I don’t think CBP is going to have a problem filling slots for the foreseeable future.

the security of a GS-13 and/or GS-14 federal government flying job, with full retirement at age 50 and after (years of service, etc dependent), top quality health insurance, etc. indeed may be "back in style" soon.

For some it has always been in style.
Everything is a trade off.
Every decision a risk/benefit analysis.
Then the CRAZY 8 card is played and luck and timing intervenes.
Not until the end will you knew if you held the winning hand or not.

Please pardon all the questions... I’ve reviewed the website details WRT the various duty stations a new hire would probably be assigned. What would a regular work week look like for an AIA and how much flying can be expected? Off duty, Are the agents and their families pretty tight like you’d fine in a military unit or does everyone keep to themselves? What’s the average age of an AIA and how many are assigned generally to each location? once selected for hire what is the timeline for getting sent to initial training... and how quickly do you actually get to your first unit and start work? Thanks in advance.

Goes to show, better lucky than good! Congrats on the last minute glove save, and may the new assignment keep your family fed and copacetic. Life is certainly too short to hate where you live.

Glove save indeed. That is extremely awesome to hear everything worked out.

I just submitted an app for AIA. I was in hopes to go to a specific 135 Operation but because of all of this corona, it doesn't look like anything will happen soon. Does anyone know if they opened PR back up for new hires? Also, are Mcallen and Laredo still Aircraft only locations? I have always wanted to do something LE on the federal side. Does anyone know if maybe down the road, I wanted to switch agencies for any reason (in DOJ or DOS), if AIA could help me qualify to be a pilot in those agencies?
