Hello Friends,


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is opening a window of opportunity for people interested in applying for a job as an air traffic controller from June 24-27 and we are seeking your help.


As you know, safety is paramount to the mission of the FAA and one of the ways we achieve this mission is by having people with varied backgrounds and different perspectives in our workforce. This commitment to diversity makes us more inclusive and innovative, leading us to be stronger, and safer as an agency.


For this controller hiring opportunity, we are launching an awareness campaign to increase and diversify the number of applications that we receive from women, minorities, and individuals from disadvantaged communities.


We need your help to get the word out to as many people as possible so they can be prepared to submit their application during this year’s window that runs from June 24-27. You can get more information about the application process, requirements and qualifications to become an air traffic controller at www.faa.gov/Be-ATC.


We developed a toolkit to assist you in sharing this opportunity with your networks, members, and other outreach groups. Be sure to follow the FAA on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram and share our posts that raise awareness about this great opportunity.


We know what it takes to keep the National Air System the safest and most efficient in the world. But we know we can’t do it without you! So help us find diverse, qualified, and motivated individuals from across the country to fill our applicant pools.


Thanks so much for your partnership in this effort,
