This is what I'm having to chose from

Aguadilla, Puerto Rico
El Paso, Texas
Laredo, Texas
San Angelo, Texas
Sierra Vista, Arizona
Yuma, Arizona

I know Puerto Rico has more flying but I have other obligations and a wife and child.

Thanks
I was stationed in Yuma and it's not a bad location if you like off-roading and the outdoors. It's only a 3 hour drive to San Diego/Phoenix/Tucson and 5 hour drive to the Grand Canyon. Cost of living is really low. It has a relatively high crime rate, although I have never witnessed anything out of the ordinary. However, the Fortuna Hills area within Yuma provides a much better quality of life and real estate. I know for a fact that CBP has always been very active in that area.

Quick question for the AIA's on here, what qualifies you for the over 40 veteran waiver? Is it a set amount of deployment days? Would someone qualify after 20 years in a reserve component with no title 10 deployments? Doe s AGR time count? Thank you.

It's a formula that's based on years of service, age, etc. It comes out different for everyone. The actual algorithm is a closely guarded secret. I believe only title 10 time count, not sure about AGR. I can ask.

As far as anyone I can find knows, only T10 time counts

Sorry, it's dumb...

I did drug interdictions in an F-16 years ago. Can't remember what the Operation was called, but we interdicted "fast movers" (fast in all worlds except the fighter world) based out of Curacao. The hills were full of people with cell phones making calls as we were getting scrambled for a mission. If you can get that gig I recommend it!!

Default Updated Timeline

I believe I am in one of the last groups going through the AIA app process. Is anyone on here just waiting for the three part assessment? What timeline have they told you?

For those who are waiting for EOD/FLETC, what timeline are they telling you?

I can wait until Spring 2022 to EOD, but if itís going to be longer, I need to start looking other places!

Iím hoping the airlines start hiring and that helps clear out the wait.

Thanks in advance for sharing!

When I spoke with AMO Applicant Care a few weeks ago, they said that since FY21 hiring goals were met way early, funds were shifted elsewhere. They are expecting to start the assessments again in Oct with the beginning of FY22 and the associated funds.

What I donít know is how many assessments are ahead of me and how many can they conduct each month.
