    aerospace control and warning systems to ATC

    Hello,

    I'm currently in the Air Force and was looking into ATC. I'm a 1C5x1 (aerospace control and warning systems), my job is bringing the planes together insead of keeping them appart. I flight follow, deconflicting Alt. as needed, and control the tactical side of military planes (4v2 OPSAT, 4v4 DCA). I read and upload NOTAMs/AIRADs into our sytem, and communicate with ATC for IFR requests.

    I have read the different ways to get hired as a ATC, and I'm stuck in the middle of Off the Street and Military controlling expirience.

    I want to be an Air Traffic Controllor.

    1. Does anyone work with a prior 1C5x1?

    2.Do the skills listed above look more like ATC background or more like Off the Streets? (In the hiring process)

    3.Would AT-CTI benifit me? (In the hiring process)

    Thanks

    GO AF - cross train to ATC

    If you want to move to ATC you will need to crosstrain into 1C1x1 or get your CTI from a school. The background of 1C5x1 dosent meet the qualifications for the FAA.

    I controlled on a aircraft carrier for the navy, and basically if your not controlling at a shore facility recognized by the FAA you will not be able to be picked up under VRA. I applied to the last pubnat and got lucky. If you want to be a controller you have two options stay in and cross train or go to a CTI program.

    Again, if you Want to be an Air Traffic Controller - do it in the AF. Going to a CTI school may or may not result in what you want!

    Thanks for the help, but they will not let me cross train for any reason. I just thought the similarities were so close that it might have help my cause.
