IFS was about a month, with API being 6 weeks - there might be a wait before either starts - my son graduated OCS in Aug of last year, reported a week after commissioning to Pensacola, moved into the BOQ while he found an apt - a great one only a mile from the base (Countrywood Apts) was there 6 months and then moved on Valentines Day to Corpus. So, in 8 months, he's lived in Michigan, Rhode Island, Florida, now Texas. He finished API on Wed, packed his truck and left for Corpus Sat morning - so not much down time between the end of API an the start of Primary. Now, if you're NFO, you go to Pensacola for over a year - many pilots/NFO's lived at Countrywood - made it nice to find a study partner there - and when you have to be on base at 6am - convenience was a definite plus!!!- If you have other questions, send me a private post - or check out navyformoms.com! Another great site with lots of great information on all stages of pilot training! Hope this helps :)

Does anyone know how long IFS will take?

Does anyone have any info on the Growler? Are they flying them already or will it be when the Prowler's are decommissioned?

It sounds like some of you have been in TExas for awhile or will be here soon. I started a thread a few days ago with some links for things to do in central Texas. I KNOW that Kingsville and Corpus are not that close, but there might be some things there that would make a good Saturday-Sunday trip. If you ladies come up with anything good in the South Coastal Plains area....aside from the fact that it's on the coast, please post so everyone can share!

Wow...winged already! That's so exciting! It will take forever for DB to get winged. If you have any questions about Oklahoma City I lived there my whole life so I will be happy to help! I'm sure you've already spent lots of time down there since you've been in Enid. Congrats to you guys on getting winged!

Congrats on jets, Jaimi! Too bad you have to stay in Texas longer but hopefully it'll be great once he gets winged! Jesse just got winged on the 5th of Sept & we'll be moving down to OKC in 13 days. Land-locked Navy flying the E-6!

DB just found out he got jets...so we are off to Kingsville next. I was hoping for Meridian but oh well. So hopefully this at least means we will get to move to VA or CA someday! Does anyone know about them getting sent to P'cola for some medical stuff or something right after they get jets? I am stressing that he might be leaving tomorrow and I have no idea for how long or anything...

My son has been in P'cola just over a month for flight school and lives off base in an apt. (he's single). He did not have to live on base. So, if that is true, the rules must have just changed within the past 3 weeks. He was in the BOQ for 10 days, then moved to an apt.

Thank you girls! I would be completely lost if i coulnt talk to you guys!

Post by BaMo » Tue Sep 16, 2008 9:42 pm

It is a little bit different situation at flight school. The Navy just decided down here that the single flight students have to either live in the BOQ's or in Whiting Pines. They want to start saving some of that BAH. :lol:

But, the previous posters are correct in order to live in base housing you must be married.

Post by Britt » Tue Sep 16, 2008 9:36 pm

Thank you for helping me out with that :) If you and your DB are getting married Congratulations!! Maybe one day i'll run into you! :)

Post by waverider » Tue Sep 16, 2008 8:29 pm

If you're married you can do either...as far as I know that applies to any bases anywhere...sometimes the on base housing can be a good deal though...all bills paid. Hope that helps!

Post by Britt » Tue Sep 16, 2008 7:49 pm

Oh Ok thank you so much for responding so quickly i greatly appreciate it :)
So my DB and i wont get a chance to talk about this until he calls me this weekend.
But, say we were to get married would we Have to live on base as a married couple? Or would we be allowed to choose to live off base??
Cant wait to hear from you!
Britt

You have to be actually married...nothing else counts. I've been in the same boat for a long time...we are just going to have to get hitched because the Navy makes everything so difficult if your not. It works out well anyway because they get paid more if you're married. There are usually ways around everything though too...if you have a big dog or something like that you can sometimes get special permission to live off base...DB was joking that we would just get a horse and show up and be like hey this is fine...but where can I keep my horse? :lol: They would likely have to let you life off base under certain circumstances...

Would it make any difference if you were engaged? Or do Have to be legally married??
