I was an army controller for 6 years. They sign you up for 15Q or ATC which is a 6 year gig. Most controllers go through the school house and most will have at least 1 CTO by the time they get out of the first contract. You will need at least 52 weeks rated time to be considered for the experienced bid. Be mindful of the age requirements.I believe Air Force has four year enlistments for Air Traffic right now. Go Air Force you'll go to a tower or approach and get facility rated. No worrying about getting sent to a ship. Lol. Aim for a pilot training base or Eglin.
I was in this situation as I was stuck overseas during the testing dates. They sent me an email saying that there would be additional testing later for those who couldn't make it. I waited about a month before contacting them via phone. They told me over the phone that it would be "quite a few months out" and basically to get comfy as it wont be anytime soon. My old test scored ended up being used and I received referred anyways... though I still have yet to receive any info about additional test dates.Has anyone who couldn't make the 6/14 testing deadline heard anything from FAA about rescheduled test dates? I am assuming there will be posts about it but it's unclear how many of you might not have been able to test.
covid. Covid is what’s going on.Talked to HR today, I told the lady that I had read that TOL's were supposed to go out by August, and I wanted to ask about what's going on. Tells me "Yeah, that's not accurate information anymore. Hope this helped."....... no shit, thanks for the groundbreaking information.
