On my first post, I gave you information you didn't have, nor did you post...I'm trying to help you new guys out here...you took this same approach on another thread when you were asking for advice on what books to check up on...again, I gave you the single best piece of advice possible on what to read and you jumped down my throat.
If you read half of every post on this forum, there are posts that dance around everyone's question.
We are all doing our best to add what information we know in order to help the other person out.
When you get in the FAA you are going to have people over and over drill the same stuff into your head, stuff you think you already know, or don't need to know any more of, or information you think is useless. Take every piece of that and put it away for later use. Don't take the attitude that you don't need to know it, or I already know that, or that was useless information for me...just take it all in.
I can't stress enough how important it is to have a 100% positive and humble attitude in training...it will be your ticket to a great future with the FAA. I've seen too many people with negative attitudes towards other controllers, trainers, management, and such that don't make it.
Your ability to do the job is probably 30% of what it takes to be a controller...you will see that once you get in and see the caliber of controllers that are moving metal around...the other 70% is probably your attitude and ability to work well with your peers and get along with everyone. If you attitude stinks, you won't make it far.
I'm not saying your attitude stinks, but I've seen a handful of posts you have left and yes...some of them are sarcastic, but others, you are jumping the gun on people that are trying to help you out as best as they know.
You can't expect to get the exact answer you want every time you post a thread. All you could have done, politely, was ask in more detail what you were looking for if I didn't get it right the first time.
Now...the majority of this post is taken up by you bickering about the situation...and if you look at other posts, you will notice a lot of them are still unanswered as to the original question and most of them are still only half answered and those threads are 10 pages long!
I believe it took me three posts to give you all the information you needed...even with your attitude towards me after I didn't answer your question fully, I still decided to post every bit of information you requested without saying a word back...and geez...if it only takes three posts to get the information you need, I would think that is a winner thread right there.
Obviously this thread has gone off topic...like most others...but the good information lies within my third post I assume...so if you want, feel free to re-post it under another thread, you can even credit it as your own if you would like. I just wanted to make you aware of your attitude. It could lighten up just a little. I'm on here quite a bit and am trying to help as many new applicants as possible start their career as an ATCer.....After I saw your post on how you wanted me out of this forum, I got on the phone with my contact at "Aviation Careers" in OKC and had them explain to me exactly what happens with the SF-15 and I specifically asked your questions, that way you could get everything you wanted.
Hope this helps.
