Candidate(s) selected for this position will function as a TRACON Instructor-II, in the Terminal Radar Domain (RTF) at the FAA Academy in Oklahoma City, OK.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is responsible for ensuring that air traffic control specialists provide the flying public with a high level of safety and professionalism. A well-trained Air Traffic Control (ATC) workforce plays an essential role in fulfilling this responsibility.

To provide such air traffic services, the FAA trains new air traffic control specialists and provides recurrent training to current air traffic control specialists.
