  1. I was in the same boat off the AD duty board from a non flying base. I went by the base supply shop and sure enough they had flight suits which was weird. I asked my CC if they could purchase me two on their GTC (just because i wanted them, i didnt go to IFS) and they said hell yeah. They arent cheap, about $175 a pop if i recall + GTC approval shenanigans i.e. the RA asked me for an email approval from the CC cause apparently my word saying he gave me verbal approval wasn’t good enough. i got all my patches at aviatorgear.com EXCEPT the name patch.
  2. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Although completely barbaric...a mano y mano fight club type coup could be more entertaining and we could make some money if PPV wants to pick it up. If GOs feel so strongly about their directions then fight me cause i sure as hell feel strongly enough to physically defend my stance in service dress! If they’re passing their PT test they’re fit to fight right? Winner executes the way ahead.
  3. Upcoming Boards

    That. Is. Depressing.
  4. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Nothing shocks me anymore....The more ludacris the plan the more likely to be said out loud, owned publicly by “leadership”, and ultimately implemented. Nothing will stop the US air force.
  5. Upcoming Boards

    HIANG said 3-4 more weeks yesterday...but i’d plan on 4-6. They mentioned routing shenanigans.
  6. 2018 Active Duty UFT Board

    Guess that “case by case basis” rings true yet again.
  7. 2018 Active Duty UFT Board

    Pretty positive you dont go to wright pat off the AD board. That’s why u get the FC1 to be eligible to apply. i didnt go to wright patt after i got picked up in 2017.
  8. 2018 Active Duty UFT Board

    That sounds shady as F... I wonder if that’s even IGable?
  9. 2018 Active Duty UFT Board

    i’ll kind of buy that. There are tons of possible applicants for rated yet Big blue handcuffs itself with dated requirements and in particular idiotic medical standards that they believe are necessary. There are tons if people who could do the rated job but can’t because of trivial hiccups. They do it to themselves. And i personally dont care about the AF eyes...i’m a big believer in finding something you love doing and you’ll never work another day in your life. If that comes at Big blues expensense so be it. I also believe if you align your workforce according to the above the organization will succeed.

    @Pred69 i know you’ve moved on from the UFT boards, any chance u can shed some insight into the process for our non-selects? Why are we turning away dudes who already speak aviation with solid scores?
  11. AD to ANG

    I was in a similar boat boss. I went 0 for 2 officially and like 0 for 6 lifetime while on AD with similar numbers. go reserve/guard. I’ve found having a commission with the TS, FC1, leadership etc. gets u to the front of the line more often than not (right behind already rated dudes). Started applying/rushing in Oct17 and have been 4 for 4 with the unit reaching back to me for a meet n greet invite/interview invite/follow up questions... if you can get your unit to send you to all the necessary SERE courses that just boosts your resume being a cheaper alternative for whatever unit picks u up.
  12. @GDAL i have a DP waiver. Let me dig it up. DM so we can compare notes once i pull it down.
  13. I was fortunate enough to be TDY at Maxwell about a month before i PCSd. 4 out of 5 weekends i was down in Pensacola driving around checking houses the Mrs picked online, checking neighborhoods/drive times etc. it’s a 3 hr drive one way from maxwell so the day gets long but getting eyes on was clutch. I dont know if you’ll have that kind of freedom at TFOT or a car but i’d try and ask for the freedom and if u dont have the car get a buddies go borrow. Worst they can both say is no... i’d highly recommend your wife give you a power of attorney to sign as her for lease purposes...that way if you’re down here and love something you can work a lease, deposit, etc. and sign on the spot. I didn’t do that and we worked the lease via email post my TDY which was ok just, i just like doing that stuff in person. take away if u can sign a lease like @nunya said you set up your move for a door to door vs door to storage to door
