Any info on this up/down facility? Any new applicants with TOLs? Anyone who works there know if they are hiring?

I work across the state but all I have ever heard is that TPA has terrible natca/managment relations. It's a busy busy level 10 up/down. I wish I was there though.

anyone got any contact info for TPA?

Thanks, trying to do a little networking before panels.
I went on the TPA airport website and got a phone number for the airport itself. I figure they would be able to give me the number to the facility. I don't have the # on me right now but you can find on the TPA airport website I believe.

Looks like this thread hasn't been updated in a while... what's the word on TPA?

Have heard that it is a level 10 now... can anyone confirm?

What is the traffic like? Busy 10, or slow 10?

Definitely would like to hear anyone's insight on the facility.

I'm also interested in TPA. I'm a cpc at a lvl 7 (was downgraded from an 8 recently) up-down. Do people there seem happy compared to other places? Is the relationship between controllers and management as bad as people in previous posts made it out to be? In general what is the operation like? Complicated, simple but high volume, or what?

Also, as a cpc what are my chances of successfully ERRing into TPA?

Thanks!

I toured TPA about 8 months ago, The tower was staffed by mostly under 30 somethings around mid day during a week day, the layout, approach, and visual spectrum of the tower seemed great, the airspace I saw in the tracon seemed as if it was set up to just "work", it made a ton of sense. Seemed like a good overall vibe.

I'm attempting to have a tour done while I'm on leave for the holidays. Called the manager's phone number but, alas, I was unable to leave a call-back number as I am on the ship still. Perhaps she'll email me back since I left that in place? :D
