RMKS/1. Announcement of the Navy and Marine Corps Air Traffic Control (ATC) 
Leadership Continuum to be held in Pensacola, FL on 24-26 September 2013. 
This event is designed for Navy and Marine Corps ATC leadership and managers.  

2. This forum provides senior ATC managers a venue to train, educate, and 
develop ATC community leaders on Federal Aviation Regulations, NATOPS sea and 
ashore, facility management, manpower, technical advances, operational 
enhancements, unmanned flight operations and policy changes that have taken 
place within the ATC profession. Among other topics to be discussed are 
updates to Naval Aviation, changes within the National Airspace System, new 
equipment capabilities, Navy enlisted classification codes, type commanders 
updates, tower and radar simulation, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 
controller accreditation, community wholeness, and manpower metrics. Formal 
course reviews for ATC schools will be conducted.

3. This is mission essential and critical to the safety, training and 
operational readiness for all Navy and Marine Corps facilities ashore, afloat 
and expeditionary to participate in this event in order to effectively 
address FAA, International Civil Aviation Organization, and Naval ATC policy 
and procedures.

4. FAA, Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of the Navy (DON) managers 
who desire to make a presentation should contact CDR Don Sigley at

of transportation requirements are encouraged. Use of Navy Operational 
Support Airlift and Navy Unique Fleet Essential Aircraft is therefore 
authorized subject to the following guidelines:

priorities.
