CHA Consulting, Inc., is currently seeking an Aviation Project Manager to join our Aviation Planning & Program Group in any of our CHA office locations across the United States.


Airports are as diverse as the places we go. Whether it's a medium-hub commercial airport, small general aviation facility, or a military airbase, every destination is distinct, relying on specialized infrastructure and operating facilities. This uniqueness has guided our approach to aviation design and planning for more than 60 years. With knowledge that only comes from experience, we deliver personalized airside, landside and facility-related design and construction projects with minimal impact to airports and their travelers. Our in-depth understanding of state and federal regulations, as well as the technical requirements and challenges faced by modern airports, streamlines project delivery, ensuring standards are met on time and within budget. The result is a seamless travel experience.


CHA’s Aviation Project Manager leads planning and coordination of airport master plans, environmental reports and related studies for commercial service and general aviation airports.


The Aviation Project Manager guides airfield and airline terminal improvement plans, presents projects to technical and nontechnical teams, creates work plans for large and small-scale projects, and mentors entry and junior level staff in their careers. The role provides the opportunity to travel occasionally for projects and see your work in effect.


  • Bachelor’s degree in Planning, Engineering, or related Aviation discipline required; Master’s degree in related disciplines a plus.
  • AICP, AAAE Certified Member, Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) accreditation a plus.
  • Must have a valid driver's license.


  • A minimum of 7 years of Aviation Planning or relevant professional experience.
  • Experience working with airport boards, FAA and/or regulatory agencies required.
  • Experience with Planning and Design Software (AutoCAD, AEDT, ESRI/ArcGIS, or AviPLAN/PathPlanner/AeroTURN) preferred.
  • Effective verbal and written communication skills with the ability to adapt communication style to suit various audiences.
