Road to the Academy


  1. Road to the Academy (Part 5.2- Security)

    by , 01-04-2015 at 08:25 PM (Road to the Academy)
    The Other Part of becoming an ATC'er is you have to have a security clearance. For En-route guys/gals you have to get a Secret clearance. I heard that Terminal guys/gals only have to have a Public Trust. Your best bet in my opinion is to google SF-86 and fill it out. This form requires you to go back 10 years of your life so the sooner you get all the information the quicker it will be to fill out the online form once you get access to eQip (what they use to process security clearances).

  2. Road to the Academy (Part 5.1- Medical)

    Alright when it comes to the medical to become an Air Traffic Controller, you have to take a Personality Test, Drug test and Physical. You have to schedule all of these separate (unless your lucky and live near a facility that can get it all done in one day).

    Personality Test (MMPI-II)
    This is a 567 question test. It's long and tedious. It ask all types of questions ranging from your sex life to how others may view you. In my opinion, it ask the same question over and over just ...
  3. Road to the Academy (Part 5- TOL)

    Finally, after all that waiting you get an email from someone with the FAA and in the subject box it says "Tentative Offer Letter - FAA Air Traffic Control Specialist." To make this post short just go to this thread

    it will tell you all about the TOL process.
  4. Road to the Academy (Part 4- PTOL)

    Ok, so for this FEB OTS bid after taking the AT-SAT and passing, the FAA contacts you with a Preliminary TOL. This TOL tells you what type of controller you got selected to be (en-route or Terminal) and a projected class start period (given in a 3 month block ex. April-June). It also comes with a document that you have to sign and send back accepting the position. After that you wait and wait until you get a TOL.
  5. Road to the Academy (Part 3- AT-SAT)

    Ok, So in my previous blog post I mentioned that you would get the job as long as you passed everything else. Well the the first thing you have to get pass is the AT-SAT.

    Once you get pass the Bio-Q, you will be contacted by RVA about scheduling your AT-SAT test. This contact came in form of an email and had directions on how to schedule. You pretty much go online enter this code that is in the email and select the date you want to test, the location of where you will test is already ...
