Congratulations to our newest Accredited Airport Executive: David Staples, A.A.E. Airport Operations Officer at Philadelphia International Airport, who passed his final oral interview today at Washington Dulles International Airport.

Thank you to interview panel members Peggy Garcia, A.A.E., and John Robinson, A.A.E., of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. Thank you also to Marshall Stevens, A.A.E. from Harrisburg International Airport for mentoring David as well as his mentors in the Northeast Chapter.

Becoming an A.A.E. is a great way to command respect in the airport industry. Since 1954, AAAE has been committed to the advancement of aviation professionals by granting the A.A.E. designation to those who have demonstrated their ability to handle the responsibilities of airport management. The program is open to Affiliate members of AAAE and IAAE. Having an A.A.E. is a useful credential when seeking employment within the airport management profession.

You can learn more about the A.A.E. process and download an application on our website.
