I just talked and "saw" Stephen and Angela on a Skype call. It was so much fun. Does anyone here know much about Skype? I'm kind of feeling my way. I told them that when Stephen's dad was in Nam, he called me on Christmas. Every other communication was a letter. How things have changed! I think they're thinking "Stone Age!"

Flyboymom-- It's a date . We'll get together after the first of the year.

Navymominohio-- some of the kids waiting get "staff jobs". Only when you are waiting for API. Conor's job was to issue the new Ensigns an email address. I don't know why they need another email address, but that's what he did for about 5 hours a week. They have to wait for months between every stage of aviation training.


Sandy-- Good luck to Stephen deploying to Japan. Even tho you know he's been well trained, you can't help but worry. Bring it here, we're always listening.

Kathy B -- great article.

Hello--I'm Janis in Ohio. Son on his way to Pensacola to wait to class up for API. Any ideas what these new ensigns do while they're waiting for their first class (IFS or API)? It sounds like it could be months before his classes begin...nice for him but as a taxpayer, I'd hope that this rather large group of SNAs-to-be have something useful to actually DO while they wait!

My son is leaving for his first deployment tomorrow. He's headed to Japan. I can hear the tension in his voice, but I know he's well prepared, and it's another step for all of us.

Leslie - This is Kat, otherwise known as flyboymom. You're right, New Smyrna is less than two hours away from Clermont. We're close to the intersection of Rt. 27 and Hwy 50.
I would love to get together sometime! Maybe after 1st of the year? We'll probably all be busy getting ready for the holidays during December. Will you have all of your sons home?

Hi ladies - home from Norfolk and seeing Rachel. We did an early weekend thing (Tues - Fri) as we have a wedding in Frankenmuth today. Got to spend 2 hours in the 53 sim and OMG is it hard!!!!! I have newfound respect for what these kids do! Rachel was quoted in local paper article about remembering our troops over the holidays. Check it out at http://sourcenewspapers.com/articles/2009/11/28/news/doc4b1011d14d3...

Chris - congrats to Erin!!!
Andrea - Glad to hear Sarah winged and I know you loved every minute :)
Jane - I'm so glad Brian has helos. :)

flyboymom -- I live sortof near you. New Smyrna Beach. What do you think? An hour and a half away? I'd love to meet in the middle sometime. Or, come on over to the beach !! Isn't Clermont just off Hwy 50? I don't know of anyone else near us.

A reminder to newbie's. go to the discussion section and look up stages of aviation training on page 2. It goes through the stages and a lot of the lingo is there. I even printed it out to refer to.

Are there any aviation Moms located in the Orlando/Central Florida area? I live in Clermont and would love to touch base with other Moms nearby!

Hi everyone,
So I am learning all the time also. The RAG is the replacement air group. Andrew will be training in Norfolk to replace a squadron on a carrier that will be losing aviators through a variety of reasons. ( finishing commitment, becoming instructors etc.) I feel like he is in our own backyard from Texas to Virginia- and his little sister is in college in PA so they are both happy about that. I think he will be feeling a lot better once SERE's is over and he his home for Christmas. He is driving up to Maine Sunday. Please remember all of our aviators as they go through this difficult training simulating "downed aircraft and capture". Thank you all for your support. Although I am not a frequent writer I enjoy learning from all of you.
Leslie,-- you have a great sense of humor!!
Jane,-- I'll talk with you soon.
