CNATRA Leadership

Command Alignment

Chief of Naval Air Training (CNATRA) is aligned under Commander Naval Air Forces (CNAF) and Commander, Naval Air Force, Pacific Fleet - in the Naval Aviation Enterprise (NAE) concept. CNATRA is dual hatted as CNAF deputy commander for training. This alignment enables CNATRA to orchestrate and manage a full-spectrum training continuum, not only within the training command, but also throughout the NAE from student induction through the completion of fleet replacement squadron (FRS) training. This continuum and alignment enables leadership and training practitioners to design and optimize training content and flow across all phases and pipelines of the entire training spectrum to ensure the right training is conducted at the right level. Additionally this continuum and alignment ensures the most effective and efficient training organization is in place to achieve optimal student aviator time to train. It ultimately ensures the production of the world's finest aviation professionals. Our Naval Air Force comprises naval aviators and naval flight officers, and naval aircrewmen who can think, perform, excel under pressure, and deliver projecting power from ashore or at sea in all conditions.
