    Climbing the Ladder?

    All I can say to that guys is wow. I mean that in a "wow that's garbage" sense. I'm not a sup I just simply come from military background and from what I've seen there's a lot of people that are good and bad sups. Both good and bad controllers. Most seem to do it for career advancement or...

    Climbing the Ladder?

    5 years is recent in the FAA? And curious, what does "gotta love Em" in reference to prior military mean?

    Climbing the Ladder?

    I get kick out of that "good controllers don't become supervisors" garbage. If you get into the agency you'd be coming in at a time where you may never see a "normal schedule" your entire career. Some people like working towards something or career advancement. I'm a controller and have been...

    2152 BID IS OUT.... EXPERIENCED CONTROLLERS

    Pink card doesn't have the dates or ratings on it. To answer your question though yes. Also I'm in the agency I'm asking for a couple old military buddies. Pink cards weren't kept up to date so to speak. I just looked at mine and I don't have a single qual on it and I had two CTOs when I...

    Writing Your Congressmen

    nothig is wrong with being a tower flower. I have 4 facilities under my belt and 3 were tower only. My point was only that your experience didn't seem to back a blanket statement about preferring OTS and the comment about carrying over crap from the military. A lot of applicants so of course...

    Writing Your Congressmen

    Youre in the agency and this is your attitude? Three facility ratings and one radar ticket? So you're a tower flower? The way you and I got in is completely and absurdly different than what went on this past week. And who are you to say people would rather train OTS? In my time in the...
