Houston to chair Airservices Australia

written by australianaviation.com.au | December 13, 2011
Retired ACM Angus Houston will take over as chairman of Airservices Australia in June next year.

Retired defence force chief Angus Houston has been appointed as the next chairman of Airservices Australia and will replace former Qantas executive David Forsyth when he retires on June 3.

Houston’s appointment comes as Airservices Australia and the RAAF work toward a common system of civil and military air traffic management.  The government says Houston’s background will help strengthen those efforts.

Houston is also expected to oversee delivery of a five year, $1 billion capital expenditure program to replace and upgrade vital air traffic infrastructure and improve aerodrome rescue and firefighting services.

Houston retired in July this year after more than 40 years in RAAF. He was promoted to Chief of the Air Force in 2001 and spent the last six years as Chief of the Defence Force.
