What are the basic and true advantages of being a TAR pilot. Is the C-9 still around and what about the plane that was to replace it? The commercial looking plane. I think it was the C-40 Clipper if I remember correctly. How's that going? I'm really intersted in flying and I'm studying for the ATSB right now. I'd fly any plane honestly. I'm not a true fan of helos though. That's why I hope I'm not in that "fitting the need of the Navy" class and get "put somewhere. I'm applying for the BDCP program and if I don't make it I'll just apply to OCS once I graduate several months from now. Any info would be nice. Thanks.
