BTV/DSM/FAT/GPT would be my choices for an up/down.
PRC if you want tower. I'd probably pick PRC as my overall choice on that list.

If you want to move after you attain CPC, look over the priority placement tool and review facility staffing numbers. See how many inbounds and outbounds are indicated. If you pick a facility with chronic understaffing you may be there a long while. Otherwise, level 7 up/ down with good locality pay.

Anyone know when placements will be selected from the last round of lists that went out on May 30th? Looking back it seem as though it only took a few days, wondering why it's taking longer this time around.

I use to work at an Army radar facility in Germany but did not get rated due to ETS. Would I be able to use that radar experience for facility placement considerations in the FAA or is facility rating required?

Ratings are required prior to the bid closing. You can put it on a resume, but it won't be factored in for placement purposes.
  • Applicants MUST submit copies of certifications prior to the closing date of the announcement. (The 52 weeks of consecutive, certified experience cannot include any FAA Academy or military training time prior to certification, as this is not considered "live" air traffic) and must have been within 5 years of application

Traffic count is not an accurate metric to try and cross reference.

I can tell you what you’re going to be offered. If you’re tower only: 7 and below towers and up/downs.
If you have an approach cert that’s not from somewhere like Honduras, you can get up to lvl9 up/downs, and some of the stand alone tracons.


It’s in the email sent with facilities/survey
Hey MJ I have En Route from FACSFAC San Diego. What you think I would be offered?
