  1. Anybody happen to confirm how to submit to the Nebraska -135’s, is it via email or mailing in a hard copy? The posting reads like we should mail it, but figured I’d ask here just in case as an email is listed, too. Thanks as always y’all!
  2. If there's anybody with info to share on that and is willing to loop me in, too, I'd appreciate that a lot!
  3. Please forgive the stupid question, but that's incredibly low, right? And would it be just as stupid to assume that's somehow related to COVID delays for current classes?
  4. Same for Tucson; best of luck to those selected to interview!
  5. +1 Bay Area flying also tends to be in the 60-70 hours range for PPLs. I'm post-solo and at about ~45 hours total in a Diamond DA40 (btw, I solo'ed after ~30 hours. FWIW, for some folks, it all just "clicks" later than others. It took awhile for it all to click, but when it did, it felt almost as second nature as driving. While I still need to polish and fine tune some things, I feel incredibly confident in the air now. I used to feel embarrassed by it, but now? Whatever, I'm where I need to be with a strong grasp of the concepts, so it was all worth it). I think I'll be hitting my checkride and completing my PPL in that 60-70 range, and honestly, due to weather/fires (5 flights cancelled to start September), instructor availability, crazy busy airspaces/local rules to learn/etc., and only being able to fly in the early evenings due to a full-time job, it's just taken longer. I feel about 80% ready for my checkride--I just need to brush up on the weather and cross-country stuff and I'll feel good heading into that...whenever it can actually be scheduled, like @Jester203 noted. I think if I could have quit my day job and just flown and studied for 2 months straight, weather and checkride availability permitting, I could have been done in 40 hours, but everyone is different, and every location can be different, too.
  6. I got a very polite TBNT, but I can confirm that interview invites have gone out for Maxwell. Best of luck to those selected to interview!
  7. FYI, GAANG UPT board for E-8Cs cancelled: http://www.guardreservejobs.com/newjobboard/jobs/pilot-14/
  8. Anybody else not gotten a yes or no from Maxwell yet? And anybody been notified of an interview with them? Seems they’re being super kind and giving a lot of personalized feedback if they say no to an interview this time around, so I’m just trying to gauge if there’s still a possible yes here or if they just haven’t gotten around to me yet with that feedback.
  9. Welcome man! Fellow 33 year-old here also vying for a UPT slot. The short answer is yes 🙂 The fact that you already have your commercial/multi and I can only assume hundreds and hundreds of flight hours, you've got a great foundation. Have you taken the AFOQT and TBAS? Once you've gotten those scores, you've pretty much gotten all you need from "Big Air Force" to start locating units of interests, finding out when they have UPT boards, getting the application/package requirements, and then submitting. Speaking of which, there's a great thread here to follow on that, too: Best of luck!
  10. Thanks for the head's up on that brother, and I'm sorry to hear this one didn't work out. Have no doubt you've got a slot coming your way though man. I've yet to hear anything from them...maybe it's one of those things where they'll eventually get to you individually one way or another as opposed to a bulk invites/TBNT emails.
  11. And to add one more to the watchlist: I know it's only the Monday after decisions were planned to be made, but hey, I figured I'd ask if anybody got any news out of the 357th out of Maxwell for interviews?
  12. Thank you so much for confirming; just the signature it is! 🤙
  13. Last sanity check question: For the AZ F-16 Apps, for the Form 369, are you basically just signing where it says “I hereby consent to release from your files the information requested below?, as that’s the only place it notes “To be completed by applicant.” Or are you filling out the top portion too? It says to be filled out out by the Recruiting Service, but feels a bit odd shipping this having just been signed?
