    Are Fidget Spinners Allowed in Class at the Academy?

    The spinners disappeared and it was back to the de facto vacant stares and drooling.

    Are Fidget Spinners Allowed in Class at the Academy?

    All joking aside, my facility got swept up briefly in spinner mania. Half of us, myself included, spent about a week fixated with the stupid things until we realized how retarded we looked.

    Trumps Air Traffic Control Initiative

    I'm on board with most of this too. My issue isn't with NATCA looking to the future; the status quo obviously has to change. It's just not being able to stomach support for a future where protections for workers are hazy at best and gutted at worse. It's a shit state of affairs no matter how we...

    Trumps Air Traffic Control Initiative

    Not to mention it looks terrible from the outside looking in. Whoever's running the account gets in these snarky arguments with concerned union members in the comments. Talk about :p:p:p:p:p:p:p up a unified front. It would be insane to think Schuster and his cronies wouldn't capitalize on this...

    2017 Bids?

    SCCC in New York still offers the CTO option as far as I know. They either recently started or are soon to start keeping students on for 6 months post certification. Before that it wasn't really worth it since contract towers won't take CTOs without time, but now it seems viable. Community...

    Damn, my money was on 'Mericantrol.

    Privatization Battle

    I wish JB Gibson could use his clairvoyant banner towing abilities for a good cause, like finding out what the ATO looks like in 10 years.

    I miss his distinct voice. Really came through in his writing.

    JB, where you at Dawg. StuckMic's getting boring in between bids.

    Potential Government Shut Down Rumors Going Around

    I'll add that while my CTO from *insert low traffic airport here* probably did nothing as far as getting my TOL after 3 years, it almost certainly got me the job I have now. For ANYONE in the same boat (as me at least) who thinks there aren't good paying jobs out there for you, I implore you to...

    Just saw that on the other thread. Good deal. Fingers crossed that the rest of us turn that quick.

    2/24 Patriots Email

    Got an actual HR rep and a reply from Aviation Careers today, after submitting on Feb. 25th and following up 3 times by email. Nearly a month after submitting. No news is definitely not good news. If you still haven't heard anything, follow up and resubmit. No early class dates for us, but...

    CIL August 2016 Bid

    Uhhh did you miss all the people with that email getting reassigned to new reps for some odd reason? I don't want to wait until week 4 just to be back at square one. There's definitely an issue with the Patriots address beyond them being busy. Every "little" delay at this point is multiplied by...

    CIL August 2016 Bid

    Yeah, no. I don't think any of you people with actual HR reps understand how frustrating this Patriots email is. It's almost like it got sent from a glitched account. Not at all smooth like the other reps. I'm sure I'll get a CIL eventually, but whether it comes in the 4 weeks specified in my...

    I Was Given En Route As My Specialty. How is That Chosen?

    Consider me the Edward Snowden of ATC then: https://pointsixtyfive.com/resources/new-hire-track-selection.110/ That's the document about new hire track selection. Basically just a list they go down. #1 gets enroute, #2 gets terminal, #3 gets enroute, and so on. Alternates one after the other...
