Hello Mr. Gray,
I do have a recommendation for you. Make the Academy training match N90. It is clear that many new hires will be sent to the New York TRACON. Why not use N90’s particular information – procedures, video maps, and traffic flows, as the base line. N90 has several areas to choose from with all of the training information required to develop and then demonstrate ATC skills. New N90 scenarios can be used at the Academy. If you were able to do this, then each NDIS academy graduate would have a tangible advantage upon arrival at the facility.
N90 59% of authorized CPC’s. A conservative estimate of 200+ new selections should be made in order to attain their staffing goal.
