  1. has anyone else's hiring recruiter for the air guard told you that NGB changed up their process now? They are processing age waivers before swearing in after i have been waiting for 133 days to swear in to begin my age waiver process.
  2. here is all i know. My recruiter uploads documents through a "portal" that is specific to the recruiting office. so the commander does not have visibility on this. This is where he uploads documents and if the records are pulled they can show the status as being reviewed or something. When they kicked mine back, they also left a note in the system for the reason so corrections could be made. I'm sorry if this is vague. I'll ask him what the system is next time i speak with him. edit: HQ is different because that is internal within their state. Those documents are probably floating around different peoples email inboxes at state headquarters before they go up to NGB

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    Thanks! I’ve already been hired and the unit is working an ETP. I’m just hoping to not have a 6 month wait for it to process

    I just saw that as well. Do you know if the Guard will be following suit?

    Probably not a statistic anyone tracks. From the visits I have done and various units iv was in contact with while rushing, very few units have prior 60 drivers. The unit that hired me, I’m pretty sure I’m the first Army RW guy to ever get hired.
  8. You can connect with me sometime if you want to chat

    What are my chances? Civ to UPT: the old-guy edition

    first..."restricted to that state" please go a little further with that...are you worried about not being able to live out of state and commute to the squadron? Or worried about transferring to a different unit in another state? As far as your recruiter goes...who cares what their feelings are. You are pursuing success in your career...not his. Sure he wont "get the sale" but you should not concern yourself with the whims of a recruiter. They are there to fill slots and meet quotas not be career counselors. They don't have your best interest in mind....generally speaking. As far as ETPs are concerned...there is no rule that says reserve gives them more than the guard of visa versa. even a unit that gave one to a guy may turn around and completely deny you because they wanted that last guy...and don't want to hire you as much as they did that other guy. Even then...a unit that historically has been giving away ETPs can change in an instant with a change of command who does not want to support ETPs. Cat the net far and wide and don't major in the minors. If you get hired by a guard unit, and later want to switch to a reserve squadron or a different guard squadron because they are closer to family or whatever...the squadrons will typically understand and support you. Hope this helps

    No Longer Want to Be a Pilot

    do you have any civilian flying experience? If not, maybe go out and take a discovery flight. If that experience doesn't solidify the desire to fly, then it's time to graciously bow out. Flying is something that you either love, or your don't. If it's not for you, then it's better to make that decision before stepping into a program like UPT.
  11. yup, maybe take a job with them if I decide my civilian job sucks and they have temp tech money to spend
  12. With Guard that is my understanding yes. I've heard of reserve guys having it done before swearing in. Not exactly sure why. You would think the regs would outline that whole process.
  13. My recruiter is able to view the "progress" through some recruiter online portal they have. I don't think I will be getting school dates as fast as you did because I'll need an age waiver and aeronautical review board before they can assign me school dates. Based on posts of other folk's timelines, I am anticipating that process taking another 6-9 months once I swear in.
  14. Current Timeline below. Does anyone have any advice about how to get my transfer packet to move along faster at NGB? It has been there since 06May18 now.

    Every board is different. some contact everyone same day, others tell invitees first then later everyone else, some only communicate to the invitees and silence is your answer.
