I have been tossing around the idea of Airlines and CBP and didn't want to rule either out until I knew for sure what I wanted. After reading some of the posts on how things actually are with respect to upper management and being stuck in a border town for years doesn't appeal to me at all.
My eventual goal would be to get to Tucson but that sounds like it would be tough to get to, if I am reading it correctly.
If you have the goods to go to an airline, now is the time. Sounds like you're not too rigid to move to base, that would help your lifestyle tremendously. Don't delay your start at a new future trying to see if CBP is for you.

Would any of the AMO guys on here want to provide a timetable of job offer to 1st duty flight at your unit? I have found a few things, like FLETC listed as 73 days, but just wondering what the real timetable is.

That timeline will vary for every single applicant letís say you get hired in July and start the Academy in August then by the time you finish the Academy the Spanish program get back to your duty location it may be another month or two or longer before you get to your initial airframe training.
