FAA Accepting Applications From Experienced Controllers

Active-Duty Service Members May Receive Tentative Veterans’ Preference

If you are an experienced air traffic controller who would like to join the FAA’s ranks, the agency is now accepting applications nationwide now through Dec. 9, 2018.

Applicants must be willing to work at any FAA air traffic facility, and may be required to attend specialized training at the FAA Academy in Oklahoma City.

Active-duty service members will receive tentative veterans’ preference if they submit a document from the armed forces certifying that within 120 days they are expected to be discharged or released from active-duty service under honorable conditions and their application shows that they have the required service. They must provide to the Servicing Human Resource Management Office a DD Form 214 documenting discharge/release and showing that the service was honorable or general. Veterans on terminal leave must provide documentation certifying authorized terminal leave.

Following are qualifications for experienced controllers:

  • United States citizenship
  • No older than 35 years of age (with special exceptions)

The announcement is open to candidates who have maintained at least 52 consecutive weeks of air traffic control experience involving the full-time active separation of air traffic. The candidate must have an air traffic control certification or facility rating within five years of application while serving at any of the following:

  • an FAA air traffic control facility
  • a civilian or military air traffic control facility of the Department of Defense
  • a tower operating under contract with the FAA under section 47124

Depending on the nature of an applicant’s previous experience as an air traffic controller, other qualifications may be required for employment.
