    Flight Service Alaska

    Ohhh haha great. Maybe next week I'll give Juneau a jingle to get a better idea. I called them back when I applied. Talked to one guy, Maurice?... He seemed pretty nice and informative.

    Flight Service Alaska

    Fantastic, thank you. That's interesting. The way hr made it sound, I would go to Kenai first before going to Juneau. But I'm ots, so I suppose if I went to FSS via atc and the nest, I would sit in Juneau till a class date in kenai. Haha, yeah I'm sure everything won't be completely seamless...

    Flight Service Alaska

    Awesome! Thank you! I figured the seasons would dictate cost and availability. I guess worst case scenario, I'll have to Craigslist/Airbnb it for a decent room to rent. I'm not surprised they left after the academy, they probably got the idea from classmates in OKC. I knew multiple people who...

    Flight Service Alaska

    If anyone still reads this...I got questions. I've been trying to get into ATC, no such luck yet, but I applied to the ots Alaska FSS bid over a year ago, and got an offer a few days ago. I accepted. Duty station is Juneau. I know, Expensive, but that's what they offered me. I'm not in the...

    July 27th 2018 OTS Bid Announcement

    Yeah I would definitely give HR a call. Someone on pointsixtyfive was disqualified, gave HR a call, and got it fixed. It seems like HR is hit or miss, I've called before and have received little help, whereas this person said they were very helpful. So be very nice haha. But yeah I would call...

    July 27th 2018 OTS Bid Announcement

    Still just "received" here. Not too worried about it though. If you've applied (pool1), and made it to the testing portion in previous bids, I don't think this one will be any different.

    RPO Strike 2018

    According to pointsixtyfive, the strike was tabled till September 21st. If I were guessing, I'd say someone in the FAA had a come-to-jesus meeting with CNI.

    RPO Strike 2018

    I know they used to have the students rpo for radar. From what I've heard from instructors that were there during that transition period, was that trainees benefited from it, but there was a lack of quality control, and when there was an odd number of trainees and one didn't get to rpo as much...

    RPO Strike 2018

    IF an RPO gets fired for going on strike and later gets hired by the FAA, by the time the FAA finds out the details the tests will have been taken and selections already made. they wont be un-selected. My perspective is that of mine and my counterparts at other facilities across the country...

    RPO Strike 2018

    I don't see why anyone would put on a resume that they went on strike and got fired lol, but either way...I got canned from an rpo job, at the academy, about a year and a half ago and it didn't affect me at all. KeelowJay90 isn't at work right now...he/she is on stuckmic. for having 15+ years...

    July 27th 2018 OTS Bid Announcement

    The website I get the numbers from is an internal website. As far as what the public knows... Well the bq that normally qualified people in previous bids, just got tossed, due to some scandalous news stories resulting in political pressure. So someone/something(hr) has to further qualify the...
