Midwest ATC Wins President’s Citation of Merit Award from ATCA
Midwest ATC’s team at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan, was recently awarded the President’s Citation of Merit Award from the Air Traffic Control Association. Midwest ATC Team Bagram serves the United States and NATO coalition forces under Operation Freedom’s Sentinel and Operation Resolute Support in a 24/365 combat environment. Our team members respond quickly to the dynamic operational tempo in the Southwest Asia AOR, and adapt and confront a variety of challenges each day. The team’s superior performance is reflected in both Quality Assurance Evaluation inspections and customer comments received. The team excels in the pursuit of excellence in safety and efficiency while controlling a wide variety of aircraft including military fixed and rotary wing, commercial air carrier and cargo, and UAVs, all the while managing multiple airfield construction projects without allowing disruption to the mission.
