FAA Hires the Best and Brightest

FAA’s diversity push includes focus on hiring people with ‘severe intellectual’ and ‘psychiatric’ disabilities

FAA says people with ‘severe’ disabilities are most underrepresented segment of federal workforce
By Emma Colton

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is actively recruiting workers who suffer “severe intellectual” disabilities, psychiatric problems and other mental and physical conditions under a diversity and inclusion hiring initiative spelled out on the agency’s website.

“Targeted disabilities are those disabilities that the Federal government, as a matter of policy, has identified for special emphasis in recruitment and hiring,” the FAA’s website states. “They include hearing, vision, missing extremities, partial paralysis, complete paralysis, epilepsy, severe intellectual disability, psychiatric disability and dwarfism.”

The initiative is part of the FAA’s “Diversity and Inclusion” hiring plan, which says “diversity is integral to achieving FAA’s mission of ensuring safe and efficient travel across our nation and beyond.” The FAA’s website shows the agency’s guidelines on diversity hiring were last updated on March 23, 2022.

This one filled the inbox, thanks to all. In other news, the FAA has grounded Boeing’s 737 Max-9 aircraft after the recent explosive decompression incident. Initial looks point to a Quality Assurance failure at Boeing. By coincidence in 2022 Boeing added Diversity and Climate to their core values along with Safety and Quality. Must be working as expected.

Well, dont that fill you with the warm fuzzies.



It’s not a comedy, it was prophecy.

Monday Night Rehabilitation when?!


So the FAA-q is just think’n about doing what the TSA, FiB, AFT, IRS, FEMA, EPA, Dahpartmint of Edjukashun, and Post Office has been doing since inception?

Liberty and security, we really do deserve neither.

A pending-victim in the BDL flight path.

Nothing like a good dose of DEI shit to make something crash and burn!

Brilliant. Diversity hires in the cockpit and retards controlling them from the ground. What could possibly go wrong?

TSA stealing your firearms from the luggage…

TSA – Thieves, Shitheads & Assholes, Thugs Sexually Assaulting, … Most of them I’ve ever seen looked like they couldn’t even mop floors and make fries at a fast-food franchise.


I almost pistol whipped a TSA agent in Kandahar…assholes.

Daniel Bernath was a TSA screener. Kind of ironic that the agency responsible for making airline travel safe had a failed kamikaze on the street.

Makes you feel great about flying if the DEI hires make their way into the ATC control rooms too.


Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

Retard at the radar: I got six planes here on final approach. So I didn’t see one lousy plane on the runway. You think you can do better?
Pale normie: yes, I do.
Retard: Not on my watch, you won’t! FAA said so!


Check my comments in the HOT for some quotes sent to me by a nephew that currently works for the FAA.

Remember when you had to be fully qualified for a job…to get the job?


No, I’ve been enlisted my entire career. Never had to be close to “fully qualified.”

Then again, unlike some West Pointers who were “fully qualified” to lead troops in austere conditions, I’ve never failed to find a LandNAV point.

Bernasty could have a job in the FAA is how I read this.

Skivvy Stacker

He was a pilot/flight controller all the way to the ground.


Yep, he meticulously planned that flight with adequate fuel reserves to get to the crash site. And, as an aside, he’s been maintaining a steady speed, heading, and an altitude of -6’ AGL for going on six years now.
Steady as she goes, Dan…steady as she goes!


Once more, with feeling!

There once was a lawer named Dan,
Who got himself thrown in the can,
He was finally let out,
Then went flying about,
And that’s when the shit hit the fan!


Rest in pieces, you no-account, four-flushing son of a bitch!


Sounds like a good plan. If you’re hiring janitorial or mailroom staff. Contractors gotta cash in on that “Ability One” program. It’s a fookin’ gold mine.


I worked at the FAA. Pretty sure they were hiring folks with severe mental and psychiatric disabilities back then. Hell, I was probably one!


I remember when I watched that John Cusack movie, “Pushing Tin”. Almost put me off flying.


Coming to an ATC tower near you!


Who says schizophrenic meth heads can’t pilot an airliner?
We definitely need some mentally retarded ATC ” Delta 104…..I like hotdogs”


Not a lawyer, not even the barracks-style, but wouldn’t the influence of mushrooms remove the “intent” leg of the legal murder stool?

That hardly removes any culpability, in my mind, and I hope all deserved negligence convictions are not served concurrently. Is attempted negligent homicide a thing?


That’s what I want for my next commercial flight, blind dwarfs with severe intellectual disabilities as the air traffic controllers for my trip.


I’m picturing a great game of D&D – with dwarven JTACs and dragon A-10s.


Eff it! I’m driving.

Those are the folks I want working on my airplane…mentally and emotionally fucked up. I mean, who else would understand how dumb it is to fly a 120,000 ton collection of aluminum, steel, plastic, rubber, and peanuts above the surface of the Earth at 700 miles per hour?


That’s one very heavy plane, dude. 😀. A US Navy super carrier is around a 100K tons.

Skivvy Stacker

And if you launched it into the air at 700 miles per hour it would fly…..for a while.


The FAA does not do aircraft maintenance. Their job is to keep the aircraft from running into each other on the ground or in the air. They are also supposed to keep them from running into inanimate objects and the ground. But they do dismantle crashed aircraft to try to determine the cause of the crash. FAA is also responsible for licensing pilots and mechanics. How mentally impaired and/or unstable people can perform these functions is beyond me. I last flew in the 1990’s and was always impressed with the professionalism of the FAA people I spoke with on the radio.


It’s those peanuts that are critical for a safe flight! 🥜 🤣

So…when are we gonna hire them to work in our nuclear missile silos as Launch Operators?


They’ll have to run that by Milley first.

They’ll probably walk in right past the AWOL SECDEF.


We have a SECDEF?


Just more people for Trump to fire, more splodey heads when he does.

Please pass the popcorn.


We’re so screwed.
