A Workforce United under Safer Skies

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is the organization responsible for managing our nation's busy skies. With more than a million domestic passengers and countless tons of cargo in the air every day, our mission is a far-reaching and critical one. Our nationwide workforce is dedicated to providing the American public with the safest, most efficient and environmentally responsible civil aviation systems and airspace possible.

The FAA carries a huge responsibility – from directing air traffic in and around the nation and helping ensure protection of the public during space launches, to airport safety and inspections, and standards for airport design, construction, and operation; regulating flight inspection standards and advancing satellite and navigation technology, to developing and maintaining the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen).

To accomplish all this and more, the FAA relies on the talents of a diverse group of aviation, technical and business professionals to perform a variety of hands-on functions that keep air travel moving freely and safely.
