You'll get New Years day off. And that's a friday so you'll have a whole weekend after that. There'll be plenty of people who will go out drinking that night after class. If you're staying at some place like Kims or IB, there will probably be some kind of festivities that night.I was at the ATL PEPC on the Aug 4th and was told my class date is Dec 31.... I guess the FAA doesn't celebrate new years
I'm not an expert on the clearances, seeing that as far as I know I only have my medical clearance..... I'll be making some phone calls tomorrow. Anyway as long as they didn't have anything extra to say about the clearances I would say your all good. I was at the ATL PEPC on Aug 4th.... going to ZHU. What facility are you going to?I have emailed my hr rep about my current status. I attened PEPC in ATL and I recieved a response saying that she recieved my clearences and that i should expect a class date for Jan 2010. What does that mean? Did I pass everything? If anyone can help I would appreciate it
I should be heading to ZMA. I was at the ATL PEPC AUG 4. This sure is long wait. Patience here is a must!:bowdown:I'm not an expert on the clearances, seeing that as far as I know I only have my medical clearance..... I'll be making some phone calls tomorrow.

I agree. I would not go on that short of notice...I would be really pissed.16 hours is not enough when you have to quit your job and have finals the next week! You know the washout rate in this career is pretty high; burning bridges is probably not the best idea! I live in dallas and could have been to OKC in less than 4 hours. The fact is when you call them no one answers, email them and no one replys, and then thay call you and say be here the following morining and they expect you to drop everything. That is ridiculous. This is not the military.
I agree with you. My work alreay knows I could leave as soon as that phone call comes, or sometime after the first of the year. Unfortunately it looks like it'll be after the first of the year. But I've waited this long, what's a couple more months? Haha and it would take me an hour tops to pack up, get my dog, say bye to my parents and be on the road. I'd make arrangements on where to stay at on my way there.16 hrs is more than enough time for me. I keep a bag packed at all times. Sure the washout rate can be high, but if I have to burn a bridge to find out then so be it.
Well... getting a call asking you to be there the following morning is rare. I've only heard of it happening the one time. The next shortest notice was three days. Usually there's at least a week, if not a few....and then thay call you and say be here the following morining and they expect you to drop everything. That is ridiculous.
Heh, see, I've been making this work for me when it comes to collecting unemployment. Because of how unpredictable the schedule was, I don't actually want to get a job. I mean, if the right thing presented itself I'd go for it, but who wants to hire someone that could be called away at any given time with as little as a day's notice?I would like to think I would tell them I need more time, but I have informed my current employer that I may be contacted at ANY time and given notice anywhere from a month to a few hours away.
Right? We're not exactly unemployed... it's almost like we've been furloughed before we started. It's unfair to an employer to start, get trained, and then leave in the middle of it. And there's aren't a lot of temporary places, short of grunt manual labor, that'll take you when you might not be there the next day.ha! LOLZOMGLMAOROFLBRB! yeah i'm right there with you! I don't want to find a job seeing as I may be called at any time and it's a disservice to the employer that hires me and I leave a month later.
