HEADQUARTERS, NAVAL AIR SYSTEMS COMMAND, PATUXENT RIVER, Md.– Two hundred nineteen NAVAIR civilians and military members graduated recently from the NAVAIR Leadership Development Program (NLDP) and Journey Leadership Development Program (JLDP).

“These programs have challenged you to get out of your comfort zone and put you on the path to be NAVAIR’s future leaders,” said acting NAVAIR Deputy Commander Jerry Short at a virtual graduation ceremony on Oct. 7. “We’ll look to you to answer Vice Adm. [Carl] Chebi’s call to action to apply our resources to the most important issues facing naval aviation and our Navy today: speed, affordability, availability, and outcomes. We must deliver the critical capabilities and readiness our fleet needs, and we must continuously look for should-cost opportunities across the acquisition life cycle. The networks you’ve started to grow in NLDP and JLDP will help you identify those opportunities and overcome obstacles to achieve mission success.”


Administered by NAVAIR’s Career Planning and Development Division, a part of the Human Capital Management Dept., both programs help prepare mid- to senior-grade employees at all NAVAIR sites to learn and master leadership skills more effectively. Over the course of several years, participants take classroom-based leadership development courses and online training, shadow senior leaders, find a mentor and engage in professional reading, among other things.
