Funny you should ask! There’s a PDF right here for you to reference that contains the full regulations.

Any resident that “finds their own replacement” will be paid a referral incentive. Call for more information.

 

Yep. For a several reasons. Aviator’s Landing is absolutely a NON-SMOKING establishment. And then there’s the cancer and stuff.

 

Yes, but remember there are other people living with you; all with the intention of being comfortable and maximizing their training. So if its OK with them, its OK with us.

 

Aviator’s Landing are just less than 2 miles from the Main Gate. It takes less than 5 minutes to leave the driveway and reach the gate. There is no crashpad closer to the gate.

 

Simple…Comfort and convenience. I enjoy staying at hotels but after about a week it gets old and I start missing those things that I’m used to when at home. At Aviator’s Landing we want to be your home away from home.  And we give you the best of both home and hotel. A secure bedroom, with queen sized beds, HD TVs, with Direct TV programming, linens, towels and housekeeping. But also, a full kitchen, room to have friends over, an expanded patio with furniture and grill. Plenty of opportunity to socialize or have alone time.

And lets be honest…billeting will NEVER match up to your own home. There will always be inconveniences.

 

Yes. We will email you a lease agreement after recording your reservation. Upon check-in, we will review the lease, answer questions, and sign. Because this isn’t a hotel but a rental, this is necessary. It is a standard non-complicated lease. The term of the lease is flexible to meet your TDY length with end date flexibility to account for the schedulers at your squadron.

 

No. You can make the choice of where you decide to live while at training. The most important thing is that the cost of your choice MUST be equal to or less than what you will be reimbursed for. Here at Altus, that’s $60.00 or $83.00.

You get off-base per diem!

 

Simple. There is no out of pocket cost to you. If you don’t have a non-availability letter, we charge your card of choice (for most people this would be the GTC) $60.00/night. If when you check-in at billeting they don’t have room in the inn, and provide you a Non-A then we charge $83.00/night.
