    North Las Vegas - VGT

    Our last body to go to las from vgt leaves next week. 3 this year but we got 3 returned from prior years. Two older guys who threatened grievances, just to get the boot in just a little over a year. Las is overstaffed so is vgt. L30 is available only with prior radar. Don't know about Reno but...

    Wash Outs

    There are tons of reasons. I being a ZOA washout believe the training program or lack there of for people especially those OTS. The comment about being in HS is really close to the truth. Good luck to anyone going to a center especially ZOA or any of the crazy busy TRACONS

    Turning Down an Offer (*Gasp!*)

    Sometimes at the academy they will switch you to a different facility when facility reps come to visit. My buddy got out of going to Cleveland and another I know went to LA instead of Indy. Never say no when you're just a name on a list. If you can do the job things usually have a way of working...
