Unfortunately I am unable to make the above dates, but would very much like to attend one in future.

Would it be possible to allow more notice for future TRUCE dates, perhaps notifying the dates a few months in advance?

That way I might be able to convince rostering to give me the time off, or to process a leave request. From everyone I've spoken to who has attended, they say it is well worth it, so I'd happily use a day of leave if the company weren't willing to rearrange time in my roster.

I'd recommend a visit. It reminded me of when we combined flight deck and cabin crew Safety Equipment & Procedures training instead of doing it separately. We learned from each other.
Even as an ex RAF ATCO, it was interesting to be reminded that, for instance, an active front moving through substantially increases controller workload as aircraft deviate around Cb etc.

This sound very intresting and I am wondering if I would be applicable to apply. I got my CPL a year ago and havent been successful in finding a job so far, so my experiance is limited to my flightschool time as well as an obtained 737 rating.
