Why do you need an OJT Endorsement for a short term contract?

Day 1 - Pre-OJT/Transitional Training?
Day 2 - Training Day
Day 3 - Validation
Day 4 - Training new staff?

Wow. My flippant post is strangely accurate!

V-L how is the acquisition of Safeskys changing your day to day operation?

All you need is a validated ADC rating, an OJTI and be availableto start validation training immediately or in Jan 18 for a contracted periodof 4 months minimum.


Lady ATCO
However, salaries in Europe are very far from those paid in the Middle East. I am wondering why there arent more ATCO strikes across Europe. There are several pilot strikes already scheduled for this Christmas.

Maybe because there's more to it than salaries.

I don't do the controlling stuff anymore but didn't there used to be a (very sensible) requirement to have one year's experience using a particular endorsement - or whatever it's called these days - before being able to train someone?

Not sure.

The ‘lady’ I know of has been at Wycombe many years.

Judging by the Prestwick Notams, if you've got Aerodrome & Approach Radar ratings, you could start tomorrow .....

I assume that no bonding was added to the contract?

Or perhaps she’s a Prospect member and heard what had happened elsewhere?

Most units seem desperate... especially those not paying what the market demands... (no idea what PK pay so generally speaking)

It's a 'he' and not a 'she'

No 'she's' from WAP have used 'safeskys when they have had a better job offer with conditions'.

Maybe it's a 'he'.

In the current climate regarding vacancies, I suspect PIK are just being pragmatic. After all, if you wanted to work there, wouldn't you just contact their HR department & ask ? No point in spending money on adverts when, as Cleared for a Coffee says, everyone is desperate to recruit. In any case, given the uncertainty of the airport's future at present, would you give up your present job to go there without a particular reason ?

Nope, the one I know of is definitely a she. If you think it’s a ‘he’ then maybe there are two different candidates!

Bonding is a red herring anyway; paying off someones bond is cheaper than training your own ATCO.

Anyone know where ATCO jobs at Birmingham pop up these days, best to contact the airport directly?
