Disabled Vets Offered Air Traffic Controller Training

FAA yesterday said disabled veterans will have access to on-the-job training to become air traffic controllers or technicians installing and repairing air traffic equipment via a new program. The program was launched at an event on Capitol Hill attended by Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, D-HI, a WWII hero and leader on veterans' issues, and Department of Veterans Affairs Undersecretary for Benefits Adm. Daniel L. Cooper.

"Providing disabled veterans with the job skills they need to succeed here at home after serving their country must remain a high priority for this Congress," said Inouye, who chairs the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation. "The Veterans Employment Program is an ideal way for our nation to show its gratitude for the sacrifices our men and women in uniform have, and continue to make, every day."

Veterans will be trained at FAA's Academy in Oklahoma City and will complete the same training as other employees in similar positions. Once they complete the program, they will be eligible for an FAA appointment.
