I am graduating this year from highschool, and I am looking at applying to be a controller this July when I graduate. I have been working with floatplanes here on the coast for 3 and a half years and during such time I have talked to many people about becoming one and it seems like something I would like to do.
I am wondering if any of you guys have any advice for a young person that can help me reach my goal, anything to do well in at school, extra stuff that might help?
Also I would be interested in finding out about the first aptitude test and what sort of questions I should be encountering.
One other thing I am confused about... Everyone on here keeps talking about training sessions at YVR, YEG etc. Do you apply to work in a specific region, and when space is availible they train you for that specific region? How does that work? My goal is to work VFR at YVR.
Thanks to anyone who can help me out!
