  1. Wouldn’t count of fallouts bros. We were told yesterday that no new classes are starting at our base. Rumor for new arrivals with Orders In hand is to still in process but don’t expect to start anytime soon. Phase progression once complete is being halted as well. I have a bro that tracked 38s and was T6 complete last week. He was told to expect NOT to start phase 3 anytime soon. Not sure if it’s the same deal with all the other UPT bases. These are Crazy times at UPT bros. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. 135s. I will say that perhaps once you grow into being competent pilot and feel comfortable with the jet, it might be less stressful to be an full time engineer and part time guard pilot. In my previous post I should have stated that the engineering field I was in was very time consuming. Other types of engineering professions out there might be different. An ideal situation, which would require experience in your particular field, would be if you owned your own firm / worked from home or something with an extremely laid back schedule. My situation was difficult because I was an entry level engineer that was also fresh out of flight school. But now that I have tasted both careers, I don’t think I could ever go back to engineering. Not sure about other engineering fields but in the civil world, the pay will never match military pay unless I had my own firm with a constant flow of 4-5 different projects a year.

  3. I was a civil engineer part time guard guy. It was difficult. because you want to be good at both but it’s close to impossible. Like having two wife’s that are never satisfied with the amount of attention you devote to them. Eventually, you will have to decide which wife or profession you will need to dedicate all your time to. It will be near impossible to progress to AC or PE without one or the other profession taking the back seat. My advice would be to figure out what you love (either engineering or flying) and be the best engineer or pilot you could be. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. Not for the interview but eventually you’ll need it. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. It was a bit of PITA. Mainly the S1 folks and HRC sitting on the damn paperwork and waiting on signatures. The command supported my decision since my commitment was over. Get to know the routing of the 368 and stay on top of it until you have it in hand. Don’t just trust the S1 Lt that probably doesn’t know what’s going on. I meet the deadline for packet submittal. A 368 wasn’t part of the checklist so I didn’t include it. But one of the board representatives reached out before the board meet to ask for it. Thankfully by that time I had it in hand.

  6. You’ll have to contact the board directly and submit to the next AD board... you can reach out to the board and get the checklist from them. It took me a while to figure that out and it was really frustrating to have recruiters ignore me for being an Army Pilot. I was able to submit to the board back in 2018 but withdrew my application due to a job offer with a ANG unit. You’ll need a DD368 as well. Good luck. Cheers
  7. The average has been 18 to 24 months from hired to UPT for the longest I can remember. It sucks, but all you can do is be a good bro, learn about your unit and the mission and try to get an idea of what life will be like for seasoning. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  10. What UPT base are you out of? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. You’ll skip the ARB process, that might as well be blessing. If you have your PPL already, you’ll be able to skip IFT and jump straight into UPT. Im hearing 3-4 months for FC1s. The wait is longer during the summer months due to the rotc cadet rush. You could go to WP and your own dime and time to speed up the process. I did it that way it it didn’t really help me much. Best to coordinate that with the hiring unit. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. Your HARM can call A3 at NGB to get a feel if you’ll have to wait until FY21 or if A3 is still hoping to get a couple more slots here and there Before the year is over. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. Sup bros. Off topic here but how long is tanker school after UPT? I am hearing 3 months to 6 months. Also death by simulator except for 3 actual flights. Is it a PCS or TDY move? Can y’all shed some light. Thanks! I meet some tanker bros from mindenhall at KAF a while ago. They had plenty of cool stories of Europe TDYs. For the most part, I felt like the bros with wife and kids couldn’t wait to rotate back stateside. The single dudes were having a blast for sure.

  14. False... but it was a big cut. ANG had allocated funds for 150 slots. 19th AF (big blue) only approved about 90. Maintenance all across UPT bases was the main reason. Excess in students = un attainable maintenance cycles. Also AD and AFRC saw a decrease in pilot slots for FY20. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. Don’t call. Wait until the interview. A face to face explanation will probably go father than a phone call. Easier said than done, but if a waiver of any sort is required, get familiar with the regulation if able. It will be easier to discuss if you know what needs to happen and have a plan to move forward with the hiring process. Since the incident is legal related, I think the only person that might look into it will be the security clearance rep at the unit. Good luck man!
