    Tell me more about this rumored "Island Locality." More than likely, I'll be moving my family there after finishing up at the academy.

    San Juan CERAP - ZSU

    i wasn't implying that you guys keep everyone you get, that would be silly. I know some schools only keep you if they like you as opposed to whether or not you actually prove yourself. Preciate the input. More than likely will be showing up on the facility's doorstep beginning of May ready to...

    Wife And I Traveling To OKC For January Class Date (Housing Suggestions?)

    Last statistic I heard, out of the last 12 students who brought families to go through En Route, 2 have passed. I didn't like those odds and sent my family packing the night before class started. Tough? Yes. However, it would be tougher in four months without a job.

    What Facility Did You Choose?

    En Route had to choose from ZNY/ZBW/ZMA for Eastern, ZID/ZAB for Central, and ZLC (pretty sure it was ZLC...could be mistaken though)/ZLA for Western. 5/8 who washed were CTI.

    En Route Map

    Does the old saying "don't count your eggs before they hatch" have any meaning here? Just work on getting to the academy and passing it. They give you a "good" idea of what to expect at your facility to a certain degree. But none of that matters if you don't make it through out of OKC alive...

    Booking Housing in OKC

    Book now. Don't wait. Look on the training catalog for an end date for your class. It's normally about four months to the date (if you're taking basics and if you're en route) from when you start. Also. Check your spam for your welcome packet...that's where mine went.
