our chair If the pace of change is ever quickening, so is the rate at which the course of a year and the events that happened during it have passed us by. It seems so soon but once again I am pleased on behalf of the Board of Directors of IAAE Canada to present our Association’s Annual Report to you the membership. At this point in 2009, our industry and our economy were in a dramatically different state. Thankfully, 2010 brought a solid recovery in traffic for the air carriers and for our airports. People and cargo took to the air again as global commerce rebounded from the ravages of the recession. The Canadian economy persevered through the downturn much better than most as did our airports. The economizing and streamlining which we all did out of necessity made us more flexible and better positioned to take advantage of the opportunities that came with the recovery. Although the economists and prognosticators are voicing caution about the prospects for 2011, the trend remains in a positive direction for our business with new opportunities for growth. The past year was likewise both positive and promising for IAAE Canada. Our membership reached an all time high. We held our most successful yet Operations & Facility Managers Conference in Niagara Falls in May. The M.I.T. Airport Systems Planning Course, which we co-sponsored with the GTAA in Toronto in June, was a resounding success. The first two issues of our glossy new IAAE Canada Airport Magazine were published. A full complement of training courses was delivered in various locales across the country. Through prudent financial management, we continued to produce cash surpluses and build members’ equity to reinvest in the organization for your benefit. Looking ahead to 2011, we are very excited about the renamed Facility Operations & Airport Managers Conference which will be held in Charlottetown at the end of May – a must attend for all. We are also excited about the projected mid-year launch of the first IAAE Canada web training courses as a valuable addition to our training portfolio. IAAE Canada plans to host a prestige Canada/U.S./Europe aviation issues conference in Montreal in August of 2012. Over the course of 2011, planning for the conference will proceed. Watch your mail boxes for further information on this important industry event. Through these and other initiatives, we are moving ahead to provide you and others in the industry with value in airport training and professional development. To date, the burden of keeping our association running on a day-to-day basis has rested fully on the shoulders of Tom Coupland, our Executive Coordinator. With the growth in our membership and programs, the Board came to the realization that the workload now exceeded the capabilities of a single person to manage effectively and efficiently. We therefore authorized the hiring of a second employee for the Hamilton office and welcomed Michelle Cretzman to the organization to support Tom. Working together, Tom and Michelle will be able to provide further service improvements and enhancements for the membership. One of the main strengths of IAAE Canada is the group of very capable and knowledgeable airport professionals who generously volunteer their time and energy to serve on the Board of Directors and associated committees. I would like to express my personal gratitude to all the Board members for their dedication and commitment to our Association and make particular mention of the three new members who joined the Board in 2010: Gerry Bruno, A.A.E, Jeff Huntus, A.A.E. and Kevin Lacey, A.A.E. I also must thank Eric Tolton, A.A.E. and Ian Darling, A.A.E., both of whom retired from the Board in 2010, for the lasting contributions that they made to the growth and betterment of IAAE Canada. I would strongly encourage all members to derive the maximum benefit from their IAAE Canada memberships by not only attending courses, conferences and other events but also volunteering to participate in committees or serve on the Board. Involvement in the activities of our Association is an ideal way to build your knowledge, expand your contacts, raise your personal profile and generally feel more a part of our global industry. Thank you for your continuing support and I hope that you will find this Annual Report an informative read. Bill Newman, A.A.E. Chair, IAAE Canada IAAE CANADA 2009 ANNUAL REPORT


year in review Following a year of fiscal restraint and caution necessitated by the recession and the resultant downturn in the industry, IAAE Canada resumed a full program of activities and new initiatives in 2010 intended to advance the Association further along the path to becoming Canada’s premier organization for the development of airport professionals. Decisions were made to invest in new ventures to further expand our portfolio of products and services to provide added value to our members specifically and to the airport industry generally. Described in this Annual Report are the results we achieved in the execution of these new initiatives and the ongoing operation and growth of the Association: New Initiatives: •Web-based Training Courses: The Board decided in 2010 to expand IAAE Canada’s training portfolio by adding web-based training courses. Development work commenced on a suite of introductory level courses with a targeted launch date of May 2011. •Airport Systems Planning Course: A completely filled M.I.T. Airport Systems Planning Course was held in June in Toronto. Given the success of this initial offering, future sessions are being planned. •Airport 101 Course: This new introductory level classroom course on airport operations and management was successfully held for the first time in Quebec City. The course will become part of the IAAE Canada course catalogue. •Operations & Facility Managers Conference: The fourth annual edition of the Conference was held in Niagara Falls at the end of May and continued to grow in attendance and program content. Planning started on the 2011 Conference set for Charlottetown. •2012 International Conference: The decision was made to move ahead with the planning of an international aviation issues conference to be held in Montreal in August 2012. The conference will be jointly organized by IAAE Canada, AAAE and IAAE. •IAAE Canada Airport Magazine: The inaugural issues of IAAE Canada’s glossy new magazine containing feature articles and information on airport issues, products and services were distributed to members. The twice yearly publication is a joint venture of IAAE Canada and Matrix Publishing Group. Ongoing Operations & Growth: •Membership: Membership continued to increase on a net basis reaching a year-end total of 286. •Training Courses: 18 of the 20 training courses originally planned for the year were delivered with a total attendance of 289. •Accreditations: Only one A.A.E. was conferred during the year with a number of candidates still at various stages of completion of the accreditation requirements. •Accreditation Candidates: An Accreditation Academy was held in Calgary resulting in 12 new candidates for the accreditation program. •Financial Performance: The year-end operating surplus of $36,850 exceeded target, serving to further build members’ equity and provide funding for re-investment in the Association. •Organizational Resources: To both maintain and improve membership levels, we welcomed Michelle Cretzman as the second staff member for IAAE Canada’s head office. This Annual Report is intended as a complete summary of the year’s accomplishments and a full accounting of the Board and staff’s undertakings to you the membership. We would encourage you to review the document in detail and direct any questions or comments to a Board member or to our Executive Coordinator.

our executive coordinator 2010, is now behind us. How time flies! It seems like only a few months ago we were working on the 2009 Annual Report. Never-the-less reflecting on last year, the biggest news from headquarters was the additional staff member in Michelle Cretzman as Administrative Assistant. Michelle’s flair for artistic creation along with her writing ability have enabled us to share the work load which already has increased, and we expect it to continue to do so into 2011. At the 2010 AGM we welcomed three new board members which increased our working board to 13. Of course we also bade a fond adieu to Eric Tolton who was the past Chair of the association and Ian Darling who just had too much on the go to give us his best. We thank them and wish them well. Go to the board page to see who the new members are. As in previous years, our AGM is now held in conjunction with our Annual Conference, which in 2011 will have a slight name change to The Facility, Operations & Airport Managers Conference, as this better reflects the people who are actually attending each year. We are delighted to say that each year it gets a little bigger, and each year we have the challenge to take it higher, which, thanks to our conference committee, we are doing. So 2010 was in Niagara Falls, a great location but not an easy fly in. Some found the drive from Toronto to Niagara a little long. We will try to keep it closer to the airport next time. Actually that will be in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, so that won’t be an issue. We have already got a great venue and a great lineup of topics and speakers to ensure you delegates will be well pleased they attended. Our current website which we launched in 2009 is still getting rave reviews and we are always looking at ways to tweak it to make it even better for the user. The forum, which is for members only, allows members to openly discuss issues and to get each other’s input into common challenges. Membership numbers once again climbed in 2010, even though we are seeing an increase of retirees in the industry. Thankfully many of these continue as Alumni Members to keep in touch with the industry. Despite a slow start we ended up holding 18 training courses and only had to cancel 2 for lack of attendance. We saw 289 personnel trained in these courses. We also sponsored, jointly with the GTAA, the Airport System Planning Course conducted by MIT professors Richard de Neufville, Amedeo Odoni & Peter Belobaba. This was the first time this course was presented in Canada, and we hope to repeat it in 2012. We are continually looking for more courses that would enhance the knowledge of our members and their fellow coworkers. We still continue to be optimistic about the future, especially as we see the industry change, with retirements and the inevitable restructuring of many airports and our foray into online training planned to launch in May 2011. We believe we will continue to succeed.

our chapters IAAE Canada encourages the formation of local chapters in those locations where there is a critical mass of members to support one. Local chapters serve to strengthen the relationships amongst members, promote networking and information sharing and provide an avenue for professional development and mentoring. To date, IAAE Canada chapters have been established at Toronto Pearson International Airport, Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario and at the University of Western Ontario located in London, Ontario.

Toronto Pearson The members of the Toronto Pearson chapter meet on a bimonthly basis. Typically, the meetings consist of a discussion of the latest Association news from across the country followed by a review of trends and occurrences affecting the aviation industry as a whole. Members are brought up to date on air carrier activities and strategies, airport developments and trends in the larger business environment. Each meeting members are also treated to a feature presentation or a site visit delivered by a fellow member or an invited guest. Presentation topics have ranged from leadership, energy management, and stormwater management to air cargo and eco-business parks, all with the purpose of expanding members’ knowledge and range of thinking about the industry in an atmosphere of collegial discussion and knowledge sharing.

Georgian College The Georgian College chapter came into existence in early 2008, is comprised of students enrolled in the Aviation Management program and is an extension of the Canadian Aviation Students Organization (CASO). Wil MacMillan, A.A.E. a graduate of the Georgian program advised the students on the formation of the new chapter and continues to serve as the mentor & liaison with IAAE Canada. In 2010 the Georgian Chapter was lead by Katrin Itten, President of CASO and Allison Couch. This chapter held meetings throughout the year that included presentations by industry speakers that provided the student membership insight into the many potential employment streams and more importantly gave them the opportunity to network with airport professionals. Further to their own meetings a few of the student members attended some of the Toronto Pearson chapter meetings thus broadening their opportunities to learn and network with Airport Professionals. A plaque was presented to the group in 2010 to officially recognize it as an IAAE Canada student chapter. The University of Western Ontario 2010 marked the first full year of the IAAE Canada Student Chapter at the University of Western Ontario. Through the great efforts of the Commercial Aviation Management (CAM) student council, membership at the University continues to grow. Jeff Barrow, A.A.E., an alumni of Western Ontario, was honored to be involved in the formation of the student chapter and will continue to participate as a mentor and liaison to chapter members in London, Ontario. IAAE Canada would like to thank the CAM Council, led by Council President Grant Thorner, for its continuing efforts, as the chapter continues to evolve and develop the spirit of IAAE Canada. A plaque was presented to the CAM members to officially mark their designation as an IAAE Canada student chapter. IAAE Canada views local chapters as an important avenue for professional development and membership growth. Through 2010 and beyond, efforts will be directed towards the expansion of existing chapters and the establishment of new ones, both at airports and educational institutions across the country. 7

our 2010 business plan Emerging successfully from the economic downturn which overshadowed the approach to business in 2009, the IAAE Canada Board of Directors set a business plan for 2010 based upon renewed investment in new products and services for members and strengthened organizational capabilities intended to move IAAE Canada further towards its vision of becoming Canada’s premier organization for the development of airport professionals. Effort was also devoted to the delivery and improvement of core training and professional development activities and the achievement of annual membership and financial targets. To maintain a leadership role in airport training and professional development, the decision was made in 2010 to enter the realm of web-based training. It is anticipated that training courses delivered via the internet will be of prime interest to those airports for whom it is neither economical nor practical to send staff to classroom training in other locations. The courses will also appeal to those who are new to the industry and are looking for an introductory level course for initial orientation purposes. A number of topic areas related to airport operations and management were identified and assigned to the Training Committee for the development of course modules. May 2011 was established as the target date for the launch of the first web-based training module. Two new classroom courses were also introduced during 2010. In partnership with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, IAAE Canada brought the prestigious M.I.T. Airport Systems Planning course to Toronto in June. Delivered by Professors de Neufville, Odoni and Belobaba, the course provided attendees with in-depth knowledge of airport planning and design, operations and management and airline operations and management. This initial session was so successful that plans are being made to hold future sessions on a biannual basis. Airport 101, a new introductory course on airport operations and management, was also held for the first time. Once again, the course was well attended and favourably received. As a result, the course will become a part of the IAAE Canada training curriculum. IAAE Canada continued to grow its premier Operations & Facility Managers Conference. The fourth edition of the Conference was held in Niagara Falls from May 30 to June 2. Featuring an array of presentations and speakers on current airport issues, the Niagara Falls Conference was the largest and most successful yet. A total of 112 delegates, speakers and exhibitors attended. The Conference organizing committee decided to further broaden the appeal of future events by changing the title to the Facility Operations & Airport Managers’ Conference and expanding the program to include general airport management topics. The fifth annual and expanded Facility Operations & Airport Managers’ Conference will be held in Charlottetown PEI from May 29 to June 1, 2011. The Board decided to broaden IAAE Canada’s specialty conference offering by approving the sponsorship of an international conference in 2012. An organizing committee was struck to work with AAAE and IAAE to organize a joint Canada/U.S./Europe aviation issues conference. Montreal was selected as the venue for the conference which is being planned for the latter part of August 2012. It is expected that the event will draw airport professionals from across Canada, the U.S. and Europe, providing an extraordinary opportunity for networking and knowledge sharing. Detailed planning for the Conference will be undertaken through 2011. 2010 saw the first fruits of IAAE Canada’s commercial arrangement with the Matrix Group Publishing Inc. to publish the IAAE Canada Airport Magazine. Under the arrangement, the magazine is being published on a semi-annual basis at no charge to IAAE Canada. The Matrix Group markets advertising space in the publication and retains the revenues therefrom to cover the publishing and distribution costs. The arrangement provides for revenue sharing once a prescribed level of financial return has been met. Two issues of the Airport Magazine were published as scheduled in May and December. IAAE CANADA 2010 ANNUAL REPORT


our 2010 business plan Efforts continued to promote IAAE Canada membership to students enrolled in aviation-related programs at colleges and universities across the country. The student chapters at Georgian College and the University of Western Ontario were given official recognition as IAAE Canada local chapters. Promotional efforts were also directed to other institutions with aviation programs to encourage the creation of similar student chapters. As an added incentive for students to join IAAE Canada, the Board approved a change in the student fee from an annual amount to a one-time payment of $75.00 for the duration of the student’s program of study. It became clear in the past year that the workload associated with maintaining the ongoing business of IAAE Canada plus developing new products and services for the membership had become too much for one fulltime employee supplemented by the efforts of individual Board members. To ensure that members continued to be properly served and to provide the capacity and capabilities for further growth, the Board decided to add an employee to support the Executive Coordinator. Michelle Cretzman was initially hired on a part time basis to assist Tom Coupland and then towards the end of the year, was converted to full time status. The additional resources are already yielding positive results for the timeliness and responsiveness of membership services and the lessening of administrative demands upon Board members. Overall, IAAE Canada met its business plan targets in 2010. Actual year-end results on key performance measures were as follows: •Net membership growth: IAAE Canada membership increased by a net amount (new members minus departing members) of 29 versus the target of 20; •Training course delivery: 18 of 20 scheduled courses were delivered representing a 90% completion rate against the target of 100%; •Completed accreditations: A target of 10 new A.A.E.’s was identified but only one was conferred by year-end. It appears that with heavier workloads and competing time priorities, candidates are requiring longer to complete all stages of the accreditation process; •New accreditation candidates: 13 new accreditation candidates were created compared to the target of 12 providing a renewed number of candidates for the accreditation process; and •Operating surplus: Year-end revenues exceeded expenses by $46,831 surpassing the target of $30,000. For the purposes of the 2011 Business Plan, targets have been set as follows: •Net membership growth: A net increase of 25; •Training course delivery: 18 of 20 scheduled classroom courses (90%) delivered plus 3 web-based training courses launched; •Completed accreditations: 4-6 new A.A.E.’s conferred reflecting a more realistic forecast of the likely level of achievement; •New accreditation candidates: 12 new candidates identified; and •Operating surplus: Revenues exceed expenses by $50,000. During the coming year, the Board will also be reviewing the IAAE Canada Strategic Plan which currently covers the period from 2007 to 2011. A new Strategic Plan will be prepared to guide the organization over the coming five-year period through 2016.

our committee reports Membership & Communications Committee Going into 2010, the Membership & Communications Committee established a set of goals focused not only on increasing IAAE Canada membership but also enhancing the range and quality of services for current members. The Committee’s efforts were directed to: 1. Achieving a net year-over-year increase in membership by adding a minimum of 20 new members and limiting member attrition to 5% of 2009 membership; and 2. Continuing to improve IAAE Canada membership services by developing new content for the web site, upgrading the editorial content of the weekly e-Report and arranging additional member discounts and preferred services. The initiatives taken by the Committee over the course of the year yielded positive results on both goals. A marketing plan to promote membership in IAAE Canada was prepared under the leadership of Tim Nevins, A.A.E. Flowing from the plan, promotional mailings were directed to airports across the country, educational institutions with aviation programs and current members enumerating the benefits of IAAE Canada membership. Tom Coupland personally promoted IAAE Canada membership through his participation in the annual conferences of several provincial aviation associations. Wil MacMillan, A.A.E. and Jeff Barrow, A.A.E. continued to work with student representatives at Georgian College and the University of Western Ontario respectively to build student membership and solidify the IAAE Canada student chapters at each school. Collectively, these initiatives yielded a total of 53 new members for IAAE Canada at the end of 2010. While the member attrition rate actually equated to 10%, the number of net, new members amounted to 29, exceeding the target. An exciting new service introduced for members in 2010 was the IAAE Canada Airport Magazine. Published in partnership with the Matrix Publishing Group of Winnipeg, the first two issues of the Airport Magazine were distributed in the spring and fall to favourable comments from readers. The magazine, containing feature articles on a wide range of aviation-related topics, is intended to complement the weekly e-Report and the web site and provide members with an added source of current industry information. IAAE Canada also ventured into the social media in 2010 as another avenue for connecting with new and existing members. Scott MacNeil, Maxx Kochar and Michelle Cretzman were all instrumental in establishing a presence for IAAE Canada on Linked-in and Facebook. Initiatives were also taken to leverage the potential of the web site as a place for members to discuss issues and exchange information. Tim Nevins and Iouri Moutine, A.A.E. worked to develop the Members’ forum feature on the web site by seeding topics to engage members in group discussions. Looking ahead to 2011, the Membership & Communications Committee intends to launch new initiatives to promote IAAE Canada membership and to enhance the membership experience through the Airport Magazine, the e-Report, the social media and new preferred member services. The successes of 2010 and the plans for the coming year are due to the continuing creativity and energies of the following members who have generously offered their time and talents in the service of IAAE Canada: Jeff Barrow, A.A.E. – Toronto Tim Nevins, A.A.E. – Toronto Paul Cudmore – Campbellford

Wil MacMillan, A.A.E. – Toronto Scott MacNeil – Toronto Tom Coupland – Hamilton

Iouri Moutine, A.A.E. – Toronto Maxx Kochar – Toronto Michelle Cretzman – Hamilton

My personal appreciation is extended to each of these individuals for making 2010 a successful and productive year. Respectfully submitted, Bill Newman, A.A.E. Chair, Membership & Communications Committee. IAAE CANADA 2010 ANNUAL REPORT


our committee reports Corporate Representative IAAE Canada provides a valuable forum for the sharing of information between corporate members and the airport industry across Canada. Through information provided by the IAAE Canada weekly newsletter, special updates and an annual conference, corporate members have the ability to recognize and assist the airport’s’ requirements for equipment, services and management support. Corporate members are actively involved in providing training to airport staff through IAAE Canada sponsored courses. The corporate members of IAAE Canada support the organization’s focus on training and development. The 2010 Conference was the most successful Operations & Facility Manager’s Conference yet (now known as "FOAM").It provided an important opportunity for corporate members to mingle with airport operators under one venue. Sponsorship opportunities continue to be an economical and effective method of sharing corporate member services and products. In addition, IAAE Canada recognizes the need to include industry as an active participant in the Conference as presenters, and foster the interaction between corporate members and airports during all Conference activities. In 2010, the corporate membership increased by 6% to 39 members. The Board recognizes the importance of corporate membership and the need to increase participation across all segments of industry. In this regard, several initiatives are being undertaken. 1. Improvements to the IAAE Canada website with up to date information on upcoming conferences, increased visibility and free advertising for members, a forum section to share ideas and information, and improved links to the corporate member websites. 2. Increased recruitment of corporate members through airport member contacts, industry conferences and assistance from the corporate representative 3. Preparation of a corporate membership package outlining the many benefits of being a member. 4. Ongoing follow-up based on a 2009 airport survey to help better understand the needs and challenges of our existing and potential customer base 5. Continued planning & preparation for the IAAE Canada Magazine, which should increase IAAE Canada visibility and value to our stakeholders and customers (Now in 2nd full year of production) In support of the IAAE Canada organization, the corporate representative participated in a number of activities during 2010 including; monthly conference calls, Membership and Communication meetings, and the Operations & Facility Manager’s Conference in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Respectfully submitted, Paul Cudmore IAAE Canada Corporate Representative



our committee reports Training Committee Chair Cameron Nicolson A.A.E. Members Kevin Lacey, A.A.E. Ed Schmidtke, A.A.E. Tom Coupland

Cameron Nicolson, A.A.E. Paul Ritchi, A.A.E.

The 2010 training program had a good economic rebound from 2009. It would seem that the uncertainty to spend on training turned around in 2010. At the beginning of the year the Training Committee was chaired by Bryan Gordon A.A.E. Bryan retired from the Greater Toronto Airports Authority in 2010, and requested to also reduce his responsibilities with IAAE Canada. Bryan remains a member of the Training Committee, and I was chosen as the new Committee Chair to replace Bryan. The WAMSCR and TP312 courses continue to be our most popular. We continued to be a national training provider with courses in British Columbia, the Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritimes in 2010. We are hoping to return to the Territories in 2011. There were two new courses added to the IAAE Canada curriculum in 2010. We held the first Airport Systems Planning course in Toronto in June and the first Airport 101 course in Quebec City in August. These two new courses had the highest course attendance of all the courses offered in 2010. We can see that there is still an appetite for new and original courses and we appreciate our members input on new course topics. We have also committed to offering an on-line series of courses to meet the training requirements of airport staff that are unable to attend our classroom courses. These courses will initially be introductory level courses that will offer a foundation for our more advanced classroom courses. We are looking forward to introducing our on-line courses to our members in 2011. IAAE Canada will continue to provide our course schedule to you in the weekly e-Report. If you would like to host a course please contact our Executive Coordinator. If you cannot host a course, consider the added value of networking by sending your staff away to take a course with other airport professionals. I have enjoyed my time as the new Chair of the Training Committee and the commitment that the members of the Committee have given. We look forward to continuing to offer old favorites like WAMSCR, adding new courses like Airport Systems Planning, and the future of our on-line series of courses in 2011. Respectfully submitted, Cameron Nicolson, A.A.E. Chair, Training Committee

our committee reports Accreditation Committee/Board of Examiners Report The year 2010 had a reduction in the number of members achieving their accreditation however one member achieved the coveted and industry recognized Mark of an Airport Professional. Please join me in congratulating Karen King on becoming an A.A.E. in 2010. An additional eleven members took the next step in realizing accreditation by achieving their Certified Member status. Their names can be found in the New C.M.s section of this report. The Accreditation Committee’s ongoing responsibility is to ensure that the IAAE Canada Accreditation Program maintains the high professional standards that have been developed to date. Of equal importance the committee is mandated to continuously seek enhancements to the program in the ever evolving world of aviation. The airport industry has high expectations and requires knowledgeable professionals to manage airports. The Accreditation Committee will ensure that newly accredited members have the required knowledge to meet these high expectations. The Accreditation Committee and the Board of Examiners provide a mentorship program to guide all candidates. This is achieved by approving management paper topics and outlines; the final review of management papers; conducting oral exam interviews and providing personal ongoing guidance to each candidate throughout the three year accreditation process. The Accreditation Committee understands the difficulty in meeting demanding work loads while also striving to achieve your accreditation however the Committee & Board of Examiners will do their best to ensure each member is set up for success to achieve this valuable milestone within the time frame of the program.

We also invite readers to provide us with their feedback on the magazine and any suggestions for future articles.





4th annual operations & facility managers conference The true test of a conference is the amount of repeat delegates plus new growth. As for growth, we are happy to say we had the biggest group of delegates to date, nearly half of whom had attended before, and the largest trade show yet. At Niagara Falls we had a few days of great talks and interaction, some great social activities and good weather. No wonder many chose to stay on and have a vacation of their own. We would like to extend a big thank-you to our Gold Sponsor-Vanderlande Industries Canada Inc; our Silver Sponsors: EBA Engineering Consultants Ltd, Tradewind Scientific Ltd and Black & McDonald; and Bronze Sponsors: Hatch Mott MacDonald, Accipiter Radar Technologies Inc, Team Eagle, Niagara District Airport, and Basic Solutions (now LNT Solutions) for their continued support and participation. We also wish to thank our other sponsors: Pryde Schropp McComb Inc, Gibbings Consulting Ltd, MMM Group Limited, Airlines Pavement Markings Inc., Commissionaires, Hi-Lite Markings and United Rotary Brush. Some of these sponsors have been IAAE Canada members for many years and a sponsor at every one of our four years of this Conference. Without sponsors we could not put on such a Conference. Very soon we will do it all again, this time in Charlottetown. Please don’t be confused when you see we have changed the name slightly (Facility Operations & Airport Managers Conference) to better reflect the delegates that are attending. If this is your first reading please check out our website which always has the latest information.

See you in Charlottetown

Cryotech Deicing Technology is a division of General Atomics International Services Corporation, a San Diego-based company that specialized in energy-related research and product development. In 1992 General Atomics purchased the deicing business of Chevron Chemicals Company. Included in the acquisition was the production facility at Fort Madison, Iowa, plus all patents, processes, and rights developed by Chevron. The business was renamed Cryotech Deicing Technology, the root word “cryo” meaning cold. A world leader in acetate technology, Cryotech manufactures and markets environmentally compatible acetate-based highway commercial, and airport runway deicers. Acetates are considered safe for the environment because they readily biodegrade and exhibit low toxicity to vegetation and aquatic life. Acetates have low corrosion rates, and are ideal for application on reinforced concrete structures such as bridges and parking garages. Acetates also have a residual effect, working longer than common deicers. In 1998 Cryotech’s Ft. Madison, Iowa plant received ISO 9002 Certification for its quality process systems. ISO is an internationally recognized quality model. It provides assurance to customers that the products they receive are produced and shipped under rigorous international quality standards. Cryotech is the first manufacturer in North America in its industry to receive this recognition, reaffirming its position as an industry leader in acetate-based deicers. 1999 Cryotech formed an agreement with Kilfrost Ltd. in Europe to manufacture and distribute Kilfrost Type I and Type IV Aircraft deicers throughout North America. The fluids are propylene glycol-based, offering superior environmental and holdover performance.

Safegate Airport Systems, Inc. is a subsidiary of the Safegate Group. Founded in 1973 in Malmö, Sweden, the Safegate Group has 16 offices around the globe and is in operation at more than 1000 airports worldwide offering complete ramp management, airfield lighting and A-SMGCS solutions for the most efficient and safe guidance of aircraft from touchdown to gate. Docking Guidance Systems Safegate’s ramp management solutions are built around the Safedock™ Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (A-VDGS) and Gate Operating System (GOS) that links the gates and integrates with airport and airline information systems. The resulting real-time gate intelligence and shared data helps create a safer, more efficient and environmentally-friendly ramp operation that is predictable, repeatable and scalable for the future. Safegate is the leading provider of fully-automated, laser-based A-VDGS that can accurately guide pilots to the correct stop position in all weather conditions. Aircraft can dock even when the ramp is closed and ramp personnel cannot be present. Safedock provides guidance to pilots in both seats and can accommodate multiple centerlines with one system. More than 4,300 Safedock A-VDGS systems are operational at airports around the world, including Toronto Pearson International Airport and Vancouver International Airport. Safegate’s Gate Operating System links all gates via a local or wide area network and integrates with airport and airline information systems, providing centralized control of all gates and real-time gate intelligence to maximize turns. The GOS provides accurate in and out times, doubles as a ramp information display system (RIDS) and can interface with ground support equipment and other existing airport systems such as BMS/FIDS/AFLCS/SMR. Airfield Lighting ASP-SafeControl is an addressable airfield lighting system that provides individual light control, system monitoring capabilities and real-time information to the tower. ASP-SafeControl reduces the time and cost associated with light installation and maintenance, is compatible with other airfield lighting systems, works with existing infrastructure and does not require additional control cable for installation. Safegate airfield lighting solutions are in use today at airports in: Halifax NS, St John’s NFL, Trenton ON, Victoria BC, Waterloo-Kitchener ON and Winnipeg MB. Safegate’s SafeLED airfield lighting fixtures are the only LED airfield lights that offer an integrated fail-open signal, similar to halogen fixtures, for monitoring lamp failure. The SafeLED IQ intelligent lamp fitting provides significant power savings and cost efficiencies by allowing monitoring and control of the LED lighting system. Controlling light intensity at the light rather than the CCR can save up to 85% in cabling costs and power consumption. For more information, please contact: Taha S.
