I graduated the academy in 2011, all the " gretzkys" of the academy were mostly douches. i was probably 4th in the clas hand have been certified at a 8..11.. and 12 on that period of time. hes probably still sitting w a thumb up his ass at a level 7. its all relevant.
Has anyone heard stories of the facility they presently work at being " what is used to be ". My favorite is watching those same controllers going down the shitter after all the stories about how busy we "used to be "
Just cause hes the NATCA rep doesnt automatically mean he or she will give you the time of day. To be honest, i've had more succes going through management for tours. Plus they are the ones who hire you.
