Air Traffic Procedures Advisory Committee (ATPAC)

In 1975, the Federal Aviation Administration established the Air Traffic Procedures Advisory Committee as a standing group composed of air carrier, controller, general aviation, military, and pilot representatives to review air traffic control procedures and practices. The level of expertise and balanced viewpoint of this committee have enabled early identification of potential problem areas and accelerated early corrective action, thereby creating greater safety and public confidence in the Nation's air transportation system.


ATPAC meets 2-3 times a year, usually in the Washington DC area. Advance notice of meetings is published in the Federal Register at least 15 calendar days prior to the date of the meeting. Meetings are open to the public, space permitting.
