At work – fourth part was advise to DCA

One of the categories in this blog is “At work“.

The first task in Namibia was to assist DCA in making ATS able to begin surveillance operations for area control.

The second task in Namibia was to assist DCA in making ATS able to begin surveillance operations for approach control.

The third task was to transfer skills to DCA/ATS staff.

The fourth task was to move my office to the DCA Headquarters. Here I was given a variety of tasks. I was given the role of being the advicor to DCA in the ATS area. I tried to assist ATS in becoming regulatory compliant and also started some work to prepare for the new ANS Oversight function.

Below are links to blog posts written during this fourth part (click on head-lines, not on photos!);
