The way it stands now, yeah. But in 2008(i think) FSS was federal nationwide. Contract went to lockheed, then leidos, and now its looking like it might not get renewed. the three main AK FSS hubs are preparing to take control of ALL the airport NOTAMS for the lower 48.It is unfortunate. So basically with FSS you put your time in and be done in 20 years minimum (doing the same thing for years) or try to look for other opportunities elsewhere (in the FAA or government) once you have some time build (if you went the FSS route) but actual terminal or enroute are not an option (including staff or sup positions).
And once upon a time, EVERYONE was getting shafted under the white book. The CTI program used to be worth something, then nothing, then kinda something. The air traffic standard test used to be on paper, then it was the ATSAT, now its the ATSA.
Nothing stays the same for very long, in the FAA....except our hilariously antiquated equipment.
