Every two weeks, IAPs, AMPAP Associates and AMPAP participants receive the IAP CoP update. It includes news about the community as well as texts and interviews from IAPs, board members, and AMPAP Instructors.

The ACI NA Conference and Exhibition will happen in Ft. Worth from September 17 to 20. We expect many IAPs to be present, will you be there? Paul Behnke, Knowledge and Industry Intelligence and AMPAP Instructor will be at the event to promote the programme. Make sure to come and say hi!
Dear IAPs and Associates,
I will be present at the ACI NA conference in Dallas in 2 weeks in order to promote AMPAP and meet with the IAPs. As we move into the second decade of the programme, this might be the biggest gathering of IAPs and Associates at a conference! We will not have formal activities planned but we would like to invite you to visit the AMPAP display both at the ACI NA booth and the SITA booth where I will promote the programme during exhibition hours.
Hope to see you in Texas!
If you plan to attend the conference, please contact Paul Behnke directly at [email protected] so he can then let you know where you can meet with him and the other IAPs during the conference.

Queen Matilah makes first ever appearance in Atlanta ATS
Participants/instructors astounded by her royal presence (in her crown!)
‘bears a striking resemblance to Susan Warner-Dooley’ says instructor
AMPAP has been globetrotting again over the past month with ATS courses in Atlanta and Abu Dhabi. I had the pleasure of being involved in both sessions with co-instructors Tonci Peovic and Louis Haeck in Atlanta and Michael Rodyniuk and Wasim Zaidi in Abu Dhabi. Both courses were marked by superb hospitality from ATL and ADAC and a high level of energy in the classroom.
For the first time in the 10 years since AMPAP’s launch, “Queen Matilah” showed up to attend the class in Atlanta and listen to the proposals for the future international airport bearing her name in Putnam. The class was stunned when she entered the room wearing her ‘travel crown’, a small golden tiara. She posed a number of challenging questions to the teams. While we invited her to Abu Dhabi, hoping that she had begun a trend of personal involvement, she was unable to attend due to a long-standing commitment to visit ICAO HQ and ACI World in Montreal.
Queen Matilah (3rd from right) mingles with some of her loyal subjects.
