Zaharevitz, Walter
This booklet, one in a series on aviation careers, outlines the variety of careers in aviation available in federal, state, and local governmental agencies. The first part of the booklet provides general information about civil aviation careers with the federal government, including pay scales, job classifications, and working conditions. Following is a detailed summary of these nine job categories and their subcategories: air traffic controllers, electronic technicians, aviation safety inspectors, airspace system inspection pilots, flight test pilots, mechanics, engineers, engineering aids or technicians, and other professional employees. Most of the career opportunities described are available through the Federal Aviation Administration, the Department of Defense, or the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. For each job classification, information on the nature of the work, working conditions, where the jobs are, qualifications for entry, wages, opportunities for training, and outlook for the future is provided. The final sections of the guide discuss career opportunities at other federal agencies and state aviation departments and the outlook for aviation opportunities in government. (KC)
