Moving the World in More Ways than One

Because providing the nation ways to safely move people and cargo worldwide goes beyond simply ensuring the safety of air travel. The FAA is dedicated to reducing the impact of flight on the environment through our people, our products and systems, and the way we conduct our business.

Through our NextGen green initiatives we are working to make flying quieter, cleaner and more fuel-efficient. This includes the use of alternative fuels, new equipment and operational procedures that will work to lessen our impact on the climate. Precision flight paths will help us limit the amount of noise that communities experience, save fuel and reduce operating costs which, in turn, save taxpayer dollars.

Developing and maintaining the technology needed to make these strides requires a skilled workforce committed to ushering in the next generation of safe, efficient and responsible flight. A variety of opportunities await those interested in putting their skills to work to advance these initiatives, limit the environmental impact of flying and ensure the future of civil aviation for generations to come.

In addition to our environmental initiatives, the FAA also participates in government-wide charitable efforts such as Feds Feed Families. As part of this program, employees donate food to feed needy families.
