I have emailed all my controllers this post, as I know most of them have never visited the forums. So all my controllers have been notified. This is not acceptable in my book either and very disappointing to hear is happening at all before this post.

NOTAMs / Thank you Zach Hutcherson!

Alex I would like to extend an offer for the Seattle (KSEA)/ Portland (KPDX) area also. We have been really focusing our new controllers on VFR flying and I think that we have some great VFR airspace around here with Seattle area having also Renton (KRNT), Boeing Field (KBFI) and a few other in the Class Bravo. And with KPDX you have Vancover (Pearson Field), Troutdale, and Hillboro in the area. So lots of options.

But also not just Alex group, but I would like to extend my hand out to any ATO. Just send an email to and we will make sure to have people there.

See ya on the scopes.
