If you are already in the IFATC Recruiting process you do not need to submit a recruiting application. All current recruits will continue via their respective PMs with their Recruiter. Only new applicants need to submit an application and wait to be contacted.

Good luck!


Three new US Recruiters join the team! Welcome to @RTG113, @Will_A, and @Darius_Glover.

Each is a powerhouse controller in their own right, has spent a great deal of time training, serve as IFATC Supervisors and have a ton of experience to bring to the table. We’re thrilled to have them represent the team and help guide you through the Recruiting process.

Review the requirements above, submit an application, and they look forward to working with you!
