Well, I just found out today that I have been assigned an "add-on school" here at fort rucker. I will be in an "Aircraft Life Support Equipment" (ALSE) class for five weeks beginning February 27th. It is not uncommon for graduating students to get these classes. It enables us to get to our new unit with additional skills, beyond flying.
I am bummed that I going to be spending an extra 5 weeks in Alabama but, as usual, I have little choice.
