    Whats the Craziest “how Did That Person Make It Through the Accademy” Academy Story.

    If you make it to the third eval, then they don’t want to see you fail. They know the number you need to graduate. If you demonstrate that you know what you’re doing and don’t completely screw up the problem and have multiple separation errors, then you should be fine. The first two runs are...

    New York Center - ZNY

    The “pit” is a position in TMU that they’re using AGs to staff now. Since it’s going to be awhile before they start stage three, they keep them busy and bump them to D2.

    ORK Norfolk Intl Info

    Not from ORF but I’m from Virginia Beach. Tourist season really only impacts the Oceanfront and the places near it (Virginia Aquarium, Ocean Breeze Water Park, etc.) It gets pretty busy down there from late May through early August. Traffic at the beach can be pretty bad during that time...

    Staffing Levels

    Oakland is loaded up with trainees right now as is New York. It shouldn't be too long before New York shuts the doors for awhile.

    Staffing Levels

    Guam has been showing up as an alternate on the placement list recently. You might not even have to make a specific request to get it. Why Guam?

    Staffing Levels

    If the rumors are true, ZNY should be shutting the doors soon to AG's. Should have already happened with the type of backlog they have right now

    Academy Leave of Abscence

    Just have her come to OKC. That's going to be the easiest and safest option for you.

    Computers for Academy?
