Exposing FAA Corruption & Discrimination Against Veterans and Students of All Races
Exposing FAA Corruption & Discrimination Against             Veterans and Students of All Races

Are you kidding me?!

During the telephone conference with CTI institutions, an FAA official (Joseph Teixeira) explained the reasoning behind the decision to change the hiring plans. He stated that these changes were recommended in the Barrier Analysis report.

Ironically, the Barrier Analysis was so flawed that the author had to admit the study had significant limitations. How significant? It was so bad that the FAA rejected the paper in its entirety. The following is a direct quote from the Barrier Analysis report (page 155):

Study Limitations/Challenges

The barrier analysis was underway for several years and, due to a variety of circumstances, the final product was rendered unacceptable. It did not meet the needs of Federal Aviation Administration and/or the other stakeholders.

So the pressing question is this: if the FAA rejected the Outtz study why the would the same FAA use it as the basis for changing the hiring plans? The madness does not end there. Mr. Teixeira stated the decision to use the biographical questionnaire (BQ) was due to it being designed and well researched by CAMI. Here is Mr. Teixeira’s direct quote from the telecon:

 “The biographical questionnaire was designed through CAMI, and researched as well -- thoroughly researched through CAMI, and we've done some additional research with it as well, so it is proven to be a valid instrument for assessing experience, work habits, education, and so on, and dimensions that are related to the success on the job.”

The only problem with that statement is that the BQ was not well-researched at CAMI. The study in question is identified as DOT/FAA/AM-12/19. The working title is Development, Validation, and Fairness of a Biographical Data Questionnaire for the Air Traffic Control Specialist Occupation. In the abstract of the paper it recommended that the study be further developed as a potential ATCS selection procedure (emphasis added). This CAMI study also recommended three additional studies be conducted. It concluded with the following statement;

“Further investigations of CBAS in relation to these outcomes seem warranted as data become available and empirical studies are technically feasible under the relevant professional guidelines, standards, principles, and practices for the validation of employee selection procedures.”

The FAA HR department was so intent on getting the hiring plans changed they ignored crucial information in the reports that they relied so heavily upon. Specifically, the Barrier Analysis was labeled unacceptable due to incomplete data and the CAMI study was simply an initial study into the possible development of a bio-data questionnaire. Even the CAMI’s own research scientist recommended further investigations.


While the CAMI staff adheres to “relevant professional guidelines, standards, principles, and practices” it appears that the FAA HR department is not burdened by these requirements. Either the HR department did not read these two studies and was unaware of the findings contained within or they knew exactly what was in the reports and hoped no one would be wise to them. Either way, it shows a complete lack of integrity and professionalism. Sadly, this is the best we can expect out of the current FAA-OHR management.

Safe Towers Act:





There were a total of 964 new hires… who entered training at an air traffic control facility….


Of those, CTI hires attained CPC status from their first facility at a rate of 74.6%...


followed by Military at 70.3%... 


and General Public at a rate of 44.7%...


CTI and Military attained first facility CPC status at a nearly 65% greater rate than General Public.

We are students and veterans who believe those who serve in the military or graduate the CTI Program are better prepared to enter the air traffic control specialist career path. CTI  and veteran students of all races and genders perform better and certify at a much higher rate than off-the-street candidates. The FAA is well aware of this fact, yet due to alleged discrimination, that their own studies disprove, the FAA has effectively eliminated the CTI/ Veteran special hiring pool.

Oh where oh where has Juggalo CHRIS METTS gone, oh where oh where could he be…


After recusing himself for channeling Juggalo money to Tetra and others, Chris Metts goes DEEP DEEP UNDERCOVER (that’s for you PJ because we know you get off pretending to be a spy- we know the real story Pinnochijoe) trying to distance himself from the Juggalos.


NOTE TO CHRIS: Either come clean now Chris- or you’ll NEVER get the chance. Little  Joey’s empire is crumbling away fast- and he will make YOU the fall guy. HELPFUL HINT #1: You may want to ring up Bill Nixon and get some REAL advice. HELPFUL HINT #2: If Bill tells you to just lay-low- errrr… get another “adviser.”

YES NATCA AND LOCKHEED.. There is a Santa Claus... if you're TetraTech AMT or Infina...

Money was diverted from many things including ERAM F&E to various Juggalo pals
