Selected P-3 out of advance. Not too much concrete info from the instructors on how the transition to P-8s will work. Any chance I could make aircraft commander in P-3 in one deployment before I go to the P-8? Are there any pros of going P-3 before P-8s? Most of the gouge has been that I'm at a disadvantage to my peers getting who got P-8s since I'll be short on quals because of the transition and I won't have time to excel at my ground job. Regardless, I'm excited to sundown the P-3 and be part of the community. Thanks for any info.
