I tried to get this info out of HR this week, and they coudn't give me a date. Rumor in the facilities is that they're laying off the "off-the-street" vacancy announcements for a while.

If they're not taking off the street applicants, does that mean the only route for non-prior service types is CTI?

Daughter is in the program at ASU. TC

CTI or military controllers (VRAs). The lady told me they are just laying off the OTS announcements for a while....we will see it again, just not right now.

At some point in the process they ask you to pick georgraphic locations by state for which you desire to be considered. That's about the best you'll get there.

Thanks for all the good info. The ATC board on FI is a lot more Mature and informative than the Regional and Major boards. Any other info ya'll have would be great. Myself like many others are looking to take the jump to ATC.

Not to sell another website, but there's a lot more career specific (job hiring process) info under atc at www.jetcareers.com, in the forum section.

You must be hired before your 31st birthday. Regardless of aviation experience.

Someone on the jetcareers forum said they talked with HR a few weeks ago and they mentioned maybe another OTS announcement in January/February.

I applied for the PUBNAT 5 announcement in July and just took the AT-SAT (91). The process is a long one. My dad is an ATC manager in MI and said the whole process right now from time applying to getting an OKC training date is 10 - 11 months. I am also another on the street Pilot turning possible ATC.

Atc

I answered the announcement that ended in September. I took the AT-SAT test in December and have a hiring deadline of April 17th. From what I have been told, you have to be given an offer by your 31st birthday, and if you are getting close to the deadline (depending on test score) they will push you through the process a little faster.

A buddy of mine put in his initial application in Jan, 2008 and was in the November school in OKC.
