Event description

Description

The National Gay Pilots Association is pleased to announce the 2018 NGPA Industry Expo Presented by United Airlines, which will be held on Friday, Feb. 9, 2018 at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel. Guest speakers and educational seminars for general aviation, business/corporate, and commercial pilots are in the lineup of events, including:

  • Col. William “Doug” Hall is the Director, Congressional and Interagency Affairs, U.S. Transportation Command, Washington D.C. office. He serves as the principle liaison between the U.S. Transportation Command commander and members of Congress as well as multiple military and government organizations throughout the National Capital Region. He has over 20 years of service and has flown the MC-130, the C-141, the C-5, and the C-17.
  • Flight attendant Doreen Welsh had only 90 seconds to focus on survival skills before US Airways Flight 1549 crash-landed into New York's Hudson River in 2010. Join Doreen as she takes participants on the emotional journey of that fateful day which became known as The Miracle on the Hudson.
  • On September 11, 2001, air traffic controllers accomplished the massive task of clearing the skies in a matter of minutes when United States airspace was completely closed. There are many accounts from that infamous day; this is an exclusive opportunity to listen to retired controllers Peter Zalewski and Tom Morin give first-hand accounts of how the situation unfolded from the inside out.
  • Breakout sessions and workshops focusing on LGBT issues, aviation education, and advocacy. Check back soon for more information on these great additions to the program!
  • A full list of keynotes, presentations, and workshops is available on the NGPA app, http://bit.ly/2Abstdn
