The Air Transport Technical Group (ATTG) serves the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Los Angeles Metropolitan Branch (MLAB), its members, and supporters by conducting periodic meetings for the benefit of engineers and architects having an interest in the aviation industry.  The meetings focus on various aspects of air transport, including airport improvements, airline affairs, air traffic control, and the aircraft manufacturing industry.  ATTG's goal in conducting periodic meetings is to provide informative presentations to its members and guests, and to provide them with an opportunity to exchange information and ideas for the benefit of all participants.


ATTG typically hosts 4 to 6 meetings each year featuring local aviation agencies (e.g., Los Angeles World Airports, Long Beach Airport, Burbank Airport, Ontario International Airport Authority, San Diego International Airport) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).  Arrangements are made for presentations on terminal and airfield airport improvements for passenger and cargo transport, airline tenant improvements, FAA developments in air and ground traffic control, airport security, and developments in aircraft manufacturing.
