ACC News | A YP Perspective on Planning & Environmental

I really appreciate the opportunity to be the young professional for the Planning and Environmental Track. I feel like I’ve already learned so much from our moderators and speakers just participating in the planning process. Our track will cover emerging topics like eVTOL, the Aviation Climate Action Plan, and how consultants, airports, and the FAA can plan for these in the future. Our other topics cover ongoing activities at airports, including environmental hot topics, capital planning, and land use, and will include opportunities to hear from airports currently navigating these matters. All five of our sessions will provide a range of perspectives including FAA, consultants, and airports, which I think will provide lively and informative discussions.


It has been an incredible learning experience getting to work with the Symposium Planning Committee. It’s neat to see people from all different disciplines and different companies come together and create an event that benefits so many people. This being my first time attending and having the opportunity to help plan the Symposium, has been an awesome experience. I’m excited to watch the event come together and I’m especially excited to hear from the Planning and Environmental Track speakers.
