  1. What pawnman said. Wing CCs know that their #1 and probably #2 push are a lock for school (assuming the record matches the push) so why would they waste the “DA” on someone like that? The best use of the DA is to get the late bloomers or those with bad timing due to PCS, extended deployments, etc to school.
  2. The AvB changes year to year based on retention requirements. Who knows what the specifics will be 10 years from now.
  3. Check RAW via AFPC secure, but I think it just breaks it down by IDE/no IDE.
  4. BPZ DP allocation was 15%. Last year, BPZ pilots with IDE had a ~44% select rate if I recall correctly.
  5. Chuck nailed it as usual (sts). My observation as a MAF black border is that anyone who believes the non-CAF bros don’t belong at the USAFWS or somehow are less deserving of the patch have not spent time at Nellis truly integrating across the WPS’.
  6. You must get your vehicle to one of the stateside VPC locations. Dallas, St Louis, and Atlanta are your non-coastal options. Days spent getting your car to and retrieving from a VPC are permissive TDY but sadly at your own cost. More info at: https://pcsmypov.com/
  7. So on the AvIP front we have the AF electing to pay less than the max allowable by law (Gen Grosso memo from last summer)[edited based on three holer’s comment below]
  8. 17D, I agree that if we end up with SCODs for officers we will have to change the strat system and recalibrate our eyes to not expect everybody to be #1 of something.
  9. You’re preaching to the choir on the work the WS cadre put in. A static close out would take away a SR’s room to maneuver for strats and pushes which will make the tough situation you and I both described worse.
  10. This. The 57 Wg/CC and the WS/CO do their best to push folks, but you can only do so much. If the AF adopts a static close out for Officers as is rumored, that problem will only get worse. We’re going to have to recalibrate our eyes when looking at records and not expect everyone to be #1.
  11. NO push lines should read exactly like they would if the SR was able to give an overall recommendation. They absolutely can/should put whatever strat or remarks that are appropriate for your record. The only difference in the NO PRF is that the SR uses the drop down menu to say no overall recommendation.
  12. This was true for a while but not anymore. I was offered and received a DLA advance for my PCS in June. YMMV though as each CPTS seems to make up their own rules.
  13. That’s 3 Wg/CCs from 18AF in the last 6 months. We (The MAF) need to make some serious changes to how we pick our future leaders. Hint, professional execs turned Phoenix Horizon or even worse Torch ain’t working.
  14. I received the AFPC spam bot today trying to sell the ATT. The last sentence said that selectees will go TDY to Scott for a signing in “ceremony.” The Bobs just can’t wait to congratulate themselves on this one.
  15. Checks... by my herc driver math I’m owed ~$1.1k.
