    EnRoute Graduate Placement OTS Bid

    Knowing what's currently on the list will only even remotely give you an idea if you're expecting to graduate within a month or two, before that and there are too many variables to consider to come up with a decent idea of what will be available. This list changes on a regular basis, and the...

    EnRoute Graduate Placement OTS Bid

    Ibreezeby is correct. I just went through the process of volunteering for Alaska a couple of weeks ago while here at the academy. How it worked for a couple of us, and I'm assuming how it will generally work for others, is we let our instructors at enroute basics (so this is after you wrap...

    Volunteer Facilities?

    Not too bad. A lot more study time is required than I've ever had to do in my entire life, but I'm hanging in there.

    Volunteer Facilities?

    Supposedly your request will be approved or denied before the list is given to the class. If you volunteer for one of the positions on the list, and it gets approved, you will not have the opportunity to choose from the list like the class does, and their available list will only include as many...

    Volunteer Facilities?

    I am currently at the academy, and spoke directly with the guy in charge of assignments a few days ago. He showed me the list of facilities for enroute graduates, as well as the facilities on the volunteer sheet. The volunteer sheet included Alaska, Puerto Rico, Guam, and Hawaii; However, he...

    11/13/15 En Route Basics

    Nope, Kim said that her computer assigns the rooms (don't know 100% what that means) and when you show up they let you know which room you're in, and no room switching btw. Our last roommate to arrive was the one who had the master bedroom. Although, at least the other two bedrooms get to have...

    11/04/2015 Enroute Basics

    I'm not sure how all classes do it, but we have a small box at the front of the room that everyone puts their phones into (it's about 50/50 if people turn them off or just put them on silent mode). The policy of no electronics specifically states that smart watches aren't allowed either, however...

    10/05/2015 Basic

    I think I'm going to just stick with Kim's. I've heard nothing but good things, and IB has had mixed reviews. Kim has also already found two roommates in the same class, and I think 2 roommates might be better for me for studying purposes than just a single roommate. Have you considered Kim's as...

    10/6/15 Enroute Basics

    I accidentally posted on the October 5th page, but my class starts on the 6th. I called Kim's place and will likely be staying there as she said that there are at least two other people with the same class date that I could share a place with.

    10/05/2015 Basic

    Edit* I guess I posted for the wrong date. Headed to the Oct 6 class, but told to be in town on the 5th.

    2015 ATSAT Results

    My doctor was in a Corvallis, Oregon, with the next closest doctor in Vancouver, Washington. For anyone asking about doctor Clayton, I got ahold of him on my second call attempt by calling first thing in the morning. It was maybe 7:05 or 8:05 Pacific Time (when I figured his phone wasn't yet...

    2015 ATSAT Results

    Pretty much exactly what I've been told too. PTOL received 8/14/15 with all pre-employment docs the same day. Submitted everything as quickly as I could, but the Medical wasn't done until 9/11 as that was the earliest appointment available for the only doc in my state. Spoke with FAA HR on...

    2015 OTS TOL/FOL

    Unless you have something specific in the records that you think the doc would want to see, I wouldn't bring them. My doctor didn't want to see anything but my photo ID.
