    Air Traffic Control... next to being a pilot its the best job in the AF. Course, I'm extremly biased being one.

    As for being a Raven, if I remember correctly the only full time Raven unit is in the Kansas Air Guard. AD ravens are SF guys that do it as a tour type thing.

    i just cant see myself socializing with the majority of people that take that job :o

    2A5X1. Aerospace maintenance. 4 life!!

    Seriously though, my wife is ATC, and she loves it. Only problem I've seen there is pretty much everywhere you go. Every SNCO has had their spine removed, and they all do the bidding of the one bitch ass-kisser. You know, business as usual. Other than that their only real downfall is their wacked out schedule, which I'm sure varies base to base, but here my wife works: 2 days, 2 swings, 2 off, 2 days, 2 mids, 2 off, repeat. Weird.

    If I was in your position my choices would be:

    Aircraft Maintenance (Because we're cool!:cool: )
    ATC
    Intel
    Comm
    Finance (Because they make the same as everyone else, and all you need to know is how to say "I don't know" and you will have more ribbons then Patton by the time you make E3.)

    Maintenance is a different world, my friend. We don't act like anyone else in the AF, we have a totally different, waaay more relaxed way of interacting with officers/SNCOs.

    Oh, and I'm a C-130 DCC/FCC.

    :cool: ya there are a few maintenance guys here who cross trained..they all seem pretty cool

    i love planes...wanted to be a pilot since i was a little kid ..still working on my ppl and i also worked for delta out on the ramp while in college...loved that job


    i've got alot of thinking to do :o im just kind of disgusted that all the hours of studying, effort, putting up with the BS in class here for a year and a half will sadly most likely be for nothing

    Sorry to hear it bro, make the best of it though, don't let them force you into a job you have absolutely no desire to do.

    Hey on the ATC note, take a look at AC&W. The AFCS is a 1C5. Its similar to ATC but a lot shorter tech school and less responsibility. There kind of the exact opposite, we keep them from hitting each other while AC&W tries to point everyone at everyone else.
