Administration Plans To Hire 15,000 Over 10 Years
If you've ever wanted to be an Air Traffic Controller ... this
could be your chance. The FAA has announced the public now has the
opportunity to apply to become air traffic controllers, and is
accepting applications from the general public for trainee air
traffic controller positions through July 17, 2009.
The job announcements include vacancies for both Terminal and En
Route controller positions throughout the nation.
The opportunity for the general public to apply for entry-level
air traffic controller positions does not come along very
The job openings to the public support the FAA’s
controller workforce plan to hire approximately 15,000 controllers
over the next decade. The FAA is undertaking an intensive hiring
effort to replace the large number of controllers who began their
careers in the 1980s and are now eligible to retire.
The job openings are being advertised nationwide in newspapers
and magazines, on the radio, on the federal government’s job
announcement website, USA Jobs, and on general job search websites
like Monster, CareerBuilder and Yahoo! HotJobs.
Any qualified U.S. citizen under the age of 31 can apply for the
general public air traffic controller vacancies.
