    Surveilance Approach

    I misspelled Giants as in the NFL team. Turn left on course, local sports score is.... just so long as its every 10 seconds. Obviously during an ASR/PAR your critical instrument is the radio and as radios don't have indications that they're broken aside from silence, hence the 10 second...

    Surveilance Approach

    As should have been explained if no communication in 10 seconds execute the missed. On course/left of course/the Guants scored a field goal serves this purpose. Half standard rate is common on final no gyros. Makes the slight corrections easier. 2 miles off is horrendous. Like I'd be fucking...

    Delay Vectors?

    Request away and do so as early on as you can. I do it often enough to not call it rare. Usually for me it's when the crew loaded too much fuel and are too heavy to land.

    2nd Chances

    I know you didn't mean it this way, but the wording has had me playing scenarios in my head as if prior experience was necessary. Kid goes to a recruiters office. "Hmmmm 3 years of varsity infantry, platoon commander in your high school's tank club, summer internship at the DFAC. Good resume...

    CTO Schools?

    Just to clarify, CCBC is CTI school that offers CTOs to it's terminal option students. Things may have changed, but when i went through it wasn't a big program. Maybe 16 slots for terminal and 16 for enroute. Banking on a CTO from there is a huge gamble. Even then the only people from there i...

    Well, Thanks Republican-voting Controllers!

    Soooo did you pass the Bio Q? Just looking to measure your expertise. Also what was your personal experience with the white book? Inquiring minds

    Well, Thanks Republican-voting Controllers!

    Youre technically correct provided you never transferred and were cpc on labor day 2006. I tend to view years of pay freezes contrary to an immoraly circumvented contract as pay cuts though even if they don't fit the black and white definition.

    Well, Thanks Republican-voting Controllers!

    This indicates to me you have no clue how the white book impacted controllers and how the pay scales were implimented. Please, counsel me more on something I was present for and you are woefully ignorant about. Hint. It impacted probably 99.9% of the workforce or more

    Well, Thanks Republican-voting Controllers!

    Reading comprehension fail there. Where did I say pay cut?

    Well, Thanks Republican-voting Controllers!

    Let's see. The last Republican president cut our pay scales by 30%. This continued for 3 years until a Democrat took office. It happened 10 years ago. Were you actually a controller you might still have that mess fresh in the back of your mind. Good luck in the academy, hopefully the...
