    RMC or DoD?

    Not sure how old you are now, but if you are 46 now, then that may be right. If not, here is the bad thing about RMC. The position is only for a 5 year time period and the FAA can pick you up for another 5 years if they choose to. It also says that in the TOL, the FAA can get rid of you at...

    RMC program dead?

    Actually, it is in the regulations that RMC controllers don't have to go to the academy. It is entirely up to your ATM if you go to the academy or not. VRA don't have that option. I am not sure why that is but it is in the regulations. It has always been in there but a lot of facilities...

    Interviews

    They technically don't know either. They are just giving names and told to interview them. You are supposed to find out your location upon receiving your FOL. Did my interview on Wednesday last week, got my TOL two days later. Working on the e-Qip (security clearance) and got my medical...

    Got DUI in between TOL and FOL

    Originally Posted by ThunderUpOKC Haha, no I'm not, but I think I've figured out why the FAA has no logic. Because they preference ex military. Who goes to the military? The people who can't hack it to make it to a college or university to make it to the private sector. I mean, think back to...

    Sep-Oct 2012

    It came from a reliable source. Cant give that person up. As for the time frame, that came from the forum here. If you go back and count the time, the second to last week of October until the Monday after Thanksgiving gives you four weeks. The first week of December makes six weeks, thats...
