  3. Thanks again, guys. That's very helpful info. Now I'm going to take this in another direction, since some breaking news just cropped up in our little family of two... If, hypothetically, my wife were to have a baby while I was at either OTS or IFS, what would my options be for being present? I would have an option, right? I am assuming that I will get an OTS class date by this spring, and that I will either be on casual, at IFS, or back at Randolph by this hypothetical due date. Looks like I might have to put those plans to finish the PPL on an indefinite hold... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks for the info, HiFlyer (as always) and Keydet. Did you have no flight hours before IFS, Keydet? How many hours have you flown since you got back from IFS, or do you mean those 10 hours plus IFS will wrap it up? And what do you think would be the ballpark pricetag on your remaining hours in the Randolph area? Thanks!!!
  5. I'm an 18X select for OTS. I have zero flight hours, but I was hoping the experience at IFS could get me most of the way to a PPL, in case I ever have time to use it. Reading on this forum has made me think this may not be the case at all. I understand IFS is not to benefit me so much as it is to benefit the Air Force. I'm asking here, because I know the curriculum at IFS is different for RPA pilot trainees. Do you know if you would have to start form scratch working toward a PPL? Thanks!
