    Proceed, Taxi, or Cross.

    Coordination coordination coordination. Coming from an extremely busy DOD facility and now being a civilian controller, FAA controllers are terrible with coordination. Switching the guy to a busy local controller is terribly inefficient for the local controller to be worrying about giving a guy...

    There is zero point for the guy to switch to local in this scenario however.

    Visual Approach

    Yes but as you stated a cva has some instrument guidance that they follow and isnt a true visual approach. CVAs and VAs are different. A true visual approach the pilot decides when to turn base final etc at his discretion, headings and altitude above the MVA. Now if he deviates too much...

    Proceed, Taxi, or Cross.

    See now you are adding information. I think proceed onto 17C turn right at charlie or "back taxi runway 35L turn right at charlie would be the .65 technical way." No need to have them read back hold short of 17R as long as the pilot read back on the initial taxi call the runway departing/taxing...

    Public Trust Clearance Renewel

    I wasnt really sure where to ask this as it's really not an employment question but move accordingly if needed. I asked in another forum but it didnt get much traction so figured I would ask here for hopefully more responses. Due to public trusts now being reinvestigated in 5 yearish windows...

    Public Trust Reinvestigation

    Thanks we are working with one but they all recommend the same thing. The only way to get the timeshare company to even talk about cancelling is strategic default with most resulting in deeds in lieu of. Essientially cancelling the debt for the deed back to avoid going through a costly foreclosure.

    Public Trust Reinvestigation

    It was signed a long time ago. They just fully implemented it in 2018. I dont think it's a guarantee you get it every 5 years on the dot but a few people at my facility has already had to renew theirs.

    Serco

    I was wondering does Serco pay out 256 money each month? RVA does once a month which adds $4.56 extra an hour on top of the base rate of $36.04. Considering that's a NATCA tower but I wasnt sure how the contract worked with serco.

    Kona, Hawaii

    It's now Midwest and pay is around 35-38/hr after COLA is added. Unsure about the work but I do know you will have to move yourself as Midwest will not cover reclocation.
