NextGen Advisory Committee invites ATCA CEO to serve

The Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) President and CEO Peter F. Dumont has been invited to serve on the NextGen Advisory Committee (NAC), a Federal advisory committee of high-level government officials, industry representatives, and labor leaders, the company said.

Established in September 2010, the NAC was formed to help foster collaboration within the aviation community and provide advice on policy-level issues surrounding airspace modernization and NextGen technologies. Dumont will serve as an air traffic management (ATM) association stakeholder.

Dumont brings more than 30 years of experience in various segments of aviation. After retiring from the Navy as an air traffic controller, Dumont began his private sector career with Serco, Inc., where he served as both Vice President of Aviation and later Chief Operations Officer.

The Air Traffic Control Association is dedicated to the progress and safety of air traffic control and works to advance the technology and professionalism of the industry. Founded in 1956 by a group of air traffic controllers, ATCA serves nearly 3,000 members throughout the world–individual air traffic controllers, as well as aviation associations, educational institutions, the government and military, and companies managing and providing equipment and services in the aviation community.
