This webinar will build off of the first webinar and will answer questions posed, as well as requests for additional information on some points previously raised.


Currently, the traffic outlook and forecast do not present a clear picture, however, current level of operations and proposed dates for travel restrictions to be lifted in the Region point toward a slow recovery.


In this context ATC personnel competencies, wellbeing, and adequate supervision will play a key role.


This webinar will provide information for compliance with the Council Aviation Recovery Taskforce (CART) recommendation to support the fastest possible return to normal aviation operations by regularly reviewing the necessity of continuing the application of risk mitigation measures, as the risk of COVID-19 transmission diminishes; as well as measures which are no longer needed and should be discontinued.


The webinar also provides additional information to apply the NACC Strategic approach recommendations with regards to Air Traffic Management.


This webinar will discuss:

    1. Review Basic Protective Measures to be Implemented
    2. Lessons Learned for Enhanced Procedures for ANS Facilities
    3. Enhanced ATC Supervision and ATC Personnel Competencies
    4. Personnel Wellbeing
    5. Lessons Learned for Procedures to Address Compromised Facilities
