Also, I'f you're interested in the CTI portion of becoming a controller, I'm compiling a blog that will discuss all of this.  Here's the link: http://atcontrol101.blogspot.com/

And, congrats again JD!  smiley

Cobgrats JD.
I can only imagine how you must feel, being about 1 year behind you in Canada. I can (almost) see the light at the end of the tunnel but the hardest and most demanding part is yet to come (although I'm looking forward to it).
One thing you said is for sure though, it really is the coolest job in the world...

I have to disagree.... Flying F16s or F/A 18s for a living ranks one notch higher in my book.   smiley

Ok. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on that one having never flown an f-16 OR an f-18... hehe...  rolleyes

Neither have I, but when I am awaiting my departure turn and I hear the tower controller at my home airport say, "Cobra 1, wind 280 at 12, cleared for takeoff, you are cleared to 15,000 feet" (our airport is 420 feet above sea level) and then I watch this aircraft on full afterburner take off and then go vertical, I think to myself, "is our government really PAYING those pilots to fly that aircraft???"

edit: added airport elevation for full effect
