ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  An air traffic controller at the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport is honored as Outstanding Controller of the year for 2009. 

Cathy Haas has worked in the tower managed by C-I-Squared since 2001. She was picked from more than 200 air traffic controllers who work in 91 towers throughout Georgia and the region.

Thursday, she was presented with plaques from Robinson Aviation and the FAA honoring her for her service. Her managers say Haas always remains calm under pressure.

"We've seen enough, experience-wise, to handle those difficult situations, so we try to do that. But it definitely helps to keep a cool head. At times it does get a little hectic," said Haas.

Haas says earning the award is an incentive to do the best job she can. The honor also included a $500 bonus.
