The Federal Aviation Administration Executive System (FAES) is comprised of the top echelon of senior management at FAA. Ideal candidates for FAES positions are executives with proven track records managing large workforces in dynamic environments. These opportunities are classified into three groups:
The FAA Executive Compensation Plan covers all non-political Officers, Executives and Senior Professionals. Executives are assigned to one of three Compensation Bands to reflect rank and role. Each band is eligible for different aspects of compensation:
Each band's base salary falls in a set range. Salary ranges do not include locality pay, which is computed separately as a percent of salary, and is added to base salary. Base salary plus locality pay cannot exceed the current legislative cap of $179,700.
|Band||Base Salary Range|
|1||$127,900 - $173,700|
|2||$121,300 - $170,600|
|3||$114,600 - $168,500|
An annual base salary increase may be considered if you successfully meet all the expectations of your position for the year. You may be considered for a larger base salary increase if performance has been significantly above your peers — a Superior Contribution Increase (SCI). The SCI varies by individual but provides high performers with a superior recognition of contributions when combined with the annual adjustment.
Short-Term Incentives (STI) are rewards for leading the achievement of annual, predetermined agency and Line of Business goals and outcomes. All Executives and Senior Professionals are assigned to an individual STI plan. The target incentives vary depending on the position.
FAA's mission of safe and efficient flight is one that affects all Americans. It is crucial that we grow and maintain a workforce featuring a variety of perspectives.
