    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    I'm with this guy, before Christmas for sure. They moved the board up this year on purpose, they want to get us moving quick. Hope the crusty colonels looking at our apps at this very moment make the right call and give everyone on the forum a spot

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    Thanks for the help, that clears it up.

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    Have a few questions I can't find great answers on... How long after they announce selections does the FC1 at Wright Pat happen? Is it self scheduled? I also don't have a TS, will I have to wait for an upgraded clearance before I start IFT/Upt?

    Military Pilot Shortage and Aero Clubs

    You can use your GI Bill to pursue general aviation qualifications if I'm not mistaken. Might be a drop in the bucket for some programs, but it'll cover a PPL.

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    First time for me, sent some applications to reserve units as well just to see what sticks.
  6. I just retook the afoqt as an active duty officer to increase my pilot score for my upt app and I asked jokingly if I scored below the commissioning standard if they would take my rank away and make me an airman. He just laughed and said they wouldn't do that. To my understanding the quantitative isn't a huge emphasis item for upt applications, it's more about the pilot afoqt score and your pcsm.

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    Right, I'm hoping the number of pilot spots they give out top over 100 this year... They bumped up the # of fy19 Upt spots by 300 so we should get some of those (I hope).

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    Exactly, I'm just curious on where all these applicants come from, everyone I've talked to has been the only one applying from their base. I'm guessing the big number comes from CSO/RPA Wings but idk, guess it doesn't matter. I talked to one of the POCs on the board and he mentioned that the rank of your senior endorser doesn't matter either, besides the scores I think they really look at your OPRs and letter of rec.

    2019 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

    How many folks applied at the base you are stationed? I'm curious on how competition varies by base to get that #1/x push on the 215. I was the only one who applied at my base, but not sure if that's the norm or not. Goodluck to everyone submitting this week!

    Upcoming Boards

    I got the standard free consult with bogidope to start things off and they gave me some dated/generic information (hurry before I need an age waiver at 30, etc). I've found these forums had everything I've needed thus far, not worth the money Imo.

    AD to AFRC help

    Hah wish I had an answer for you, but I'm still undecided. Part of me wants to be in the fight as much as possible and AD is the avenue to do that, however I know that's probably a romanticized idea more than a reality from what my AD pilot bros tell me. Not one AD pilot has told me to go AD over the reserves and I've probably reached out to 10ish (wide variety of airframes including fighters) so that carries weight. I'm leaning reserves but at the end of the day if gets me into a flight suit I'll be happy.

    What are My Chances for Active Duty Fighters?

    Chasing the dream of Fighter's!

    Well... From my talks with AGR/Reserve units I'd say your package wouldn't get you an interview. But you never know, keep submitting if that's your goal. Your best bet might be commissioning active duty and trying your luck at getting a pilot OTS slot.

    Selection Chances - Civilian to AD OTS

    I think you're competitive for the AD board, but definitely hit your 11 hour mark so you aren't leaving easy points off the table. I'll throw some advise at you though as my buddy is a C17 driver married to an AD nurse... Make sure you both fully understand what you're signing up for, especially with a baby on the way. My bro just PCSd and his wife was unable to accompany him and it really is stressing their marriage, so definitely make sure you both talk those things through before taking the plunge. Double AD can be rough.

    Just another dreamer

    Near identical scores to mine and same age... I have a package in for the active duty board and also an interview for a heavy squadron. They told me the AFRC average pcsm has historically been 82 but they've sent people in the 70's often. Good luck to ya, hopefully I'll see you at upt
