  1. IIRC, can't book against FY2020 until budget passes... *at least thats what BETM told us for our enlisted student flighters
  2. You have an eligibility letter. If its your first time its 2.15, and then subsequently they start charging. The VA puts out a chart. https://www.valoans.com/purchase/closing-costs/
  3. On another note, any one know what the current timeline is from OTS to UPT? I have hard OTS dates with orders but no idea on follow on with UPT.
  4. 10 Months. Oct FC1 Jul Class actually 11 since jul class starts EOM
  5. SAT books. It's just basic algebra and geometry nothing fancy. People are just rusty.
  6. Yes, I know of at least 1 hawaii hire couple years ago. HI does a joint board with C-17/F22/KC-135 every year or other year.
  7. Thanks everyone, in particular @SocialD. Easier said than done about changing units as it’s only temporary (~ 1 yr) but I’ll be sure to talk to JAG as well if need be. Ive got a good leadership and will probably drill some months at the local unit here too through back channels
  8. Question for you airliner guys. I will be starting work at an airline(big 3) as a ground guy and will need to start commuting to the east coast from the Midwest and was wondering how travel time is looked at? Based off schedules for a regular weekend drill, I would have to leave Friday afternoon and won’t be able to fly back until Monday morning non reving. Would both fri and mon count as mil leave days or do I need to take vacation? In addition, I would assume non reving would be kosher even though I’m not technically working for the military those two days? I would ask my new boss but he has already been a douche and I would like to know some background if he tries to push back. Thanks
  9. Guard and reserve are different imo. The reserves actually get in line from my understanding and the guard sneaks in is the short version.
  10. dude honestly, just get an SAT prep book and crush it. Same types of maths and english only thing it wont help is the blocks and spatial orientation stuff which i would argue is something you either have a talent for or dont.
  11. They’ll tell you to get whatever works necessary done, email them the results and xrays and then approve you.
  12. They'll call you (no seriously). But on that note, give it like 4-5 months then reach out and visit the unit again to keep the rapport.
  13. Na, VT's last board was for 35. If I had to guess maybe WI
  14. Had my FC1 done in the past month. I'd be very surprised if there's anything about your eyes they DON'T find out. It was essentially 3 days of eye testing with machines, doctors shining bright lights, and more doctors looking at your eyes. Had people dq for unnoticeable eye diseases and others told that waivers were possible for xyz issue. All depends on your severity which I don't think anyone here can answer unless you know 100% the background of your eyes.
  15. I've stated this before but assuming you're already enlisted/sworn in with your current unit, at the end of the day if you're accepted into another squadron/wing, you will need to fill out a transfer sheet which needs to be signed by your leadership and wing. If I were you, I would be 100% transparent while doing this.
  16. http://www.airforcemag.com/DRArchive/Pages/2018/February 2018/February 15 2018/USAF-Losing-700-T-6-Flights-Per-Day-While-Fleet-is-Grounded-Growing-Out-of-the-Pilot-Crisis-Making-Space-a-Priority.aspx
  17. Well you would at a minimum need a DD368 since you are already a member of another unit. You would be at the mercy of your wing leadership and if you blindside them with something like this that isn't going to help your situation at all especially before you have left...
  18. same situation for me, haven't heard back at all either!
