  1. Ya it’s a very different process... you have to already be a commissioned officer to apply to this board. All the paperwork that goes with it can be found on mypers.
  2. Theres at least 3 62Es at IFT right now heading to UPT
  3. AFPC told me last year they weren’t asking career fields for release, if you were accepted you were going... only caveat I think was AFIT/similar program commitments. My career field doesn’t release folks to do anything (there’s about 190 of us in the AF) and I was selected, sitting at IFT right now. But who the knows, there’s never any black/white in the AF... all rules/policies are elastic
  4. Reading old posts, the consensus seemed to be the AD route was the most competitive... I'm not sure that's still true, the number of folks accepted has increased from 14 a few years ago to around 90ish i think this year. But having gone from enlisted, to non-rated O, to UPT select as a new Capt, I'll say it's a long road and you'll be behind your peers and making rank past O-5 will be a challenge. I don't mind and have 0 desire to make O-6 or higher, I just want to fly and do cool shit... but for some people that might cause some butt hurt. My advise would be to get a UPT slot out of the gate if able, but there are roads to wings if you can at least get commissioned.
  5. This board is for active duty Officers only. If you aren't already in, this doesnt apply to you.
  6. I think it depends on what kind of ADSC you have... If it's an ADSC from a commissioning source/PCS/other basic shit then it's no issue... If you have an ADSC from getting your Masters (AFIT/etc) or something along those lines, you may have to pursue a waiver. I was on station for < 1 year when I applied and was accepted w/o a waiver.
  7. That’s wild... luckily I made some bros in the nearby reserve unit, they opened up their equipment warehouse and hooked me up with all the gear I needed and their recent upt grads talked me through some questions I had.
  8. I'm in the same boat... My Wing has 1 pilot, 0 other rated. I have a pubs bag already that I was using while working towards my PPL, so I'm bringing that. I wouldn't sweat it too much, they should have everything we need (That isn't on reporting instr) on site.
  9. Yup, IFT May 30th, I'm driving from alabama...getting to the area on the 27th.
  10. I called them direct to ask bc I heard the same thing, but blues aren't on the reporting instructions. Major who answered the phone said not to bring blues, flight suits only.
  11. Has Anyone heading to IFT in May received any details on what line of accounting to use on DTS? I think we are supposed to get an email with all of those details and I haven’t received anything yet
  12. I’m an older dude, AD nonrated Capt making the move to a jet... current unit has to pay for all my gear or so I’m told. Guess my question is whether I’ll look like a boner showing up with brown boots?
  13. Hijacking the thread a bit, saw an email come down from Goldfingers today saying we can start wearing the coyote brown boots and shirts w the traditional green bag. Seems like that will look really stupid, but I’m heading to upt In 3 weeks and need to buy flight boots...
  14. No one, go to flight med and tell them you need a FC1 and they’ll schedule you. At least that’s how it went for me
  15. Looking for some info about IFT... I see day one has a fitness test, anyone know it’s its just the standard Air Force test? Making sure I run enough to not suck ass at altitude. also any recs on what to bring?
