Good stuff... I did my refresh on the 10th, hopefully I'll get my FOL this week...

Is there anything you have to do once you get the FOL (more paperwork, etc)?
There is alot of basic stuff to fill in online for the EODS system. Be prepared to create the most obnoxious password of all time.

I see a few of you are picked up for MLI. I am slotted for this airport as well and given a class date of Feb. 12th for terminal basics.

MLI is hoppin! They are going to be up to their eyeballs in noobs before they even know what hit them. Are you familiar with the area at all?

Not really. I'm about 2 hours away from there and plan on commuting everyday. It's gonna be rough for a while.

Right there with you...I was planning on e-mailing/calling next week if I hadn't seen anything by the end of the week.

Where are you headed after OKC?
Unrelated question, but is your username a reference to TPB? Because if it is, I'm pretty sure we just became best friends.

Still waiting on a FOL --
I also received a copy of this NATCA email today from a buddy -- doesn't sound promising for those without a "FOL" -- lets hope this isn't the case:


I was on the NATCA telcon prior to this email. If your facility is at a point to where furloughs will cause overtime your facility will most likely be placed on a "leave exigency" which is where all annual leave is cancelled. Even primetime.

As for the academy it will still run like normal. If you have a FOL as of 1 February it will be honored, if you don't have a FOL yet then most likely you will be "frozen" and it may be a delay in receiving a FOL and academy date.

Nothing is final yet, but this is what's expected so dont freak out too much yet.
