RTCA is a private, not-for-profit association founded in 1935 as the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics, now referred to simply as “RTCA”. We are the premier Public-Private Partnership venue for developing consensus among diverse, competing interests on critical aviation modernization issues in an increasingly global enterprise.

Inspire the creation and implementation of integrated performance standards that meet the changing global aviation environment and ensure the safety, security, and overall health of the aviation ecosystem.

The RTCA Board of Directors is responsible for management and fiduciary oversight. This includes reviewing and approving the annual operating budget. The Board of Directors also works in conjunction with the RTCA Advisory Board to establish RTCA policies and programs.
