Hon. Linda Hall Daschle Named 2018 Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award Winner

ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) is pleased to announce that former FAA Acting Administrator Linda Hall Daschle has been selected as the 2018 recipient of the prestigious Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award, one of the most prominent awards in aviation and ATCA's highest honor.

Founded in 1956 by a group of air traffic controllers, ATCA serves nearly 4,000 members throughout the world--air traffic controllers, as well as associations, educational institutions, the government and military, and companies managing and providing aviation equipment and services.

A pioneer for women in air traffic management, Ms. Daschle was the first female to hold the post of Acting Administrator for the FAA. She began her aviation career in Kansas nearly 45 years ago as a licensed weather observer for the agency. In 1993, she was nominated by President Clinton and confirmed by the US Senate for the position of FAA Deputy Administrator. One of her first tasks involved an assessment of the agency's key air traffic modernization program called the Advanced Automation System which was eventually overhauled, saving the agency an estimated $1.6 billion. She also oversaw the advancement of new regional airline safety regulations and conducted a review of the agency's safety and surveillance program, which resulted in one of the single largest hires of new safety inspectors in FAA history. 

Ms. Daschle has held numerous government and private-sector leadership positions, including with the American Association of Airport Executives, the Air Transport Association, the former Civil Aeronautics Board, and with the law firm of Baker Donelson. She is currently President of LHD & Associates, Inc, and serves on the board of Aireon, LLC.

In accepting the Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award, Ms. Daschle joins aviation greats, including Delta's Richard Anderson, NATCA President Paul Rinaldi, the Hon. Jane Garvey, Boeing's Neil Planzer, former Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, and pilot A. Scott Crossfield.

Tickets will be available this month. For more information, visit https://www.atca.org/glengilbert
