The second winning flight assist of the 2019 #ArchieLeague Medal of Safety Awards was from Boston Center (ZBW) and involved three NATCA members: Jeffrey Aulbach, Neil Cóspito, and Michael Jacobson.
On a snowy Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 20, 2018, Boston Center (ZBW) Cóspito was working low altitude airspace over northern Vermont and New Hampshire.
Cóspito was working an F-16 (VENOM01) from the 158th Fighter Wing of the Vermont Air National Guard, based in Burlington, Vt. The jet had been holding outside of Burlington (BTV) due to poor weather conditions. The weather spanned from the Canadian border down through the Catskill Mountains in southeastern New York and over to the Atlantic coast. It didn’t appear to be improving.
Cóspito searched the region for airports with suitable weather conditions. The pilot of VENOM01 informed Cóspito that he would be diverting to Syracuse, N.Y. (SYR). Cóspito cleared the aircraft direct SYR and issued a climb clearance. He asked the pilot on his estimated time en route and his fuel remaining. The pilot replied, “15 minutes en route and 15 minutes of fuel.”
