    AF question...

    Is there any advantage in AF for those who have graduated from FAA academy specifically TRACON option? Second is it possible to switch facilities in AF or it's only up to the boss where they want you to be?

    None of it will really help you...You will get to Keesler and have to go through classroom and sims...If you have 30 to 45 college credit complete with a C or higher you could earn your stripes right out of basic training instead of tech school.

    On the location you will put in a dream sheat....but they will wend you herethey need you....but you can switch places with other people at the schoolhouse

    Thanks for reply, I actually have AAS in Air Traffic Control. I am glad that at least college credits do matter.

    Yeah man everything helps...and its pretty easy to continue on with your degree in the AF once you get checked out!!!

    One thing to remember if you end up changing bases is that AMC(air mobility command) bases are all 24 hour facilities so watch out when switching

    Once your at a stateside bases it gets difficult to move to another stateside base. Only people that iv seen do it here are the ones that reenlisted and used base of preference with it to do it, everyone else goes to korea for a year to get the bop on the way back. CONUS to CONUS out of the blue is almost unheard of.

    Once you get to your first base, it will take you a while to get rated. Then start puttin in for other bases. unless you love the base you're at, then blank out your dream sheet. And if you hate it, go Korea bound. Most people get a top 3 base after Korea.

    Good luck in your journey.
