  1. Has anyone heard anything from Rickenbacker? Last I heard was a few months ago
  2. Anyone getting responses from the HIANG yet?
  3. I’m in the same boat. They said it could be a week or two into July before we hear back but starting to get the feeling no news could be bad news
  4. Would you mind sending the POC info for the 301st HH-60 to me as well? I would like to get some information and possibly visit the unit. Thanks for your help
  5. I have not heard anything back or been able to reach anyone either.
  6. Same here, but onto the next! Good luck to those moving forward
  7. If you don’t mind me asking. What unit are you in and do you have any advice? I’ve only recently started applying to units and the 135 is currently my top choice but all of a sudden after hearing how many people are applying I wonder if it’s realistic
  8. Did you contact them to find out or did they email you and let you know?
  9. So I am new to the application process. But I have seen a few bases (Peterson, Travis, etc.) on BogiDope that lists the UPT Interview Board as continuous. Does anyone know how applying to those bases works? Is it worth calling the POC or sending in an application package and seeing when they are hiring? Or does it just mean they are always accepting applications but the board is still only at certain times?
  10. Has anyone heard anything or received any response from the 63rd ARS at MacDill? I only ask because in their timeline it said they would send out invites to visit in March/April so I don't know if they would let you know this quickly or if they may still be reviewing applications since the deadline was only about a week ago. From what I can see from reading here it seems some Units' invites are sent out almost immediately and if you don't hear anything quickly then it's probably a bad sign, but others responses seem like they hear back well after the deadline. Thanks
  11. Does anyone have any insight on the MacDill board coming up in June? I know the applications are due March 1st and I have looked at the info on BogiDope for a timeline. Just wondering if anyone knows how competitive/how many candidates usually are asked to rush or are interviewed. I only ask because most job postings have a very direct/cut and dry list of what to send in whereas the posting for MacDill is very laid back and just says shoot a resume to the email listed. Any info or tips would be great, thanks
  12. I am 24 years old and plan on applying to both Reserve and ANG heavy units this Spring. I have my bachelors degree with a 3.33 GPA. My AFOQT scores are: P:79, N:73, AA: 79, V: 56, Q:88. My PPL checkride is scheduled for February 14th and currently have roughly 57 hours. I plan to get LOR from my CFI, my Scout Master (Eagle Scout), and a professor from college. I take the TBAS tomorrow and then will receive my PCSM. I know there is not much a way to tell me chances without a PCSM, however, if I do well on the TBAS and receive a good PCSM, is that the main factor considered? Or should I also retake the AFOQT? I know my scores are lower in Pilot and Nav than I would like them to be, when I previously took the AFOQT I had no flight experience so I am confident I could boost my scores in those categories. However, it has been awhile since I have been enrolled in school so I am worried other categories may suffer from not being as familiar with the math and engineering type questions anymore. Just looking to get advice on what to do or if I should retake tests, how my current scores look if anyone has an idea if these would be competitive for heavies since it seems most people ask about fighters, or anything else anyone has to offer. Thanks for the help
  13. I am 24 years old with a bachelors degree and my AFOQT scores. I am currently finishing my private pilot license and hope to have it finished by December. I have been advised to go ahead and start contacting bases and units to get information on meet and greets or any type of visit to show interest. However, I am worried about contacting bases prior to being finished and not being ready to apply because it seems like contacting them asking about hiring boards and meet and greets would be jumping the gun prior to finishing my license. Or is it a good idea to go ahead and contact bases and try to make some contacts to see when their hiring boards are and to show interest in flying for the unit?
