As I was surfing along this morning, I stumbled onto an editorial and was pleasantly surprised to see it was from Ruth Marlin. Ruth was the previous Executive Vice President for NATCA and she is running for President in NATCA’s next election. She also happens to be a friend.
Lift off for aviation leadership
”During the 2008 winter holiday season, 32 million Americans will travel by air. Eight million will arrive late. Aviation creates more than $1 trillion in economic activity, 12 million jobs and $400 billion in personal earnings. But despite its importance to the economy, the United States is rapidly losing ground as a global leader in aviation at a high cost to our airlines, passengers and economy.“
