Longtime RTCA president, David Watrous, is stepping down at the end of August, according to a memo obtained by Avionics Magazine. Watrous, a former career officer in the U.S. Air Force and an instrument- and commercial-rated pilot, came to RTCA in 1989 and has served as its president since 1991. “I've truly enjoyed my time at RTCA. There have been many exciting challenges, opportunities and accomplishments over nearly two decades. Operationally, RTCA has helped modernize the air traffic control system in almost every dimension. From a business perspective, we've nearly quadrupled membership and significantly improved the financial posture of the organization,” Watrous said. Margaret Jenny was selected to succeed Watrous. Jenny’s experience includes technical director at MITRE Corp.; RTCA’s Free Flight Select committee; airline business and operations analysis division for US Airways; vice president for ARINC’s Corporate Business Development initiative; and most recently as CEO of MJF Strategies, a transportation/aviation consulting firm.
