While this report is a retrospective of FY19 accomplishments, it also offers a glimpse of the work to come and an outlook for the future. One of CAASD’s greatest strengths is our history operating as the FAA’s FFRDC and our deep understanding of aviation and Air Traffic Control operations, systems, and FAA oversight requirements and processes to drive the future.
CAASD is uniquely positioned with its significant knowledge of the FAA and a profound perspective of the National Airspace System (NAS). In addition, our international work, which is supported and encouraged by the FAA, provides us a global understanding of the challenges across the aviation landscape.
We remain committed to supporting the FAA and encouraged and excited to work with and on behalf of FAA Administrator Dickson’s new goals and focus, including safety and ensuring public trust, global leadership, stakeholder engagement, and fostering people and culture. We are also focused on a concerted effort to identify new and innovative initiatives as we look to help the FAA articulate the future vision of aviation—from surface to space.
