  1. Guess we gotta wait for the all gay eagle squadron next
  2. Be honest, should I just expect an Elizabeth Warren win and stockpile guns and ammo so I'm not disappointed? That way if Trump wins again its a win win.
  3. Hey guys, There is so much info going around on this topic and I do not know what the correct policy is. I thought the new policy was pilot applicants in the AD, Guard, and Reserve could join up to age 33. Is this true? Could you post the source for this? Just don't want to give others bad info.
  4. I'll post it here too. Tired of seeing Hornets in motivational fighter pilot videos? Me too, that's why I made this. For all yall in the thick of it, keep pushing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlXt5KhLPdo
  5. If you need a little motivation or inspiration https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlXt5KhLPdo
  6. Do you know what the distribution looks like for heavies vs. fighters?
  7. What is the history behind AZANG not allowing civilians to apply?
  8. I don't know man, I don't think WP doctors sit on here to answer our questions haha. All we have is the 2019 WP waiver guide and it states that any history of asthma when you turn 13 is not waiverable. Before your 13th birthday you should be good to be evaluated and then submitted for a waiver. We don't know until we get picked up and go to WP and actually get the physical. The waiver process for a FC1 says we need to get FEV1, FVC, and FEV/FEC results, medical history pertaining to asthma, rate of utilization of metered-dose inhalers, internal medicine or pulmonary consult, then an MEB. It also states that bronchoprovocation (MCT) is not recommended. It is only recommended for ACS evaluation which is only for a FCll or FClll physical. But because this says recommendation and I've heard us asthmatics need to take an MCT to disprove we have asthma, I do believe we will have to take the MCT at our FC1. Gather all of your medical history that pertains to asthma. Sort it chronologically and highlight anything having to do with asthma so the MEB folks can scan your paperwork with ease. Other than that, we are subject to God. Good luck with everything, you already passed an MCT so that's huge, lets just hope its enough for the authorities in the AETC!
  9. Forgive my ignorance on the subject but the current 2019 WP waiver guide for asthma states that an MCT is NOT recommended for a waiver submission. Does this mean us asthmatic applicants don't need to take the MCT at the FC1 anymore?
  10. Any updates? Do you know if being prescribed inhalers or any asthma preventative meds after age 13 would permanently DQ me? (Paranoid mother wanting me to walk around carrying an inhaler but I never used it)
  11. I think that's where I was mistaken. I thought there was a reserve t38 IP squadron or something. Got my thoughts all mixed up.
  12. My b, I thought there was a reserve unit that you can get picked up to fly t38s or something.
  13. I noticed you got sponsored on the reserve side of the house and mentioned the 340th Fighter training squadron. Did you get picked up for the fighter side reserve if you don't mind me asking? Would you have any gouge on this?
  14. Does anyone know when Boise is having their next board? Having trouble getting ahold of a POC.
  15. I actually just called them and spoke to a POC who said they held their board last year and hired 3 dudes. I was unaware of this board, does anyone else know about this?
