COMBAT CONTROL

THE FIRST TO BATTLE

Some of the military’s most difficult missions are carried out by Combat Controller (CCT) who operates in remote, often hostile areas. Acting as a one-man attachment to other special forces teams, these highly specialized Airmen are trained in a wide range of skills, including scuba, parachuting and snowmobiling, as well as being FAA-certified air traffic controllers in order to establish air control and provide combat support on missions all over the globe.
