    Reasons why you shouldn't live at Isola Bella!

    I hear ya. But the opposite is also true. Some kids parents are commercial pilots, some are controllers, and some are rich. In the OP's case, this might be true.

    Anyone going to CFS 2013 in Vegas?

    Oh, Mr. Kettle, what will we do with you? I bet Hoosier is just some non-hire trying to fire everyone up. He/She has mentioned the "cheetos" thing a couple of times now. I'm sure he/she is some kid (maybe high schooler) that is from the midwest (or where ever else they have basements) who is...

    FAA Sequestration scheduled for March 1: What it is and how it affects you

    Sequestration As previously reported the non-discretionary, mandated government-wide cuts known as sequestration are set to take effect on March 1st if there is not another agreement in place on the mandated debt reduction of $85 billion. The FAA will be forced to cut $483 million – 5% - from...

    Anyone going to CFS 2013 in Vegas?

    Years of experience does not qualify someone as a skilled controller. I know a few that are beyond their better years. I also know many that knew they were "slipping", so they retired. I also know those that were forced out at 56 and everyone sighed with relief. I don't doubt your...

    Two-part radio calls or all in one?

    For me: Working ground, regardless of how busy I am, tell me everything. You're already tying up the frequency by keying up, might as well get it all out so we don't have to play 20 questions. Sometimes I may miss something and have to ask you anyway, but normally I'll catch it all. If...

    Reasons why you shouldn't live at Isola Bella!

    ATC divas.... Maybe. Living where I live, I've become accustomed to a certain style of living. This is me speaking as a controller. Who knows what others lived like before controlling. All I know is that, so far, anything outside of how I live, has been substandard. I'm used to maid...

    Notes from a chat with the ATM of ZSE

    Maybe she is building herself up to be this sort of "super" hiring official to garner more love/respect/attention?

    Call signs in a read back—when and how?

    It doesn't matter where you state your callsign. You could put it in the middle of your transmission. As long as it contains your last 3 digits, I consider it accurate (even if you don't use "type" or "november"). If your flying a C172, and your callsign is N12345, you could use the following...

    Notes from a chat with the ATM of ZSE

    We're not talking law. It's not the same argument. I disagree with making your arguments based off of people that have already "learned the airspace." Should those that graduate successfully from ERAU, who learned MCO, bypass the Academy altogether and go to MCO? Should one who learns A80...

    Notes from a chat with the ATM of ZSE

    So, let's say a controller took 2-4 years at Vaughn to graduate with a great ATSAT score, but a controller at UND took 6 years to graduate because they had a difficult time learning the airspace. You're telling me they should pick up the UND kid first? I disagree. And that's just one issue...

    FAA Sequestration scheduled for March 1: What it is and how it affects you

    Are social programs not on the table at all? Are they only looking at spending cuts from the FAA? My point is that there are "across the board" spending cuts. Each agency/department determines how to make those cuts. Shoot, I say get rid of all level 6 facilities (and below), allow those...

    VFR Climb, IFR Flight Plan, Release?

    Multi Func H, V or Multi Func H, "dot", V hehe.

    VFR Climb, IFR Flight Plan, Release?

    I know. That's my point. All this talk about cancelling IFR flight plans, reporting cancellation, etc. Is all that necessary if you're applying 4-3-9? I just wanted to make sure I was understanding correctly. Seems like it's covered in that section and would apply in the OP's scenario.

    VFR Climb, IFR Flight Plan, Release?

    So how does 4-3-9 apply?

    VFR Climb, IFR Flight Plan, Release?

    He is VFR until made IFR again. You treat him as VFR.

    "The [air] FORCE will be with you,always"

    Now that I look back, it flew by. But dang, while I was a 3-level, the days seemed longer and the weekends shorter! haha.
