Hi guys - long time no post (been busy with senior year!). Just a vent, don't really expect much insight on this one: About a year ago, some of you were very helpful when I asked about a career in aviation vs. law enforcement. I decided to take the LE internship this past summer, and was offered a job at its conclusion (a FLETC date after graduation to become a GS-1811 special agent). I put my application with the NY-ANG on hold to do this. I have not officially turned it down yet, but do not plan on accepting the agent offer. The work was too white collar/office-bound (it was NOT a street-oriented agency, however) and I did not enjoy the G's red tape (I was in DC, so that didn't help at all). I might apply for various GS-1811 slots (AFOSI,in particular) later in life, but not right now. That being said, I am in the application process with several AZ law enforcement agencies (city level), and have to fly out there (commercially, from NY) multiple times this year for testing. I have kept my flying up throughout. Today, I get word that the local 135 operation wants to hire me (they sought me out due to recommendations from local pilots). Pay is decent, and should I stay on, I would have the opportunity to fly Hawkers, Falcons, and GIVs. The intitial position is a part-time (due to my class schedule) SIC slot - no specifics on which aircraft, but it would entail getting systems training due to their insurance policy. So, just when I had it all planned out (out to AZ for a little local LE), I get this opportunity. I know I am very fortunate to have such choices, especially as a 21 years old, but it's tough! Here are my thoughts: - Flying is a given. I know I'd enjoy it, but don't know if it would ever meet my need to serve at some capacity. - Local law enforcement has been good to me (limited, but involved roles), and the brotherhood cannot be beat. It's a love-hate relationship, though. Wish someone would just tell me it isn't worth it, haha - I seem to be a sucker for it! - I would be working in the town I grew up in, but I would be travelling a lot. Just a rant, thanks for listening! J.
