Aviation and air traffic management (ATM) professionals from around the globe will gather on 12-14 March 2019, in Madrid, Spain, for World ATM Congress 2019 – the world’s largest international ATM exhibition and conference. Members of the global aviation community are invited to register today.

World ATM Congress 2019 combines a large-scale exhibition, world-class conference and educational presentations, and exclusive networking opportunities, plus the chance to learn the latest trends and developments in the ATM industry – all under one roof.

Expected to draw more than 8,500 attendees from 130+ countries and territories, World ATM Congress 2019 will welcome over 80 air navigation service providers (ANSPs), alongside aviation industry partners and stakeholders and more than 230 exhibitors highlighting cutting-edge technology, including remote tower solutions, space-based ADS-B, artificial intelligence and autonomy, cybersecurity, and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) traffic management (UTM). As a testament to the popularity of the show, the 2019 exhibition footprint is larger than ever, already exceeding last year’s floorplan by nearly 800 square metres.

The Conference Programme theme is “Tackling the Big Issues in ATM – Capacity, UTM Integration, People.” It will focus on industry’s most pressing challenges, such as integrating and managing drones, attracting and retaining the next generation of ATM professionals, increasing diversity in the workforce, and the best way to expand ATM capacity. Information on keynote speeches, presentations and panel sessions by renowned aviation industry leaders will be announced soon.

World ATM Congress 2019 features six education theatres in its world-class Exhibition Hall and IFEMA’s conference centre. The theatres will provide nearly 150 hours of programming, including product launches and demonstrations, panel discussions, research findings, and more.

Reading Time: 1 minute


Winnipeg Richardson International Airport introduced ‘Otto’, the first autonomous airport snowplow in North America. The plow is the result of a partnership with Manitoba companies Northstar Robotics Inc. and Airport Technologies Inc. (ATI).

‘Otto’ is a specially designed ATI Snow Mauler configured to operate autonomously using Northstar Robotics technology. The plow performs snow clearing tasks by following predetermined routes and controlling the plow blade at specific locations.

Today marks a significant milestone for the project, as the vehicle can now operate autonomously in less complex areas of the airport. Research and development continue, with the next step being the operation of the plow in additional areas of the airport.

Otto is equipped with 3D LIDAR and RADAR that can sense its surroundings and detect obstacles.  The plow is also equipped with a fault tolerant wireless emergency stop system, a further safety enhancement.

“Launching North America’s first autonomous snowplow is a great achievement for Winnipeg Richardson International Airport,” said Barry Rempel, President and CEO of Winnipeg Airports Authority. “Our success is a direct result of bringing together partners who are committed to lead transportation innovation and growth.”

“Autonomous technology is changing how we work,” added Shawn Schaerer, President and Founder of Northstar Robotics. “It is exciting to partner with companies that are ready to adapt and pioneer this cutting-edge technology.”

“ATI is proud to be part of the team breaking new ground in snow clearing technology,” said ATI’s President, Brendon Smith. “We are excited to continue to find new ways to incorporate autonomous technology into our equipment.”

Prestige Imports and ICON Aircraft Partner to Showcase the ICON A5 in South Florida

ICON Aircraft and Prestige Imports partnership will focus on ICON's vision to make personal adventure flying more accessible.
Reading Time: 2 minutes


ICON Aircraft, maker of the revolutionary ICON A5 Light Sport Aircraft, today announced a partnership with Brett David and Prestige Imports, a leading luxury car dealership in North Miami Beach, FL. The ICON A5 will be available in the Prestige Imports 2.0 showroom as part of the Prestige Aviation division.

Together, ICON Aircraft and Prestige Imports will introduce adventure flying and personal aviation to customers who until now had likely never considered becoming pilots. The plane will be displayed in the dealership showroom alongside high-end exotic vehicles such as Paganis and Lamborghinis, with dedicated specialists ready to engage with customers.

“Our customers crave ways to enjoy life and unlock what was believed to be unattainable adventures,” said Brett David, CEO of Prestige Imports. “Since 1977, we have come to deeply understand the South Florida luxury lifestyle and the ICON A5 fits perfectly. The partnership with ICON reinforces Prestige Imports’ dedication to luxury transportation on land, air and sea.”

“This partnership with Prestige Imports reinforces our mission to redefine what it means to be a pilot and expand the bounds of personal aviation,” said Mike Farley, VP of Sales and Marketing for ICON Aircraft. “Much like the exotic cars in the showroom, the ICON A5 is unreal. Flying with the windows out, wind in your hair, is a visceral experience. The ICON A5 enables you to explore the planet in ways you’ve only dreamed about.”

To inspire a new generation of flyers, ICON designed the A5 to reconnect people with the pure joy of flying. Much like the exotic cars on the Prestige Showroom floor, the A5 is painstakingly crafted for performance, from its industry-leading safety features such as a full plane parachute to a cockpit that minimizes complexity.  And the A5 requires only a sport pilot license to fly, which takes about half as long as a private pilot license to earn.

Prestige Imports is located at 14800 Biscayne Blvd, in the heart of North Miami Beach. Through the end of April, ICON is offering a special Mentor Pilot Program that includes up to $15,000 of credit toward an ICON Flight Instructor in the first year of ownership with the purchase of an A5. Terms and conditions apply. For more information, email
