Subject: Application for position of Air Traffic Controller

Dear Ms. Gardner,

I am applying for the position of Air Traffic Controller as seen advertised. I believe the skills and experience I have to offer in this respect will prove to be of considerable benefit to Continental Airlines.

The experience and skills I have to offer Continental Airlines include:

• I hold B.S. in Air Traffic Control gained at Environmental Technical Institute, Blue Island, IL in the year 2004.

• I have extensive experience in directing and controlling ground traffic as well as air traffic.

• This includes the taxiing of aircraft, the movements of baggage and maintenance vehicles, as well as airport personnel on the ground.

• It also includes checking weather conditions, maintaining appropriate distances between airborne incoming and outbound traffic, and maintaining close radio communications links with aircraft pilots.

• I have experience and understanding in the precise timing needed for flight vector changes.

• I can make quick and accurate decisions where necessary, directing aircraft to maintain a circling traffic pattern, or directing ground traffic to the appropriate runway when space becomes available, as well as maintaining safe distances between all aircraft and ground based vehicles.

• I can organize and provide flight plans to all aircraft about to enter my assigned air space, and ensure that they adhere to the instructions, as well as monitor their progress.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for considering me for this position, and I look forward to the chance to expand on my qualifications, experience and skills at interview level.
