do business, and a quote that has guided our working relationship: "Great vision without great people is irrelevant." He is one of those great people who has enabled great vision to come to fruition. In large part due to his strong, effective leadership, the relationship between NATCA and the FAA has transformed for the better. I am proud of the collaborative partnership we have built together. This collaboration has enabled notable progress on NextGen and helped build a stronger workforce. Together, we have maintained the U.S. National Airspace System as the safest, most efficient, most complex, and most diverse system in the world.
