Course Information

A generation of air traffic controllers is nearing retirement. these individuals are at the crux of aviation safety, and the next generation of protection must be ready to take over. will you be one of them?

As an air traffic controller, your role can not be overdramatized. You are responsible for directing aircraft entering and leaving the airport, instructing pilots on when and where they can land and depart - minimizing flight delays, and most importantly, keeping passengers safe.

Through classroom instruction, laboratory simulations and hands-on learning in Lewis' state-of-the-art facilities, Lewis students will be fully prepared for entry into the FAA Academy*, where you will complete your air traffic control training.

*All students will need to pass the AT-SAT Aptitude Test before their final training at the FAA Academy in Oklahoma City.
