Re: YVR VFR - JULY 2017

There's a VFR course going on in July with two seats, both of which have been filled by internal FSS's who wish to make the transition to ATC. There will be another VFR course late this fall. I was told that they were unsure as to whether the course was going to run due to lack of instructors. I ha...

Re: How long does the background check usually take?

YWG, IFR course may 23. They still haven't contacted my references so I'm not sure what the hold up is. Well, if they have not yet contacted your references, then unfortunately for you it is just a waiting game. You shouldn't assume there is something wrong especially if you know you have no past. ...

Re: How long does the background check usually take?

Most of the time, the background check is very dependent on how quickly your references respond to the company NAV Canada uses to conduct the background screening. All in all, if you also have nothing in your past (criminal record etc...) - that should reduce the time it takes as well to complete th...

Re: YVR IFR for May 2017

I am asking because I got a stand by offer when you guys/girls did and was told that whoever got there background check and medicals in first would be selected first. Did they tell you how the stand by offers were given and how many received stand by offers? The waiting is killing me - it does seem ...

Re: Training Question

I'm VFR and finished my course this past summer and have been in on the job training since fall. There was no real typical day on course as it could vary depending on whether we were in the sim, in the class or if our schedule had to change because our course was the same time as the FSS course and...

Re: Career in ATS?

Thanks. When you say most don't make it, is that because they fail the program or because they don't like it? I imagine a combination of both, but is the fail rate high? Phase 1 and 2 last how long? Sorry, I'm sure this info is readily available. I'll do a search as well. Thanks again. Most don't m...

Re: Career in ATS?

1) are jobs plentiful in the industry? Short answer, yes they are plentiful. Most flight information regions, if not all, are short in some capacity in regards to ATS. There are a combination of reasons for this, but remember it takes awhile to train up new AT controllers. Most also, usually do not ...

Re: YVR- What exactly is the simulator like?

That's a good question, I asked the same type of question in a previous post. From what I gather, it is a very good opportunity more for the instructors and training team to see potential students first hand. They will be able to see how you react in a simulator both towards the simulator itself and...

Re: YVR demand

I can speak for IFR. Generally, they are short controllers and hiring. There will be possibly 2 IFR courses run in May 2017 (for sure 1). Most likely both an enroute and terminal course will be run. I know there is a VFR course already scheduled for this fall. I do not know about FSS.
