For those unfamiliar with ACE:
ACE events offer DOI bureaus and USFS employees, who function in aviation specific positions or possess aviation management duties and responsibilities, with required aviation safety education and training to ensure we use aviation safely and effectively. Many of the offerings include (but are not limited to) mishap prevention policies, procedures, safe operating practices, resource management, data management, contracting, and billing. Additional ACE events will be scheduled in varied geographic regions.

The ACE format provides employees with the flexibility to attend only those classes that are relevant/required for their respective aviation position(s) or responsibilities. Most important, it provides field units with qualified, trained employees that are ready to support agency operations.

Registration is now open for the Alaska ACE scheduled March 9-13, 2020 in Anchorage, AK.

The Southwest ACE is scheduled for April 13-17, 2020 in Phoenix, AZ. Registration will be available October 18, 2019.
