The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

When Capt. Sullenberger landed US Airways Flight 1549 on New York's Hudson River in 2009, many components (flight crew, air traffic control, technology and first responders) came together seamlessly to save all 155 people onboard. As the dawn of a new era in aviation breaks, this webinar will explore how NASA is "developing innovative data solutions to assure safe, rapid and repeatable access to a transformed National Airspace System." Relevant instructional resources will also be included.
