Why is your goal a P-3?

The P-3 guys donít let just anyone into their clique. You should stick to something realistic, like being an astronaut.

I know that the three-year rule has always kind of been an unspoken rule, but I cannot find it in written policy anywhere. Iím pretty sure the 3yr requirement has been lifted.
Make it more difficult for him to keep you than let you go.

The 3 year policy is no more (as per EAC's townhall). Your Director should keep up with the times. That said, HQ only is allowing CAMB guys to transfer anywhere, and SWR only to transfer within the SWR. Also, those transferring within the SWR, such as TAMB, are required to become UAS pilots so that they fly the UAS part time, and real a/c part time.

Writing is on the wall, I am going to the airlines while the timing is still good. This job will ALWAYS be looking for pilots...

No, I am not prior military. I think it would be pretty cool to fly an old four prop airplane. The missions they do seem to be the most exciting and you arent taking off and landing at the same airport all the time. Also, Jacksonville, and Corpus Christi would both be places my wife and I would enjoy living.

I truly truly hope that works. Once again AMO fails to comprehend that soon they won’t have you in your current branch either after you quit. I am so so tired of stupid AMO face spiting.

If you’re trying to move north PM me.

Regarding reasons for any moves not happening.

#1.
The 3 year in place policy is alive and well. Our XD WILL NOT move anyone inside that.

#2.
Needs of the service always trump any move. Ask any pred driver!

And #3 My favorite, "I said so!"

It's been my experience FLEOA nor LER will touch this.

I want to thank everyone who contributes to this thread.

Iím a rotary wing pilot close to retirement and looking at AIA positions.

Some thoughts.

The basic lack of leadership and structure in such a large organization is quite disturbing. These issues with morale and day to day operations are easily fixable with the right people in place. Truly mind blowing.

Is having a TS helpful during the hiring process? Will I have the opportunity to fly 60s again?

What advice do you have for a retiring WO looking to transition into AIA?

I'm applied for a 135 outfit back home and the said I could take a sim ride in two wks after the HR interview, I just don't think I can afford to take such a huge pay cut.
Don't give up the pension! You've come too far.

Reading through this thread it seems like a lot of pilots are leaving or looking to leave AMO. Just wondering where these pilots are going? Major Airlines? Are AMO pilots looked at similarly to military pilots? Considering AMO has a lot of single piston aircraft, not sure how they are looked at by the airlines/ect after they leave AMO.
