Pilot slot woo! ....UPT bases? [Apr. 29th, 2010|03:56 pm]


So apparently we need to pick our base pref right away... Any pros/cons you guys have heard of? I heard good and bad things about Whiting, but more bad because coming back to the AF afterwards sucks. Is there a real big difference between Navy/AF/ENJJPT UPT? What about Vance vs Columbus vs Laughlin? Any light shed on this topic would be appreciated. Thanks.

When the hell did Sheppard get added to the list?

My choices were Pensacola NAS, Whitting, Laughlin, Vance, and Columbus.

I of course got Laughlin (I'm going there in October) A friend of mine is at Laughlin right now and says it's not that bad.

I've heard the downside to Whitting and Pensacola is Phase 3 is not done at either location and thus you're moved.

Anyways everyone is pretty much going to put a similar order to the one you chose so it's all kind of luck of the draw and when you get activated. I leave may 18th for ASBC.
