In the pilot selection forum for the 2018 rated board, @Hopeful_guy wrote, "Curious what effect the IFT issues/backup will have on selection this year. Anyone know if this is as huge of an issue as they make it seem?" I thought it was a good question and would get more traction over here. What are folks impressions on the training pipeline backlog and how many slots will be available for the upcoming rated board scheduled for January? In the past four years they have selected 51, 46, 14, 60 pilots from an unknown number of applicants. Out of curiosity and only questionably relevant, I googled "usafa class of 201X statistics" to find a fact page for each of the last four classes and how many went to pilot training, those numbers are (2014-2017) 445, 360, 345, 386.
Congratulations to all of those who got picked up for UFT 2017. You guys/gals earned every bit of it. Overall, a great year for the applicants. I am starting this new thread, not to hijack the 2017 UFT Active Duty thread that is already filled with valuable information, but to posture for the upcoming UFT 2018 AD boards that some may find useful--organization wise. Again, congrats to our bros who applied for UFT 2017 and got selected, and for those have high hopes for upcoming FY2018, let's keep working hard and charge ahead!
Starting a thread for 2017 Active Duty board. There is an annoucement out on myPers and packages are due in November. One change from last year is that if you are medically eligible, you must select and rank all of the rated positions (Pilot, Nav, RPA, ABM). So basically if all you want is pilot and you are offered something else and decline, then you will no longer be eligible to apply to future boards. There is also a website on the AF Portal with some raw data on the selectees from the previous 3 years. Interesting to note that of the 14 who were selected last year, all 14 had PPLs. Food for thought.
