    I am from the huntington area and thought about going there but at the time the staffing was full...this was a little over a year ago so it may be different now. It is a very slow level 6 up/down(maybe 100 ops/day on a busy day). i think it would be a good starting point but it seems it would get boring after awhile.

    I agree that only a 100 ops per day would be extremely boring, we average over 400 per day and I think it's slow. Granted to learn the basics a level 6 is a good start but you don't have the traffic to truly learn how to sequence and work aircraft of varying airspeeds.

    In my perfect world, i am trying to set my self up for success where as i start at a 6-7 go to 9-10 then 11-12, like how they used to do it in the old days, not just throw people in level 12's. I can see the problem of full staffing levels at these airports because they are so small but ideally i would want to start lower end higher...

    I agree that starting at a smaller facility and then moving up is the way to go but like mikeatc said, at a place like HTS you won't see much complexity or busy traffic flow to get you really prepared for a busier facility if that is your plan. I just started at a busy level 7 tower so I think I will learn a lot for when and if I do decide to move up.

    Nice job. I don't think CKB is 24/7 though.

    No it's not, but that's what I liked about it. I have a wife and two young kids. I wanted a facility that was manageable without disrupting family life too much. I'll try to transfer to a larger facility for my big 3 when the kids get older. That's the plan anyway.
