The reason I am looking at other options is that I am on the new Pilot course for Avn tech and as it seems right now who knows what our quals will be when we leave here. they are not even finished writing the course and are slowing us down so they can keep up. and what materiel they do have is something to be desired. It is a cut and paste job from the old course and it is a very poor cut and paste job. this is not to say it won't be an excellent course in a few years but not right now. I really have little if no faith in the airforce as a teaching institution from what i have seen, as they seem to teach well away from what others are doing in the aviation world. it would have been more feasable for them to have sent us to civie school and get us Dot approved then bring us back and train us on wpns systems and such, then post us to our units. It is another case of a very few people holding the reins and putting their personalle opinons, wants and egos before the actual training needs and skills that are required. yes most of the instructors feel the same way and that is a very sad state of affairs.
at this point in time I am looking at mse op, ammo tech, or veh tech, as possible trades to go into.
