VATUSA Convention City Vote - Closes June 14th 2007


Recommended Posts

Atlanta has my vote.

Atlanta is the center of the Southeast and has the best convention facilities and will be more competitively priced.

Dallas and Houston is really south west.

Orlando and Miami are to far south, but do have warm weather.

Atlanta's ARTCC just south in Hampton, GA does have tours as does the Atlanta tower and the new STARs approach facility is just south in Peachtree City, GA.

 

The Miami ARTCC is on 76th street but they are not too friendly with visits (I used to work there) and the Miami approach and tower facilities are not easy to get too or into.

Orlando does have Disney and I do know some of the tower/approach facilities people there.

Getting into Miami/Orlando tracon facilities would be hell as they are down doznes of controllers between the two of them....

 

Dont plan on getting into any control facility at all... It requires at least 2 weeks notice and a backround check...all of which i dont think will happen in the 3 days of teh convention...plus they wont let that many people in.

A background check? Wow... security sounds tigher out there.

 

ZAB (and we're short staffed too) will let people in just on the approval of the OM, provided the visitor(s) is/are english speaking, older than 18, and have a government ID (DL or the like).

 

2 weeks lead time though? Ouch.

Apparently a lot of people here can't read. Or maybe it's a lack of attention.

 

Or maybe people are publicizing how they voted.

 

Cheers!

Nah, I think it's the other way.

 

Personally, I don't care if people "advertise" their city of choice in here. The only vote that is going to count is the one I receive in my email per the above mentioned instructions.

 

Don't worry! Be happy!
