    NATCA's Response to Media/Investigation Re: Hudson Mid-air

    eh i've only done it once but there's a way you can get traffic advisories from Newark if you up the altitude. It's just advisories and like you said it's all VFR. Oh - and your photo beats mine... by a ton.

    Feel stuck and confused

    Once an announcement is made, you will apply and your application will be reviewed. More than likely you will be eligible and asked to take the AT-SAT - a fun (heh) battery of games/questions that are supposed to determine if you have the specific cognitive skills to become an atc. There is a...

    General PV Discussion

    Re: Wanna talk PV? You determine what level the problem is. In reality, it's a mid 20, you will make it a 32-33. My problem had 5 conflicts, all with easy solutions. You can easily make more work for yourself by trying to do more than you have to. Phone won't ring for the first 5 minutes...

    General PV Discussion

    Re: Wanna talk PV? you walk in. you sit down. your pen shakes for about 30 seconds and then you kill it. next thing you know it's 843 on the clock and the evaluator is asking if you want a break. that's all there is to it. oh, and r-man says don't fuck up.

    Stripmarking Pens....

    I made some mike debb specials using regular bic fine points. Cut off the ends stick em together, viola. They work up in the ERTS lab (hah! something in the ERTS lab working!) as long as you don't touch the strips. A few people use fine point sharpies taped together, but it gets sorta awkward...

    Stupid ERAM...Pt 2

    They're taking instructors away from us at the academy to send them through ERAM training too. It'll be interesting to see what happens when I get back to NY. Between the amount of us going back + ERAM, I wouldn't be suprised if we're in the same boat.

    Let's hear it for the pilots!

    I have about 220hrs in a 150 and 20hrs in a 177RG (including two alternator failures in that a/c and a manual gear pump cause the battery didn't have enough juice to get them locked!). Instrument private rated and ran out of money before my comm checkride. Hopefully once I get things squared...

    Fuel Prices and General Aviation

    I haven't flown in a year because I can't afford to put gas in the damn thing. Soon enough I'll get back to it since prices have gone down, but the past year has sucked.
