Class of 2003
Navy, 7 Years

Air traffic controllers are the people who operate the air traffic control systems to expedite and maintain a safe and orderly flow of air traffic. They apply separation rules to keep aircraft apart from each other in their area of responsibility and move all aircraft safely and efficiently through their assigned sector of airspace. Because controllers have an incredibly large responsibility while on duty, the ATC profession is regarded around the world as one of the most difficult jobs today, and can be notoriously stressful depending on many variables (equipment, configurations, weather, traffic volume, human factors, etc.). Having said this, many controllers would cite high salary, very good employee benefits, autonomy, and flexible hours as major advantages of their job.
