    Getting bored with the airline life

    Age is a factor. That being said I know a guard and a reserve guy, both fighter, who got age waivers in the last year. They were just over the limit (30) by less than a year at the start of UPT however. You'd probably be at least 33 before you'd start UPT with the standard Interview/Paperwork/OTS wait time. Still doable I'd say, although I don't have much knowledge of age waivers beyond just knowing a couple guys who got one. I'd blast apps out to everyone and see what bites.

    TFOT seats question

    Can’t speak to the breakdown of allocations per class, but I just got a slot in one of the classes in January 2019 this week and I’m ANG. So.. not booked through 2020 for the ANG as far as I can tell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I wouldn’t sweat the MEPS depth perception test. I failed it at MEPS and passed it for my flight physical. I know many in the same boat. Can’t speak to the hearing issue. You can find the waiver info (for the flight physical at least) in the Wright Pat Waiver Guide
  6. They wouldn’t. At least to my knowledge. I’m saying you can submit all your stuff to get dates for both prior to the FC1 being stamped by AETC. I’ve been waiting 4 months for my FC1 which I did this week. They could have submitted my commissioning package to allow it to route concurrent with my 4 month wait for the FC1. Instead they are just now submitting (or attempting to) the package with the wait time for routing now in series with the wait for the FC1 essentially doubling the amount of time it could have all been done in.
  7. The required documents needed to be sent to NGB are in the “Line- Officer Appointment Checklist. Not sure where to find it online but if you PM me an email address I can send you the copy I have. As far as confirmation from NGB.... “Officer appointment packages do not include the FC1!!! PLEASE DO NOT hold up the package waiting for the FC1.”
  8. I think I’m on my 6th attempt to get it through state HQ without a clerical error. Can’t speak to what the NGB does but it’s probably as inefficient as you would think. Also... because we spoke about it earlier. Don’t need an FC1 to get processed for training dates. Confirmed that directly with NGB.
  9. Per the NGB/A1 checklist + AFI36-2005 all that’s required is a commissioning physical. Which is why I was kind of hopeful they’d be able to at least assign me a date for after my FC1 sometime during the past 3 months. No such luck.
  10. My FC1 is already scheduled for next week. I was just seeing if the ability exists to have dates assigned by NGB before they had an approved FC1 in hand. Been a 3.5 month wait for an FC1 and was hoping they’d be able to get me into one of the June OTS classes but I figure that possibility is dissolving as we progress through May

    OTS/ OCS chances and questions

    Depends Yes Yes You’ll find everything you’re looking for already posted.

    OTS/ OCS chances and questions

    You can apply for both at the same time. You’ll for sure get a Navy slot. You’ll probably get an AF active duty slot. This is coming from someone who got a Navy OCS pilot slot in college and left it for an ANG UPT slot. My advice? Apply to the ANG/Reserves. It’s a good deal.
  13. I’ll put my progress out for reference. Interview - Sept 2016 MEPS - Oct 2017 Swear in - Jan 2018 FC1 - May 2018 Package sent to NGB - May 2018 A question to the masses... has anyone been able to get OTS dates (as in a date assigned) prior to having your FC1 stamped off? Or is it a mandatory that it needs to be approved prior to NGB handing out OTS/UPT dates?

  15. You don’t have to do ASVAB. I’d brief them accordingly that you are not taking it.
