AKA “Goodbye OpenMarket, Hello NATS!”
As you may have noticed by the updates to my About and home pages – I’ve changed employers! Around Christmas I was offered a position with National Air Traffic Services as a Trainee Air Traffic Controller, meaning that I’ll be spending the next 3 years in intensive training to take on the job I’ve dreamed about for a long time! As sad as I am to have left OpenMarket at the start of March, I’m really excited by what the future holds, and can’t wait until my training begins at the end of May.
For those of you worried by the prospect of me being responsible for air traffic, your concern is understandable. Paul has kindly launched ismattdysoncurrentlycontrollingtheskys.com service so you can check before you fly.
