Question: How does one stay sharp and current if it takes three years to be hired? I should think it would be difficult to maintain that level of competency.
Mr. Butler?

That's a discussion we've been having with the FAA since dinosaurs roamed the NAS. The first thing they do after hiring is test all our graduates on the "Basics" which we gave them in their first semester at the University. They then compare scores with those from other hiring sources (who have just completed a 5-week "teach the test" cram at the FAA Academy, just to show the colleges how superior the Academy is. sheesh.





As it turns out, my PUBNAT application is the one that landed me the job at ZDV, so I'll be attending the 5-week cram course in OKC. As for applicants that are going in via CTI applications who have waited as long as I, I've wondered the same thing.

I'm actually wondering if Dustin is having enough fun "workin' on the railroad" to turn them down again<?>




Bill, I was *this* close to being moved to the train dispatcher's desk (they were planning on moving me once I completed my conductor training in May), then the FAA called me. I didn't hesitate to say yes this time, but I would have really liked to try out dispatching for a spell, and I still intend to at some point in my life. I'm ready to begin this new adventure now, though; I've really missed being involved in aviation.
