    2018 Active Duty UFT Board

    I'll share my opinion. The Air Force does not have a shortage of pilot applicants. It has a problem with retaining trained pilots, and rated aviators in general. Instructors in their field are not only valuable for that rated position, but have fewer years left as pilot instructors. They would also be ineligible for weapons school by the time they are qualified, and likely won't be commanders. So by accepting a medium to senior instructor you are really detracting from two rated fields. Those people should, in AFs eyes, go on to great careers in their current fields.

    Well, awesome! I just didn't know what you meant by 15 March board, or how you already knew training started in August.

    Could you explain more about both of these statements? I don't understand how you know already your start date. Also I thought this board was active duty officers only?

    General Officer. That means it isn't finalized yet, we won't find out today. Even if he/she signed it right after they sent that unless they have the emails to everyone's commanders ready we wouldn't find out until tomorrow at the absolute earliest.

    This has restored my hopefulness.

    Yes, the latter is the case. The more slots ROTC uses, the less there is for OTS, enlisted board and officer board. The priority is Academy, ROTC, then the rest. Same thing happened in FY16 when they picked up 14 total pilots from the officer board. All in all not great news since we don't have confirmed numbers. I'm still pretty hopeful though, I think they are ramping up numbers already. They are grabbing pilots to go back to UPT bases left and right.

    Unfortunately that major has moved on from AFPC and I haven't seen any of the current members post on here. If it is released on the 16th again this year we might find out tomorrow.
