    Hello all,
    Does anyone have a summer schedule? Particularly on when cadets (plebes) will be released for summer break.
    Need to try and take advantage of early flight booking.. if possible.

    Thanks,
    Parent..
    GO ARMY!!

    Each cadet's summer schedule is different and there is no set time all are off to plan around. Also, last minute changes are common. This is one of those situations where trying to take advantage of airfares by booking early can backfire.

    Release dates.

    Thank you 13MOM
    Question:
    Do release date vary depending on cadet schedule?

    Return date locked in for 07-07-13
    This is taking into account summer training..

    Buses start running to the airports around 1:00-1:30 the day of graduation. Lots of traffic exiting post makes it slow going for a while.

    So are you thinking your cadet won't have another break after his return on 7/7/13? If that's the case, I am going to guess he or she is participating as cadre in Beast II? There are generally buses available from major airports on the return date for beast cadre, but not as many time options as there are on regular holidays - schedule an early flight to a major airport for flexibility on the return to catch a bus.

    Also, I'm guessing no other MIAD's or training from graduation to July 7th? That's great news for you and your family! As Dixieland said, the buses leaving on grad day generally depart at 1:30.

    Long summer vacation

    He wont.. He has a late MIAD.. Then 2014 academic year.. 'wow'
    But DS should be fully rested from his long summer by the pool under California sun.:smile:

    Also, I'm guessing no other MIAD's or training from graduation to July 7th?
    No- He will have 6 full weeks.. He / We got really lucky this summer. We are counting the days :thumb:

    Thanks for the info Dixieland.. appreciate it..

    Assuming his schedule does not change - always a possibility - he will be free from May 25 to July 7th. It may be easier to book flights for the 26th and 6th. Traffic getting out of here after graduation is terrible and I know a few guys who missed flights because of it. I do not know what time they will have to report for buckner, but I think we had to be back by 3pm, so that might be a close call depending on flight times. If he leaves late/arrives early, he can stay overnight in transient or at the airport.
