    Rocky Mountain Metro Tower-BJC

    Just got picked up off an ERR to this facility. Are there any locals that can give me some information on affordable living areas?

    Hahaha. Yep. went out there for a FAM trip back in August. FANTASTIC view of the Front Range and a great group of controllers there. I report in March. I'm looking forward to it.

    Just curious FL_CTI, in your timeline you say you were denied the two panels in March and October 2011, but you got a TOL in early 2012, what panel was that off of?

    How's the staffing there now? Any expectations of new hires off this prior experience bid?

    Can't speak officially, but I can tell you that we have one retiring in June, two more in the next year or so, and several putting in ERR papers. If you want to be here, it wouldn't hurt to put in now. I can answer any questions you have about the facility.

    No ERR for me, just holding a TOL off the experienced controller new hire bid. What's traffic like? I grew up in the area just south of there so I'm familiar with the area.

    We run about 120k ops a year/ averaging over 300 a day. We have three fixed wing flight schools, one helicopter flight school, and loads of corporate aviation so we have a decent mix of traffic. We run Seminoles, Cessnas, Cherokees, Lance's, etc day in day out. About once or twice a year we'll get a 737, usually to charter CU for some of their road games. The Navy and Marines send in F-18's on a fairly regular basis, and the Air Force Academy sends their SR-22's up for pattern work. We tend to get overlooked though in favor of our bigger siblings to the south at DEN and APA.

    Do you know how big the ERR list is now? I am hoping to be finished with training at my facility in May or June and will definitely be putting in for there, COS, and probably PUB too. My whole family lives in CO and I really want to get out there with them. Thanks

    I do not know, as I do not have access to that information. Sorry.

    FL_CTI, I just put BJC as number one off the list I was offered from the experienced bid last year, hopefully hearing back this week for a FOL and start date... You got a room for rent for a month or two?!?! Won't know for sure until I hear, but seems hopeful. Otherwise any other suggestions for cheap housing until getting qualified?
