ERAM Discussion Video
While I was messing with the NATCA video, I happened to notice the video of the ERAM panel discussion in Las Vegas, back in March 0f 2011. Some folks might want to watch it.
For the non-controllers, it’s dry as dust. It’s full of acronyms I don’t understand. There’s nothing exciting to see. But as reference material, as historical documentation, as enlightenment -- I think it is valuable.
I do have to mention one thing (okay two things) to note. First, notice that the guy that dominates the discussion -- the one that really seems to know what he is talking about -- has a handwritten name plate. Typical irony. (Yes, he’s NATCA.) Second, the white-haired guy in the background when Sean (from Memphis) asks his question is me.
Communicating for Safety will be in Atlanta this year. I will be there. You can be too.
Hey! I just had another thought. My friend Spike (aka Stephen Ramsden, aka “The Sun Guy”) is one of the people that makes these videos possible. Somewhere in the mountain of titles he has earned is the one that says member of the NATCA Communications Committee. I bet Spike will be at CFS too.
I like to point out the awesome talent that the FAA overlooks (if not outright rejects) whenever I can.
