Not sure where that fellow got their info, but it's pretty common knowledge that the FAA wants to split every up/down they can.Where did you get this info?
MCO (Orlando, FL) is a possibility for consolidation into Miami, but MEM (Memphis, TN), CLT (Charolette, NC), and CVG (Cincinnati-Covington, OH) are to far from Miami to be viable choices for consolidation.moflo

For now it is. I believe mia is supposed to be spilt along with mco, mem, clt, and cvg(?).
Actually, the point of it was that all of those facilities are currently Up & Down but are heavily rumored to be split into separate Tower/TRACON. The MIA deal is just an example of how the FAA will justify consolidation of TRACONS... Less is more in their eyes.MCO (Orlando, FL) is a possibility for consolidation into Miami, but MEM (Memphis, TN), CLT (Charolette, NC), and CVG (Cincinnati-Covington, OH) are to far from Miami to be viable choices for consolidation.
It would be more rational for MEM and CVG to be consolodated into IND (Indianapolis, IN), and CLT into PCT (Potomac Tracon, VA). But, then again, whoever said that the FAA was rational.
If a facility consolidates does that mean the facility that got the additional sector would raise in level thus increasing pay? Is that what your saying about a raise?I work at Palm Beach. Looks like things are leaning toward a consolidation sometime in 2010. MIA is scheduled to be split this January and all trainees there now were told their training would end in the tower. This I do know for a fact. So if you got Miami Tower you will not be training in the radar room. I am hoping for a consolidation because it would mean a good raise and no longer working on the Arts IIE. There are a lot of FPLs in disagreement with me but I have to look out for the family and if the proposal comes to fruition I would have no choice but to go. But who knows...they may stomp this thing out...things change so much that I won't believe it until I am sitting in front of a scope at MIA.
