Feb. 1st Enroute Basics Cancelled

Oh man...I was getting so pumped for this. So, I called today to try and get more details on my Feb. 1st start date and was told that it was cancelled. I am not sure of a new date yet as my rep said that she does not have the next soonest new Basics class date available to her yet. I am itching to get that date! Anyone had this experience yet and if so, have you found out your new date yet?

Re: February 1st basics

I called my rep today and was told Feb 1. I'm Terminal, CAK. I'm actually visiting a friend in Okie City right now, so I visited Kim's place and decided it was the way to go.

Re: February 1st basics

I guess we won't have enroute people with us at the basics, granted the "Feb 1 enroute canceled thingie".

Re: February 1st basics

It doesn't seem like there are many of us so far. I imagine we might have a few more terminal people when it gets closer to the date. But anyway, we will have to have a meet up for sure. And help each other out with study groups.

Re: February 1st basics

You get anything yet about updating your drug test? I think I need to do that but haven't received anything so far after being told my date.

Re: February 1st basics

I did my drug test refresher over a month ago. I was initially told I was selected for January 12th class, and they wouldn't get me a FOL until I took it again. I would contact your HR rep or their assistant and see if they can get you scheduled.

Re: February 1st basics

She gave me a phone number and is having me do my drug refresher. She also said no FOLs will go out until the 15th of Jan.

I already have my FOL. I've had it since 12/4/09. But I had already did my drug refresher before that. Before Thanksgiving even.

Re: February 1st basics

I'm just glad I'm terminal. It really looks like the enroute guys are getting hosed.

Yeah I feel the same way. But I didn't even put enroute as a choice. I wanted to do terminal. I like the idea of being able to see the planes. Well unless I would have went to an all tracon facility lol

Re: February 1st basics

Am I the only one who is afraid our class date will get changed at the last minute? Maybe I'm just paranoid by everything happening to everyone.

Re: February 1st basics

I am paranoid about that too. But they cancelled my original one already (1/12) so I am hoping this one sticks. I have the ability to hold my job until they day before class so I am ok.

See you guy's at Kim's place. Should be a good time. And it sounds like all of us are pilots too, which can't hurt.

I'm not a pilot...I'm the odd man out.

Re: February 1st basics

Hello internet forum!

I am going to OKC in February and wondering if anyone wants to room with me and save the per diem money? I am looking at places on craigslist and have found some very nice 2 and 3 bdrm furnished places for around $600-900 a month. Split 2 or 3 ways, that's at least $2000 a month we could be saving.

I will be bringing a car with me, so we can carpool...they look like they might be farther out than the places on here, but I'll wake up 30 minutes earlier for $2000 a month.

I have no qualms about living with someone from here, I guess I trust that the background checks from the FAA prove we're not completely raving lunatics.

I am a 26 yr old married female who likes to cook, just looking for a study-mate and to save some moola.

Post here or PM me so I can call some of these 2-3 bdrm places quickly, if anyone is interested.
