I agree!CAK will be combining with Cleveland in the next few years (3-4yrs.) Cleveland isn't hiring new trainees because of this and they have a lot of new trainees so the best thing to do is go to TOL or CAK for the time being. Hope this helps! It's also a great place to get some training with less traffic before you go to CLE anyways.
If you were/are a CPC at your current fac. it might be different, but I have a friend who is there now and was a Pubnat 1 applicant. Has only recieved 3 hours of traning since starting in early March and says they are very disinterested in training new people. Almost "anti-training" like. Most likely because of the consolidation going on. Not sure if thats the reason why or not, but kind of what I gathered; and don't know if it would affect you ifyou were previously certified... .02:I was offered a transfer there while i wait for a hardship into CLE and I was wondering how someone out there likes it. Anyone on here work out there?
Digging this up from the grave - anyone have any insights as to how the downgrade talks are here? I saw some information that CAK was losing their TRACON, but curious if anyone here is actually here and has an update?
Is CAK (or MFD) expected to be downgraded as a result?CAK and MFD will be consolidating to CLE. YNG will be staying at YNG. Expect the official notification around the beginning of next year. The actual consolidation will be atleast a year from that date, but no earlier unless mutually agreed.
