Air Traffic Control Safe Operation and Readiness Act

This bill revises the hiring process for air traffic control specialists.

Specifically, the bill requires the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to

consider for the interview stage of the hiring process candidates who score at or above the passing score on the Air Traffic Skills Assessment (AT-SA) and meet minimum qualifications established by the FAA, and revise the AT-SA to ensure that all questions are supported by a peer reviewed job analysis and that it does not incorporate any biographical questionnaire or other questions of a biographical nature.
