    Hello,

    Just curious if there was anyone present or past that was at the air station in Opa Locka. Just curious on what the area was like and where most people lived.

    Thanks

    I'm there now. The area around the Airstation sucks. In a transition flight you are flying over a 3rd world county one minute then you look down and you are over Ophra's house in Star Island. The keys are awesome and pretty much anywhere along the coastline. Married with kids live north in the Pembroke Pines, Davie or Plantation area. Single or no kids tend to live closer to the water, either Fort Lauderdale or Hollywood.

    I'm married with a son so that helps out a lot. Thank you. Is it pretty easy to stay away from all the crime and drugs? I'm just curious to know what I would be getting my family into.

    It's not hard to avoid it at all. Do you have orders to the Airstation?

    No orders yet. I will be coming out of a school and I'm trying to get figure out what I want to put down. I've been considering Miami and was just wondered about the drugs and crime.

    Is Miami on your pick list? You may be putting the cart ahead of the horse. You don't request units out of A School. You get a list of billets to pick from, that's all.

    I've been told by members ahead of me you make a list and then they give you picks.

    You make a list out of a list given to you
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    That's what I was told before school based on Petaluma and Yorktown. I very well could be misinterpreted... And it could be for the curiousity of the instructors to find out where we want to go, but I was told that the list is attempted to be based off of our lists. Obviously needs of the CG takes precedence. I'm just stating something that I was told from a member who recently went through.

    Also I believe that they're only around 25 air stations and his class could have been extremely lucky and had open billets at all the air stations at that time.
