Everything I heard is that it historically has a horrible training success rate, critical understaffing, hard as balls traffic for a level 8 and lots of moody controllers. The new New England RVP ran partly on vowing to fix the place, that was a year ago so maybe it’s a little better now.Does this place suck? Whole lot of no details here....
98% is not true. We've lost at least 15 since I got here in 2015, but 64% does seem low.Yeah, I'm not exactly sure how accurate the passing rate numbers are for some facilities.
Last time I visited D10, I talked to one of the controllers that's been certified there for a while and he said the last wave of 40 trainees they had were all fully certified except for one and that person didn't get qualified due to special circumstances; possibly some medical or personal issues or something like that.
That's a 98% success rate compared to the 64% it's supposed to have. Maybe that was just one wave of really good controllers, but I'm personally not too concerned about it. Find the person that likes teaching and ask every single question you can think of. Open a book in your spare time.
