Flying is the easy part,
try integrating it!

Drones, reusable rockets, supersonics, UAM, hybrids, rotorcraft, ultralights, dirigibles, personal flying devices, airships, spaceports... We challenge you to find an aircraft that we don't mention! We have so much to talk about when it comes to new entrant technologies that nearly all our conference sessions cover them! Integration is the name of the game October 21 - 23.

SPOTLIGHT: Managing Increasing Complexity in ATM
New Concepts for NAS Operations that Meet Tomorrow's Challenges
Tuesday, Oct. 22 - 3:30 p.m. - Quesada Theater
Forget planes, trains, and automobiles. Tomorrow's transportation sector will include commercial space tourism, underground hyperloops, self-driving cars navigating smart pavement, and automation.

Join our panel of FAA leaders as they look at the trends, risks, issues, and opportunities in unmanned systems, commercial space, and manned aviation, as well as their effects on airspace operations.You won't want to miss this discussion.
Lisa Sullivan, Palantir, and Katie Pribyl, formerly of AOPA, spoke about generational workforce challenges at the 2018 ATCA Annual conference.
