MCS Visits FAA

MCS members got an opportunity to visit the Federal Aviation Administration's Air Route Traffic Control Center in Memphis recently.  Cadets and Senior Members received an educational session on how air traffic is managed, got to meet with managers and meteorologists, and were able to actually sit with controllers to monitor air traffic communications and speak with controllers.  The event was preceded by an aerospace education lesson at our headquarters and a trip to the Memphis Air port Tower in December.  Thank you to ZME ARTCC for opening your doors to our Civil Air Patrol members.
