  1. That's what my unit is talking about with me...go to OTS and do SERE & water egress prior to UPT in 2019. I have my PPL so wouldn't be required to do IFT, but I wonder if they'll have me do it to fill time (I kinda hope not).
  2. Upcoming Boards

    Anyone know if our favorite Buckley applicant got the call?
  3. Ad that forcibly takes your browser to “Amazon” iOS

    It’s the “Western Union” ad. I just tested this numberous times, reloading this site to get different ads. The only time it happens is on the WU ad and it happens EVERY TIME the WU ad is loaded. Pic showing the ad as well as the pop up it creates.
  4. Ad that forcibly takes your browser to “Amazon” iOS

    ipad. I knew I had this joke coming, but this is the only website I get this issue with.
  5. I am continually being redirected away from this site to an amazon “ad” is this just me?

  7. I know that if you leave OTS it would require a waiver as part of your pilot package. I have no idea how it would work if you tried to make the switch mid OTS.
  8. Can anyone give recent FC1/MFS Experience?

    I laughed at so many of those questions.
  9. Can anyone give recent FC1/MFS Experience?

    Fixed. I did great on the neuro test, I swear!
  10. Can anyone give recent FC1/MFS Experience?

    MFS only accomplished (finally! feels like a huge accomplishment and weight off my shoulders) in Feb 2018. Lodging in Wright Patt Inn is simple and it was taken care of for me, just follow the Google Maps to “Wright Patterson Inns” (yes, Inns) I rented a car which was under $100 and made things extremely convenient. “Building 840 parking lot” in google maps takes you exactly to the parking area shown in the screenshot earlier in this thread. Park, walk around the roundabout, and then go in building 840. The instructions said to go to W100, but for some reason I couldn’t find it so I went into W105 where the people inside took care of me. We did a red dot test and then my anthropometric measurements. Then completed the remainder of all the tests. Everything was very standard to me. Something I’ll point out that I noticed: if you wear glasses, be careful on the red dot test as your glasses and the way the person holds the device can give you a false picture; take your time and don’t be afraid to tell the person to adjust the device if it isn’t lined up properly. I had to wait 2 hours in W100 (which I finally found) for my Form 600, but now it’s FINALLY DONE! Tips for while you’re here: Kings Table Bar & Grill has a Tuesday special of $2 burgers that are a good size. And the AF museum is definitely a given.
  11. 2018 Active Duty UFT Board

    Off topic, but everyone here talking about dropping a lot of money for hours...look into gliding. Not only will it make you a better pilot, it is fun and much more affordable. And the hours count just as any other.
  12. Need Help With Gaining Issue at Unit

    Finally got this figured out. For anyone who gets into this issue in the future: contact the OTS registrar and they'll forward the issue up the proper channel.
  13. What Are My Chances? Army Infantry CPT

    I had a buddy that was applying last year who needed an age waiver...DC F-16 & VT F-35 were the only ones who even let him submit a package.
  14. Upcoming Boards

    I'd keep the faith for a few more days just to see and then inquire later this week. Also, ignore everything about phone interviews. Go in person.
  15. AD vs ANG

    You need to know if the squadron is a good fit for yourself as well. The way I asked it on my rushing tour was: "What is the typical percentage of traditional vs full time at the squadron?" After they answered, I followed up with "do you see that changing drastically in the future?" They reply then, "How come?" This gave me a good idea of the dynamic and the factors they see affecting them in the future while (at least I hope) made me seem interested.
