Just wondering if anyone has been selected for Ohio or knows anything about the staffing levels at any of those facilities. Thanks in advance!
Congrats on the big news!! As for me, I'm a 5/2er so I've got a bit....but would love Dayton (or anything in Ohio really). Where would you like to end up?Yeah, I actually recieved the email this morning. I was selected for an Ohio terminal position, just don't know where yet! Are you planning on DAY? Or did you want another facility?
Scheduled for the 17th in Lisle, IL. Feeling pretty good about it, though I have to admit I'm anxious and just want to get it over with. If you don't mind I'd be interested in hearing a little bit about your background (ie military, other aviation exp, college grad etc) you might have to share. Good luck to you the rest of the way & thanks for your replies.Thanks! I'm excited!
I live in Columbus, so i would prefer Columbus. Dayton wouldn't be bad, i heard that they are building a new tower & facility?! I only put down Ohio as my Geo preference, so maybe you should do the same ? ( if you only want Ohio that is) i have seen a lot of people not getting their first choice, and well with me they didn't have a choice! lol Have you taken your ATSAT yet?
Well I'm sure the schooling helped out with the experience requirement of the application if nothing else, so it's not a total waste. I'm currently about sixteen hours short of my degree from Ohio U majoring in Aviation Management and will wrap that up this summer... can't wait to get it finished. As for my hotel arrangements, I got a couple free nights at the La Quinta from some sky miles and it's only about six miles from the test, so I lucked out there. I wish I had some better questions for you now but I can't think of any off hand... but I'm sure I'll come up with some as the time comes (hope you don't mind)Wow i totally missed the rest of your question!
I'm not military... my entire family is now it seems but not myself. No aviation experience either unless you count skydiving?
I haven't finished college either! Lol I was getting a degree in Film Studies at Ohio State of all things, and well i went to LA and hated it. So here i am 10 classes short of my bachelors in a field i'll never use and going to be an Air Traffic Controller...random huh?
Let's just call ourselves the 3 amigos... or 3 ohioans... O-H! Haha, jk, Couldn't help but read something about Ohio towers... I'm a born and raised and collegiately-attended Ohioan (OSU... if you couldn't tell). I applied for OH. i'm in the 5-2 pool, so im taking ATSAT here in a week or so... Dayton IS building a new tower... progress/blueprints would show it will be a great upgrade (I grew up in Dayton so DAY has a fond place in my heart). Currently living in Colmbus so CMH wouldn't be bad either! I put OH as my top geo pref but I've still got a while too... best of luck!
