I didn’t get a TBNT email from Tucson but didn’t get anything with an invite yet either. Has anyone received an invite?

Anyone heard a rumor about only ~20 selects going to UPT next year? That's what I'm hearing in the Make Them Tell You No Facebook group. I know there are huge backlogs but that seems absurdly low. And supposedly that's a Total Force directive so that 20 reflects AD, Guard, and Reserve.

Nada. Anyone that interviewed with Ohio know when they plan to announce their selections?

Depends on what you mean by “next year.” For fiscal year 2021 I can tell you that AD’s goal is 80 pilots.

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?

80 is low. Multiple AD boards have been cancelled/postponed. As of right now, AD is only planning one rated board for FY21. It’s possible they could add more. I guess it depends how well the first one goes. It’s safe to assume this is due, at least in part, to covid.

Here is some information I received: Air Force Reserve command has limited the amount of UPT slots for the upcoming fiscal year, realistically less than 50% of the pilot training allocation slots it usually does.  That is a total of 92 UPT slots for 2021.  Additionally they have 56 flying squadrons that are under 90% manned. The summation of that is AFRC is going to allocate its 92 slots for the undermanned units.

This sounds a billion times more plausible. Was that from a Reserve recruiter?

Anybody got word from the 109th AW in NY? Been about a month since applications were due. I tried reaching out to the POC but she said she didn’t know when boards would happen.

Got the TBNT from Hawaii last night, and Tucson just now. Congrats to those invited!

Sorry to hear that man- did you interview at Hawaii or was it just in response to the application?

Looks like Tuscon interview notifications went out today. I'll be there in November and I'm hoping to see some of you all there as well!

Scott AFB calls were made today for anyone who dropped a packet there.

Calls for a yes or for a no?

for the interview portion, not the actual job

Yeah I meant were they calling to give the TBNT or an interview notification.  Im guessing for those who haven't heard, they'll send a TBNT email tomorrow

Is this for the board with the original deadline back in February?

Crazy. That was the first board I applied to and feels like forever ago. Good luck to everyone still in the running

Hate to keeping asking the same question, but has anyone heard from Tulsa? I send an updated resume once every 4-6 weeks but I haven't heard anything since CO called to postpone in March.

Heard they cancelled the board this year.  May want to call and confirm but that's the last I heard.

Can confirm. Was told to reach back out in the spring.
