    re: 2 Academy Questions

    Oooops. Sorry bout that! lol. I think I have some PTSD from going to RIDDLE for as long as I did. The side effects are very strange, such as "riddle vision" where thinking 2=10, and anything with a name that resembles a female, whether on purpose or not, get's warped by my own mind and I see what I want. And that is usually something of the opposite sex. Like instead of seeing "C11 Indy" I just saw Cindy. Hahaha. We'll that is why i'm so glad I've graduated and am making a steady recovery back into normal existence. Shouldn't be long.

    The sad part about all of this is that even though UND is coed it probably wasn't much different than Riddle. The females in the frozen tundra are not the most appealing to the eyes. Of course there were a few exceptions.....but few indeed. So happy to be back on the east coast. : )

    Ouch. That's kind of mean. As a girl who went to both ERAU and UND I believe I can judge. There are a few men I met at ERAU that I love to death and would do anything for. They are that great of people. I wish I felt that way about the men at UND.

    From the Student Handbook:

    There is a childcare facility, the Launching Pad, located at the Aeronautical
    Center. The facility is open primarily to Center employees but anyone
    wishing to use the facility, if space is available, may do so. The hours
    of operation are 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Launching Pad management
    recommends that students call at least two weeks prior to arriving for training
    to make child care arrangements for their children. There may be a long
    waiting list for space and drop-in slots may or may not be available during
    a given time period. The Launching Pad may be contacted at (405) 954-
    4901. The Launching Pad also has a web site at Mike Monroney Aeronautical
    Center Employee Services.

    It is not free to students.

    Being a VRA who, without any set backs, was "selected" (was told during interview waiting for FOL) for a level 12 facility, what does the above mean? What is ITR, RTF and TSEW?

    ITR - Intro to Radar, an extension of basics with some radar stuff thrown in

    RTF - This is where you learn all the radar stuff and run labs

    TSEW - TRACON Skill Enhancement Workshop, takes the basic RTF airspace and cuts it up into feeders, departures, finals, and satellites...it has evolved since I took it (the first "test group") but its a ton of fun and really gets you thinking more along the lines of a big TRACON

    re: 2 Academy Questions

    I am in the RTF class right now. I was here a year ago for the tower class. The Airport layout is not based off of any specific airport. Also you use the same map for both the Tower and RTF classes. Finally it doesnt matter if you are going to a level 6 up down or a level 12 tracon, everyone is in the same RTF class. The only difference is that lvl 10 and above classes stay an extra 2 weeks for TSEW class. Hope this clears everything up.
