    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    Soooo are we sticking with sage green boots w/ flight suit or will they eventually be coyote? Seems like someone told me the other day we'd be in coyote boots by 2020 or something. Look something like this

    AD to AFRC help

    I was in your shoes last year and knowing what I know now I would have pursued AFRC or ANG much earlier in my career. You get to pick your location, air frame/mission, and have significantly less stress in UPT than your AD brethren. What is not to like? Active Duty may have more overseas basing opportunities if that is what you want, but the daily QoL is going to be better in the AFRC/ANG. If you are dead set on fighters then you should probably keep AD as an option. Getting a fighter slot in the AFRC is difficult and definitely not a guarantee, I'd argue you have equal if not slightly better chances to pickup fighters from an AD slot. If you're more into the AMC lifestyle then you have a lot more options in terms of units that you can apply for and get hired at in the AFRC. Your lack of waivers is a plus right now but that won't last long since you'll be coming up on both age and total active service time waivers real quick. If you are going to AFRC you best do it quick, because it seems like some (but not all) AFRC/ANG units are not interested in pursuing any waivers for their applicants.
  3. ^ Probably the best T-38 drop in the last 1-2 years right here. 7 fighters, 3 bombers, 2 FAIPs. KEND 18-14 T-38 Class only (no T-1s this drop). A-10 F-15C T-6 B-52

    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.
  5. Any word from the KDLF drop last week?
  6. So their 31st hour will be in the single seat F-16? That seems like a crazy jump.
  7. 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.

    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.
  12. I heard it was a join-spouse assignment.

    What's your favorite mission?

    This thread is off to a good start.

    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?
