Air traffic was a passion for me. My ability to multi-task, remain calm in a stressful environment, provide superior judgement to safely and expeditiously control air traffic in multiple situations, adapt to constantly changing weather and traffic conditions, and the capacity to adjust to constantly changing shifts I feel make me uniquely qualified to become a train operator. Many of the above mentioned aptitudes I gained from working on the flight deck of four aircraft carriers under deployment. While being an Air Traffic Controller gave the ability to mentally multi-task, I am also a private pilot which allows me to physically perform many simultaneous functions.
Skills I learned and developed as a broadcast journalism major and radio announcer, along with the necessary expertise to express myself clearly and concisely as an Air Traffic Controller give me the experience required to be a part of the MTS.
Air Traffic Controllers are required to retire the month of their 56th birthday. While I have enjoyed my retirement, I feel it is time to resume employment. After a conversation with an employee of the MTS, it seems this would be a perfect fit for me.
During this period I was certified to operate at three different facilities (Gillespie Field, El Cajon, CA, San Diego Lindbergh Tower, San Diego, CA, and Southern California Radar Approach Control, San Diego, CA) each with an increasing degree of complexity and responsibility. Duties included, but were not limited to the following:
Assigned to three active duty fighter squadrons and one recruiting command. An Aviation Fire Control Technician is responsible for maintaining and repairing radar and computer weapon control systems.
I was assigned duties specifically to the systems of the F14A Tomcat fighter. In addition to my duties as an AWG-9 control system specialist, I was also certified as a plane captain and final checker/troubleshooter which required knowledge of most systems of the F14A Tomcat. I was also the only Aviation Fire Control Technician, at that time, qualified to actively turn the two Pratt and Whitney JTF10A engines.
While assigned to recruiting duties, I was responsible for contacting, interviewing, testing, and enlistment of qualified candidates for the United States Navy. I maintained a higher than average monthly enlistment goal for Navy Recruiting District (San Diego) during my three year tenure.
