Steven R. Lang has more than 30 years of experience in Air Traffic Control and Air Traffic Management beginning with the United States Air Force in 1976 and moving to the FAA in 1984.
Before coming to Volpe, Mr. Lang managed the Federal Aviation Administration's Wake Turbulence Research Program. The program is focused on delivering safe changes to air traffic operations that improve the capacity and efficiency of the National Airspace System. Considerable wake turbulence work is required in support of the FAA's NextGen solutions. Mr. Lang also helped change the National Standards to allow the use of Closely Spaced Parallel Runway Operations in Instrument Meteorological Conditions at six airports. He received an award from the Secretary of the Transportation and from the FAA Administrator for this work. Before coming to FAA Headquarters in Washington, Mr. Lang spent time at St. Louis Tower and Approach Control where he held many positions including air traffic controller, Front Line Manager, Traffic Management Officer, and Operations Manager.
Mr. Lang holds a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Bellevue University.
