    Des Moines, Iowa - KDSM

    Redirected from ZMA to KDSM. Iowa is completely foreign to me, so if anyone works there or has any useful information about the facility/area I would appreciate the input. Thanks in advance!

    born in des moines and spent half my child hood there. great city. low crime most amenities of a large metro area. the nicer areas will be around the new jordan creek mall. urbandale, clive,west desmoines are your best bets. that will keep your commute around 20 minutes to get to the airport. ankeny is alittle farther north but still not a bad commute and a nice area as well.
    as far as the tower goes, its a level 7 up/down. from those i have known that have spent time there, its a great place to start. good luck

    I live in the does Moines area. OKC denied my transfer request from MLI. Low cost of living, and the tower has some great technology for a smaller airport.

    I gotta disagree. Went to Iowa State in Ames (30 miles north of Des Moines). I hated it there. They think they're a real city... But they're not.

    ames is a bit different from des moines. this guy asked about des moines not ames. but im sure he will go to ames at some point, that hickory park is worth the drive. and im guessing that des moines is a real city. according to Best Places to Live in Des Moines Metro Area, Iowa they have over 500k in the metro area. sounds like a wannabe city to me. you dont like it thats fine. but im not sure what kind of cred a place has to have to be a real city. lol. maybe the crime is too low. id be upset about that too...
