  1. Hey guys, so I’ve been keeping up to date on all my Air Guard news while sipping this delicious blue kool-aid they have in the waiting area at the medical clinic and I came across an article that said the AF had completed their re-winging project on the A-10. obviously, the money got sent to AD units first and I was wondering if Idaho got a piece of the pie? New wings would mean they're back in business and not being selected for the F35 is a none-issue. Will anyone in the squadron care to comment? I was curious how things we're going up there, I saw some locals through a fit about the noise. And some other news says another (albeit small) BRAC is coming in 2021 and was just wondering what the future will hold for those guys. I'm a herk guy myself, so I don't have any skin in the game, but I got two buddies in the hog and we were talking about it. Thanks
  2. Thanks for the info guys really appreciate it.
  3. I have a question that I figure would tie in with this. Has anyone out there been approved for a mortgage while only being a partime ANG officer? I've been in for a few years now, prior E now a pilot, and basically all my income has been the classic feast/famine of ANG orders. Even as a pilot (I'm still in training) I don't expect full-time when I get done. I believe between my wife and I we will comfortably afford the mortgage but how would the bank look at this? When I bought a car I just showed them my last few LES's and bingo got approved but I know this sort of thing won't work like that. Or will it? Sorry for the long winded question but basically, has any true partimers navigated this sort of thing? Thanks!
  4. Please excuse my ignorance, but are certain airframes (commands?) more susceptible to this than others?
  5. 2nd this. (Anyone from the Niagara falls unit around?)
  6. Bro, you're already the Ultimate Fighter Pilot... Why do you care about ANG openings?
  7. Hilarious. Original. Totally necessary post. Someone give this guy the keys to a fighter ASAP.
  8. Bro make sure you're getting into this for the right reasons.
  9. Hey guys I really appreciate the info. I’ve read all there is about the airplane and mission that’s available on google but I wanted to talk to a pilot of one of these things if they even exist.
  10. Can someone that has flown this thing please help a bro out. You guys are either really secretive or really busy bc it’s hard to find love on this forum. Thanks
  11. Thread revival. Im very interested in applying to the reserve C-146 unit at duke field. Not a lot of information online that I could find. Do they hire dudes off the street? Also if anyone flys the plane or does the NSAv mission and would be willing to share I’m most interested in that. Seems like a very cool low key mission
  12. Does anyone know how often/how many 60 pilots they hire on a board?
  13. I've searched but haven't turned up much. Are there any helo bros out there that can PM me so I can bounce some questions off them? Thanks
  14. I'd bet they're hiring so many because they're anticipating a bunch to wash out. I could only imagine the amount of oversight that project must have. It's hard enough for the avarage guard guy to prove he's "worthy" of a fighter. Let alone a 35.
  15. In my opinion you’re making things very difficult for yourself. If you want to be a pilot go do that. Don’t enlist into ARMS. You can enlist, be selected, and switch routes, but holy smokes why do that? “Face time with pilots” to me means years of good quality, dedicated work towards your AFSC. You need to sit down, reveluate your plan of attack and go for it. To me it seems like you have fragments of a good plan but haven’t figured out the important stuff yet.
