It is with great pleasure that CI² Aviation announces that our very own ATC, Mr. Michael Hall, is this year’s recipient of the ATCA Andy Pitas Aircraft Save Award.
Mr. Hall was working a normal Monday closing shift at Rogers Tower (ROG), Rogers, Arkansas on November 30, 2020, when a local pilot experienced inflight difficulty and declared an emergency. Mr. Hall’s experience kicked-in immediately and he promptly initiated emergency response procedures.
Mr. Hall provided flight assistance that resulted in the safe recovery of an emergency aircraft through the application of exceptional air traffic services and prevented a possible aircraft accident and loss of life.
Congratulations Mr. Michael Hall! We are so proud of you and you are well deserving of such an Honor!
