A Level 12 like DFW gets trainees from medium sized airports who already have real experience. To get qualified here they go through a year of tough training and that training has a 30-40% wash out rate. Pass, and you get on the floor where you’ll then have to qualify on about a dozen roles. South arrivals, north departures, final monitor, feeder, etc.i saw a news today that controllers are still at a shortage, yet they closed the hiring window at this moment. are they intentionally over working current employees?
It takes a lot of time and effort to be deemed Certified and sit at the scopes during heavy Push operations.
