Keith Wallace, CEO stated, “LST is proud to be a new member of the AIA organization. We look forward to contributing to AIA-facilitated discussions and engaging with other aerospace and defense companies to further advance our industry.” David Almeida, LST’s Director of Air Traffic Management Analysis and Engineering, is the AIA-nominated member serving the Internal Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Information Panel. Richard Jehlen, Vice President of Air Traffic Management, is a member of the International Coordinating Council of Aerospace Industries Associations (ICCAIA) Communication, Navigation and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) Committee.
