    Best path to ATC?

    I didnt do the Active duty route. I went guard, Air National Guard to be exact, you're guaranteed Air Traffic Control if you go guard, but you're not guaranteed a full time job........ its a toss up. Personally I'd do guard again, it works well. BUT I believe you can guarantee Air Traffic with...

    Less Than 52 Weeks Experience

    Amen, but, I did get picked up for the General bid last year, so im currently in the process of doing the drug screening, mmpi, physical, etc. Great part about it is, if I make it through on this bid (52 week experience one) then I can use all the tests from the general one and still do direct...

    Less Than 52 Weeks Experience

    Not to toot my own horn or anything..... But im 99% positive im the reason for the whole 24 hours per traditional guard weekend. To get back on topic, 52 weeks is arguable and it shouldnt be worded as that because they arent actually looking for 52 weeks. They're looking for 2080 hours of Air...

    PRIOR EXPERIENCE 2152 FAA-ATO-16-ATC-EXP-44955 BID IS OUT 21 December 2015

    Unless they recently changed the rule about this.... Plenty of OKC grads were going to 9's, 10's etc..... the open bid was more of a "oh heres what we need filled, and you go" the experienced bid seemed more like a "oh we wanna fill all the low levels to push those people up" sort of deal. Could...

    Incorrect. I dont know where you went to school or what you did before, but i know my military training had me reading straight from it and comprehending it how we thought. If we didnt understand then we would ask questions. If you have questions about something you read you can post here and...

    July 2016 PTOL'S

    For whoever was looking for some study material for OKC. I'd presonally suggest reading through parts of the JO 7110.65 Why? Because this is the book of rules, you'll find your standard separation rules there, your wake turbulence rules there etc. Many things that will be nice to not have to...

    July 2016 PTOL'S

    oh hi. This is the open public bid. Im glad you've found out that the majority of people who have applied honestly have no idea what Air Traffic entails. Just that its extremely stressful, and extremely well paying.

    Just a mere observation here, but im going to assume that you've never worked Air Traffic? I'm also going to assume that you havent had many run-ins with controllers and their personality. All I will say is if you make it to your facility you dont try and flaunt your knowledge around. It wont...

    Reffered Status?

    They haven't done interviews for awhile. I'd place a safe guess of TOL in...... 4 months? Just a guess. No one knows.

    Based off the account you applied on? Thr reason he stated that was because the bioq last year was so messed up the they offered anyone who aged out in the past year an age waiver. It was sent in an email I believe.

    Reffered Status?

    Until you are actually in OKC you are NEVER guaranteed a spot. Take this to heart.

    traditionally.... ZLA. Puerto Rico, Miami, Oakland, and a few other centers are almost always in need of people. I will be surprised if they dont give enroute to prior mil/experience guys vs cti/pub. But who knows, crazier shit has happened.

    Depends... At the academy for terminal school. No. For enroute: Yes. What people aren't accounting for is the people washing out once they get to the actual difficult part.... At the facility.
