Air Traffic Control jobs

Air Traffic Control (ATC) is a highly skilled profession that involves managing the safe and efficient movement of aircraft in the airspace system. ATC professionals work in control towers, radar facilities, and air traffic control centers.

The main responsibilities of an air traffic controller include monitoring flight paths, communicating with pilots, and making decisions about routing and altitude. They use radar, computers, and other technology to ensure safe separations between aircraft and provide pilots with the information they need to fly safely.

To become an air traffic controller, you typically need a high school diploma and on-the-job training, as well as successful completion of a training program at the FAA Academy. Additionally, a thorough background check, physical examination, and security clearance are required.

ATC jobs are typically well-paying and offer benefits such as health insurance, retirement plans, and paid time off. However, the job can be demanding and requires quick decision-making, strong communication skills, and the ability to handle high levels of stress.
