Hello all,

 

Current 19K here. How much time away from home to time at home do aviators get? I'm at about one year gone-one year home right now and really not looking for the same. Just looking for some hard data on how long I should expect to be away from the wife.

 

Thanks

Optempo, deployments, rotations and CTCs are about the same. Expect to be gone a lot just like you are now.

Alright thanks for the info; when youre home are you actually home? Or are you guys tasked out to the max with details and working past COB like we are down here on the line?

Thanks

There are some other things in between CTC, fields time and deployments that will take you away from home as well.  Stuff like dunker, mountain training, and career schools.  If you're looking to stay home you need to get out of the Army.
