Executive Board, PASS

Ron Schubert



Since 1977, the Professional Aviation Safety Specialists (PASS) has represented more than 11,000 employees of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Department of Defense (DoD) who install, maintain, support, and certify air traffic control and national defense equipment, inspect and oversee the commercial and general aviation industries, develope flight procedures, and perform quality analyses of complex aviation systems used in air traffic and national defense in the United States and abroad.

Nearly 700 million air travelers fly throughout the U.S. each year. As the demand for air travel increases, so does the need to maintain the highest level of safety, integrity, and reliability of the National Airspace System (NAS). From inspectors who ensure industry compliance with FAA standards to systems specialists who protect the safety and efficiency of critical aviation systems, PASS members are focused on safety, every step of the way.
