    like in the OP's original post. You have 3 years after you graduate to get hired with your CTI bid. If you dont you have to request a one year extension within 60 days of the end of your initial 3 year window. Not sure what happens if you dont. They are still hiring CTI applicants but you need a jobcode to apply. Its been a long time since i applied to aviator so i really dont remember much about that part of the process. Lately the panels have been during March and October, maybe a smaller summer panel???

    Re: CTI Applicant Process

    Having trouble editing/updating the first post, so here's some new info and an updated flow chart diagram.

    One avenue to become an air traffic controller within the Federal Aviation Administration is the Collegiate Training Initiative (CTI) program. As of 2011 the FAA recognizes 36 schools throughout the nation in the CTI program. Prior to graduating from your CTI school, applicants are scheduled to take a pre-employment test called (Air Traffic Selection and Training) AT-SAT. If an applicant does not pass this aptitude test, they are not eligible to apply. If an applicant does pass and successfully graduates from their CTI school, they will be given a CTI Job Code that is used to apply to the FAA via a CTI announcement. These job announcements are only available to applicants that attended a CTI school and received a passing score on AT-SAT. Applicants who fail AT-SAT are awarded one opportunity to re-take the test within one year of their first testing date. The re-take score overwrites a previous AT-SAT score, regardless of lower or higher. If an applicant fails the AT-SAT test a second time, they will not be eligible to apply under a CTI vacancy announcement. Eligibility under the CTI program lasts for three years from the date you graduate from your CTI school or until your 31st birthday, whichever is shorter. If an applicant is not selected after three years from their graduation date, they may request one-year extensions of the CTI eligibility by contacting FAA-Aviation Careers Division within 60 calendar days of the three-year expiration date. Applicants may continue to apply for one-year extensions until turning age 31. After graduation all responsibilities for rescheduling an AT-SAT testing date/retake and/or requests for extensions of CTI eligibility rest solely with the applicant, not their CTI school.

    AT-SAT testing is generally conducted in the Spring and Fall of each year. The FAA contracts out this service to a private company who contacts you via e-mail in order to schedule your AT-SAT testing date and location. Normally, this test if offered before your projected CTI Graduation Date, although it is possible to take your AT-SAT after you have already graduated. The test is paid for by the FAA.

    The Federal Aviation Administration fiscal year begins on October 1st and ends on September 30th of each calendar year.

    Normally there will be what is called a “rolling” CTI vacancy announcement available for CTI applicants to apply to all fiscal year long (or for some extended period of time based on the needs of the FAA). Applicants select two geographic preferences (states) on their application. Referral Lists for Centralized Selection Panels can be generated at any time, in order to collect Submitted applications from the current announcement for employment consideration at the next scheduled Centralized Selection Panel (CSP). Applicants may be referred for one, both, or none of your states based solely on whether or not the facilities within that state are projected to have a need for new controllers and whether or not your application meets the minimum requirements for the vacancy announcement.

    Centralized Selection Panels can occur at any time and are scheduled based on the projected hiring needs of the FAA. Generally, there are 2-4 CSPs scheduled each fiscal year. CSPs meet in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The selection panel consists of various FAA regional managers from facilities across the United States. A representative from Washington, D.C. for the Air Traffic Organization (ATO) Workforce Hiring and Staffing will meet the panel of managers in Oklahoma City and give them direction on making selections. Over the course of one week, the panel considers ALL the applications that were referred and starts making selections. This includes applicants from ALL available vacancy announcements including Veterans Readjustment Appointment Applicants (VRA), Retired Military Controllers (RMC), Current and Prior Civilian Air Traffic Controllers (REINST), Collegiate Training Initiative Applicants (CTI), Control Tower Operator Applicants (CTO), and Public Announcement/Off the Street Applicants (PUBNAT/OTS).
    Selections are based on numerous factors, one being whether your AT-SAT score fell into the Qualified (70.0—84.9) or Well-Qualified (85.0—100.0) category.
