  1. Why? FedEx and UPS are hiring right now. So are the ACMIs. 3 years means 1 or 2 PCSs, more time downrange, and a whole lotta BS. Shoot your shot while you're current in an airplane (assuming you are) and go test the waters. I bet you'll be ok outside the cocoon especially with $57k a year and Tricare.
  2. None. There is no reset. Exemptions notwithstanding, it's 5 years in your entire employment with the same employer. https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/38/4312
  3. Good to think about things, but you're overthinking. You won't be forced from part to full time without activation orders. NGB is very aware of USERRA and good commanders make sure orders are written to keep everyone in compliance. If you lose your military medical but keep your Class 1, your new Guard job will demand way less time than your pilot job did, so no worries there. If you want to go fly for the Guard, go apply and get after it. Your airline will be there when you get back - maybe.
  4. Get LinkedIn premium for a year (free for veterans, probably current mil, too) and do LinkedIn Learning. Earn your PMP, Green Belt, A+ and several other credentials for the cost of the test. Look at jobs and see what skills they want and find a certification that proves you have those skills. You’re probably more capable than most civilian applicants but good luck proving it with your resume. AF has an e-learning app on the portal with many of the same topics but LI Premium has better delivery.
  5. T-1 then palace chase to T-1 reservist until a major calls.
  6. CMSAF sounds pretty racist.
  7. If that’s what you want to do, get hired by a UPT Reserve squadron and go to USAFR. If you want to go back to your Guard unit in 4 years, see if they’ll take you back. There’s no 1288-type process to go from a state asset to a federal asset.
  8. At least this guy attacked a taxiing airplane. I guess that makes him the smart one.
  9. AU Portal is up right now. Couldn't get in this morning.
  10. I made the jumpseat commute to a unit 9 hours away for 6 months and gave up. I don’t think it’s long-term realistic, especially starting out. If the unit is #1, move to your unit city and figure out the civilian job there. Edit: I’m assuming you’re flying since you’re on a pilot board, in which case once a month is also unrealistic unless that’s once for many days.
  11. My ROTC offering even specified “Electrical Engineering.” Nah.
  12. Don’t be fooled. The Bobs will put any of us on the street to save themselves. Even SWA.
