October General Membership Meeting
October 4, 2019 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm PDT
Members and guests are welcome to join us for our General Membership meeting and Dinner.
This month’s program is a presentation on “Building Highways in the Sky” by Steve Fulton.
Doors open at 6:30 and the menu varies each month. RSVP is requested the Monday prior to the Meeting so that the meal may be planned.
Steve Fulton is a pioneer in the design and implementation of modern Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) instrument flight procedures and the modernization of airspace operations. As a Technical Pilot at Alaska Airlines beginning in 1992, he led the development of improved aircraft departure and arrival operations using Required Navigation Performance (RNP) beginning in Juneau, Alaska and then across Southeast Alaska. The leadership provided by Steve in this work resulted in significant safety and economic benefits that has served as a model for all subsequent US and international deployments of RNP. In February 2003, Fulton co-founded Naverus to provide RNP solutions for airlines and air navigation service providers around the world. In 2009, Naverus was acquired by GE Aviation.
Steve is currently a Captain for Alaska Airlines. In addition, Steve is active in advancing national airspace improvements, concepts of operations, and the development and certification of improved aircraft systems as President of Fulton Aviation, LLC. and an FAA Flight Test Pilot Designated Engineering Representative. Prior to joining Alaska Airlines in 1991, Steve was an avionics engineer and development pilot for Honeywell International. He earned a BS in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and is co-author of three US patents on air data formats for electronic primary flight displays and principles of RNP design. In April 2006, Steve was recognized for his work with an Aviation Week Laureate Award and in October 2011 with a Pathfinder Award from the Seattle Museum of Flight.
