From what I heard at the academy it’s a little ways off and it’s a waiting approval from HQ. Has to do with contracts ending from the last Guam bid from what I understood.

Just curious as to the conditions surrounding it I guess. Is it voluntary or just assigned?
Current ZUA developmental. Passed the academy back in 2017 and volunteered to go to ZUA because that is where I am from. So making the decision was not hard. Fellow developmental passed the academy 2 weeks after me and volunteered as well. Going straight from the academy, they just give you a plane ticket. If you sign up on the 3 year contract for prior CPC's they pay for moving expenses and housing for a couple weeks at a hotel until you find a place.

Yeah, that's along the lines of what I was thinking...I wouldn't mind going there at all, but I have no idea how I could move there on AG pay (aside from selling everything the wife and I own and starting fresh)

Ouch.. I’d be curious to see the pass numbers from classes with the flight plan problems compared to those without.

So you mean just coordinating a change in a flight plan?
No, a manual handoff w/ flight plan. From what I’ve heard, if you do not put it in quick enough, you’re not alerted of 2 or 3 conflicts that could tank a problem. My class didn’t have any, but other classes I know did didn’t do too well with them.

My class had this scenario. It’s exactly as you say. That one flight plan can kill your entire run.
