47th IFASEA General Assembly Montreal, Canada
The 2017 IFATSEA assembly was very well organized by the Canadian colleagues, member of IBEW Local 2228, the Canadian union of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.Unfortunately only about 30 affiliates of 60 were attending to the assembly. The reasons are varying, some were not getting visa to Canada and some were apologized due to lack of time. The fact, that an assembly in northern America might be quite costly for some organizations eventually contributed as well. The rather little participation could be recognized during the whole assembly as less presentations and discussions took place as usual. Corporate presentations and speeches at the opening of the conference were as well reduced.However, the collaboration in the working groups as well as the exchange among participating affiliates was rich as always. Large contribution of the German and the Canadian colleagues has to be mentioned. They are contributing powerful during the entire year in different international working groups.

Position Paper on EU Aviation Strategy
In addition to the existing uniform European ATCO license, SATTA support calls for a uniform European license for ATSEP.
Safety takes the uppermost priority in air traffic, and given the current threats of terrorism,
it must be in the interests of all States to know which experts are working on safety-critical infrastructure.
This can only be ensured by a personal licensing.
Only such a license provides the proof of competence, ability and eligibility!

SATTA Social Event 2016 at the historic radio site at Beromünster
The SATTA social event took place on Monday, September, the 12th, 2016 at Beromünster. We visited the 217 m high antenna tower and the KKLB in the former station building. We got the rare opportunity to see the non-public antenna tuning building and the antenna tower. Strengthened by a regional aperitif, we walked back to KKLB www.kklb.ch. Along the way we got a glimpse of the green rolling hills of the Michelsamt. After arriving at the Beromünster transmitter building we were received by owner and artist Wetz, who showed us the building and explained the various artistic curiosities.
