IFATCA allows its members active participation throughout the year through its various Standing Committees, and in addition there is an Annual Conference held each spring, as well as a European Regional Meeting every autumn.
IFATCA Conferences are the most appropriate platform for direct communication between Member Associations, and for the exchange of ideas and experience within the Federation on an inter-regional basis.
Each region is responsible for organizing its own Regional Meeting, these are held annually, and enable each region to focus on it’s own particular concerns. In addition to attendance by Air Traffic Controllers these events are widely attended by other interested parties such as ATM equipment manufacturers, airlines, regulatory authorities and consultative bodies such as EUROCONTROL, EASA, SESAR JU as well as other Professional Staff Organizations such as ATCEUC, IFATSEA, ECA and ETF.
This event is usually covered by the host nations national media ensuring that Air Traffic Control receives the coverage and promotion it deserves.
IFATCA’s 35th Annual European Regional Meeting will be held in Dublin Ireland October 10th to 12th 2018.
