    Time to change the avatar.

    Hey all, haven't posted much in a while but I've been busy gearing up for a big change leading to a great opportunity. I've been hired to become an airborne radio operator on our HC-130's. I'm looking at about 8-10 months of schooling all over the US. Texas, New Mexico, Florida and Washington State for SERE. When I'm done, I'll come back here and resume my day job and do most of my flying on nights and drill weekends. I'm excited for the TDY's and having a front row seat to the CSAR mission!

    Congratulations! Sounds like a great opportunity. I still remember Survival School at Fairchild - in February, in the mountains, in the snow...lot's of fun.

    that's awesome! congrats! are you still looking on trying to get a pilot slot somewhere down the line?
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Militarily, no. I missed the bus on that. For us you have to submit your package by 28 years old. Outside, it's a possibility.
