    Starting En Route This Week? I Have Hand-Me-Down Stuff!

    No idea. We eval next Thur/Fri and I'm not gonna get my hopes up. The lists have been a CF lately with the pass rates being about 50% consistently, and a number of fac's going on training holds. So we will know better after the class that finished today places on Monday then we should have our...

    Starting En Route This Week? I Have Hand-Me-Down Stuff!

    I have some stuff I can pass down to anyone starting en route this coming week (3/26 - 3/30). I'm staying at Anatole and if you live here that'd be easiest but otherwise I can also meet up and hand off some stuff wherever. Let me know! First come first served!

    I Was Given En Route As My Specialty. How is That Chosen?

    Yeah, beats me then. They definitely told us 5:1.

    I Was Given En Route As My Specialty. How is That Chosen?

    That answers that then, my 5:1 was referencing 2015 and possibly 2014 as well.

    I Was Given En Route As My Specialty. How is That Chosen?

    It might be that now? When we got here in November, on the first day of indoc they told us it was a 5:1 from our selection process...

    I Was Given En Route As My Specialty. How is That Chosen?

    About a 5:1 ratio of en route to terminal. It is "random" but who knows, maybe there is some sort of selection pending how you scored on certain parts of the hiring process, who knows!? No one ever will know unless we get Wiki Leaks in on this whole process lol So, long story short through the...

    03/08/17 Enroute Basics

    Well, you get that much total. If the place you stay at uses the full housing allotment, then the easiest way is to sign up for CBA which the housing company will charge/the FAA will pay them directly. When you go in to request your per diem you will just get your meal per diem for the month...

    03/08/17 Enroute Basics

    That's total, including your meals and incidentals. Housing per diem is technically only like $58 something. Is anyone staying at Anatole? I don't really know of any of my previous CTI friends that will be here this month so I have a bunch of en route stuff I could pass down to whoever.

    Anchorage Center - ZAN

    Before you eval, you can opt to pick ZAN. They will add it to the list, however, if I'm not mistaken, depending on how many in your class actually pass and where you rank as well, and there are other mandatory places on the list then you'd have to go to a mandatory if you do not get to pick one...

    Recent Facility Offers

    ZLC isn't on the list any time soon. Same with ZDV or ZJX. ZBQ is on there a bit, and they have a real good training program and pass rate. They don't let anyone go right to a TRACON right out of the academy, it's level 7 or lower, usually more likely a 5 or 6 in the middle of nowhere.

    Jax

    Is this the most recent placement list? What else is on there, out of curiosity. PIE is nice, I'm from that area (SRQ to be exact).

    What's the Weather Like?

    What do you drive? And they just don't maintain them. There are just cracks and holes everywhere. There are some okay parts here and there but even still, they're just garbage.

    What's the Weather Like?

    Forgot to add, the roads here suck a big floppy one. So if you're at all lowered, start planning on driving like you're drunk all the time to avoid all the holes and just plain shitty roads.

    Advice for Terminal Students?

    On the plus side though, stick it out and you'll CPC within a year probably and can start putting in to transfer somewhere else, compared to en route guys who will tentatively have to ride out 3-5 years to certify and start requesting to transfer if they want.

    Advice for Terminal Students?

    Hard to say but don't expect any tower above a level 7. I'm not terminal but last list I heard had places from like St. Thomas to Bismark, ND. You'll more than likely get some little Level 5 in the middle of nowhere.

    What's the Weather Like?

    I approve of this thread. Good VW guys, too bad I won't be here when you're here. But I have a 2010 Wolfsburg Jetta (almost a GLI clone, OEM+ goodies). Those cars look awesome! But yes, depending on when you're coming, you could be in for some interesting weather. I've been up here for most of...
