Billet Night!

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2012) Permanent link   All Posts
Glock Photo Billet Night was one of the best days I have had at the Academy. I spent the entire day (and really entire prior month) being extremely nervous about where I was going. I have always wanted to go to flight school, and I was not sure if I would be selected for it or not.


Billet Night is a tradition when the graduating class is told what units they are being assigned to for the next two years. The process takes about two hours, and, of course, my name was not called until the very end. There were four groups of six called for flight school, and my group was called at the very end of the night. The wait was very stressful, but it was worth it when I heard my name called for flight school! My excitement at the moment cannot be explained with words – I could barely breathe.


I am excited to finally be able to start looking at places to live. Although, I first need to find a place to live near the Academy because I will be working in Admissions during the summer prior to reporting to flight training. There are too many of us to go through flight training all at once, so our admittance is staggered. I am happy with my assignment because it will be nice to have some time away from schooling.
