    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    I don’t know for sure but traditionally AD has always been more uptight on age waivers, etc. than the guard. I’ve been following this stuff for about a decade now and this is a first for Air staff to grant a blanket waiver for age and TAFCS.

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    AFPC just announced a blanket ETP for this year’s UFT board. Pilot, CSO, and ABM applicants up to the age of 33 and all applicants under 8 years TAFCS can apply now without having to route an age or TAFCS ETP. I just sent my package in (RPAs only) as I don’t need that TAFCS ETP now. Good luck to everyone and hope to see you at IFT soon!

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    On Thursday AFPC announced that the package due date has been pushed back to 26 October but the board will still meet on time in November. I wonder what the reason for the extension is...

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    I’m applying for RPAs only (all I’m medically qualified for) and need a TAFCS waiver. My package got endorsed by the wing/cc last week and is headed to the MAJCOM for waiver endorsement. I’m in a small non-flying wing and will be the wing’s only UFT applicant unless someone else comes out of the woodwork in the next month. Did you ask for feedback regarding the non-endorsement?

    Unsponsored Board

    Does the AFRES offer RPA slots on their unsponsored board? That’s all I’m medically qualified for. I’m on a remote tour now so rushing units for sponsorship isn’t really feasible.
  6. I’m in a similar boat. I have phorias that exceed FCII standards, however there are no phoria standards for RPA pilots. Is this also typically waivered under the same line of thinking as waivering the depth perception for RPA only applicants?
  7. Maybe the reason those jobs that are AFSC neutral but coded for rated dudes is because non-rated guys have much shorter ADSCs and can punch if offered a crappy deployment. On the other hand the rated dudes have ADSCs that last a decade from UPT and up to retirement if you take the bonus. My guess is the captive rated audience is part of the equation.

    SOS/ACSC information

    Someone in my flt at COT who had degrees from two Ivy League schools failed an OTS assignment. When asked about it the response was something along the lines of "I wrote a grad-school level paper but what they really wanted was a fill in the squares paper that a ten year old could write."
  9. I've known enlisted that stopped trying to make more rank because increasing their income would cause them to lose their WIC payments.

    More SARC briefings soon.

    I'm sure that nips all those Zoo scandals right in the bud.
  11. In medical I have met many Sq CCs that did not do IDE in-res, and a couple guys who did IDE in-res that were non-selected for Sq command. It might have something to do with our IDE process where you have to apply for IDE to go in-res-not via the promotion board picking who they want to send to IDE.

    Gen Welsh - USAF Chief of Staff

    As long as the economy continues to suck for high school and college grads like it has for the last 15 years or so the AF doesn't give a rip. When you have dudes with law degrees enlisting the supply of new recruits isn't in any sort of danger of going away. And I was glad to see Gen Welsh wearing ABUs in the commercial. I always liked it when a wing CC or higher wore ABUs to show that they represented all of us, not just the other bag wearers.

    New BAH rates are out.

    Take a TDY long enough to make it up in per diem or sep allowance.

    New BAH rates are out.

    Remember the rate protection clause. For most of us we're frozen at our 2014 rates until promoted, PCSed, or dependent status changes.
  15. Via PT fails, the crusade against sexual assault, aggressive drug testing, and MEBs. On the E side the new high year tenure limit of 15 years for E5s is starting to claim some victims as well.
