I just got my facility from the experience bid with a start date. I just assumed I’d be starting at the lowest pay band making like 48k or whatever it is. Moving a family of 5 to another state making that would be tough. Even with the GI bill. However, now I’m hearing from a couple controllers at the facility that I’m going to, that they started at around 75K during training, with the GI bill on top of that. This would be new, and good news to me. I was told one of them kept his salary from the contract tower he came from, and the other said they just started at D2 (since there is no D1), with 10% CIP. I’m also coming from 10 years navy, then 5 contract. I apologize if there is alreadyy a thread explaining this. If so, if anyone could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.
