    it lasts quite a while...i can't remember exactly but it was almost a year in Pensacola with waiting time in between different portions (it was really backed up then and from what his friends say, i think it still is). and that was only for primary. he made it through intermediate before he decided he didn't want to be a pilot and that was about a year and a half for both.

    i loved Pensacola, though! ahh, gorgeous natural beaches that go on for miles and miles

    have you been on airwarriors.com? a lot of rumors get spread on there, but i still got a lot of helpful information too.

    if you have an specific questions PM me...i have lots of stories

    Thanks Christina!! I'm just wondering the length and if it'd be worth buying a home. My hubby does have an account on airwarriors.com and reads it from time to time, but says there are a lot of cocky asses on it....HAHA!

    yeah that's what i was trying to say nicely in my reply...but you hit the nail on the head!

    i think it can be really random how long it lasts though. DF's college buddy started at the same time and left three months earlier because of the private pilot courses they take. when does he start?

    DH has 4 college semesters(including summer sem) left before he gets commissioned. Sure it may be a ways away, but I'm not the type of person who waits a week before getting orders to start planning for the future.

    With it being hurricane city down there, I'm afraid to buy a home...LOL!!!

    oh yeah, haha! we were through two hurricanes but neither hit close by so it was just long power outages, etc.

    there is the option to go to intermediate at that other base that is about 40 miles away (the name has slipped my mind right now), and if i remember correctly the people who were married got their first choice on where to go for intermediate since it is much shorter. we knew some people who bought houses, but i wouldn't have just because it is still a pretty short time.

    the rent there was crazy cheap, though, compared to everything i'm used to! our two bedroom was half the cost of what we're paying for a one bedroom in san diego, and it was across the street from pensacola bay!

    if you're thinking about apartments, we loved Ashley Club on Scenic Highway.

    Thanks for the pointers! I just looked it up! They are crazy cheap. Too bad they don't have 3 bedrooms. We're most likely going to have another wee one when we arrive...HAHA! How was the housing on base, in your opinion?
