RPA career field information (also known as Remotely Piloted Vehicle, Unmanned Aerial System, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). Post information, questions, gouge; value-added posts ONLY, others will be deleted.
I enjoy this topic very much. Thanks for keeping it updated. I wonder if AFPC will provide the same information for the recently updated SRB for the enlisted in the distressed careerfields. Would be interesting to compare the take rates between the two separate, but different, programs.
Multiple PT test failures. Consider gaining weight to keep things plausible. 4 Fails could be accomplished in 9 months if you take the full 90 days between retakes. There's no separation pay if you go that route.
We just had a guy twice passes over 11F who was offered continuation. He denied it and is separating almost a year earlier than his UPT ADSC.
I am wondering if denying a promotion is treated the same or if they make you stay till the bitter end of your UPT ADSC.
Not that it matters, but for me I was happily serving until I was called in and told by my Commander that my career field and year group was overmanned back in 2014 and I should be prepared for the possibility of not having a job in the Air Force from the RIF. I took a long shot and applied for a job making around $200k a year and after almost a year and a half of interviews, was offered the gig. By this time the Air Force has decided that I am vital to the organization, finishes the VSP/RIF option in 1 year versus the 5 authorized by congress and subsequently denies my Palace Chase and Hardship Applications. Just a little background for those wondering why I have so much hatred for Big Blue. Anyone know of any other options I have to free myself ?
Read "A Random Walk Down Wall Street". Buy low cost passive index funds and once you come up with an asset allocation you are comfortable with, stay the course and tune out the noise. Rebalance yearly.
Im actually excited about this downturn. Lots of things on sale!
