Yeah, packages were due back in October.  I only found out by asking the 190th personally when their next boards would be held.  Shared the info with my fellow interviewees during the 107th FS boards but did not post it on here as I had not used this site before.  When all else fails, never be afraid to just call the squadron and ask!!! 😀

I'll be landing in the early afternoon on Thursday, but I may not be available Thursday night. Shoot me a message and we'll figure it out.

Awesome! If you haven’t already, I’d start a “What are my chances” thread. You can get some good advice there too!

Check bogidope for upcoming boards too! Fresno and Oregon both have packets due at the beginning of February.

Copy. I will look into the thread.  I am already looking into the Bogidope website (it's dope = straight shooter; no pun intended). Long story short, pursuit for AD UPT slot did not pan out this year despite my UPT-worthy scores, but oh well.  I have my PPL so that's a plus and some AD experience.

Sounds like Fresno and Oregon will be holding their boards on the same weekend. Oregon on March 2 - 3, with two rounds of interviews (1st round Saturday, second round Sunday). Fresno on the 3rd. Massachusetts will have their social on the 1st as well. Interesting...

Word of advice, be transparent if you are attempting to interview for both boards same weekend...word travels fast. 

Mass social(like all others) is a must for potential interviewees.

Is it just me or do reserve units seem to hire less? There's a couple I really have my eye on but i haven't seen much from them. Do they do things a little different? One unit told me they wouldn't be hiring for a couple years which seemed quite odd

Greatly depends on the units manning.

Both of the Guard units I interviewed at said 1-2 candidates per year. My home reserve unit said f*** off (Dobbins, no problem with manning with ATL close by) and the reserve unit I got hired at was bringing in 3-4.

Last year Mass hired people who did not attend the meet and greet.

If I were to get more flight hours or complete my PPL in the time period between a package submission deadline and a hypothetical interview date, am I able to update it with the units I’m applying to? Or am I locked into what I submitted?

I doubt you'd be able to update your application during that window, although someone with experience can correct me if I'm wrong. But for sure you could mention it during the interview if you completed your PPL, got an additional rating, doubled your flying hours etc.

EDIT: Looks like I was wrong (not surprising hah). Good to know.

You can always email the unit and tell them you’d like to update it if possible if a certain milestone is met. Can’t hurt. I wouldn’t email them after every flight hour you fly, but a ppl vs no ppl is a big deal. They may just say got it thanks and annotate it, or have you submit a copy of it, or not respond at all. I’ve heard/seen updates done (or not) various ways.

I was able to update mine when I hit a milestone. Went from 78 to 81 hours which got me the extra points. It was my unit that was hiring and I knew them already which may have helped but I would definitely try. Worst they can do is say no.

Has anyone had issues with the contact email for Tampa (63 ARS) as posted on bogidope? I've tried sending twice, including manually typing out the address once, and have received "address not found" auto-replies.
