  1. Yea I guess I was overly optimistic. Yea it seems like before the crisis, 6 was possible but most were around 8 to my surprise. I always thought that it was much less than that. The regionals didn’t mention it was that long in their recruiting info. But that is helpful it looks like the flow will be no factor now. But thank you for the reply!
  2. Hey All, I recently got hired by a heavy squadron and will he reporting to training in late 2021/early 2022 (estimated by unit). I currently have a civilian job, and have about 1100 hours I got through being a part-time CFI. Since I have to wait longer than I anticipated, I am probably going to try to get a regional job at PSA, Peidmont, or Envoy (hopefully hiring picks back up in the spring if not sooner). These airlines have a flow through program to American Airlines. Some (such as peidmont) flow through based only on time at the company and not FO or Captain time or ot
  3. Oh okay I understand it now. That makes a lot of sense. But thanks for explaining it!
  4. That is great! So when I return to my fed job after seasoning, I just write a check for my missed FERS pension contribution fees and then the mil time is then added in to my FERS time? Which is completely separated from my military pension I guess then
  5. So my HR department referred me to OPM who sent me this: https://www.opm.gov/retirement-services/fers-information/military-retired-pay/ “You cannot receive credit for any military service in your FERS retirement computation, if you are receiving military retired pay, unless you were awarded the retired pay: - Due to a service-connected disability either incurred in combat with an enemy of the United States or caused by an instrumentality of war and incurred in the line of duty during a period of war, or -Under the provisions of Chapter 1223, Title 10, U.S.C. (pertaining
  6. Hey all, I have been doing a ton of research, but could not find a clear answer. I am a current Federal Government employee working for the FAA. I have been applying to Guard and Reserve boards. If I get a job with the USAF reserves, my federal pension (FERS) with the FAA continues to accrue and build as if I never left while in USAF training. In addition, my military pension will build at the same time (as long as it is Title 10), and thus I can "double dip" and build two pensions for the same time period simultaneously (https://www.fedsmith.com/2013/04/14/retired-reservi
  7. Hey were you able to find out if UPT stopped or is delaying new classes? Im slated to go to OTS and UPT sometime next year but I was wondering how this virus will affect the dates
  8. I would 100% have a plan B. The circuit is crazy this year, with fighter units getting 200+ applicants for 1-2 spots. You literally have a 1-2/200 or 00.5% - 01% chance of getting a guard fighter slot. Than even if you do get a interview, you will have to spend around $800 on flights, hotel, food, car rental, etc out of your own pocket. And even then they interview 15 guys and pick 1 or 2. If it takes you 12 interviews to get a spot, then 12x$800 and you are talking big $$$$. And that’s not counting all of the flight time you need to buy. You can go active duty,
  9. Today is suppose to be the day Oregon sends out invites. Did anyone hear anything yet?
  10. I was wondering the same thing if anyone has any info
  11. Ah my mistake that makes sense. My apologies and thank you for the clarification
  12. Everyone else was informed today that the board was moved to February and they are still going through the applications. So you received a interview invitation already?
  13. Thank you for that well detailed answer! You answered every one of my questions. This was exactly what I have been looking to find for some time. I couldn’t really find a good resource for life as a young part timer and this was a huge help. This info will have a huge impact on my future decisions, so again I can not thank you enough!
