How long until i get to my permanent duty station?

Length of stay

When you graduate basic training, you become an airman, instead of a trainee. Your next step becomes tech school. You will go to an AETC, air-education-training-command base. Your length of stay will be anywhere from 5 weeks to sometimes a year, depending on your job. Average is between 2 and 6 months. Most of you will go to Sheppard AFB in wichita falls, tx, and Bilouxi in Mississippi. Those are the two most common.
