About us

International Federation of Air Traffic Safety Electronics Associations (IFATSEA) unites the professional associations of Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel (ATSEPs) from around the world.

Our Vision

IFATSEA is the authoritative voice on the competence of air traffic safety electronics personnel. Using our strong global network, we actively contribute to the improvement of air traffic safety performance.

Working Together with ICAO, IFATSA was strongly involved to develop the ICAO PANS-TRG Doc 9868
