    TOL From August 2016 Bid Post Here.

    Academy pay is like $10/hr. Then something $96ish/day per diem for food and housing. Most of the housing that the FAA recommends is around $50/day.

    Asking for a friend... does anyone know if they're sending out more TOLs from this bid?

    Financial Issues

    I was in your shoes. I didn't even have an "average" score. However, I was current or a month behind, and all was fine. No one ever even questioned it.

    Well, Thanks Republican-voting Controllers!

    Also, I'm not delusional at all. I'm actually a realist that doesn't jump to conclusions and sound like some little school girl running around all emotional. To each their own. I'm buying stock on Kleenex after seeing all the crying on here. They may destroy ATC, they may make us millionaires...

    Lol, we just got one. That was with a (R) house and senate. $150k/year is good with me though. Better than 99.99999% of jobs.

    Pretty sure they wouldn't cut pay. Look into how Nav Canada works. The bill put forth last year was very similar to that.

    Well, Thanks Republican-voting Controllers!

    Also, the amount of wasted money in the FAA from their inefficiency and lack of accountability is pretty alarming. I fir one would at least be infavor of the .gov tightening the reigns and making the agency more efficient.

    Nothing may change, in that case, it could be good, considering the constant worry of privatizing would be gone. Could get more substantial raises. Of course, this may not happen, I just try to be positive. I do know some Nav Canada guys, and they love their system.

    If/when Congress passes the bill, it could take less than a month. At least that's what my rep has said.

    Could be a good thing, could be a bad thing.

    Staying in a Camper at the Academy

    I'm sure people have done it, and passed. Personally, I would say not to do it. Living somewhere like Kim's Place will give you roommates that are in your class and make studying MUCH easier. I doubt I would have made it, if I didn't have people around me constantly studying. I'm assuming this...

    Pretty sure the language says that basically everyone is frozen unless the agency asks for an exemption, which seems like a no brainer, but who knows.
