Hola amigos.

I got a call from my HR Rep this week saying that I had a class date of Jan 29th for enroute basics. Anyone else have this date yet? I just reserved my room at Isola Bella.

Re: Jan 29th Basics?

I would love to get a call like that! I got the call two weeks ago saying that I was all clear and there were January classes, but if they filled up I would have to wait until the summer... crossing my fingers I get a similar call next week. Congrats! oh and I'm headed to ZNY.

Re: Jan 29th Basics?

I thought of starting one of these threads with my start date, which is pretty close to yours: Feb 1st. I am ready to go!! I am thinking Isola Bella too. Gotta find some guitar players to jam (acoustically that is) with while there.

Re: Jan 29th Basics?

So I'm curious.. I was told about 3-4 weeks ago my class date would be January 29th. So far, nothing else. No FOL, no paperwork, no phone call saying it's being cancelled.

I haven't turned in my 2 weeks notice at my current job yet.. but how safe would it be for me to do so around January 10th or so?

Congrats on the call....just wondering how long you had been waiting on a class date, and where you are going? I am trying to get an idea of what regions are really affected by the quota cutbacks.

Have you taken your drug test retake yet? I went to the Chicago PEPC in June also, and when my HR rep called me she told me to schedule a drug test. I got my FOL shortly after I did the re-take.

I would think you should know by the 10th of January what your class status is. Those of us in the December 30 and 31 classes have received are Academy packets as of last week, so about 3 weeks before the class date.

Re: Jan 29th Basics?

I'm from pubak. I thought it was pubnat 6 but Aviation Careers told me it was ak instead. I've been waiting on a class date since August 17th. I remember thats the day I got all my clearances because it was my birthday haha.

I'm heading to ZAN.

Thanks for all the info guys. I did my drug retake the day she told me my class date, so those results should be back. I'l stop freaking out so much and just wait for the paperwork to come

Re: Jan 29th Basics?

Anyone hear if this class date is amongst the ones that are to be cancelled? I have an FOL for this class date.

Thanks,

It sounds like all future En Route classes are in limbo... and we probably won't know until the New Year, what with the holidays and Atlanta parties and all. In the words of HR... "don't make any life changing plans".

Re: Jan 29th Basics?

im pretty much in the mindset i wont be heading to the academy for this class. i guess it will be better to have a nice surprise saying i'm going after all if it's not cancelled.

That's the weird thing. That's how its looked for at least a month now, before people starting get calls and hearing things about cancellations. Maybe they're still making up their minds... dunno.

Re: Jan 29th Basics?

My thoughts are that the facility may have lowered the number of people they needed for the first half of this year. 1st come 1st served. Instead of getting 15 they only get 5. That means 10 people with FOLS will get that sad call. Kind of F'd up if you ask me. If one has a FOL the FAA should honor it. No FOL? It means the FAA only broke hearts with the false news of a possible class date. I may be in the same boat. I will find out soon enough :(

You went on vacation to Iceland? I mean, I know you live in Tempe and all, but... dang.

Re: Jan 29th Basics?

I just found out today that I'm heading to OKC on January 29th. I'll be headed to ZNY. I don't have my packet yet but what steps should I take to get ready to head out?
