Purpose of this order

a. This order specifies uniform procedures for Control Tower Operator (CTO) Certificates, governed by Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 65; and Air Traffic Safety Oversight Service (AOV) credentials authorized by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 1100.161 Air Traffic Safety Oversight. All air traffic control tower operators within the National Airspace System (NAS) require a CTO Certificate. AOV credentials are required for those who perform direct safety-related air traffic control services and/or certification on certifiable systems/subsystems/services in support of the NAS.

b. Part I of this order specifies uniform procedures for CTO certification and facility rating and the issuance of CTO certificates to all air traffic control tower operators (excluding Department of Defense (DoD) personnel) operating in the NAS. CTO certification and facility rating, and the issuance of CTO certificates for the DoD are contained in FAA Order 7220.1 Certification and Rating Procedures for Department of Defense (DoD) Personnel. CTO certificates are airman certificates issued under Title 49 of the United States Code (49 USC) § 44702 and 14 CFR part 65.

c. Part II of this order specifies the procedures used by AOV to issue credentials to those persons who perform direct safety-related air traffic control services and/or certification on certifiable systems/subsystems/services in support of the NAS. It also details the responsibilities of the ATO and AOV regarding the training, testing, and certification of ATO safety personnel and the subsequent issuance, maintenance, and removal of AOV credentials. AOV credentials are not airmen certificates issued under 49 USC § 44702 and 14 CFR part 65.
