Nominations will be assessed by a panel of experienced judges from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFATCA), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Eurocontrol, CANSO, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and IHS Jane's.
