    St Martin

    I'm sure you've all seen the videos, but I just got back from a cruise that stopped in St Martin. I of course had to stop and check out the airport for myself. It is in fact as crazy as it appears. Of course I took my own video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiKU7GSrug0&feature=youtu.be

    Training Failures

    This is from the new contract that is being negoiated currently. It seems as though they FAA intends to hold onto trainees longer even if they are less than succesful. Good news for those of us who are being thrown into the fire at Level 12 facilities with no ATC background. My thought is...

    Medical Record to PEPC?

    This is a question for anyone who has already attended a PEPC. I've got some medical records I want to take with me to the Chicago PEPC next month. I'm wondering if I have to take them in person, or if they have to be faxed? If I pick up my medical records in person there is some ridiculous...

    Number of OTS Applicants?

    I was just curious about this...has the FAA ever published any official numbers on how many Pubnat applicants they've had? Is it thousands...tens of thousands? Anyone have any ideas. I only heard about it because I have a friend who is an air traffic controller, so he told me to give it a...
