    Tower CPC to Center?

    So just out of curiosity... What happens to somebody that makes CPC at an FAA tower then transfers to a center only to fail out of the training? Does the FAA keep you employed and send you back to a different tower or are they allowed to fire you at that point? PS. Just for the record I'm not...

    FEGLI Coverage Question

    Hey everybody. I've tried searching through the OPM's information briefly but not very thoroughly then decided I'd just ask on here to see if anyone can more quickly reference it for me than me blindly searching. Is a death due to a motorcycle accident or airplane accident covered or do there...

    Hey folks. Anybody planning to go to the Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Bullet for my Valentine show this Friday at the Zoo Amphitheater? I really want to go but it sucks going alone. I'll probably go anyway but just curious if anybody else from the Academy was going.

    SRS/Wake Turbulence Separation Help

    Hey guys. Does anybody know of any forms or tables that help with same runway and wake turbulence separation memorization. Looking through the 7110 and the Academy handbook is very meticulous. When we briefly went over this in school my teacher had a presentation that made it look easier to...

    Government Shutdown Effects

    Back when I was verbally given my class date for April 20 (have since received my FOL) I asked how the current budget situation may affect my class date and my HR rep said "I wouldn't worry about it." I didn't specify that I meant what a government shutdown would do to my class date but about...

    Question about FERS

    I'm guessing this will be discussed at the Academy but I'm kind of curious about it. When looking through all of the paperwork I have to do on EODS and reading about benefits I'm a bit confused. FERS is mentioned but really only when referring to the TSP matching. Is the FERS program I'm brought...

    Bad Hiring News

    Here is the response I got from my HR rep today after emailing him asking him when I should expect to get my FOL: "We are waiting on the air traffic organization to give us the go-ahead to extend the firm offer letters. As soon as that happens I'll have yours out to you. In the mean time, in...

    Moving Expenses

    For anybody that has gone through the process of reimbursement of moving expenses to/from the academy I am curious of your opinion on if you think they will pay to ship a motorcycle or not...? If this sounds like a dumb question no need to bash. I just have no idea. Thanks!

    Security Clearance Contact

    Hey everybody. I'm super frustrated. People I know are already getting class dates and my security clearance references haven't even been contacted. I want to know if anybody has a number I can call to see where my clearance is getting hung up or if they even received my info. Thanks in advance!

    Selected 2010 & Referred New States 2011

    I was selected last fall and this year I figured I'd still get my name back in CTI again just in case and picked my home state (again like last year) and a new state besides the one I was selected for last year. Last year my home state didn't have a referral list, this year they do. Now I...

    TOL w/facility name vs. w/o facility name

    Does anybody know what the difference is between those of us that received the three letter identifier as part of the filename for our TOLs and those that only know the state without any indication of which facility? Is it just that some HR reps want to tell give you a hint without making it...

    Hello. Is anybody else having problems sending private messages the last couple days? I've tried using multiple browsers and it doesn't work through any of them.

    Still Not Scheduled Interview...?

    Hey. Has anybody else out there still not heard from their interviewing facility about setting up a time? I don't want to call and bug them just yet so I just wanted to see how many others were in the same boat. I am selected in California and supposed to be interviewing at MIC (Crystal, MN).

    Facilities with best odds...

    So I figured I better start figuring this out sooner rather than later so I don't have to rush it when the deadline gets near. It is my understanding that after the AT-SAT the next phase is getting your geo-pref email. I am trying to figure out what facilities would give me the best odds of...

    Scheduling/Seniority, etc.

    I toured ZMP probably about 3 or 4 months ago before I was truly considering going the ATC route and asked a general question about how they're scheduled and the way she made it sound is that ATCers work 5 day/40 hour weeks and that they are rotating shifts (it that's the correct term for a...
