  1. I'm sure there are some exceptions, but multiple units and people I spoke with before getting hired said that they wanted to hear that you were applying other places to show that you really wanted it. If you're only applying to one unit they may be flattered, but there may also be people that think "if this guy really wanted to be a pilot he'd be applying everywhere".

  3. UPT in less than a year? Damn, you're lucky. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. Can tell you I know of multiple that are in the current OTS class and went to MEPS the right before class started. So it can't be completely closed. Maybe only closed to new applicants? Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. The Navy cancelled months is basic training classes due to sequestration and the manning still hasn't completely recovered. It's all risk vs reward. Yes, having classes probably will add to the spread. But if precautions are taken to contain the virus within the training classes where it pops up, they probably see that as a worthwhile risk to take. AETC guidance didn't come out particularly quickly, so I'm willing to bet someone ran the numbers to figure out the downstream effects of cancelling training courses and that led to the decision to move forward. If there's an outbreak at this next OTS class or make issues at BMT, the results of that analysis might change, but as of now, I guess they think it's worth the risk.

  6. However long it takes to get your AFOQT scores. As soon as you have those, you can take the TBAS. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. According to this, flight training is considered mission essential. So theoretically, it should continue. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app

    Haas would almost definitely be gone. They've suggested that their continued participation will be determined by their performance this hear. And who knows about Racing Point and Alpha Romeo too. If they cancel, they'll have to do something financially to help the teams. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app

    Vietnam and Bahrain are postponed too. If the season gets cancelled, I bet we have 2-3 less teams next year Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. They did the same for OTS too. Today they said the people won't be allowed to attend the awards ceremony or graduation parade. But family that have already travelled to Montgomery can attend the individual commissioning ceremonies. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. If you get picked up by a guard/reserve fighter squadron, you will track fighters unless you can't make the grades. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. Not positive if this is what they're looking for, but the AFSC for a student pilot is 92T0 Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. I'll argue the age part. It's not ideal and will turn off SOME guard units, but it's in no way a no go. I was 27, applying fighters only. I got interviews at 2 of my first 3 applications before getting picked up. The place that didn't interview me was my first application. They said my cover letter was my main issue and gave me great feedback that helped me on the next apps. I'm not saying age is no factor at all, it could have become a bigger factor in the past 18months as the numbers of applications have increased, but I would say it is not a MAJOR factor. It just has to be something you're ready to address if it's brought up. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. I have a buddy that applied. He got word either last week or the week before that he was invited for an interview this week.
  15. Hahaha I have to do a better job of checking the username of these posters!
