All the time. If your lower level tower meets staffing requirements to transfer out, you are eligible to be selected at any facility.How often do they allow Termial employees transfer to an enroute/tracon?
1 month for Basics.Does anyone know how long the academy is for trainees going to N90? Is it longer since they are training specific N90 material now? I received a TOL for N90, just trying to get my feet wet with some info.
seriously making 50k right now on long island so you're take home is around 40k being generous that means one pay check is going to rent and the other is just going to living you're boarderline poverty level. I'm just waiting for the newsday headline that says new york tracon doesn't have enough qualified controllers to work airspace that day is coming in the next 60 months. I just wonder who gets the blameIf you wash out of N90, it's not the end of your career in the FAA. If you make it at N90, you're an ATC-12 CPC making $50k+ in OT a year, indefinitely.
On the other hand, if you know you want to retire at ZME (and I'd like to know how you know this, because I work with two guys who hated everything about the city), and your prior experience TOL is for enroute instead of terminal, then take the prior experience TOL and choose the center with the best staffing to facilitate your eventual transfer.
I’m sure he meant 50k JUST in over time. Then someone fixed it to 100k just in overtime. But yeah, if you were at AG pay it would suck but, people make it work off of less everyday.seriously making 50k right now on long island so you're take home is around 40k being generous that means one pay check is going to rent and the other is just going to living you're boarderline poverty level.

I can't be the only one that has no idea what you're saying.Whats the checkout rate since I left It can't be high. What's left to do now recall everyone you hired that passed the tests and give them another try. 4 weeks in the sim for ots people is a joke but unfortunately lets face fact's everyone's going to wake up one day and the tracon will move to cleveland because operating let alone training kids when that place is down to 45% staffing should be fun. Oh yea lets sell this job to some kid from a flyover state go there get taxed out the ass your minimum rent is around $1400 if your part of that 2% that checks out you'll make 250k nice if play russian roulette with those odds. You'll make 50K to start but make sure you live in moms basement because that's the only way you'll be able to afford anything let alone the downpayment on a house to avoid pmi....lol
According to the August 2017 Priority Placement Tool (PPT), N90 has 133 CPCs, which is 93 CPCs short of its collaboratively-developed operational staffing target of 226 CPCs. That has left the facility at just 58.8 percent of the CPC target with only 13 trainees. Without some change, within two years, N90's staffing is projected to decline further to 48.3 percent of the CPC target.
Problems resulting from the N90 staffing crisis were highlighted by events on Saturday, July 22, 2017. On that day, a ground delay program was implemented due to the N90 staffing limitations on the evening shift, which resulted in an air carrier canceling 50 flights. Subsequently, the airline voiced their concern and disappointment to the FAA, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and members of Congress. There is now a considerable amount of awareness and focus on staffing at N90, and an increased sense of urgency from the Agency to implement a plan to address the issue.

1. its going to happen they dug their own grave. I wish I remember the big black guys name from queens he watched his brother get murdered decided he should enlist became an airforce controller in Iraq. He would have checked out only he didn't want in the end I think everyone remembers his famous last words I'd rather take a bullet in iraq then work herePeople should really push for the facility to be moved off LI. I get the politics with the high paying jobs but they should fight it. It’s kinda ridiculous that they let the busiest airspace in the country get this understaffed.
