Was that at Lowry? IIRC the PMEL school was there before it was closed...

How long was it?

It was at Lowry. 33 weeks as I remember (1232 hrs). I think B1B Nav was 52 weeks. Fun times!

When were you there? I was in tech school there from 03/85 - 12/85. IIRC our little group shared the PMEL dorms.

I think B1B Nav school was the only MOS longer. The 1st job the recruiter offered was Comm Antenna Repair. The class was 4 weeks (I'm sure 2 of that was how not to fall).

I met so many people from other branches and other countries through my career choice. I was sad to see the military transition the job function out to Raytheon contracts. But it did transition well!

My AF tech school was 6 months long at Chanute AFB, Il. Then 3 more months at my first base (Grand Forks AFB, ND).

Thanks to all for serving in our military and keeping us free.

I'm guessing you were in not too long after me (1960-1964). My time at Lackland was only 5 weeks and it was called "First Phase". I then went to Amarilo AFB for aircraft mechanics tech school and completed "Second Phase" there also.

From there I had my first PCS at Dyess AFB. I only was in basic training for about 3 months total which included the Second Phase time. I was assigned to SAC during the Cold War and we were told SAC was in need of more aircraft mechanics,so that was the reason for the short basic training.

I don't think they do that anymore.
