The activity was carried out via Zoom to professionals who are providing services countrywide, from the Chacalluta Airport, in Arica, to the Airfields and Airports at the country’s center-south and the Chilean Antarctic.

The teleconference was moderated by Chile’s Air Controllers College president, Jorge Caro, from Teniente Marsh Airfield, on the frozen continent, in a meeting that lasted for almost two hours.

CEFAA’s Director thanked the ATCs for their collaboration since the creation of the Committee on October 3, 1997, and, as a tribute to the professionals, exhibited a historical video on the origins of this specialty in Chile.

On the occasion, Executive Director Camus explained the organization chart of the Committee, mentioning the permanent team, the Internal and External Advisors and delegates from the Armed Forces, Order and Security.

He made a brief historical summary of the beginnings of the official investigation of these phenomena -in the year 1968- and the investigative work with its different stages that must be fulfilled following a rigorous protocol developed in recent years.

The attendees saw the analyses of images and videos of anomalous aerial phenomena that are performed on a daily basis to the material that is reported through the web www.cefaa.gob.cl or sent by email to cefaa@dgac.gob.cl

The air traffic controllers also listened to original audios along with video recreations of prominent aeronautical cases that have taken place between 1983 and 2018, which were used to explain the characteristics of these phenomena.

The ATCs participated actively in the meeting, asking questions about the subject, the work being done and how they can collaborate as advisers to CEFAA.

Hugo Camus thanked the ATCs for the support provided in terms of information and reports received in 23 years and the permanent collaboration of these professionals.
