O’Donnell to head Metron Aviation

Metron Aviation has named Dan O’Donnell as its next president.

Dan was previously vice president of business development for ACSS (an L-3 Communications & Thales company). He also spent nearly 15 years at United Airlines and during his tenure held a number of leadership positions which included director of flight operations technology.

At United, he provided leadership with the implementation of foreword fit and retrofit CNS/ATM technologies to improve fleet standardisation, operations and safety. In addition, Dan has expertise in working with aircraft manufacturers, regional airlines, corporate, military and general aviation.

“Dan is uniquely positioned to guide the organization towards the needs of tomorrow’s skies. As a jet type rated pilot, Dan has hands on experience in managing ATC constraints and is a recognized CNS/ATM expert. He brings a very strong avionics and flight operations background to our Dulles office. Dan’s airline experience is a natural synergy both to Metron’s air traffic flow management (ATFM) solutions as well as to the larger Airbus ProSky Group,” said Paul-Franck Bijou, CEO of the Airbus ProSky Group, of which Metron Aviation belongs.

“In addition, we are pleased to add to Metron’s extensive FAA knowledge, expertise and background with the addition of Frank Black as our senior director of industry relations. Frank’s background as deputy director of airspace services, acting air traffic manager at NY ARTCC, and the executive officer at Houston ARTCC will complement our robust FAA business.”

Metron Aviation is a global market leader in ATFM, airspace analysis, and environment and energy solutions. Its products and services increase airspace and airport efficiency, improve predictability and enhance safety on six continents. With a focus on reducing delays, decreasing fuel burn and reducing CO2 emissions, Metron Aviation is making our skies more sustainable today in order to improve tomorrow’s operations.
