    Whos Going To ZNY

    Don't go crazy waiting... Its the FAA and you need to realize that its gonna happen. For those worrying about the numbers dont go crazy either, the number is what they hope to get based on class availability at OKC.

    New York Center - ZNY

    Let me say this folks...... Don't start talking shit especially based off the medias report of things. What the media reported is nowhere near what actually happened and I have seen the live playback of the real tapes. The report that this "whistleblower" made and that incident have nothing to...

    Request a redirect before OKC?

    If it is considered a promotion, a pay raise, or higher level position they MUST release you within a reasonable period of time. If it is a downgrade or equal position they do not necessarily have to release you within that reasonable period if at all.

    B757-200...Heavy or Not?

    Just finished a course up at ZNY and was reminded ICAO considers all 757 as heavy for filing purposes...... but NAS/FAA consider 753 and higher as heavy.... who knows anymore... but I believe NATCA does suggest you seperate all as heavy.....

    EnRoute PV Discussion

    Re: PV Not a problem...... oh and one other thing.... When you have your "debrief" on PV day, DO NOT supply ammunition against yourself. When asked how you did say "fine" so the evaluator doesn't ask why you think that and realizes he missed a few things. Always give a good but short...
