First off, thank you for providing such an amazing site of information and guidance for me to chase my childhood dream. I am currently stationed in England with the U.S. Air Force and will have the ability to finally separate possibly in July of 2018, if not then, then officially in January 2019. I will be applying for a program that could get me out earlier, so I’ll be starting that process this year. My wife and I will be settling back in Tulsa, Oklahoma, thank goodness there is an ATP location there. That being said, I do have a few questions:
Lets say I do separate in July 2018, I will want to start training within a short amount of time, given a few weeks to transition from Active Duty life overseas to living back in the states. What kind of time frame am I looking at for applying (Loan Application, Medical Exam etc etc)? Should I be applying a few weeks, few months, a year before my desired start date?
Tulsa, Oklahoma will be where we settle. For numerous reasons, family, affordability, and a Air National Guard Unit, the ATP Tulsa Location is where I’ll be doing my training. Does anyone here on the forums have any experience with the Tulsa location? Just looking for some insight. We’ll be headed to Tulsa this upcoming year for sometime so I plan on getting an intro flight in while were there.
I appreciate all the information guys. Thanks again!
