    04/21/2017 Enroute Basics

    I give it up to you for bringing your daughter but I would definitely suggest seeing if parents could help or watch her. There's a lot to learn and lots of get togethers with your class to study. I had left my kiddos with my parents. We did have two people in our class that brought kids and...

    En Route Pass Rate

    Dude I was so nervous going enroute and I was a tover controller for 7 years. It's honestly not that bad as long as you study during the weeks. We studied real hard during the weeks and then partied like no one's business on the weekends. The only ones that failed in my class, you just knew...

    If You Wash Can You Reapply Next Bid?

    If You Wash Can You Reapply Next Bid?

    Think this dude was in a class ahead of me. I was a contract controller before the feds and so was he if I'm not mistaken.

    Anyone Have Copy of ZAE MAP?

    Yeah I completely agree with this. They give you plenty of time to learn it. All of us that made it never looked at the map prior to class. You pretty much look at it and go what the hell is all this stuff. It's nice when they go over every thing in class and then you study it. The whole...

    VFR Go- Around

    Didn't even read what it said but as a previous tower controller, I always want to know if the pilots gonna off set left or right of runway. Helps plan for traffic and where I'm gonna sequence you in. Obviously if your the only plane out there it doesn't matter but I always want to know what...
