Veterans are proven leaders and are revered as some of our nation's finest citizens. That is why the FAA encourages Veterans to use their demonstrated leadership skills to ensure the safety of the nation once again, this time as America travels the skies.
The FAA is committed to welcoming Veterans into the civilian workforce and helping them transition into new career opportunities. We offer training and development programs dedicated to help our nation's Veterans enjoy new careers with FAA. From air traffic controller to transportation systems specialist to acquisition specialist and more, there are a variety of jobs available for Veterans looking to continue to serve their nation.
FAA supports Veterans through participation programs in the following areas:
All Veterans must submit a DD Form 214, Military Discharge (Member Copy 4 or equivalent). If you are claiming 10 point preference, in addition to your DD 214, you must submit a completed SF-15 (PDF)and supporting documents outlined on the SF-15. Documents must be uploaded or faxed to the Servicing Human Resource Office listed in this announcement and all documents must be received by the closing date of the announcement. If you fail to submit documentation, you will be assessed as a non-veteran.
If you are claiming 10 point preference and submit a DD214 but fail to submit an SF-15 and supporting documents outlined on the SF-15, you will be assessed as a 5 point preference eligible if your DD214 reflects you have the service qualifying for tentative preference (i.e. served in a war, campaign or expedition). Documents must be uploaded or faxed to the Servicing Human Resource Office listed in this announcement and all documents must be received by the closing date of the announcement. If you fail to submit documentation, you will be assessed as a non-veteran.
Veterans on active duty claiming veterans' preference will be granted a tentative preference if your application shows that you have the required service (i.e. served in a war, campaign or expedition). Prior to being appointed, you must provide to the Servicing Human Resource Office a form DD-214 documenting that the service was honorable or general. If you are on terminal leave, you must provide documentation certifying authorized terminal leave.
