Metropolitan Washington Airlines Committee (MWAC)

The Metropolitan Washington Airlines Committee (MWAC) has served as the ombudsman for the air carriers that have service to Dulles or Reagan National airports since 1987 and is critical to the partnerships that exist between the many airlines and the Airports Authority. 

MWAC joined the Committee for Dulles 32 years ago to help support the airport through community involvement. They recognize that the airport serves as an international gateway for both leisure and business travel to and from the region.   

Dick DeiTos is actively involved with the CFD. He serves on its Board and contributes to the fascinating programs and tours coordinated by the Airport Activities Committee. He was also 2020 recipient of the Hal Launders award, which is given to members who make the most significant contribution to achieving the Committee’s goals.  

Dick has been flying his entire life, first traveling from Miami to Chicago when he was just six weeks old and has worked in the aviation industry for 45 years. Next up on his list – a trip to Spain in May and hopefully a safari next year.

Dave’s first flight was from Dulles to San Antonio, Texas in 1967. Dave served in the US Air Force and then returned to his hometown of Danvers, Massachusetts and worked for two years at an industrial vacuum tube manufacturer, Varian.
