Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Career Opportunities

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)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 - they will be receiving applications through USA Jobs on the Office of Personnel website.
