Federal Aviation Administration

At the FAA, Air Traffic Control Specialists (ATCS) have three distinct areas of specialization :

  1. Terminal (Tower) Controllers, who control air traffic at airports and give pilots taxiing and takeoff instruction, air traffic clearances and advice
  2. En Route Center Controllers, who give aircraft instructions, air traffic clearances, and advice regarding flight conditions while en route between airports
  3. Flight Service Station Controllers, who provide preflight, in-flight and emergency assistance to all pilots on request

In addition to an Air Traffic Controller certificate, air traffic control specialists must possess :

  • A rating for the facility to which they are assigned. This facility rating requires a demonstrated knowledge of the kind and location of radio aids to air navigation, the terrain, the landmarks, the communications systems and circuits, and the procedures peculiar to the area covered by the facility. All required certificates and ratings must be obtained within time limits established by the agency management.
  • At least a second class Medical Examination detailed in 14 CFR Part 67. Medical examinations must be conducted by a FAA-designated Aviation Medical Examiner.

Although there are provisions for hiring individuals with no previous air traffic controller experience, as of early 2002, the FAA is only hiring graduates of FAA-approved post-secondary educational programs, current or former federal employees (including former military members eligible for a Veteran's Readjustment Appointment), or Retired Military Air Traffic Controllers for positions in the En Route Center or Terminal specialty areas.

To be eligible for the program, you must meet all of the following criteria :

  • Be on terminal leave pending retirement from active duty military service or have retired from active duty military service on or after September 17, 1999.
  • Have received either an air traffic control specialist certification and/or a facility rating according to FAA standards.
  • Meet all application, qualification and position requirements, including applicable medical and security requirements.

Controllers hired under this program are given time-limited appointments, meaning that their appointments will have a specific termination date attached to them. The initial appointment may be up to 10 years and may not exceed the last day of the month in which the controller turns age 56. Appointments can be extended for up to five years at a time.

You will be required to submit a Retired Military Controller Specialist Job Application and proof of your retired status (Form DD 214). Do not submit the OF-612 federal job application form. Other FAA Application Forms you may need are located at the FAA website.

Eligibility requirements, privileges, and performance standards for Air Traffic Tower Operators and Aircraft Dispatchers are detailed in 14 CFR Part 65.
