I'm retiring in 5 months, and even though I have no plans to work again I'm curious to see what's out there.

Out of curiosity, would a CPC at a TRACON or Center be eligible to work at a contract tower, or do you need to have a CTO? And if so, is there any way to get it without ERRing to a Tower for your last few years before retirement?

I would imagine for a tower job you'd need the CTO. Since I've never worked at a tower I would never apply for a tower job. I'd only consider radar positions.

All of the contract tower positions I've seen posted have a requirement for 3-5 years experience with a CTO.
