Hello all, I am new to the forum. Is there a list of which company provides services in specific contract towers, i.e. who has the contracts for FL, NH, & MA towers?

I'm currently a controller in the Navy and due to get out in October after 15 years and looking to continue my career in ATC. I can request an early out if hired, so i'm looking for any assistance in finding a job.

I'm a current FAA controller looking at options after age 56.

What are the main differences in pay, benefits & working conditions between contractors?

Avg pay is around 65K when you add in night/Sunday differentials and in some cases (AK, HI) add in a COLA adjustment. Benefits vary between companies and is kept somewhat proprietary so don't expect anyone to give specifics on the boards, I'm with Midwest and I like our benefit package. Working conditions depend on your approach and attitude. Some places are in the middle of nowhere and others are in metro areas, some places are surprisingly busy and complex at times, others aren't. Most places are slow enough that all positions are combined and often times you are the show working solo. There aren't the layers of management as in the FAA although you are still responsible for keeping up on CBI's and all the other stuff that the FAA sends down the pipeline. Overall, most places are decent gigs.

I retired from the FAA 3 years ago because of the layers of (mis) management. I love this job again. Its like it used to be in the mid 80s, at least the places I was at. You are held accountable. Do the job using good phraseology/procedures, and they will love you.

Unfortunately the new folks won't appreciate the glory days of the FAA. So much has changed. I've turned down many FCT offers. Just haven't found the one. Maybe its because I Can't decide Where I want to live when I grow up. Half considered applying at the academy. Would love to teach. As far as FCT's go, would really look forward to doing pattern work again. Decisions .......

You have got to be kidding. lol

Not trying to be pessimistic but there's about to be a couple hundred contract controllers on the street in a few weeks. I wouldn't plan on getting a contract job any time soon.

Seriously, sequestration may result in a lot of closed contract towers. You will be hitting the job market at the wrong time.
