Pilots/ATC/Maintenance/Ramp and Line Guys
Tri-Cities. I already told you where I work. Stay patient with the hiring process it takes awhile unfourtantenly. Are you waiting to hear back test results?
Yes, sir. I probably took the test a month and a half ago and my status on usajobs still hasn't updated one way or the other. Not sure how well I did. That was a very unique test.
Its a little different from when I took it I think, but yes its an odd test. Is there still a pysh exam at the end of it?
You might be able to reapply under a future prior experience bid if one comes out before you get hired. I knew people who had prior experience, off the street, and cti bids all in.
En-route training is very structured compared to the terminal world, and is set up for people with no experience. Ill give you a snapshot of how my training went later when I have some time to type it out. To give you an idea, I had been at my facility for about 2 years before I actually made a transmission to a real pilot.
En-route money is good, especially at a level 12. I considered putting in for a supervisor bid at TYS a year or two ago but it would have been a 20-30K paycut, despite being a promotion.
Is a center's airspace broken up into sectors and divided up among the controllers working? How many aircraft per sector usually?
I think the cobra is one of the most beautiful helicopters out there. Love the Zulu the marines have. Its just something about the sleek profile.
Ive read probably 5 or 6 different books from the Vietnam era. I cant imagine flying back then.
Low Level Hell
I tried to get at least one from each mission. Favorite was probably low level hell. Scouts were insane.
