Position Paper

This paper will provide an historical overview of the FAA Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative (CTI) program and summarize recent decisions regarding the new air traffic controller hiring process that was announced on January 8, 2014. The following discussion will show why this new hiring process will jeopardize air traffic safety, cost millions of dollars more to implement, and take longer to train a controller workforce that is already critically under-manned. It will further reveal that this new hiring decision has misled thousands of college students who have followed the instructions on the FAA’s website only to have the FAA renege on its stated hiring practices.
