The Northwest Mountain Office of the Regional Administrator is one of nine offices that comprise National Engagement and Regional Administration. The Regional Administrator, as the Senior FAA Official in the geographic area, provides leadership on key agency priorities, such as horizontal integration across the FAA Lines of Business and Staff Offices to ensure the Agency is providing consistent stakeholder support and engagement.
The office partners with Federal, state and local governments and others to promote aviation safety and education across the region. The office addresses airspace and procedure modernization, runway safety, aviation workforce development, finance, information technology, policy, human resources, and civil rights.
The Northwest Mountain Region is home to the Western Service Center in Des Moines, Washington. Major aviation activity results from the Core 30 airports located in the Region, including Denver International, Seattle/Tacoma International, and Salt Lake City International. FAA's Northwest Mountain Region Airports Division oversees certification and safety of airports in the Region.
One of FAA's three Regional Operations Centers is located in the region to manage response activities and information sharing during aircraft accidents and other emergencies impacting aviation operations. The office also coordinates with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and other Federal agencies to ensure that preparedness, response, and recovery activities are effectively managed for crisis and emergency operations related to natural disasters and major special events.
STEM Aviation and Space Education
Within the region, FAA's Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Aviation and Space Education (AVSED) Program is an integral part of agency outreach and the national education system. The program was established to expose students to aviation and aerospace careers and to promote STEM education.
