Air Traffic Control: Stoplight for the Sky

U.S. Navy Air Traffic Controller 1st Class Kristy Lescrynski, Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA), air traffic control training chief, right, works with a Djiboutian air traffic controller to determine the best approach path for an incoming aircraft at Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport, March 17, 2020. Prior to the implementation of U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention safety guidelines, Lescrynski worked in Ambouli’s tower to coordinate with host nation and coalition partners to ensure smooth air and ground operations at the airport. Since social distancing was implemented, U.S. controllers work out of a watch tower elsewhere on the flight line and maintain contact with Ambouli using alternate communication methods.
