ADF Safety Summit set for Oct. 2-4, Dallas, TX.

The annual Safety Summit (formerly ADF conference) is set for October. 2-4.  This year, Southwest Airlines will host the event (similar to 2014).  The event hotel is the Doubletree by Hilton, Dallas Love Field.  ADF is currently working with the hotel for a group-rate.  This year's summit promises to be the best yet!  The speaker line-up will not dissapoint.  For the first time, vice presidents from major airlines will participate in a panel-type discussion.

ADF gets involved in Unmanned Aircraft Systems

While ADF is a professional organization promoting the interests of Dispatchers, the Board felt as though it is imperative to get involved with UAS operations.  As the UAS community evolves, the aircraft dispatcher must not be left out as beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) regulations are formulated.  The Board appointed Jake Zelman to represent ADF in the UAS community.
