This is an intensive program of classroom study and laboratory practice using state-of-the-art air traffic control simulators to enhance and reinforce classroom study. Students develop the following skills:
- analytical thinking
- clear and concise communication
The Aviation Accreditation Board International accredits this program and the Federal Aviation Administration certifies flight and ground instruction.
The Federal Aviation Administration's 2015 Controller Workforce Plan has projected that that agency plans to hire more than 6,300 new controllers over the next five years to keep pace with the expected attrition rate and traffic growth. The total number of planned hires for the period of 2015-2024 is 10,241 new controllers. Increases in the volume of air traffic will require more controllers to handle the additional work. New computerized systems will assist controllers by automatically making many of the routine decisions. This will allow controllers to handle more traffic, thus increasing their productivity.
To prepare for this challenge, students receive training in the methodologies and technologies that are currently being developed for the next generation of air traffic control systems. Despite the obvious demand for new controllers in the immediate future, competition to get into the FAA-approved training programs is expected to remain intense as there generally are many more applicants than there are openings. Graduates who have met all the FAA requirements will be eligible for consideration for employment.
Career examples include but are not limited to those shown in the following list. Advanced degrees or certifications may be required for academic or clinical positions.
The Aeronautical Management Technology - Air Traffic Management program is offered at Arizona State University.
