    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    That’s straight from this board’s PSDM...

    Does anyone have a timeline for an RPA select off the AD board? RPA selects are the oddballs as they stay at their current base and go to MFS, IFT, and URT as out and back TDYs.

    Typically the wing execs will see those releases before the Sq CCs see them. The early release goes to the wing CC’s .org box, and the wing exec will coordinate the notification of the other CCs. It wouldn’t hurt to have your CC give your wing exec a call and explain that he’ll be gone and give an alternative path to notify you while he’s out.

    I just have it set to send me an email anytime there’s a new post in this thread. That eliminates a lot of fruitless clicking.

    The PSDM said that short notice assignments could be generated as early as January. However, I don’t know if that means you have to report in January or if you just get the RIP in January.

    What’s the O/U on notifications before Xmas?

    The stamp on your physical should say something like “IFC 1 pending successful completion of MFS.” Pilot and RPA selects have to go to WPAFB for MFS to complete the IFC. CSO and ABM selects typically do not have to go to MFS.

    Last year there were 5 or 6 selects from the same wing, so somebody’s gotten picked up with that 6/X applicants strat.

    I was also the only applicant at my base and was the 1/1 by default. However, it was a small air base wing without an Ops mission so that was probably a contributing factor.

    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.

    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!

    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...

    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.
  15. 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?
