I'm trolling for opinions and advice from TPS graduates. What did you think of the progam? Where did it take you? What changes would you make if you could go back and make them? Thanks
What you get out of TPS depends on what you'd like to accomplish in your AF career. Its definitely a nice feather in your cap (perhaps a little bit overrated by those outside the community) and can open doors for employment after the AF. However, once you come over to the "dark side" it can be difficult to go back. As a "heavy" pilot, your choices for flying assignments are limited primarily to Edwards, with a handful of slots at contractor facilities (JSTARS, AWACS). Send me a PM and I can hook you up with some grads who will be more than willing to give you the skinny. You definitely want to look before you leap!
