Welcome to the NATCA Family, Gulf Shores FCT!

NATCA is excited to welcome Gulf Shores Federal Contract Tower (FCT) (JKA) to the family! Gulf Shores FCT is located in Alabama and is the second busiest air traffic control tower in the state. The airport was first used as an outlying field for the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla. JKA currently has two runways and primarily serves private charters, corporate jets, and other General Aviation pilots.

The facility members recently elected Bryan Stanley to serve as their Facility Representative. Stanley was previously a NATCA member when he worked at Atlanta TRACON earlier in his career. On the decision to join NATCA, Stanley said, “Being part of NATCA gives our workforce a fair voice as we work in partnership with management to enhance safety in the National Airspace System.”
