UNDATED (CNN) -- Looking for a job? Well, the FAA is looking to hire some new air traffic controllers.

According to a recent report, the agency is facing a possible shortage at some of the nation's busiest airports. That's because about a third of senior controllers are up for retirement around the country.

One of the hardest hit airports is Dallas-Fort Worth International in Texas.

There, 65 percent of controllers are now eligible for retirement.

The report shows the FAA is having a hard time finding replacements because trainees are quitting their jobs at high rates.
