    AFRES unsponsored slots

    @FDNYOldGuy For the NGB, the waiver is routed thru the squadron that hires you, then the group, then the wing, then the state, then the NGB and could take upwards of a year from what I have been told. Many units don't want to deal with the headache, hence the 28.5 age limit that most ANG units have. However, some ANG units are willing to push age waivers. I would just contact the POC for each unit, explain your situation, and ask if they are willing to consider it. That is what I have been doing and the answers range from "Hell No old man" to "Yes" and I'm only 29.

    AFRES unsponsored slots

    @FDNYOldGuy AFRC A3RB (the guys in charge of the AFRC UPT board) said that they will not take anyone needing waivers unsponsored. Your best chance would be at an AFRC unit since the process for age waivers is easier than the NGB.
  3. Does anyone know where the money actually comes from for unsponsored guys going thru UPT? I would assume that OTS, IFS, and the T6 phase are centrally funded by AFRC. Does the T38/T1 phase and B course funding come out of the sponsoring (assigned) unit's funds or is it still centrally funded?

    Per AFRC, unsponsored track to T1s which means cargo/transport. I have heard of unsponsored guys being shit hot in T6s, getting moved to T38s, FAIPing and then getting a fighter unit.

    I have found that there are many work arounds that recruiters do not know or do not tell people about.

    @dsharpless The board in May is supposed to take unsponsored candidates. Not sure about boards after as AFRC has not stated if they will or not. According to the AFRC UPT application guide you need to have your IFC1 medical approved before applying. I know last year AFRC had some funds to send ppl to Wright Pat to get their medical done before the board. Another option is for you to pay the expenses yourself to get the medical done at Wright Pat. Either would have to be coordinated with your recruiter if you are currently not in the military. As for the waivers question, I believe this applies to age/moral/commissioned service waivers, but dont quote me on this. In my mind, if you get your IFC1 signed off (even with waivers) you should be able to apply unsponsored. I would verify this with your recruiter and his chain of command.

    Chances on Finding Unit

    Chances on Finding Unit

    In my experience, scores are a fairly big factor in getting interviews, especially recently. So when you take the tests make it count since you can only take each one twice in your lifetime. A ppl is not required but highly recommended plus will help you with the TBAS and AFOQT. Im in the same boat as you age wise but there is still some time left for you to even go unsponsored to the AFRC board. If you want, I have a current list of recruiters and unit POCs for the AFRC that I can send you.
  11. So this applies for any location... When you are in full time status (seasoning or any other orders past that) you will get pay(basic and flight) + BAH + BAS + COLA (i was told HI has COLA). That is a good chunk of change to live on. When you are in part time status (doing the weekend a month + required currency training) you will not get BAH or BAS or COLA. So, when you are in part time status def get a job lined up. As far as living on base... if you can get into living on base (pretty hard if you do not have a family) ALL of your BAH will be used to pay for the on base housing. Plus, I think that you would have to move off base if/when your full time orders are done. Pretty sure there is nobody living on base in part time status...but i could be wrong.

    Results will come out ~3 weeks after the board according to the sharepoint. Nothing on there for the 18-03 board yet as of today.

    @mb1685 The march board did not take unsponsored. The one in may should take unsponsored again but if you get selected you will be put "backup" list and will not go to upt until you get a unit to sponsor you. This is per the january board release message. As far as waivers, AFRC said they will not take anybody needing a waiver unsponsored. If you want the contact info for the guys running the board at AFRC let me know and I can send it to you.

    Anyone hear back from Oregon F15s about interviews yet?
  15. @Topper14 Does the 121 FS have an age limit for applying or will they consider applicant who would require an age waiver? Thanks!
