Well, with the job market being what it is in Los Angeles now, I would imagine that it would be pretty difficult to get in off of the street. However, I know that the demand has risen in our region, so perhaps that just may be a stigma.
I have read some articles in the Valley (specifically VNY, where I will be training) saying that many of the unemployed were looking into ATC as a career.
If I wouldn't have invested so much money into my business education, I might have done it myself.
Do you know of anyone else on the site that has airline industry background? So cool to meet you!!
