You'll have it any day, I'm sure. LH mentioned to me he was working on 5 of them so I'm sure it will be soon!

Re: 4/22/2011 Enroute Basics

Are all ya'll OTS? No prior experience? Studying anything for prep?
OTS here, but I've been CTI for a while in Denver. Their program is a bachelors degree program, so its 4 years instead of 2. Just been working on minor credits and whatnot while I've been waiting for this.

I had an internship at DEN ATCT over the summer of '09. Did a lot of monitoring there and at the TRACON and at ZDV as well actually since they all work together.

Also, a professor of mine here made us memorize the map for OKC as one of our finals in an ATC class. I have blank copies of the airspace we'll study in OKC that I practice filling in from scratch.

That's about it though. No real experience.

Its official FOL , LH called me today :) I started this process back in July 2008 . so im thrilled to actually have an FOL
It looks like we are all in the same boat. Been in this process for what seems like forever. July '08 application, July '09 TOL, March '11 FOL. My friends all thought I was a liar!

Los Angeles, Marina Del Ray to be exact.

I'm from NW San Antonio, right by Fiesta Texas. You know why it's so windy here in Texas? Cause OK blows!

I'm still trying to figure out where to stay. Wanted to rent a house w/ someone in the class and split the bills or something like that, but it's looking like I'll probably just be getting a 3 month lease somewhere and then doing a month at one of those extended stays.

Re: 4/22/2011 Enroute Basics

Took a weekend trip to Lajitas one time in my Aerostar. Coming back I guess the Feds got excited to see an aircraft pop up out of the mountains. When I landed at Fredricksburg the local cops were waiting. Ten minutes later the DEA C440 landed - they could not keep up with the Aerostar! Thought they were going to tear my plane apart searching for non-existant contraband.

Cheers,:cheers:

Re: 4/22/2011 Enroute Basics

Actually, they are gonna pay me through the week of April 22nd. So, that is really nice of them. However, they aren't going to pay me my bonus so I guess it is all a wash. I am freaked out/excited about this whole thing currently, how about you guys?........

I am standing here looking at this house I have lived in for 4 years wondering what the hell am I going to do:banghead:
