“21st Century Air Traffic Controller”  
San Diego, California, at the Wyndham San Diego Bayside 

April 30 – May 3, 2018  

The Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) will host the 2018 Navy and Marine Corps ATC Symposium in San Diego, California, at the (Wyndham San Diego Bayside). The Symposium will take place from April 30 – May 3, 2018, after a six-year absence from the West Coast. It will be held near a fleet concentration area to reduce overall cost.

 

The Symposium is an ideal forum to showcase air traffic control to the US Navy and Marine Corps. The Symposium will reinforce the Department of the Navy’s professional excellence in the ATC community. It allows senior military and civilian professionals to enlighten, inspire, and educate junior Navy and Marine Corps air traffic controllers on ATC’s latest technological advances, operational enhancements, and policy changes. The symposium provides the perfect opportunity to get beyond the classroom and traditional training methods.

 

The theme for the 2018 ATC Symposium is “21st Century Air Traffic Controller”. The Symposium agenda with speakers and a link to register will be posted soon.  There are many opportunities for you to participate, including showcasing air traffic control tools through an exhibit, identifying educational opportunities for young Sailors and Marines, sponsoring Symposium coffee breaks, hosting an evening social, or participating in technological demonstrations.
