    Relocating across country

    I'm in OKC now with my family. We are going from AZ to WA. I had NO money saved to move. I sold TONS of stuff including all of our furniture and appliances. I then used the money from what I sold to get a UBOX from UHaul and to live on until I got the first check here (about 3 weeks). We put...

    3 Failed the En Route PV today

    Well I'm officially on edge. I'm going to be honest, I was thinking having some good aviation background (BS/AMT, CFII, Comm Multi Inst, RJ trained, and TONS of radio time) was a good indicator that I could handle it, but reading this is a good reality check. I absorb material by watching and...

    Noob here. OTS with a class date I think...

    My personal recommendation: have all your ducks in a row, but don't commit to anything until you have the FOL. Call around and find where you want to stay. Figure out how you are going to get to OKC. If you have to get out of your current housing arrangements see what needs to be done there...

    Moving to facility by way of OKC

    Looks like we are selling 95% of everything we own. I'm online listing stuff now. We are sending what we can fit in 300 cu ft in a moving pod up to ZSE. Then my husband, my son, our dog, myself, and anything we absolutely need for 4 months is going in our car. That's right, we are moving...

    Redirect Questions

    No reason to, my wait paid off. Just finished all my refreshes and waiting on a FOL. 2 weeks ago OKC was telling me to expect Feb 2012, but I got everything done really quick and this week when I called I was asked if I could go at the drop of a hat, because I may get end of Nov 2011!

    Redirect Questions

    Ross and I were both offered redirects from ZSE. Ross took it, I turned it down. Ross is at his facility working his way up the food chain. I am still waiting. I have had my TOL for approaching 2.5 years now. I have had many panic attacks about my TOL just being retracted all together...

    Should I bring the wife and children to FAA academy?

    Re: Bring the wife and children? Good Points! Pro - (if you do not live near the facility you are going to) bringing them means you only have to pay to sustain 1 household (rent, utilities, etc) My husband and infant are coming with me. We had almost verbatim the discussion above. He is in...
