    Re: Albuquerque Center - ZAB

    Umm hello.....starting to think this center doesn't even exist or is the best kept secret of the FAA that no one wants to talk about it. If there is anyone out there; just curious about good areas to live with good schools for the kids and a hospital for the wife to work at. And also; is the info on page one about the training still accurate??

    ^ Dude... calm down. The world ain't going to end if your questions aren't answered in 24 hours.

    Generally, the farther north and east you live from downtown, the better the area if you're trying to minimize commute. Southwest isn't too bad. Southeast is not a good place to be. (North)West side is nice but longer commute. Rio Rancho same way.

    APS isn't a great district in a broad sense but certain schools within are better than others, Rio Rancho schools better.

    Multiple hospitals (like any town of 500,000-ish) Most need staffing badly.

    Accurate info? Basically yes, but no functional training.

    Thanks for the info. What do you mean by no functional training? Does that mean that I should be prepared to pretty much train myself even though I'm assigned a trainer??

    Re: Albuquerque Center - ZAB

    d2dae pm me your email and I'll forward you all the info I've gathered so far. My old trainer in the Air Force grew up there, I have a car buddy that grew up/still living there (gave tons of good info on the city living/eating/things to do/good schools for the kids/where to go where not to go etc etc), and I'm in contact with a controller there (really good insight to life at ZAB).

    This goes for anyone else interested in ZAB and/or Albuquerque living. Just shoot me a pm with your email, I'd rather not post it publicly.

    Functional training was the nickname given to combined D/R School that occurred during the white book years as referenced in the mega comment on the first page. It doesn't happen here anymore.

    Did retired members of NATCA share in the recent settlement with FAA concerning re-class of pay?

    I just talked with a manager out there and he said he will get me picked up. What's it like living out there?
