According to the organization, “the Council is committed to continued improvement of the many aviation facilities in Florida, as well as professional development of its members. Educational programs, conferences, webinars, and seminars are held each year to provide the membership with the tools necessary to perform their job responsibilities, as well as prepare them for more challenging positions in the future.”
