Mr. Astran joins Keith Holt, Airport Director, Virginia Tech/Montgomery Executive Airport, and Bridget Cox, Area Director, Signature Flight Support Corporation, to present a session titled “Attracting, Training & Retaining Talent” on August 18. The news headlines tell us that retirements abound, the wage environment has tightened, safety and training remain crucial and that employers are feeling the heat.  Is this what it really looks like in our industry?  These industry leaders will share what they are seeing and tools that they have used to be successful in this competitive labor environment.
