Haha this websites amazing... No i may not be a controller at the facility but that doesnt mean anything when it comes to seeing whether or not PCT is a busy facility and jumped from a 7 to an 11 (giggity) is a daunting task. Can it be done? I don't have a doubt... I was more so saying it in a joking tone when I originally commented on this thread but i wouldnt expect anything less than everyone bringing down the "intern" lol. I mean thats how this career field works right? Gotta start somewhere... I know that and im perfectly okay with that.
Like ive said before we can all agree to disagree.
I do! thanks for that bit of info.From what I've gathered IAD, BWI and DCA are all high-structure, high-volume. IAD is the busiest traffic-wise but comes in 3 banks. BWI is close behind but is spread out throughout the day. Idk much else about DCA. RIC is like any slower tracon. Beehive in the summer, otherwise dead.
Do you have a start date of Oct 18th as well?
Pretty sure the only terminal facilities that are using qwerty are military and DOD.I understand that when a facility transitions to STARS, they get a choice of keyboard.
With the new STARS at PCT, did the facility elect to stay with the ABC keyboards from ARTS or did they go with the QWERTY keyboards?
