  1. The A3RB submitted an amendment back in 2017 to count UPT hours towards the 300 hour min for GS-11. So hopefully, the amendment gets approved so that TDART folks can start at GS-11. I’m in the same boat except I was a non-rated O-3 in a sister service. Your reserve LNO should have more info regarding this topic. Congrats on completing UPT.
  2. I’m still slated to PCS next week and start UPT on 7 July. If you have a gap between now and UPT, I’d highly recommend completing SERE. That SERE TLN will give you BIT/authorized delay orders between SERE and UPT which equals pay.
  3. When are you headed to UPT and which base? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Greetings all, Does anyone have any info regarding Banzai Flight at Vance? I was recently informed that I'll be in Banzai Flight. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
  5. If you’re a sponsored applicant, you have nothing to worry about. As long as you have your package in order and have no major waivers, you’re in the clear. Good luck!
  6. Did you apply as a sponsored or unsponsored applicant ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I agree. 18 - 24 months sounds about right. Mine is 14 months from hire to UPT (AFRC) but I’m an inter-service transfer guy with a PPL so I got to skip OTS and IFT. There’s been times when I had to nudge my recruiter and my chain of command to get stuff done so don’t be hesitant to make the phone call. Ultimately, it’s your career, and no one else cares as much as you do.

  9. Is anyone going to Vance in June? Apparently, I’m going to SERE/water survival first in April then off to UPT in June.
  10. Reviving the thread. Does anyone have any status on this "ART to AGR" transition? I would really love to jump straight into an AGR position following UPT instead of doing TDART. The pay difference is significant between the two, especially coming off active duty as an O-3 with 8 years. Thanks!
  11. Well said, thanks for the reply. I think the delay will only affect the folks who are coming off active duty. If you are a civilian applicant, I’m sure you can work for your employer until you begin your training pipeline (OTS, IFT, UPT, or FTU). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. For the AFR folks, the UPT pipeline is currently backed up and the 340th is still trying get seats for folks who were selected early this year. I'm not sure how long it will take for the UPT pipeline to unclog but I'd highly recommend saving at least 5 months of your pay to sustain yourself and your family if you're coming off of active duty. I am slated to EAS in late Jan 2020 and got a tentative UPT date of 23 June. However, nothing is official until I in process with the 340th and receive the orders.
  13. I'm not sure if your recruiter would start the scrolling process as an unsponsored applicant. You should definitely ask your recruiter. Yes, you will still receive your DD214 as an inter service transfer guy upon separation from AD. If you already have served your initial 8 year commitment in the Navy, then you may cross over directly to AFR without having to deal with the Navy IRR, all you'll need is the DD368 from the AD Navy. If you still have the 8 year commitment left then you will have to go through the Navy IRR which will require you to get another DD368. Shoot me a message if you have any questions. I recently went through the inter service transfer process as an AD Marine (dark side) to AFR myself. I am just waiting to EAS from the Corps and to be gained by the 340th.
  14. Has any recent UPT selectees for AFRC gotten a UPT date? I was picked up on the June board and am still waiting..
  15. I think we all are in the same boat. I’m a Reserve applicant and the 340th still hasn’t received the dates from the Big Blue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
