  1. Just wanted to give a shoutout to @Jon - Trident Home Loans and Lisa McDonald whom I dealt with after that for their efforts/time guiding me through this process. I cold called Jon and he called me back within 10 minutes to help clarify what made sense for my situation. Dealing with Lisa was also outstanding and I ended up securing 2.250 IRRL on a 30 year VA loan with $31 dollars owed at closing (on Friday). I plan to use them should the need arise in the future. Thanks again! Travis
  2. Just wanted to say good luck man, I saw you post this on TPN! Just wanted to congratulate you on your progress I saw you posted this on TPN. Happy Hunting!
  3. Thanks and congrats on PA school that's a hell of an accomplishment!! There are a few 135/C17 units that have apps due coming up middle of next month as well.
  4. Your stats look awesome and the fact that you're almost done with PA school speaks to your academic ability. You didn't mention air frame or geographical preferences but I'd start applying anywhere and everywhere you could see yourself wanting to live. I'm not sure how visiting/rushing units is going to be at the moment with the covids but that shouldn't deter you from applying and making them tell you no. If you haven't heard of em Bogidope, The Pilot Network (TPN facebook group) are worthwhile places to use for hiring/contact info and board announcements. People have had great things to say
  5. I think this is a great topic to add to some of the commuting threads on here, yes? I'd be interested in what the consensus is or how people make in work in a situation similar to yours. I'm somewhat limiting myself to places I can drive to in about 3 hours.
  6. @sartoreabram @CavGuy @Lisenbyjacob the Columbus 135 unit application window has been extended and updated on Bogidope. Thanks for the responses.
  7. Thanks for sharing, this alone could almost warrant it's own discuss thread in/of itself. Interesting times we live in!
  8. Anyone have any updates on if the 121st ARW out of Columbus Ohio and if application are still due on the 15th of May? I haven't been able to get in touch with anyone so far.
  9. Welcome and the illustrious individual you're referring to is @FDNYOldGuy although there are a few individual around here whom have secured an ETP for age. I need an ETP for age also so I'll share what I've been told since we have some similar bullet points please keep in mind I don't have a slot etc. I'd consider getting some flight time if it's financially feasible as this can have the added benefit having some recent time in your log books and it'll boost your PCSM closer/possibly over 80. When you get a slot, this recent experience may be the difference in having to attend IFT or not;
  10. Welcome, Marine. Have you considered Army WOFT? Given you being two years away from a degree @ 35 years old you're facing an uphill battle. You are prior service, have two years of College and have the flight time/rating boxes checked so where you stand today (with great SIFT score) perhaps you'd be competitive for that? Worth considering, IMO. I'm sure more credible people than me will chime in, make em tell you no is my plan also. Good luck
  11. @WeatherLion I think you may get more feedback if you consider starting a thread and following a similar format as others. People will need your complete AFOQT scores, what air frame you're shooting for (anything vs fighter only) along with the information you have above to gauge how competitive you are. The obvious thing would be to continue plugging away to get your PPL and at 50 hour I would imagine you're within striking distance. There isn't anything you can do about your GPA but it would be good to have an honest explanation as to why it's low. RUSH, RUSH, RUSH if you haven't been d
  12. Thanks @torqued Same to anyone who has a spouse/SO that's in the medical field and/or works in hospital. Maybe if I catch the Covids that'll help me get a Age ETP/UPT slot within the Guard/Reserves. By any means necessary😁 #Noshame
  13. I'm not an expert nor did I stay at holiday in express last night I do have a perspective as FF/Paramedic on a transporting unit. Two people on my department are already in quarantine, I've already donned the PPE twice in less than two 24 hour shifts in an area with 30 confirmed cases as of yesterday. We can't wear N95s when we go into a nursing home for the 217th time for the day to take additional precautions for the immunocomprimised/elderly that reside there due to playing the numbers game. I fully expect to acquire the "Kungfu Flu" lolz and my concern is that I'll be called to another r
  14. Just got a rejection email for the 63rd ARS out of Tampa. Congrats to those moving on!
