    Non Exception Negative RVSM Transitioning

    I think the key is that they are transitioning through, not planning to operate in RVSM airspace. In addition safety is one of the key functions of atc. Last time I checked RVSM capability checks fell well below that. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Age Restrictions for Controllers?

    Age Restrictions for Controllers?

    You get a base 1% from the FAA without putting a dime into tsp. Your first 3% are matched dollar for dollar. The next 2% are matched by 1/2. So if you contribute 5% you get a matching 5%. If you give 4% you will get a matching 4.5% and so on. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk

    Switch from Terminal to En Route?

    There are many things that are different at a center vs terminal. The biggest one I always hear from transfers is the keyboard entries. A center controller is constantly putting in keyboard and trackball entries and often typing and talking at the same time. On the plus side we have a regular...
