Air Controlman 1 & C: Rate Training Manual.
Naval Training Command, Pensacola, FL.
The manual is designed for use in preparing for advancement within the Navy Air Controlman rating, which designates a professional air traffic controller, unlike the more specialized center or tower controllers. However, minimum qualifications for the rating include completion of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) written examination for air traffic controllers and an FAA medical certificate. Contents of the manual cover flight planning, facility operation, terminal instrument procedures, air traffic control, emergency procedures, carrier air traffic control procedures, and administration. All sections are illustrated with charts and diagrams. Although the emphasis is on Navy procedure and terminology, in many areas there is applicability to civilian procedures. Appendixes include definitions and abbreviations and a selected bibliography of air traffic control instructions. (MDW)
