As fighting Irish said, oftentimes, NATCA will collaborate with MGMT on the ranking list. It's just as, if not more, important to be reaching out to the FACREP. I would definitely highlight all the additional duties you may do at your facility. If you're a Subject matter expert on UAS or part of the Local Safety Council or Traffic Count validation committee, sell yourself.Any idea of what the Manager's are generally looking for when ranking candidates and does that ranking hold firm once it reaches the NCEPT folks and it's their time to actually make selections?
2 level 12 TRACON tickets a level 8 up/down in my FAA career and was skipped at SCT for 6 candidates, 4 of which were from a level 10 and below. I saw a level 6 and 7 in there, too! At the time my facility was a Cat 1 or 2 and I think we were releasing 5 or more. Congrats to everyone who got selected, I Don't mean any hate on you guys/gals. Just trying to make sense, if any, of all this. 😂
