Air Traffic Controllers Hiring

Colleagues and Fellow Veterans,


I hope you are all off to a good start in the New Year. 


Recently I met with the Federal Aviation Administration senior leadership – they plan to hire over 600 new Air Traffic Control Specialists … and want as many of them as possible to be Veterans.  Given the pre-qualification requirements many of our recently transitioning Veterans will likely qualify. 


To be considered for a position as an air traffic controller, you must:

·         Be a U.S. citizen.

·         Start the FAA Academy no later than your 31st birthday.

·         Be willing to relocate to an air traffic facility based on the FAA’s highest needs at the time.

·         Have three years of progressively responsible work experience, or a Bachelor’s degree, or a combination of post-secondary education and work experience that totals three years.


Certainly sounds this opportunity is a perfect fit for most Veterans.  The FAA plans on posting this opportunity on or around February 10th – so this is our ‘heads up’.  There will also be a virtual career fair on the FAA website on February 12th.  For more detailed information about this opportunity and how to apply, visit the FAA online at http://www.faa.gov/jobs/recruiting_kit/ - they will be receiving applications through USA Jobs on the Office of Personnel website.
