    Do you have ATC experience or no? You just missed an open announcement in August. Chances of there being one in 2017 are very slim so you will probably have to wait until early 2018.

    what? They usually have one every year. Up until a couple years ago they had them twice a year.

    I would be surprised if they had an OTS bid in 2017 as well. Think about it, people who just took the ATSA won't be going to the Academy until summer at the earliest. Generally they fill 12-18 months worth of Academy slots with one bid... So that could potentially take you to the end of 2018. They don't need another OTS bid. Certainly not before late 2017 if they do.

    Re: 2015 Hiring Announcement Rumor Mill

    I have two friends in enroute facilities and one friend that is a USAirways pilot and all of them are saying there will be an open bid before june. They tell me they are hurting so bad right now. In fact one the ATC was on vacation and they called him and offered him allot of money if he would come back early from vacation. He said it was the biggest check he has ever seen so if they are doing that there will be an open bid im sure. Also according to my pilot buddy they pulled 3000 ppl from the august bid to take the biographical but they only have room for 1400 in the academy. I hoping they have an open bid in spring like they are saying since i only have 2 years of eligibility left.

    This doesn't make sense. So they pulled 3000 from the August bid but only have room for 1400. Then within half a year turn around and add more people onto a list that can't make it to the academy for a significant amount of time? If they are hurting for people, why won't they just use the 3000 eligible and send them to the academy when space permits? I'm calling bullshit.

    From my understanding they only expect about half of them to pass the biographical giving them the 1400 that they need. May not be true thats just what i was told. Could be BS.if none of yall have heard that then its probably not true. I dont know how everything works so i really have no idea

    So I've been on this site for...something like 8 years now. This has got to be the single greatest "through the grapevine" post ever. It would have been okay, until you added in the friend from USairways......that doesn't exist by name anymore! And what would a pilot know about ATC hiring anyways? I get the two en route friends, who are actually controllers..but dropping a pilot in the discussion! Come on bruh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I say all this with sarcasm blizzard, gotta kick a man when he's down you know?

    Re: 2015 Hiring Announcement Rumor Mill

    Just reading through the FAA's Workforce Plan, they intend to hire a little under 1,800 controllers in both 2017 and 2018. I'm not sure if the group that was accepted from the August '16 bid would be considered 2016 or 2017 hires, but I'm guessing 2017. If that is the case, logic suggests they'll do another bid in August of 2017. At least I hope they do! Looking forward to applying when given the opportunity. Hope everyone is having a good year so far.
