  1. North Korea is about to get rekt.
  2. What ever happened to those pilots anyway?
  3. I've heard that the official answer is no, but to try anyway.
  4. Whoops - guess I was thinking of unit(s) like Ft. Wayne that were under consideration but didn't happen.
  5. Best of both worlds! A couple of my friends did that and it worked out fine.
  6. Funny how this thread is still relevant and very timely. Still waiting on dates 1.5 years later! Although at this point we're 50% considering just selling our house and experiencing the adventure together.
  7. Ah, the dreaded 24 wheel landing.
  8. You never know until you try.
  9. That is a legitimate concern. I interviewed at an A-10 unit a few years ago that was sequestered and shut down like a month after I interviewed. I was given the opportunity to fly UAV's which I respectfully declined and probably 90% of the pilots bailed for other manned units. Other A-10 units have switched to MC-12's I believe. Both are cool options if that is what you are interested in, but just be aware of the possible outcomes if you do manage to get hired by an A-10 unit. It will still be super competitive regardless. Kiloalpha's advice is on point, by the way.
  10. What do you think the endgame is here? It seems like things are on a steep downward trajectory and I think a certain number of candidates who do their homework here and elsewhere will decide not to subject themselves to it which will only accelerate the issue. I'd like to remain optimistic (naive?) that things could work themselves out in a few years. On a related note, it would be nice if the AF would pay out my travel voucher from 14 months ago!
  11. You've got until you're about 28.5 until you start having age related setbacks. So push hard over the next 3.5 years, get some good experience, and hopefully get selected before then. It is still possible after 28.5 but about 50 times harder to get a unit to talk to you. You need to get those AFOQT and PCSM scores way up...hopefully into the 90's.
  12. Looks like a tweet mated with an F-18 and not in a good way.
  13. This must be old news. I was originally selected by a fighter unit a few years ago and I'm actually not cool believe it or not. The unit ended up getting sequestered. I guess once they figured out the goof they had to shut the unit down just to be safe.
