    AT Basics

    Don't worry about trying to study for basics before hand. It's way too easy. Most people in my class passed with a 90% or better.

    9/21/17 Enroute Basics

    I'm at Isola too. Just ran a speed test and get 46 mbps down and 20mbps up. Main problem I have is that it will drop out for a minute or two around every 90 minutes. Not good for gaming, but you're not here to game anyway. Works fine for Apple TV since those speeds are fast enough to...

    Locating to DFW

    Envoy has it's HQ in the Dallas area as well (Irving). In my mind that is a better fit for what he said... Southwest on the other hand has over 50,000 employees and a fleet of over 700 737s, not so "small or medium" to me. They are also the largest domestic air carrier in the country, so they...

    Pass/Fail Rate?

    Staffing Levels

    I think it's technically a CERAP, but it's on the list of enroute facilities on the FAA's website. https://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ato/service_units/air_traffic_services/artcc/

    Atlanta Center - ZTL

    Thanks for the info. I'll just have to do the best I can at the academy and hope I get lucky with my choices in December.

    Atlanta Center - ZTL

    Well, I'll just be glad to pass the academy and get to go somewhere. If it's gotta be New York or Oakland, so be it. Pretty sure I'd even do Guam if that was my only option.

    Medical Question Regarding Vision

    My file was assigned to the Central Region medical office and I'm in Western Pacific. I think they're just assigning files to whoever has the least workload at the time.

    Atlanta Center - ZTL

    Going to the August 8th enroute class with a projected graduation of December 7th. Assuming all goes well, I'd really like to go to ZTL if it's on the list. How is staffing looking right now?
