« on: November 11, 2023, 08:11:52 PM »
Hello hello hello!! With much excitement and fanfare, I announce the appointment of Mr. Brian N as Albuquerque's next Deputy Air Traffic Manager! Most recently Brian has served as ZAB's Training Administrator. In addition to his almost 350 control hours, Brian has amassed over 11,390 flight hours! Brian, a resident of Arizona, brings an extensive local knowledge base to our ARTCC. As he settles into his new role, he promises me that he will try to bring a semblance of wisdom and calmness, gleaned over the years of raising his three real-life kiddos, as he transitions into babysitting our ARTCC kiddos!   Welcome aboard Brian... now go and enforce some rules or something...
