The FAA is hiring Operations Aviation Safety Inspectors with a higher starting salary up from Step 1 to Step 5 of the GS pay scale.

We are offering a $10K relocation allowance for candidates whose residence is 100 miles or more away from the offered duty location. You must sign a Service Agreement and remain in that location for one year.

Aviation Safety Inspectors in the General Aviation Operations (GAO) and Air Carrier Operations (ACO) specialties apply knowledge and skills typically acquired as airmen (pilots, navigators, flight instructors, etc.) to develop and administer regulations and safety standards pertaining to the operation of aircraft.

To apply directly to the FAA for immediate consideration:

Submit your resume to: [email protected]
Follow the instructions on Application Helpful Hints for what must be included on your resume
Include your desired location(s)

Note: If you have already applied to the current open-continuous vacancy announcement in USAJobs, you are not eligible for immediate consideration through the On-the-Spot Hiring Authority.

The timeline differs. Its the government. My process took from start to finish 9.5-10 months. Granted there was the government shutdown that delayed me by a month. Your time my vary. After being referred you still gotta be selected, scheduled for an interview, pre-employment checkride and have an start date. So, be patient. You can interview, be hired, go thru training and finish IOE with a regional faster than going thru the FAA hiring process. The pay is good and right now the agency is hurting for ASI's BAD. If you're looking for stability and growth, this place isn't bad. Good Luck.

For me every step in the process took about a month. After I was referred, about one month later I got the call to interview. That interview was scheduled 3-4 weeks out. It took about another 3-4 weeks after that for me to get a tentative offer, and then just over a month for my flight check to be scheduled. After the flight check, I was given a firm offer within 2 days with a choice of start dates. I elected to give my previous employer 1 month notice. So from referred to sitting down at my desk at the FSDO, it was somewhere in the 4-5 month range. For what itís worth, Iím told that I got pretty lucky, so Iím guessing 6+ months isnít unusual either.

EDIT: for what itís worth turns out I still had the emails so Iíll share my specific timeline:

9/13/17: Referred
9/25/17: Called to schedule interview
10/4/17: Interview
10/20/17: Tentative job offer
11/1/17: Called to schedule flight check
12/11/17: Flight check
12/12/17: Firm job offer
1/22/18: Scheduled first day (canceled due to shutdown)
1/29/18: First day at FSDO
