    Portland TRACON/Daytona Beach Tower with RADAR/Jacksonville Tower with RADAR

    DAB is a VFR Cluster with RDDL guys, JAX. Jax is a special sort of chaos. (Currently at Jax and out the door on this same nest) The tower here isnt bad, hardest part about JAX tower is getting the traffic to get certified. RADAR here is no joke. It is two approach controls in one fac, JAX area...

    From past ones I have seen leave here, they left a week or two after selection, however, They only had one choice because they either took themselves out of training or married and they nested together and had to find a spot who could take two. I hear its about 2-4 weeks to be told where you're...

    Right on my list it specifically reads "if CPC wash out and your fac is under 100% staffed, you have return rights. Your old fac may not be shown in the list provided" plus it's also in the nest sop for CPC it wash.

    Nah, im not worried about it. Any of my top 3 is ok. Besides, PSP and AFW were very hard to rank, could have gone either way. Hard to fight for one or the other.

    Finally got a hold of the latest placement list. Looks like AFW (My number one pic) was already filled from the last nest and no other slot (like Islip had two for nest) so I think I am going back home to California unless something crazy happens.

    Yeah, that was me. What is it with the FAA and sending me to not so desirable locations? hahaha It is what it is and we will make the best of it and also move back up in the world. Your new plan DFW, D10 or some other grand plan?

    Hey Nick, long time no chat. (Met you at Kims Place 2014 when you were going to N90) Yeah, I talked to AFW Fac Rep for 45 minutes about that fac, seems like a really awesome place to end up with some nice and diverse traffic. Im from San Diego so Southern California wouldnt be too bad, not as...

    Oh no... what did they give you? I requested New England area and got 4 back home in San Diego, One Texas and one on Long Island. Looks like I have a 5 in 6 chance of going back west at least.

    As I said, a week ago I got a hold of the region President as my union rep transferred to TPA. Five minutes later he told me I was being retained at a 6 or below and pending the DO's sig. He also said that person is his counter part for the region (as nest final signing authority tends to...

    Yeah man I will. South East NATCA emailed me this morning, says selections should be next week and it looks pretty good for me getting my number 1 pick. Just nothing is solid until it's in writing. But hey, at least I have an idea of where to start planning a move.

    I wanted to hear it asap after nest made their choice personally. Again, natca can find out for you real quick. Who knows. Maybe they're still generating other lists or different priority levels. Idk.

    We're you told you're being retained? NATCA can find out very quickly. My union rep went to TPA so I contacted the South Eastern VP for the region. He got back to me in 5 minutes telling me I'm being retained at a 6 or below tower. He got that info 24 hours after nest happened.

    Livermore is number 5 of 6 on my list. It still shows as a 6 and my understanding is that if I sign the fol with them being a 6, I have 2 years to cert to keep level 6 pay. Not too worried about that.
