VATUSA Traffic Management Unit: Launch
« on: August 27, 2020, 10:30:06 PM »
Dear Team VATUSA,

Over the last few months, membership's top request has been for VATUSA to establish a Traffic Management Unit (TMU) to manage the flow of air traffic throughout our airspace. After two exploratory working groups and feedback from Air Traffic Managers and Event Coordinators, we're excited to announce the launch of the VATUSA Air Traffic Control System Command Center (vATCSCC).

To lead the vATCSCC, VATUSA is announcing two staff appointments. Ryan Geckler has been appointed to the Division Command Center Director (VATUSA15) role and Jeremy Peterson has been appointed to the National Operations Manager (VATUSA25) role. Both Ryan and Jeremy bring real-world air traffic controller and Command Center experience to our newly established center. They're the right team to establish this new function.

In addition to the appointments, VATUSA is releasing details of how the Command Center will operate. More details about the release plans can be found at this link.

We hope you share our excitement for the launch of the program! Both Ryan and Jeremy will be releasing implementation details with ARTCC staff and VATUSA members in the coming weeks. Special thanks to Dhruv Kalra, Shane VanHoven, Maius Wong, Daniel Everman, Shane Friedman, Erik Quinn, Umar Ashraf, and Alex Ying for participating in our TMU work-groups to make this center a success.
