[QUOTE=duranme;128715]what the f*ck is this "give way to" shit... damn tower flowers almost as bad as center pukes...[/QUOTEd
Damn i guess someone was never taught the meaning of the word "respect" in their f*cking life....
cleared to land
Anyone who is willing to answer some questions for me will you please message me. I'm getting ready to start ground school and I don't know anyone in ATC. Thanks!
Why did you get a tower?
I thought it was such a joke when MARC became CTI and they said we may get towers. Waste of money.
"Basics" at the Academy is nothing more than the intro classes taught online at MCTC.... So you'll skip that and the tower class will give you everything you need.
Things you must know for tower:
1. How to say "okay" when corrected.
2. How to do whatever your trainer(s) say(s) during every portion of training.
These 2 secrets will help you get through the training program. If you don't do these things, it will make for a long training program.
