Hey does anyone have any info on this facility or the area? Is there anybody who works there currently or is slated to go there? Is there anyone that could give any info on the move up there or to an adjacent city/facility?

Funny you posted that. It was because of that article I declined FAI.
Kind of a worst case scenario, looks like. All the same, glad we're going to the country club of Centers. I'm already signed up for the Muckleshoot slot club for after-work get togethers. Awww jea.

I recently talked to the natca rep on the phone. They have been working 6 day work weeks for a very long time. Sounded like the facililty was in total chaos. Approx. 500 tower ops and 550 radar ops a day. Hope this helps.

Hey everyone...
I'm currently a developmental at KEVV (Evansville, IN ATCT/TRACON) and I'm throwing out my ERR bids to anywhere possible. FAI is one place I'm seriously considering. Does anyone have ANY knowledge of the facility as of this date? Anyone work there? Know anyone who works/worked there? Thanks in advance!

So.. any updates on the Fairbanks tower? Pros and Cons? If you'd like to send me a private message, please do. Are you guys still working 6 days a week? Is there anything to do out there on your days off? do the people get along with each other? How do you handle the all night and all day with no sunlight... Does the facility provide UV lights to keep people from S.A.D. ?
