FAA’s Huerta to speak at Wichita Aero Club

FAA Acting Administrator Michael Huerta will speak at the Wichita Aero Club’s monthly luncheon Oct. 11.

While the club usually meets towards the end of the month, it slated its October luncheon earlier to accommodate Huerta’s schedule, officials said. The time of the luncheon also has moved, starting at 12:30 p.m.

Huerta, who assumed his current interim role on Dec. 5, 2011, is responsible for the safety and efficiency of the largest aerospace system in the world. He oversees a $15.9 billion budget and more than 47,000 employees. Huerta also oversees the FAA’s multi-billion dollar NextGen air traffic control modernization program as the United States shifts from ground-based radar to state-of-the-art satellite technology.

The luncheon will be held, as usual, in the Grand Ballroom of the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton at Wichita Airport, from 12:30 p.m to 1:30 p.m. Reservations can be made by clicking here
