    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    I had a friend get picked up two boards ago for UCT with no flight hours and a PCSM of 1... anything can happen it seems like. She had a pretty tight package and supervision at the wing level who were pushing for her.

    I know when the PSDM is released, the only selects who should know where they are going are those with the asterisk, indicating Euro-NATO (pending they follow suit with last year). I thought I had heard last year that guys find out where they are going via the training RIP.. not sure if anyone else has insight to that. I know that I’m supposed to go to SOS in the middle of January so I’m not entirely sure how that’s going to work.. hoping they’ll let me go so I don’t have to worry about it after training. Not sure if any of the “older heads” are in the same boat.

    Idk man.. nothing against ABM, but it’s obviously the red headed step child of the rated world. I’d go out on a limb and say that 80% of the folks applying would rather not even list ABM as an option. I personally think it should be in its own category, away from pilot/CSO/RPA types. Knowing that you can turn it down, work hard the next year to grow your scores and have an ETP accepted, I’d do it in a heart beat. Definitely more power to them for pushing it and getting an ETP accepted. I still think ABM should be its own board.. but then again, maybe it’s roped in with this one to utilize the existing pool of applicants. Might be hard to draw guys in if it was its own thing.

    We were trying to figure out what APW stands for.. it was in some of the ETP limitations. Couldn’t find anything Not trying to to dig into anyone’s chili, just overall curious what that meant.

    I would imagine someone would post when they know something, but have we heard any updates? I need something to cling on to going into another weekend...

    Buddy from Vance sent it to me. I was under the impression that this list was for both Vance, Laughlin, and Columbus. The Vance FAIP slots make you think that it's just VN though.. who knows for sure. Buddy who sent this to me just dropped slick 130's to The Rock.

    I’d venture to say if your FC1 is still valid, you shouldn’t need MFS. It is my understanding that MFS is done only to complete the flight physical process. USAFSAM and USAFA are the only places (that I’m aware of) that MFS can be accomplished. If your current physical is stamped and doesn’t say “pending MFS”, I would think you’re safe.

    I am not. Since I’m here at Wright Patt, USAFSAM did my physical, therefor I do not require MFS. And since color is no longer tested during the annual physical, I should be out of the woods on that. For me, the CCT was a bear. Being moderately color deficient, ive never had a problem with the CIV tests like the ishihara plates. Ive had an FAA medical since 2010 and (up until taking the CCT) never knew I had any sort of “deficiency.” Background: FAA Class 1, PPL prior to ROTC comissioning. Had pilot slot out of ROTC but was stopped senior year when we did our initial physicals at Wright Patt. CCT highlighted that there was some sort of color deficiency, which I had no prior knowledge of up until that point (i.e. I had my PPL, how is that possible??). To say I had choice words with the optometrist is an understatement... My advice on the CCT, just take your time. Ask the tech who’s running the test to explain what the best moves are when you can’t see the letter. You’re obviously on a time clock with selecting letters, but when it comes time to switch eyes, take as long as you need for them to adjust.

    55 L and 65 R, both for Red. Still barely in, but a stamped physical is a stamped physical. And color isn’t done on the annual PHA anymore, so that’s one less thing.

    Also, anyone else applying due to the new color vision standards?? Curious to see if I have any “color deficient” friends...

    I’ve heard the same. Two buddies of mine from here at Wright Patt had their UPT orders turned back on after the color standards changed. The were off to IFS within two weeks, and were PCS’d within 45 days of the IFS return. It was wild how fast they disappeared...

    Your Senior Rater “should” get notified first. I’d find it hard to believe that if your CC (squadron I’m assuming) is out of office, they won’t tell you till the PSDM drops. Someone should be giving you a call prior to all this. Could be your SR, could be your commander from wherever he is. Typically folks are notified ahead of time for promotion, command, IDE/SDE results, so this shouldn’t be any different. Again I say “shouldn’t”...
