Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Academy

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a component of the United States Department of Transportation, serves primarily to ensure aviation safety, promote air commerce, and support national security through management of the National Airspace System. Training programs are offered to employees in each of the nine FAA regions in the United States.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Academy was established in the summer of 1959 to administer the agency's technical training programs. FAA personnel must be familiar with current aviation concepts, knowledge, and skills and must also acquire advanced knowledge and skills in order to operate and maintain new equipment as it is developed. Training is provided for air traffic control specialists, engineers, technicians, and pilots. In addition, a wide range of instructor development courses is offered to ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of academy technical instructors.
