    landing clearance with a vehicle on the runway

    i was once told by a senior controller that a landing clearance could not be issued when a vehicle is on the runway for an inspection. It was explained that the 7110.65 does not imply the use of anticipated separation with vehicles.... I did not look into this as i usually do and just practiced...

    Mediation on faa-natca contract dispute begins

    I must concur with NYCdude...it sucks knowing that I am at a level 12 facility working and studying my ass off to make it and others are walking into level 7 facilities and breezing through the training- yet we are making the same $$. Oh well...like I said I just need to get to D1.

    APREQ VS Point-Out

    I have asked other senior controllers, looked it up in the regs and even googled it. I saw one response over on atcmonitor.com, but I figured I would ask here and see what comments come up. To my understanding, a Point-Out is when you are transferring radar identification of an ACFT and are...

    Nicknames!!

    My nick was Mist(y) since my initials were BR. For those not familiar, BR is the abbreviation used for mist in weather reports. BR wasn’t available here at my new facility, so I guess I will need a new nick =/

    Anyone interested in CID?

    It all just depends. During my PEPC I declined Oakland Tower. I thought they were escorting me out the door, but then she had me wait in a room with one other guy. We waited about 30 minutes then she came in and gave us both SOCAL approcah. Both of us wanted San Diego area, of course a tower...

    Anyone interested in CID?

    .Another rumor to add to the mill: I have heard of someone going to the PEPC, accepting the offer and going through with the medical/security process, then calling or writing the next day to say they didn’t want that location- and they ended up getting a new offer. I do not remember if this...
