wanted to see who out there went from faa to train dispatching or train dispatching to faa. what their thoughts were. i've been a train dispatcher for almost a year now and I don't really mind it. I didn't really like at first compared to atc but I guess I'm used to it now. I have an interview for the FAA and if i get hired not sure if i should go FAA or stay with my train gig. Please help!! will my life be that much better in the FAA??

Funny, I'm looking at going the opposite direction you are! I'm currently working for the FAA and looking to switch to Train Dispatching! I couldn't help you out much as far as what making the switch would be like, but I can tell ya about life on the FAA side!

why the switch from faa to train dispatching?
I've only controlled in the military and I always thought it was fun but i know its a whole different ball game in the faa.
