The National Air Transportation Association has promoted Steve Berry to vice president of education and safety.

"Steve has contributed greatly to NATA's success over the past several years, building on his wealth of industry knowledge to help advance NATA's education and training programmes as well as the overall safety of the industry," says COO Keith DeBerry.

Steve Berry first served as NATA's training and content manager before being promoted to manager of fuel quality and safety, and most recently to managing director of safety and training. In his new role as vice president, Berry leads the strategic vision for, and oversight of, NATA's education and safety initiatives, including the Safety 1st Training Center and Safety 1st onSITE.

Berry also represents the interests of aviation businesses at industry meetings and hearings, serving on the Energy Institute's Aviation Committee, the ATA 103 Working Group, National Fire Protection Association's 407 and 418 Technical Committees, the Aviation Insurance Association Safety Committee, NATA's Safety Committee and the association's GA Fuel Handling Subcommittee.

In addition, Berry is instrumental in working with industry partners to develop and promote safe fuelling practices under www.preventmisfueling.com, Eliminate Aviation Gasoline Lead Emissions (EAGLE) and other initiatives.

"I am proud to serve with the NATA executive team in furthering the association's collaboration with talented aviation business leaders and allied groups to foster the leadership of our member organisations in evolving general aviation safety and education," says Berry. "I look forward to continuing to improve our current Safety 1st training programme offerings, while working with our strategic partners to advance the use of data and technology in making the GA ramp a safer, smarter space."

"Steve leads by example, takes every opportunity to learn and finds ways to share that knowledge for the greater good," adds president and CEO Curt Castagna. "His extensive industry experience and expertise are key to promoting and elevating organisational education and safety. We are thrilled to benefit from Steve's guidance in his new role as vice president."
