    That's awesome man! I had a buddy in the Airforce that was a mechanic. When he got out, he had many companies like Boeing(?) and Lockheed Martin sending him requests to come work for them. They told him to pretty much name his salary!

    I would say take it. The economy isn't all that much better and jobs are still hard to find. School is a lot less stressful if you're not worried about making ends meet. I don't know what your financial situation is but in any case never pass up a good thing.

    Sometimes people getting out of the military think that the world is just going to open up it's arms and give you what you want, that's not the case. If this job is legit you need to sign on as soon as possible. I would also put out applications to any employer you would like to work for before you get out. It's always easier to find a job when you still have one. My suggestion to any other active duty guys in the clan is to make sure that if you have any high level clearance you put that in your resume because that can get you hired in and of itself.



    Don't be mad. Everything I post is "lol."

    got your A&P?? its a must for this company..

    growing fleet of Agusta AW139s, a medium-twin engine helicopter capable of carrying up to 15 passengers and traveling at a speed of 167 knots (approximately 192 mph). also operates the reliable Sikorsky S76 series (A++ and C++), a proven aircraft for tough deepwater missions. The fleet includes aircraft to suit most any need; from the smaller, fast Eurocopter EC135 with its exceptionally smooth, quiet ride, to the much sought-after heavy twin-engine Eurocopter 225 Super Puma, capable of carrying 19 passengers on tough, deepwater missions. All aircraft are outfitted with the latest performance enhancing technology.

    SWEET....
