    It's the night that the graduating 1/c learn what their first assignments (billets) will be in the fleet once they graduate and commission.

    Seems like barely anyone got flight school. Is this common? Or is it not a usual pick on the billet lists. Seems like watch officer is the most popular

    I'll be heading to CGC Seneca out of Boston, MA! So excited, it was my first pick and I can't wait to go!

    As for zach's question about flight school, it is a very popular billet. However, billets are given on a percentage basis and you don't always get what you put in for. For our class, 88% will report to cutters, 8.5% will report to flight school, and 3.5% will go to sectors. There are quotas that OPM has to fill based on the needs of the CG. We were told that approximately 85% would go to cutters, 10% to flight school, and 5% to sectors. That being said, the people who put in for flight school and did not get it will most likely get it second or third time around, as long as they perform well on their cutter. I have an instructor whose friend did not get flight school until his 7th time applying. You just have to go for what you want.

    Plus we all know underway is the best way to go ;)

    BUT! Congrats 2014! Keep your noses clean for two more months and we'll see you out in the fleet this summer!! Great job.

    I'll be going out to a 270 out of Portsmouth, VA as a DWO.

    Not my first choice (wanted flight), but I'll get it next time around. And with the pipeline being backed up so much right now, maybe this is the better thing to do (getting operational experience) instead of waiting around.

    As far as Zach's question goes, up to 10% of the class may be assigned to flight training, although those numbers will probably decrease with the class sizes getting smaller (2016-onward).

    Good to see you around here STN!! Hope you've been having fun on that patrol, looks fun.

    Haha, Greg posted that on Facebook, hahahaha. He's made it.... he was finally mocked in a video. He's kind of my hero now.

    Nicely done.

    Congrats on your assignments, exciting times!!! :thumb:
