My class was in initial tower, day 1 of sims. We have been told that half our class is supposed to be on the 6th and the other half is supposed to be on the 10th... BUT we haven't received a welcome packet so... this is fun. And today is the last day of virtual review.

We also just got word from Kim about who is in what class. They told her who was supposed to come when. But STILL no communication from the FAA...
😂 A housing provider knows more about who is coming back to academy than the employees! Pretty sad.

We were 6 class days into enroute when we stopped. We have been told our class is starting back up on July 8, being split into 2 different classrooms, and that we will be restarting from Day 1.

The lack of/quality of communication to us, to the instructors, and clearly between FAA teams, is amazing. We still are waiting on the official letter emails - by the time we get them, a lot of people will have less than the minimum number of travel days to get back in time for classes. I also asked about, and they also have no official word on if, and when, they will be providing us with masks (sounds like they will, but no details). I'm thrilled to be getting back to complete training, and I feel extremely confident after the extra 8 weeks of online study, but it does suck big time to have our cohort split into 2 classes... and hopefully everyone else is flexible enough to get there in time, with no housing problems.

How many people in each class?

Update: we received our welcome letter yesterday afternoon after one of our instructors moved heaven and hell to plead our case. Technically today is our travel day since Friday is a holiday. Some of the class had to find and book flights last night for this holiday weekend. It's been fun.

I like your SNscreename :cool: . I had an ex named "seven" and those were dark days. 11 is way above. Palmdale is unfort. not a country club, but hey cant have it all right

Also, I dont think the academy will open til Fall. There are national politics at play.

Speculation from forum goers is a tough scene.

A class is in session at the Academy right now. The classes that were put on hold are starting to go back now, the first one starting today on a night time schedule.

Aye. I wish noting but the best and most expedient path to CPC for all trainees. Just seems like there are many obstacles at the moment. Country is on fire and fully involved, and I don't see MMAC as immune to them yet. Altho there aren't ppl dropping dead in Tulsa & OK proper like they said would happen so that's good!


LOCK THE THREAD MODS WORD HAS BEEN RECEIVED ACADEMY HAS REOPENED
