As Jimmy Buffett says, burn that bridge when you come to it.

When your front office or hinges ask you what your goals in the Navy are, you say "I don't know sir, what do you recommend?" And when someone asks you if you're a god, you say "yes!"

Yes keep your cards close. If I told the hinges what I wanted out the gate I would have been the assistant to the assistant. For that reason I got Mission commander, instructor, and QA (top job), then I dropped the NPS bomb on them and ate an MP for it. But hey, my bullets speak for themselves. Also, you should have chose VQ so you could have driven the P-3 legacy into the ground.

I'm about to wing out of VT-31 and I also selected P-3s. I realize this is pretty late in the game to be going P-3s but I was just wondering if anybody had any more information about the P-3 to P-8 transition. Last I've heard is VP-40 will be the last squadron to transition sometime in 2019.

If you end up in the last squadron, and it sounds like you will, you'll make transition, but likely not as a level 300. Work your ass off to get as close to qualifying as you can, and it will pay dividends. Granted, that goes for anyone going to any squadron, but especially for transitioning squadrons.

If timing works, and you immediately report to VP-30, finish on time, , you'lll might be selected to VP-46 just prior to their last P-3 deployment, or VP-40. Either way, you'll go through the transition, and should be P-8 PPC by your PRD. look forward to the PNW, its a gorgeous place.
