    Flying Videos Thread Part 2?

    Check out this dudes Instagram if you're into that sort of thing, @rainwaters27. He has some pretty awesome footage.
  2. Any word from the KDLF drop last week?
  3. So their 31st hour will be in the single seat F-16? That seems like a crazy jump.
  4. Well it's not quite, everybody gets a MQ-9 bad but it's definitely not FY17 good where everyone and their mother was getting a fighter. AMC got tired of sending T-38 trained dudes back to UPT. With bottlenecks at fighter FTUs, in steps AFSOC and ISR to replace the void.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Good god I hope they didn't make all the people who just returned participate in that run.

    BLUE: Episode 25 Pilot Pipeline

    The VR stuff seems pretty cool. I can see a lot of potential there.

    Turned 28... Keep Trying? Or GO ARMY?

    I can't really say what option I'd recommend but as a data point, I was interviewing at Guard units at 28 as well. Ended up getting picked up on Active Duty but from what I saw, it wasn't uncommon to see people at that age at interviews. Also, I remember interviewing and talking with a dude at one unit who was a full-time police officer and flew C-130s on the side with the Guard. Personally I think being in LEO for Fire would be awesome plus you get to pull sweet TDYs/Deployments when you feel like it.
  9. I heard it was a join-spouse assignment.

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    Never seen this uniform before but it looks great.

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    From CSAF Memo, "Already in our inventory and in use, the OCP 2-piece flight suit has overwhelming support from aircrew. This uniform will be authorized for all non ejection seat aircraft and made available for purchase/wear. In addition, it will be tested for use in ejection seats for those who may prefer it over a one-piece flight suit." So are the bags going away entirely? Probably not from the sound of that memo. I wonder if Coyote colored boots will be authorized with a green flight suit?
  13. It's official, OCPs are coming. 2-piece flight suits for non-ejection seat aircraft and it sounds like they are going to eventually test the 2-piece flight suit for ejection seat aircraft down the road. http://www.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/1520066/air-force-transitions-to-a-single-combat-uniform/

    What are my Chances - Reserve

    I think you have the resume to get you an interview at most units, fighters included. From what I have read here and from my experience with two Guard interviews, I can tell you the process is pretty subjective after you land the interview. Sometimes you mesh well with units sometimes you just don't. My advice, you have about 2 solid years worth of applications so I would focus on the units you really want to get hired at first and then as you're approaching the time you would need an age waiver, start casting your net out as far as possible. Getting a waiver can vary depending on the unit so I wouldn't take that risk, just get hired before you will need one.
