I've got a big boy job now!

Postby kitekid21 » Fri Jan 10, 2014 4:29 pm

Well, the day has finally arrived. I've gotten my orders to report to Officer Training School for the Air Force. With any luck it won't be long before I'm a fighter pilot. I'm reporting to Maxwell AFB on Tuesday morning, so I will probably return infrequently and with my luck, the wind won't blow when I do.

This is my thanks to everyone on the forum. It's a good community we have here even though we have our disagreements. I'll hop online from time to time and keep updating the google map. I'll be in Pensacola after officer training and from there, who knows (maybe I'll even meet up with Mike Urban)! I enjoyed being a beach bum with everyone and hope the Chicago Kite Crew doesn't lose it's flair.

Thanks for everything, and may the winds always blow in your favor!

Good luck with this new fork in life Keith!

There is a fighter pilot in Madison. I've kited with him in Hatteras for a few weeks. Good guy and maybe a good contact for you. Air force as well. If you need his contact just let me know.

Good luck Keith,

Sounds like a great opportunity. How long is the training?

Adrien...must have been Kyle you met? Yea, we have 3 guys who all fly F-16's and kiteboard. Kyle, Ryan and Jon. Great guys and I'm glad they are on our side.

I actually know Kyle and Jim really well. That's a long story though....

Thanks guys. It should be just over a year of training.
