How to establish a National Codification Bureau (NCB)
Captain Zas, the Spanish Bureau Director, in his 1996 retirement letter, provides some excellent comments and guidance points on this subject. I would strongly recommend you acquire a copy of that letter, if you can. The letter was to all AC/135 members and was dated 25 May 1996.
I enjoyed my fourteen years in the NCB, especially my time as the Bureau Director. I have met a great number of dedicated NCS professionals in that time and still maintain a contact with a number of them. I believe the NCS family is in good heart to face the challenges of the new century. May all your expectations for the future be realized. I leave you with this thought from Sam Leverson:
“Learn from the mistakes of others, you can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.”
