Vol.8 Issue 8
Nearly sixty U.S. Court Executives visited the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center for participation in Leadership Labs

On Thursday, October 13th, a group of nearly 60 out of the 300 attorneys and judges in Oklahoma City chose to visit the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center. The focus of the visit was to learn how MMAC instills business acumen while maintaining a cost-conscious mindset to reduce budgets and services. The group attending was provided a choice of locations to visit, including the National Weather Center, the OKC Thunder Basketball facility, the University of Oklahoma football program, the Sonic Corporation, and the FAA MMAC. We were delighted they chose MMAC as the top place to visit and tour as part of their meetings.

The Directors and program managers across the Aeronautical Center provided special Leadership Labs giving these visitors an overview of the Center with emphasis on how MMAC leaders communicate vision and purpose, which ultimately impacts the safety and efficiency of the National Airspace System. Emphasis was placed on the importance of having strategic agility in the work environment.

Leaders from the Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI) and the FAA Academy also shared tools used to manage through the global health crisis and increase employee engagement. Discussions focused on the work environment, including the movement from air traffic control to air traffic management, and new technologies that are critical to the regulatory environment while shifting to performance-based vs. standards-based policies.

The tour was an enlightening excursion for all those who participated, giving them insight into one of the largest transportation agencies in the federal government and how the agency issues and enforces regulations covering the manufacturing, operation and maintenance of aircraft.
