Menzies employee recognised by the Federal Aviation Administration Safety Team in PHL

Justin Halbsgut, ASIG Tower Supervisor in Philadelphia (PHL), was recently awarded a Certificate of Appreciation by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for his quick thinking and dedication to safety.

Justin contacted the Flight Standards District Offices (FSDO) with concerns that an American Airlines aircraft was transmitting the wrong transponder and telemetry codes. The error was quickly rectified thanks to Justin’s speedy reaction.

Christine Loder, General Manager Menzies Aviation Philadelphia, said: “Well done to Justin for his focus and dedication, ensuring the transponder codes were quickly corrected before any major issues occurred.”
