Good luck.Been to Kuwait, Turkey, and UAE. I was just outside Abu Dhabi. Only got to see the city twice. I'm going to Iraq for 6 months in April. It gets really boring.
Good luck getting a contract job. Especially to anywhere decent. You gotta know somebody to get those jobs.
Its funny to hear that, becuase it reminds me of controllers that I have worked with, been rated at a place and thinks they handle more traffic in one day than a 15 month deployment at TQ. Its just funny to hear, no offense to you, but Ive worked there along with 4 other airports, although it wasnt the busiest Ive worked at it has its challenges you wont understand unless youve worked there.i know usaf controllers must be so terrible they gave us the entire country to control when the war first kicked off lol....now civilians control 240 and above...remind me how much airspace the great TQ owns....oh thats right surface to 5k and a twenty mile radius of your one airport...must be so tuff!!:bowdown: i talked to more planes on one shift at ORBD than you probaly talked to in your in entire 15 month deployment
And that is why I joined the Air Force and not the ArmyI can't believe some of you are complaining about working in an air conditioned tower living in dorms making what you make when you know there are guys out there making less than you getting shot at living in a tent with a lot harsher conditions. I was deployed for a bit, work on a flightline and sleeping in a tent temps between -30F to 120F and I consider myself lucky because all I did was work on the aircraft and not have to drive on a road that could have mines hiding below it and have to raid a village potentially get shot at.
