    Any Proposed Annual Pay Increases?

    New to the FAA, and I know the FY2016 starts in October. FCT's generally see their inflation adjusted for COL in November, does the FAA do anything similar? Even if it's just 1%, and if so, when does it go into effect?

    If a Woman Gets Pregnant As a Contract Controller...?

    So I was having this discussion with a coworker. I thought that the Contract Towers had a special set of rules that employees had to adhere to. While I was employed at a FCT I was under the impression if I'm ever out of the job for illness or something, I have to be back to work before all my...

    DUI Med DQ Appeal, Help

    I had a similar ordeal. I had a DROPPED reckless driving charge. There is no record of it. Somehow they caught wind of it and thought it was a DUI that was reduced to Reckless Driving, it almost jeapoardized everything, they wanted to send me to a Pyschiatrist, and it was holding up the Class II...

    Facility Placement and Start Date

    El Paso was one of my choices, I REALLY did not want it. Everything I know about west Texas repulses me. Arid, desolate, border town, remote location, higher crime rate. At least it's an FAA position, that much helps things, but I think I rated El Paso as last or second to last.

I'm already starting to make arrangements, like getting ready to break my lease, still haven't handed in my resignation notice at my job, because I don't want to do anything officially until I receive my FOL, that would...

    Facility Placement and Start Date

    Yeah, well I wish I would have been direct hire to FAA one month out of my military service instead of going to a contract tower sometimes, it's just another move I'll have to make. Great filler job though. I'm glad I did my 5 years in the military though, I received free LASIK eye surgery at...

    Facility Placement and Start Date

    Maybe, but that's a lot of job transfers and moving. I'm sure he's happy with his FAA offer now, but most people prefer to go straight from the military to the FAA, not all the hoops in between.

    June 15th is the day it was due. I was counting on it not being a favored area for many people, I'm sure that helped me get it since I was likely one of the few people who ranked it as their number one choice.
