The Federal Aviation Administration Executive System (FAES), the top echelon of senior management, is comprised of three groups:
- Officers - Assistant and Associate Administrators who report directly to the FAA Administrator provide corporate strategic vision and leadership. You foster alliances with industry and governments at all levels and ensure integration of priorities, programs and resources to meet our mission and goals.
- Executives - Executives lead our staff organizations and programs. You make up the first level of corporate leadership and are the link between the Administrator's Officers and the operational program staff. You�re responsible for establishing business plans, setting measurable outcomes, and adjusting resources in your organizations.
- Senior professionals - Senior Professionals provide world-class expertise, research and development in unique scientific and technical subject matter areas, occasionally supervising small groups of subordinate technical employees.
