    Re: Houston Center - ZHU

    Hey guys. Just posting in here to say that I am among the bunch that got a TOL to ZHU. Waiting on all my stuff to clear so I can get my FOL and class date. Hope to meet you all in the near future!

    Re: Houston Center - ZHU

    I have been trying to call my HR rep all day today because a friend of mine is having issues with his medical clearance after they told him it went through and he was great. Busy signal all day! Now getting on SM I see everyone is having issues with their clearances. Medical and psychological issues. WTF? What's going on? I hope this is all one big logistical problem.

    Re: Houston Center - ZHU

    oh man that would be a great thing if it was just a logistic issue....from what I have seen its about 50% pass/fail. Not good statistics at all.....i just send off my notarized letter today..so now i just wait for them to refer me to a clinical psychologist. hopefully things will work out for you.....

    Thats a really high percentage. From what Im reading there was 5 classes that got pushed back to the 2010 fiscal year. That means we wont get a class date until Dec-Jan time frame. I hope it is logistical so you guys don't get pushed back anymore.

    Re: Houston Center - ZHU

    Congrats! I think us OTS people have a bit longer to wait. Me more than some of you cause I was just in Atlanta last week. Speaking of which, when I was in ATL for the PEPC on Wednesday I met two other people going to ZHU.

    There's quite a lot of us ending up there. Hopefully that means we'll get a class date sooner than others. (wishful thinking I'm sure.)

    Since I'm up in Chicago I'm planning a trip down there next month for a few days to scope out potential apartment complexes and most likely arrange to take a tour while I'm down there.

    Ok, so the wait for some of you guys is really a blessing in disguise. If you start after the first of the new year, your going to make a lot more then you would if you started now. Im sure everyone is excited about the new pay bands. Plus Im sure some of you have jobs now that pay more then you would make at school if you left today.

    Re: Houston Center - ZHU

    Im pretty sure that if I started now my pay grade would go up when the first of the year hit. If it stays the same for the people who are on the current pay grade, well then the FAA is going to have a big problem on their hands.

    I was referring to the fact that you would make almost nothing for the first three months until Jan 1st. And you are correct in saying that they would have a big problem on there hands.

    Re: Houston Center - ZHU

    Hey guys,

    Just another ZHU hopeful here. I was actually PUBNAT 2, applied May of '08. So for those of you who feel like you have been waiting FORVER, try 15 months! I am hoping to hear something soon as well.

    I also have had serious trouble with C.D. returning my emails and stuff. I must have written her 3 or 4 emails over the course of about 2 weeks and got nothing. Tried calling and no answer. Then finally I wrote her an email and in the subject line I wrote "PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS." Sure, a little harsh but I was getting pretty peeved and frustrated at that point. She replied right away, of course with more useless information. Oh well. Hopefully we will hear something by the end of this week!!!

    Re: Houston Center - ZHU

    Ya I just talked to her last week. She is really busy trying to play catch up. I think her assistant has been on leave for the last two weeks. Her phone is off the hook and it's impossible to get ahold of C.S. Hopefully J.M gets back really soon.

    Re: Houston Center - ZHU

    I feel ya man, I am a PUB 3 guy. All my info got mixed up with someone with the same name as me so that pushed my process back. I just now got everything cleared. Heck I wasnt even offered to go to PEPC.

    Knowing that everything is cleared and all I am waiting for is FOL/Date is a nice relief though.

    Re: Houston Center - ZHU

    Guys, Just to give you a heads up. I was talking to C.S two days ago about the paper work I needed for my transfer and she said shes going to have most if not all FOL's out by monday. If you don't get one by monday I would Definitely call her and call her and call her until she answers and ask about it. If anyone gets a Oct 20th date let me know.
