    Happy National Aviation Day!

    Posted by Bailey Wong on Wed, Aug 19, 2015

    National Aviation Day was established in 1939 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in honor of the Wright brothers. However, the date specifically represents Orville Wright's birthday, August 19, 1871. The Wright brothers' success was due to many factors, but their innovative thinking and innate passion for aviation really set them above the rest.

    Since their first successful flight in 1903, the aviation industry has grown tremendously and continues to excel and advance. 

    The Team at NATACS wants to know:

    Who do you think are some less recognized, but just as influential people in the aviation industry as the Wright brothers? 

    Have a happy and safe National Aviation Day!

    Posted by Brenda Stoltz on Thu, Nov 27, 2014

    With another holiday season just around the corner, many travelers are making plans to see friends and family. Serving and protecting these holiday travelers is the job of everyone in the airline industry. Because the holidays are one of the busiest times of the year to fly, now is the time to think about ways to prepare your staff for the crowds, the delays, and the stressed-out, impatient, angry passengers. A little planning can help reduce angry passengers and improve the morale of staff.

    Tips For Airline Fliers Worried About Ebola

    Posted by Brenda Stoltz on Thu, Oct 16, 2014

    The recent Ebola outbreak has grown to infect people outside the Western African regions where it originated with more than 68 scares here in the United States since the beginning of August. While none of these scares turned out to be real, airline travelers may find they are experiencing increased anxiety about flying as reports continue to surface.

    “On the airplane, we are constantly touching stuff that hundreds of other people are touching...” says Brenda Powell, MD, from the Cleveland Clinic. Since Ebola and other communicable diseases can survive outside of bodies for some time, taking simple precautions beyond washing hands can go a long way towards keeping passengers healthy, whether they are worried about Ebola or any other infectious diseases.

    Lighter and Faster: How Airlines Are Saving Fuel Today

    Posted by Brenda Stoltz on Thu, Jul 17, 2014

    Fuel is the number one expense for airlines, so it’s no surprise that they continuously seek new ways to reduce their fuel use. While air carriers can’t immediately replace their existing fleets with new, fuel efficient aircraft, they can make subtle changes that make them cheaper to operate.

    The Future of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) or Drones

    Posted by Brenda Stoltz on Thu, Jun 26, 2014

    There is a lot of news about companies like Amazon and Domino’s Pizza using unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), or drones, to expand their operations. Until commercial use is permitted, however, these ideas will remain just attention-grabbing headlines. Yet pressure has been mounting this past spring for the FAA to develop a process for authorizing and regulating UAS, which can’t come fast enough for those who are skirting the law and making money on UAS.

    Posted by Brenda Stoltz on Thu, Feb 06, 2014

    It looks like winter is continuing to roar into 2014, with snow and ice shutting down schools and businesses in places it hasn’t snowed in more than a generation, like southern Mississippi. Naturally, this greatly affects air transportation industries.

    The Flight of Icarus

    Posted by Brandon Bernard on Sun, Apr 07, 2013

    The Greek legend of Icarus is a tale of caution. Daedalus was a talented Athenian craftsman who built the Labyrinth for King Minos of Crete to imprison the Minotaur. However, the king imprisoned Daedalus and his son, Icarus, in the Labyrinth as punishment for giving the king’s daughter a ball of string that allowed Theseus to defeat the Minotaur and get out of the Labyrinth. Daedalus designed two pairs of wings, one for him and another set for Icarus. These wings were made of wax and feathers. Daedalus told his son before their first test flight that he should follow him, instructing him to avoid the sea and beware of getting too close to the sun. In a classic example of hubris and failed ambition, Icarus became so excited about the ability to fly that he began to soar higher and higher. With wings made of wax, Icarus soon found that he was only flapping his arms for the wax had all melted away and no feathers remained. He crashed and drowned in the sea that would be named after him, the Icarian Sea. Flying too close to the sun has now become synonymous with hubris and is something to be avoided.

    Until now!

    Client Testimonials

    "I have to say that using NATA is the the best decision I have made in starting and running our 135 Dept. Early on Emily and the entire group never got tired of my endless questions! *Not that they showed anyway;-). We use them for EVERYTHING, starting at PRIA, Drug Program, Records Storage, all the way thru Audit Prep and just answering all my questions. I seriously could not do this without them. Even when my rep Emily is busy, I can rely on Claudia, or Dan for immediate help. The service we receive is well worth what we pay and then some!!"

    I got a gold star from the TSA inspector who inspected our flight school last year, but that's because my company paid me ground time to research AFSP and make a new AFSP student checklist. Even so, I had one (of 3) AFSP applicants rejected initially due to some of the errors you talk about in the blog. I just wanted to shoot you an email and say thanks for making the effort to clarify the process for all of us. I get the impression that there are a lot of the CFIs out there in the small flight schools who haven't got a clue about the AFSP process. So go ahead and feel good about yourself for helping all us lost boys stay in business and out of the trouble.
