Does anyone have a list of current flying assignment locations one could eventually get assigned to? I know they're pushing Aguadilla, Yuma, McAllen, San Angelo, etc. right now, but I'm curious where other opportunities may exist in the future.

From my understanding of things, new hires can expect Southwest border, or Puerto Rico, as first-assignment.

, how was your first week back in AMO? You ready for a another few years?

Diverb has a lot of great insight guys, definitely listen to this him.

My wife would visit El Paso and consider it. For any of the guys that live down there, how smart would it be to buy a house there? New builds and newer houses seem fairly cheap (sub $250K for a decent sized house). Any good areas to look at if we visit?

Quick question for the experienced guys. I'm curious about the initial training, apart from the aviation related stuff. I understand there's a specific training to become a law enforcement officer, and then the aviation related part?. If that was the case, is it the typical army-like bootcamp? more like police academy?.
I'm a big guy, recovering from a broken ankle, so not int he best shape of my life at all.....and I wonder how compatible would that be with the job.

Thank you.

you will spend five months at the Federal law enforcement training center in Georgia. Itís a federal police academy. The training is focused on general law enforcement tactics and knowledge. You will leave the academy trained to enforce immigration, customs and many other federal laws. You do t have to be in great shape to pass, but you will be participating in exercise, tactics and police scenarios on a Daily basis. This is a law enforcement position.

im not saying it was Marine Boot Camp or anything but you guys definitely has some serious PT requirements and hand-to-hand training (grappling) didnít you? One of the major reason I didnít pursue CBP after retirement was that I couldnít physically past my last USMC PFT (I could do the BFT). And I assumed that with my medical condition I wouldnít be able to pass the physical requirements of the FLETC. Can you expand on some of the current physical requirements?

The PT isnít difficult by any measure. Having said that, most injuries occur during grappling or training sessions. Grappling is usually done at 20-50 percent effort depending on the student. I saw several people sent home for injuries from arrest technique training.

It really sounds like a great experience, but I guess this ankle of mine ain't going that far. I remember those Dash 8 in Puerto Rico, beautiful machine.
