Abstract:

This report presents the results of a detailed Air Force Occupational Survey of the Air Traffic Control AFS 272X0 career ladder and the Combat Control Team AFS 272X0D shred. The overall job structure of these two ladders was found to be diverse, with 10 major job groups being identified. Jobs identified varied primarily on the basis of specialization in the areas of Control Tower, Radar, Supervisory, Perimeter Acquisition Radar, Combat Control Team, Mobile, Terminal Instrument Procedures, Analysis, or Instructor functions. In addition, several job types andor subjob types were identified within the Radar, Control Tower, and Combat Control Team functional areas. The Air Traffic Control career ladder was divided into two main functional areas, Control Tower and Radar Air Traffic Control. Combat Control Team personnel perform few tasks in common with either of the major 272X0 Control Tower or Radar Air Traffic Control functional areas. In view of the specialization which was found to exist, it would appear that 1 some form of channelized training for 272X0 personnel would be more cost effective and 2 the creation of a separate AFSC for 272X0D personnel should be given serious consideration.
