    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    Not sure, but he mentioned the forums in the article so it wouldn’t surprise me. “Since then, the video [has] been referenced in multiple military and aviation forums around the net.”

    Yep. It’s viral. I wonder if rogoway got it here

    Annual C-5 Nose-up

    https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2019/02/01/c-5-conducts-nose-gear-up-emergency-landing-at-travis/?fbclid=IwAR3iVEW3tjhcENGdyijKWWSyz6vYdSLQLGQGS_Bot16BHmY-yrAD5_pKE7o came early this year!
  4. Haven’t signed the contract yet, it’s a choice made after UPT whether you want to go Traditional or take the TDART. I’m definitely leaning towards it though. Like you said, job security. I’m not a huge fan of the feast or famine thing. Also I got my dream location up in NorCal.
  5. It’s seasoning followed by a 5 year GS contract.
  6. For off the street TDARTs in AFRC, we’re all starting at GS-11. Can someone walk me through typical progression? -12 comes after AC, and -13 after IP?

    The Next President is...

    I don't think the pulling out of Syria thing is the big issue Vertigo is referring to. Perhaps it's more the fact that Trump has a track record of disregarding opinions of people who are generally considered logical and highly skilled in their fields...

    U-2 Dragonlady info

    I have no dog in this fight because I opted for reserves out of ROTC, but had I known about this, I would've been on it like a fat kid on a cupcake... Just go faip and save it for the people who know they want it

    C146 Wolfhound Info

    They hire off the street but they can't tell you much about the mission. You've got to trust that it's an insanely cool gig... the most they told me was "we do a regular mission with sprinkles on top" sounded awesome but they also said once they have you they have you. You'll be at Duke for the long haul if you get in.

    Unsponsored Board

    If your app package is already looking good then send it off, but I wouldn't sweat it yet. And having a paid slot in hand is a huge bonus. Mainly because units won't only talk to you only when they're holding a board; rather, you can talk to a unit any time and they'll be willing to set something up then and there if they're interested. That's been my experience. I was seeking heavies though so it's a bit different
  13. Does anyone have any updated info on this? About a year ago I started hearing about a plan to introduce more AGR positions in Reserve squadrons. From what I heard the majority of full timers would still be ARTs but there would be a few AGRs sprinkled in.

    Unsponsored Board

    If you want fighters, i'd discourage you from going this route. There aren't too many fighter units in AFRC, and once you have the AFRC slot, they wont let you switch over to guard. So think this one through. I was hired for last year's board and mainly went for heavies. Average scores for last year's board were in the mid to high 80s for PCSM and AFOQT-P. 80 hours, 3.2 GPA. Not terribly competitive. To answer your questions, no these are not unit slots, they are AFRC slots. You'd be knocking on doors with a paid pilot slot in hand. And no you don't need to be sponsored. Of the 8 cadets who got it last year none were sponsored beforehand. You can stay unsponsored until drop night at UPT, at which point you'll be thrown where AFRC needs you, not RegAF. So you could go to ENJJPT unsponsored in hopes of getting sponsorship from an FS but I wouldn't put everything down on it. With that said my buddy who was also one of the eight got hired by fort worth. Anything's possible but If I wanted fighters I wouldn't have done this board because it crosses off the vast majority of options since you can't go guard.
