Air Traffic Control (ATC)

Control, manage and direct the surrounding airspace and aircraft of Air Force bases.

How do you learn to manage the flow of aircraft on the ground and in 50,000 square miles of airspace? With state-of-the-art simulators, expert instruction and lots of practice. Obviously, becoming an Air Traffic Controller requires a great deal of classroom time, but not just books and lectures. You’ll spend a majority of your days working with computer simulations that expose you to real-world scenarios. Most classroom exercises will be done in teams so you get used to working as a tight-knit crew. When you graduate, you’ll be qualified to work at any airport in the U.S. and military facilities around the world.
