Active Duty USAF Pilot w/ Family Lifestyle
Hello, my name is D.L., I am 28 years old, married with 2 kids, and am currently in process for applying to an OTS Board for a Pilot slot. I wanted to know if there were anyone who is married with a family that could give an Idea of what the balance between work and family life looks like for an Active-Duty USAF Pilot?
Some things I was curious about are:
1.) What time do you start and end your day on a typical day? (When are you home?)
2.) Do you have Weekends off during a typical week?
3.) What are some big Annual/Bi-Annual things to be prepared for?
4.) What are the benefits and/or drawbacks for being a Pilot with a family?
5.) What do you do to help your family life succeed?
Hope all is well with everyone and I have really appreciated all that the BogiDope community has had to offer! Please feel free to answer any one question or just comment as you see fit.
