Based on our list and my career goals, FAY is the smart choice for me.


I didn’t have any expectations going in... so for an accurate “going in feel” I’d say 5 (neutral)

Now that it’s all said and done, it all depends on how you apply yourself and how well you can control/handle your nerves. Can you run a simulated problem in front of an FAA evaluator with your job on the line? If you get yourself down the shitter, can you dig yourself out? That is the real academy. As far as a score goes for how it actually is it’s a 10/10 for me. Subjective...but it’s no joke.
How many facilities in the Carolinas were offered in your class?

Well, I’m going to the North one so 1.

Congrats!! Where are you headed? I don't have any questions yet, but I'm sure I will once I'm there (heading there in late July).
Headed to FAY in NC.

you might wanna think of some while it’s fresh in my brain, late July (gonna be honest) I won’t be on this thread/website very much.

I’m pretty sure august is filled. I was cleared between feb 2nd and March 9th and I got a call This week asking if I wanted a last minute en route spot for 6/24. I declined due to it being so last minute and was told I was going to get September then.

I wonder if requesting for either track puts you further back down the queue

I got told it wouldn’t affect me and I would remain on top of the list if any class seats become available. The only thing is since she offered me en route that will be what I’m offered in the future.

It’s random path selection

I asked my HR rep for enroute a few months ago and then they gave me terminal LMAO. Probably a good thing now that I think about it: higher academy pass rates, shorter training times since centers are all backed up, more possible places to go, can see outside and not stuck in a dark ass room screwing with your circadian rhythm in addition to shift work, potential to work at a tower only that isn't 24/7

Good reasons why I’m leaning towards terminal.
