    Corpus Christi - CRP

    People are moving in and out of CRP all the time. I don't know our exact staffing numbers to be considered staffed/understaffed but i know its way more than 31. We're always looking for people. We get both new hires and transfers and they come from all types of facilities.

    Yeah, the Valley sector spans from Armstrong Ranch to the Mexico border. We control MFE, HRL, and BRO down there. Its a pretty huge chunk of air space that has all kinds of fun stuff like bordering Mexico who is non-radar.

    Lets see..as of right now we have 25 CPCs and 9 trainees. Of the trainees, 4 will probably check out in the next few months and the rest are spread out on about every position. We have 3 CPCs with release dates and 5 or so eligible to retire. I think 1 of them is going this year and 2 next year.

    Re: Empty ATC chat. Are we for certain this is in fact the one they call Ammo? Because I'll admit, I got a little scared.

    State x y or z?

    Unless something has changed that I am completely unaware of, your counselor is very misinformed! No wonder so many people come here looking for answers! I dont know exactly when they changed it but sometime last year it went from 5 states down to 2. And there was no place to put a desired...

    State x y or z?

    I stand corrected! Thanks for clearing that up. I was under the impression that there was an option for OTS applicants to essentially say they will take anything available. Whats the point of putting it on the initial application if they don't go by it? I don't think I quite understand!

    State x y or z?

    Or why did they go from allowing 5 states for CTI applicants down to 2. I'm sure there is a reason, but it is something for unsolved mysteries I think!

    State x y or z?

    What doesnt make any cents to me is that OTS applicants get a "throughout the nation" option. Why doesnt every applicant have that option?
