As the aviation industry continues to recover from the impacts of a global pandemic, PASS recognizes the extraordinary efforts of the employees we represent at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Department of Defense (DoD) to ensure that the safety of the flying public is never compromised.
Since 1985, Congress has designated the first full week of May as Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) to show appreciation for the men and women who serve our nation as government employees. PSRW may only last a week, but PASS celebrates its members every day for the work they perform on behalf of the American public. “The workforces we represent are highly skilled, experienced and dedicated to the job of keeping our skies safe,” said PASS National President Dave Spero. “They never missed a beat from lockdown in March of 2020 to the increasing number of travelers we are seeing today,” he continued. “And because of their efforts, essential personnel, equipment and vaccines reached their destinations and Americans are able to resume their pre-pandemic travel.”
