Guard/Reserve timeline to UPT

Recommended Posts

The average has been 18 to 24 months from hired to UPT for the longest I can remember. It sucks, but all you can do is be a good bro, learn about your unit and the mission and try to get an idea of what life will be like for seasoning.

I agree. 18 - 24 months sounds about right. Mine is 14 months from hire to UPT (AFRC) but I’m an inter-service transfer guy with a PPL so I got to skip OTS and IFT. There’s been times when I had to nudge my recruiter and my chain of command to get stuff done so don’t be hesitant to make the phone call. Ultimately, it’s your career, and no one else cares as much as you do.

Congrats on the progress. Judging by your picture, did you get picked up for HH-60's? 

I got notified in January for -60's but it's been silent on the recruiting end after that. I've been told I can expect FC1 in May, but the rest is unclear. your timeline seems pretty fast, any advice for someone waiting on dates? 

Thanks

Any word on COVID-19 affecting UPT dates? The instruction I saw said no PCS and TDY's until May, does that mean everyone will be pushed to the right two months?

Fluid situation here at KEND.  Standby to standby.

Rated assignments team said its a rapidly changing situation, but AETC is working to make UFT “mission essential.” I would assume its all still a go.

Just talked to my base, I have orders to report to UPT April 7th. They said it's considered mission essential, so it's still on.

Correct, OTS, BMT, tech training, UPT, FTU all are carrying on as normal as far as I know.

Just hear physicals at Wright Patt are being rescheduled if you had a date before May 11

Are FC1s still being cleared by AETC with this whole coronavirus? Already did my FC1, just waiting on the clearance/approval. I assume so, but thought I'd double check.

Here at Wright-Patt, we've been told that IFCs are cancelled with no timeline on when they will restart.  I realize you've already done your IFC, but in case others were wondering....

I've heard NGB is all out of UPT slots for the fiscal year.  Anyone have any intel on this? 

Unless there are fallouts, that is correct from what I've been told.

Wouldn’t count of fallouts bros. We were told yesterday that no new classes are starting at our base. Rumor for new arrivals with Orders In hand is to still in process but don’t expect to start anytime soon. Phase progression once complete is being halted as well. I have a bro that tracked 38s and was T6 complete last week. He was told to expect NOT to start phase 3 anytime soon. Not sure if it’s the same deal with all the other UPT bases.

These are Crazy times at UPT bros.

Yikes! Not good news for an older dude such as myself who was starting to get some interview traction before this charlie foxtrot. Wonder if they'd consider bumping up the UPT age limit even more once things eventually return to any semblance of normalcy. I imagine the backlog from this is going to add a massive amount of time to the pipeline. 😱

CAFB is delaying at least the next two classes, apparently prioritizing Guard and Reserve for the next one that starts up (rumor right now is the May 11 class but TBD obviously).

Rumor they're doing the same at Laughlin, I'm the April 21st class and Guard.

Checks. Older guard guy here, ETP approved, no words on UPT date (or location) even before the Corona stuff. Assuming next FY at best now.

Checks.
From Cathy Rico:

 

- Working with AETC A1, AU and AFPC, we've turned off inbound student flow
to Laughlin for the next 90-120 days or so in order to prevent over
pressurizing the housing situation and compromising Lee's ability to allow
his students to maintain social distancing.  Lt Gen Hecker and AU will
accept the graduates who don't already have a permanent Air Force home. Lt
Gen Hecker reports that AU has both space and meaningful work for these
officers in the short term”

 

As far as I know, the 3 June 20 class has been told to push. All beyond that can expect the delay. 
 

See you out there @elvis

Guess that's why I've been told April 21st class date has been cancelled and then back on about 3 times. Got orders and a house so my a** is going. See ya there @PilotCandidate
