    Any one apply to Air Service Austraila

    "tiredofwaiting" is spot on, Aussies love Americans, and every friend I know who has gone there has either ended up in a LTR or marriage to an Aussie. As for me, I thought about going Down Under and have looked into the process, which was pretty much straight forward, especially given I am...

    Comparison of BQ Answers

    Hello All, and I say this as a working GS-2152, who is past the age for the FAA and is not competing for a slot, so I have nothing to gain or lose by posting this, but seriously, you should watch what you say, post and admit to on this site, as there are FAA HR people that monitor this site, and...

    Looking for Some Clarification About DoD Hiring..

    There are very few radar only facilities in DoD, with the majority of openings tower and GCA, and/or Approach. If you don't get out until 2015, I would suggest, if able, to do whatever it takes to get a CTO before you get out. Keep in mind that without a CTO, contract towers won't give you the...

    MCAS Iwakumi TME

    Traffic at Iwakuni is varied and challenging, as well as steadily increasing in volume and complexity.
