    Give me V12s, refueling, and tires that can cause more multistop races. I'd love some variety in strategy. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. That's not far off. I had about 14 months in between my FC1 being approved and starting UPT. It feels like forever, but just keep the civilian job, save some money, and enjoy the free time before you're in the books. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. My bad... definitely misread! Like I said, only a few units seem to really care about all your scores, but some do. I'd definitely prioritize the TBAS over AFOQT since you did awesome on the pilot. If you're wanting heavies, you may be fine, but for fighters, I'd try to bump it up. Good luck, and if you didn't use the flash cards to prep for the first part of the TBAS, look for those. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. No, I don't know him and I'm not going to continue interacting with the troll. It already derailed the thread and I apologise for that. I fell for his trolling again, which is on me. I fell for it a few months ago and should have realized it was the same guy. And he's trolling you too now, unless he got hired and fully trained within the last few months...

  5. At this point you have to be a troll. If you aren't, it's sad. And you really think of people with different views this way, you should reconsider this career field. Doesn't seem like you're the type to be able to look past politics and go to combat with a wingman you disagree with. I may disagree with a lot of the people on this forum, both on the left and right, but I'd never question their commitment to the country or willingness to pull the trigger to protect it.

  6. Well you'll be moving for flight school and then seasoning, and I don't know if her job is protected under USERRA (I'd look at the law and check). You don't have a choice about either of those things. You won't live where you are now for the two years of training. Then during seasoning, you have to be close enough to work every day. For heavies it's at least 2-3 months and for fighters seasoning orders are 2 years. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. Sounds like you didn't do great on the TBAS. Everything else looks good. (Edit: Removed since I misread the original post) I'd apply for a while, and if you aren't having any luck, consider retaking the TBAS. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. Bro, chill out. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  9. Don't bother interacting with him. All he does is post shitty memes that add nothing to the conversation. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. Gotta say, your outlook on Aviation as a career is a little off. Sure, shit like carona happens and people get laid off, but that's not every day. You can make significantly more as a pilot than as a Physician Assistant. But the job after the military probably shouldn't be your reasoning. A few things, guard/reserves, you can do both. Get picked up by a unit and go to PA school when you become a traditional reservist. It'll be super hard, but not impossible. But what it sounds like you might need to look into is going to medical school and becoming a Flight Doc. I don't know a TON about the job but it seems like it might blend your two interest pretty well. You won't be a pilot, from what you've said, it sounds like that might be your secondary goal anyway. Edit: also, from what a few Nurses in my OTS class said, apparently the AF prefers their PAs to have doctorates and not just masters. For whatever that's worth.

  11. Hard disagree. During the election there was a significant group of my coworkers who were convinced Trump would win the popular vote, but lose the election and they were already talking about the "serious conversations about the electoral college" we'd need to have.

  12. It just sucks we are reliant on the crooks up there to write and pass a law or Amendment that would take away their jobs. Major changes that benefit the people are sadly a thing of the past. We don't have enough (if any) high level politicians that view their jobs as service to the country. They are not willing to do something that will make their lives a good bit worse to greatly improve the country. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. Can't speak to the LinkedIn part. Might do better to call squadrons and ask to rush or of any of the pilots are willing to answer your questions. But I'd be applying as soon as you take the tests, mo need to wait for the 6 month recovery. The process is more than long enough to cover those 6 months. I went to my FC1 about 4 months after I was hired and and like 8 months after I submitted my application. Also wouldn't worry about the LORs. Content is what's important. My LORs were my instructor pilot, a friend of mine that's an O-3 and a retired O-5. Definitely no big wigs, but they all knew me and two of them could speak to my flying ability. The boss that knows your work ethic can write much better LOR than a retired colonel or 1 star that's a friend of your uncle's co-worker. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. Agree on the listed requirements, but judging from who seems to be getting interviews at fighter squadrons, the vast majority have a better PCSM. It definitely isn't a showstopper, but it's not helping. And you're right, rushing can easily overcome that, but rushing isn't particularly easy right now. I just don't quite understand the inability to retake the tests. Scores are just an easy way to weed out apps when you have 150-200 sitting in front of you.
