    ? about active duty, OTS, Pilot training and a friggin deployment!

    Advertisements
    Okay, so DF just graduated college in May, is a pvt pilot outside the AF and has been actively working on being a pilot in the AF. He has taken the OTS test, and some of the pilot tests as well. He is only really worried about his vision...he submits his officer package in August...its reviewed by the board on the 17th of August....WELL
    he just got orders back to England and he deploys this coming fall....SO we were planning on getting married now on August 22nd now (yea 8 weeks ) then he will deploy, then come back and in like 2 months we will move to England...BUT he only wants to go to OTS if he can be a pilot...if he cant he wont go....SO basically what I want to know is when should we find out about OTS?? I am tryin to figure out if we are going to end up going to England or not!
    any ideas are welcome, thanks ladies!

    OTS can take MONTHS to get an answer... and if he's active duty they can make him wait even longer to report (1+ years sometimes). DH was supposed to get his packet put in August too but has been TDY way too much... Good luck to your DH... Why doesn't he want to go officer even if he can't be a pilot? I can't imagine going through the process, getting in and then my DH saying "oh I want to stay enlisted and make a lot less money". If you need someone to talk to PM me.

    Because you say he's concerned about his eyes, if he doesn't get picked up for pilot, can he try for NFO? I'm not sure what the AF term is for NFO....AFFO?!?

    Or what about getting Lasik?!
