    We will getting orders soon to AET A school, I was wondering if anyone can recommend any air stations to me? Why did you like it there? Is it a big station? Family friendly? How far away is it from shopping, schools ect?

    Just would like to get a idea of any good stations to look out for or pick!

    Thanks

    I loved Kodiak a lot more after I left. That doesn't actually sound like a great plug for the station does it?!?! LOL But it is. Kodiak is safe, it is secure, the family there is terrific. The base has every amenity you would need and town isn't that far away if you need extra. It felt claustrophobic at first, it's an island and there is no way off if you can't afford a flight. My ex was a non-rate when we started there... flying to Anchorage, hotel, food, rent car it was all an expense I couldn't easily justify. It got easier as Jimmy moved up in rank to pick a weekend to go. Then it wasn't as bad and cabin fever didn't seem to set in as quickly. If I had the chance and the employment opportunity, I would go back there tomorrow! It is absolutely gorgeous and like I said, small town living is wonderful! The gym wasn't quite what it is now when we were there but if you want some great outdoor exercise, we would walk the piers. Up & down each one, looking at the boats, talking to the fisherman, nice stretch of the legs. I really didn't realize how much I adored Kodiak until I lived some place else.

    At some point in the career, I would say it should be on a dream sheet.

    Air Station Atlantic City N.J. (KACY) is co-located with the FAA technical center (large facility) and an air national guard unit (F-16's, etc.) and relatively close to several major cities and some prime vacation spots. Personnel from there also pull duty down in the Washington D.C. area on a rotating basis so you'll actually have a chance to get familiar with two major metro areas.

    What airframe? Do you want a big station, small station? Large city or small city? I have been to just about every air station in the CG and they are all good. It all depends on what you think is important in a duty location.

    Air Sta Clearwater!!

    Yeah, hot humid summers but during the fall/winter it is so breezy and comfortable. It is a nice area, cost of living is reasonable too. Lots of things to do and lots of events go on!
