    Did you just apply to become a new Air Traffic Controller? If so, sound off and let us know where you're from!

    I got picked up by the February announcement. I was Army ATC for 6 years, and now I've been DoD ATC for four years, currently working Skywatch AIC down in Honduras. I'm really hoping to get assigned to a tower because I was never able to get a CTO while in the military, and the lack of it is killing my career prospects.

    Dan, you still haven't got a class date for the Feb 2014 announcement?

    Tom, from what I understood, the February announcement was for direct hire into a facility, bypassing the Academy, which is why it called for applicants to have at least 52 weeks of "active" ATC experience.

    Hey Dan congrats on getting hired! Hopefully you'll get that CTO soon!

    Tom, it was the February 2015 announcement, not 2014.

    Hey all, My name is Nate. I don't have an ATC or aviation background, but I applied anyway. I started flight/ground school back in January, and have fallen in love with all things airborne. i know it's a wicked long shot, but I figured I would apply and see what happens!
