CAT Magazine is 25 years old!

Posted Fri 17th Apr 2015 | Airline

With CAT Issue 3-2015, CAT Magazine will be 25 years old this year. This auspicious date comes as the FAA forecasts “continued, steady growth in air travel” over the next 20 years. “The improving economy continues to bode well for the health of the U.S air transportation system” said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. The report goes on to mention that revenue passenger miles (RPM) will grow at 2.5% p.a. over the next 20 years, load factors will increase from 83.4% to 84.2% in the same period and passenger numbers will hit one billion by 2029.

As industry and the FAA work together to implement Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) and some regionals are offering $5000 sign-on bonus to cope with forecasted growth CAT Magazine’s 25th Anniversary Issue will include three major features on the latest developments and challenges in training for Air Traffic Controllers, Regional Airlines and taking a look at the situation in Europe, at the latest training developments at Europe’s second largest Low Cost Carrier, EasyJet.

Against the backdrop of NextGen, the GAO reports on the cybersecurity challenges that face the industry and completing this major issue of CAT we take a look at mitigations and training available to counter the Cyber Security Threat.

If you would like to talk about CAT Magazine during WATS 2015 come and visit Natalie Morris and Jeremy Humphreys on the CAT Booth (number 113). We will also be there to discuss Halldale's future aviation training events: WATS 2016, APATS 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand in September and EATS 2015 which this year will be in Warsaw, Poland in November.

 I hope to see you at WATS 2015 - the world’s largest meeting of aviation training professionals - next week in Orlando.
