  1. I am not sure if this has been posted here before. Searching through the forums, there have been only a few, scattered references in revived threads. I have not seen the memo attached. I found this memo from HQ A3 granting a blanket age waiver for RPA pilot applicants. This particular one is for active duty but I have called around to ANG and Reserve units to see if they are following suit. I have a memo from the NG Bureau stating that they will. Up until recently, individual ANG units were making their own call on it. Units that were doing well in manning and applicants told me they were not. Others that had less personnel were following the AD policy. But the NG Bureau memo seems to resolve that. The Reserve is considering age waivers. This could be an opportunity for those who thought their chances were gone. Appendix E- Blanket RPA Age Waiver_Signed Copy.pdf ANG URT Age Waiver.pdf
  2. Rhabdomyolysis

    Any flyers have experience with repeat rhabdo? I'm pending an MEB for it unfortunately with a Do Not Retain recommendation because the flight doc is saying I have the potential to be nondeployable to the sandbox because it's too hot. Does anyone have MEB success story related to rhabdo? Is it waiverable for a FC1/A physical should I be retained? 'Preciate it.
  3. Hey all, I am about a couple weeks away from a flight physical and I got some paperwork with an interesting question. The question was "Have you ever or do you now have an undescended testicle". I haven't said anything yet because I had an undescended testicle but it was fixed when I was much younger. I was wondering a few things in this situation. 1. Would this condition disqualify me from flight? 2. Is this condition waiverable/ what are my chances for a waiver? 3. Worst case, there is about an inch long scar on my pubis, how in depth are the medical screens/ do you think they will find it under pubic hair if I don't say anything to the question. Thank you in advance for taking your time to help me out.
  4. (please bear with the lingo and "perspective"...ROTC cadets like myself are more than an amateur in the processes and lingo of active duty) Current status: - ROTC cadet (3rd year, approaching senior year) with a rated categorization, specifically CSO 12XXX - In process of getting my flight physical scheduled...filling out the self reported inventory of what's "wrong with me" - have a current knee injury (or so i believe an injury) waiting for official doctor diagnosis of whats wrong with it, MRI has been done, waiting for results Problem: - I do not want to lose my CSO slot for something as minor as a knee injury. - possibility of going on MRS when I return for fall semester if the injury does not improve over summer Worst case scenario: - knee is injured, requires surgery and this occurs in the process of getting the goddamn flight physical. - they take note of the injury on the flight physical, and reject me as qualified to fly because that stupid shit. I brought the injury to my chain of command's attention (i don't want to shoot myself in the foot!) (or did I already?) best case scenario: - knee just needs some time to heal (no physical training for a while, rehabilitate before semester starts up in the fall again. ) - keep CSO slot, hopefully nothing else can possibly DQ me. Questions: - is MRS something to fear while obtaining this flight physical. To my understanding, you can't fly while on MRS, which would mean you can't obtain a flying physical either? - with regard only to my knee (not any other possible DQs like eye problems and shit like that) how do I eliminate the risk of losing my CSO slot due to my own reporting of this god damn knee injury. you can probably sense the frustration...it's because this was caused by something so stupid, and I would be pretty frustrated if I lost such a great job opportunity for this. Thanks for the help.
  5. Hi folks, I know this might seem like a rather bold question, but I have searched quite a bit and haven't found the exact answers I am looking for. I thought this would be the place to ask before I start contacting units. I have seen on unit applications that there is an education exception to policy for applicants who do not have Bachelor's degrees but are "exceptionally qualified." The requirements were based on hours completed and GPA with the caveat of finishing a Bachelors within 4 years of commission. So here is where I am at currently, and why I see this as an opportunity. Personal Details: -2 Associates Applied Science in Aviation Maintenance. 4.0 GPA Board of Regents Graduate -current student in Part 141 Pilot Training program which will award another AAS. Will end with ratings up through CFII/MEI if on time. Currently at 32 hours towards PPL (I know, right?) -Airframe & Powerplant license holder -4+ years AD Army (armament and avionics on AH-64D's). Iraq Deployment. MOS Distinguished Honor Graduate. Honorably Discharged. Security Clearance. -12 hours additional college credits (3.9 GPA) -Age: 27 -Female -tons of leadership experience and strong LORs -Interested only in heavies As it stands now, I will graduate in June of 2016, just at my 29th birthday. I know this makes me age critical, which is why I would like to attempt a so called education exception. Would I be considered "exceptionally qualified?" It wasn't exactly detailed in the application. I was also recently told by someone of stature in the AFRC command that female pilots are desperately needed. I don't care if its for bullshit EO reasons, if that is an angle I have I'll use it. Would it be better for me to attempt an education exemption based on being age critical, or work on a Bachelors and ask for an age waiver? I feel like since it is listed on applications, it is an opportunity worth taking. I don't mind if my application is laughed at... I'd rather that than have not tried at all. Any insights or clarification on this policy is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  6. Red Lens Test Waiver

    I am a Cadet at the Air Force Academy and I recently had my vision tested for pilot qualification. I passed all my tests with flying colors except the Red Lens Test which I failed. The docs told me to come back for in-depth testing of my depth perception (which is a more thorough examination then the Red Lens Test) since I failed the Red Lens Test. The depth perception test was the one with the circles etc. I passed that one with flying colors as well. The docs then retested me on the Red Lens Test at the end of the depth perception test and I failed it again. The docs said they are going to try and get a waiver for the Red Lens Test and my myopia. The docs said that I passed every vision test except the Red Lens, and when they did a more thorough exam of my depth perception due to my failure of the Red Lens (to find out if something else was going on with my eyes), I passed all those in-depth tests perfectly. So my question is, are Red Lens Tests waivers heard of and do I have a good chance of getting that waivered based upon my tests above and getting my pilot qualification? If you could answer this, or point me in the direction of someone who could give me a pretty certain answer, I'd highly appreciate it because this is obviously very important to me. If you need to know anything else in order to give me a better answer, please feel free to ask. Thanks!
