I would like to welcome Dustin Pasch to the role as the Facility Engineer.

I have been the Facility Engineer for the Moncton/Gander FIR since about 2013, (8 years). Dustin has shown interest and the functioning capability of continuing in this role as I pass it down to him. Dustin's responsibilities will include reporting to the FIR Chief on a regular basis, regular maintenance of the sector file, assisting the Moncton/Gander FIR membership with issues surrounding Euroscope and the sector files. He will also be responsible for implementing evolving technologies as developed by Vatsim/Vatcan. Dustin will be responsible for assisting the CZQM staff in the planning and implementation of large events such as Cross the Pond. Dustin will commence the regular updates after the next Airac release and I will continue to work with him and train him to current standards. I welcome Dustin to the FE Staff position in the Moncton/Gander FIR!
