Based on the guys I know who went through 101, a year is wildly optimistic for the FA-18 RAG. That reference point is at least a few years out of date, but I doubt their maintenance situation has dramatically improved. Maybe I'm wrong though.A year is probably still solid for a wild ass guess. Except for F-35's since they aren't taking CAT 1's yet.
too bad, I was there for 22 months and it was awesomeThe time to train at 101 has been cut down, it's not a 2 year tour in SoCal where you're stashed for a year then the syllabus for a year like it used to be. A one year time to complete from check in to out is close to accurate nowadays, but things like the boat can always muddy the waters.
