If you check sports recaps every day, you’re accustomed to seeing players and coaches talk about what they did right and what they did wrong after every single performance. Their stats are shown in a box score. And a commentator is probably providing some additional analysis – debating whether the Washington Nationals should have tapped Max Scherzer to pitch in the wildcard game against Milwaukee this week, for example. You have to have a thick skin for that kind of scrutiny unless you’re the player starring on the highlight reel!
The FAA challenges undergraduate and graduate students to develop innovative ways to use smart technology in and around airports to enhance the overall travel experience.
I saw an old friend recently who felt a lot healthier after a lifelong struggle with diet and exercise.

When we started talking about NextGen over a decade ago and ever since, we’ve known that we faced a real hurdle to realizing the full benefits of a modernized system – mixed equipage levels among aircraft. Operators equip their aircraft at various paces, but we knew that we must have a critical mass of advanced avionics in our users’ fleet to get the most of our investments. The greater the variances in equipage in our national airspace system (NAS), the harder it would be to tap into NextGen’s full potential.
One of the most important things we can do in the FAA is make sure that we continue to develop and pass information down to the next generation. One way we ensure this occurs is through our internship program.
One of the reasons I make it a point of going to Oshkosh for the extraordinary annual fly-in is because I can see how our work affects the general aviation pilots who use our national airspace system every day.
