Announcements / Teamspeak Maintenance - 2019-01-21 03-07z
« Last post by Matthew Kosmoski on January 21, 2019, 03:58:36 AM »
The host of the server hosting our Teamspeak instances has indicated they need a maintenance window as part of a data center migration.  The maintenance window is Saturday, 2019-01-21 from 03z to 07z.

We do not expect the maintenance to take the entire two hour window, but we are prepared for the entire window.

Announcements / Approach Solo Validations - I90
« Last post by Matthew Kosmoski on January 06, 2019, 06:38:59 AM »
Effectively immediately, the I90 (HOU_APP) is available to be issued as a GRP solo validation facility as permitted by GRP 4.5(a) for S2 rated students.  Additionally, at the direction of VATUSA and pursuant to GRP 4.5(a)1, students may no longer be issued more than one GRP solo validation concurrently.

Instructors/Mentors - Please work with your students and provide the necessary transition training to allow them to work the I90 as a solo field.  Upon completion of a OTS and promotion to S3, students that were solo validated on the I90 shall be issued major endorsements.

The survey seems to be working for event ideas. Now with an added layer of security! Maybe this time I'll prevent all the "your mother" related email addresses I got last time.

Announcements / Updated ZDV LOA
« Last post by Matthew Kosmoski on November 12, 2018, 07:30:34 PM »
The visitation LOA with Denver has been updated.  The change no longer requires ZHU controller to check for ZDV CBTs prior to controlling eligible ZDV positions, but as always, we recommend you seek instruction if you're uncomfortable or unfamiliar with a position.

We would like to express our appreciation to ZDV for their efforts in updating this LOA and helping to reduce barriers to controlling!

Announcements / ZHU Appoints New Facility Engineer
« Last post by Matthew Kosmoski on November 07, 2018, 03:47:53 AM »
Please join me in welcoming Ryan Barnes in to the role as the ZHU Facility Engineer.  Ryan has been a member of ZHU for two years and has distinguished himself with his willingness to participate and get involved as a mentor and one of our most active controllers.  His attention  to detail and desire to improve our client data will serve well in this role.  Ryan is well known for offering his assistance to other facilities, as well, and regularly lends his support to our partner facilities and facilities he visits.

Additionally, Carson Page is rejoining the ZHU staff as an Assistant Facility Engineer.  Carson is one of our most tenured members, with over three years on the roster.  Carson has previously served as our Webmaster and as a mentor.  Carson's interest and skill set in scripting and automation will bring our ability to develop and maintain the facility data with faster development cycles and improve maintainability.

These two together form a powerhouse team and we're happy to bring them aboard!
