    Just wondering if anyone has encountered this situation before. Currently I’m an AMT2 with 8 years of active duty service. I’ve been contemplating switching to the reserves so for job opportunities closer to family, but would like to keep my benefits. However, I’m aware that aviation does not have reservists. Is this a situations where I would have to change rates in order to go to the reserves. Any feedback is welcomed.

    You would have to change rates. There was an AET2 with 10+ years of active duty service going back through A-school when I was in A-school (different A-school than me). Depending on the rate you switch to, you would likely have to go back to being a third class as well since I don't believe you can come out of A-school higher than a third class. The AET2 for example graduated as a third class in a different rate within the reserves.

    That sounds about right.  The other thing the OP will need to be aware of is HYT.
