RTCA President To Retire

Margaret Jenny Stepping Down At The End Of Her 5-Year Contract

RTCA has just announced that Margaret T. Jenny, President, has informed the Board of Directors of her intention to retire from RTCA this August, at the end of her second 5-year contract.  RTCA’s Board will initiate a search process to identify a successor for her.

RTCA is a private, not-for-profit association founded in 1935 as the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics, now referred to simply as “RTCA”. The organization is a Public-Private Partnership venue for developing consensus among diverse, competing interests on critical aviation modernization issues in an increasingly global enterprise

“It has been an honor and a privilege to lead this organization for the past 10 years, and I am proud of what our team, and the hundreds of participants on our committees have accomplished. Together we have shown what can be accomplished when people with different agendas, and even competing interests, set their minds to finding common ground and hammering out consensus-driven solutions to seemingly intractable problems,” said Jenny (pictured).

“As my second 5-year term comes to a close,” she continued, “it is the right time for me personally and for RTCA, to transition to the next generation of leadership.  I leave with the knowledge that RTCA is well-positioned to face new challenges and will continue to succeed.”

"Margaret has worked tirelessly this past decade to fully engage the entire aviation community while advancing recommendations related to some of aviation’s greatest challenges," said RTCA Chairman Craig Fuller.  "She has earned the gratitude and respect of all who work to improve and modernize our nation’s air transportation system and the global air transportation system as well.”

"During her 10-year term, Margaret has significantly enhanced RTCA’s reputation as a forum for industry collaboration, consensus and accountability,” said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen, an RTCA board member, in a news release. “In 2009, she led a pioneering effort to establish the organization’s legendary Task Force 5, which laid the groundwork for the NextGen Advisory Committee. That committee now spearheads the work of government and industry stakeholders, working from a data-driven roadmap, to help establish NextGen priorities, timelines and metrics.

Bolen noted that Ms. Jenny’s leadership at RTCA has been recognized and applauded by stakeholders representing major airlines, airports, manufacturers, community groups, policymakers and providers of emerging technologies.

“Simply put, Margaret’s work at RTCA has not only set the foundation for the development and implementation of ‘NextGen,’ but helped turn what was once a massive, complex and largely unworkable idea into consensus plan that is clear, measurable and yielding real benefits to both the aviation community and the general public,” Bolen said. “Her work has helped ensure that America will remain the world’s aviation leader, five, 10 and 25 years from today. She departs the association with a remarkable level of accomplishment, applause and due credit for a job well done.”
