  1. PRF Recommendations

    The unit is picking up a Navy O-3, now AF O-3, with prior Army enlisted time. AF major board this year. No AF OPR or training reports, won't have either before board. Their options?
  2. Pilot shortage/FWQ

    With this major shortage of pilots that the AF is currently dealing with, is there any hope of a FWQ course or equivalent ever returning? How about a transfer from Army C-12's? I know this topic has been covered before but info changes over time.
  3. Road to becoming an Army Pilot

    Was interested in becoming an Army Pilot by going through ROTC. Anyone know the process to become a pilot in the Army??
  4. Hey Everyone, There's a wealth of information on this forum but unfortunately this question hasn't been specifically addressed: what is the timeline for someone transitioning off of active duty to get hired at a Guard/Reserve unit for UPT? How far out will the hire someone or hold a slot (I realize mileage may vary depending on the unit)? I'll turn 29 in November 2018. My service commitment ends mid-March 2019 (I can take 60 days of terminal leave mid-January if that matters). That means I'll need to go OTS + UPT without age waivers all in about 8 months ... pretty tight timeline. I've read about the ANG being more flexible with age and stories about Army rotary-wing guys having their aeronautical badge converted thus nullifying the age limit. Regardless, I don't want to count on age waivers, exceptions to policy, etc., to make it to UPT. I figure if I can line a job up at least 6 months out, I may be able to receive class dates that almost seamlessly add up with transitioning out. Am I asking the impossible or is the timeline feasible?
  5. Pillow Fight at West Point

    This is just bizarre... Especially the part where the Army says it stands by the tradition. I'm pretty sure the AF would conduct an investigation, confiscate all the cell phones, fire a few squadron commanders, and require annual Pillow Fighting CBT training.
  6. If this is in the wrong forum feel free to move it. I just wanted to get some opinions. I am prior service ANG and have been invited to 4 interviews this year at cargo units and one with the 106th Rescue Wing, but haven't received any invites for FW's yet. I have the option to switch to a local Army National Guard unit and fly the LUH-72 Lakota's or HH-60's. I just turned 28 and I am trying to weigh the pro's and con's of switching services. Anyone familiar with the process or have any input? Anyone know of any units (other than the 104fw and those on the Guardreservejobs website) still accepting packets?
