Got a reject letter from Oregon yesterday early afternoon. So y'all that have not received emails yet, that is probably a good thing!

No, but I’d love to fly fighters. I applied to a heavy unit in the east coast. 

Look into the A-10s st Whiteman in Missouri. I got picked up last year and I I’ve been told there are a lot fewer applicants than we had last year.

I will give it a shot. Do you know if they're entertaining age waivers? I just turned 30.

If I remember correctly, whiteman said they do not expect to run age waivers on their bogidope posting but I’d still apply! I’d be a liar if I said I haven’t been in interviews where a post-30 dude got the job after the unit said they don’t do waivers. You never know man don’t give up!

I’ll definitely be dropping an application if I can get these AFOQT and TBAS tests done. I’ll be an off-the-street applicant, so it may be a little difficult, but I’m only 22 and fly for a regional airline so perhaps I have a chance. How do they know that there won’t be as many applicants this year?

That’s what Blitz told me. I think they actually may have pushed the board back a ways too so I’d ask about that.

@DesperateApplicant I doubt it, unless folks really bomb the initial interview screening. If most folks got invited, it was probably due to a great application and having a great attitude/fit in the unit.

Remember, this is just speculation... so I can very well be proven wrong. Either way, great group of folks and best of wishes for those folks that got interviewed! Still plenty of other slots and I'm definitely going to gun for those A-10 slots! (Pun intended)

I reached out to Blitz cause I'm pretty close to the cut-off as well and he said the age waiver is unlikely... But I can't agree more with @Tommy Boy just throw your application out there!

Yeah, I'm hoping for an alternate interview slot or just hoping that all haven't been sent yet! No room for negativity during this process.

Let's make a list of fighter units that are currently hiring. Do any of these units allow visiting before turning in the application? And does anyone know if they only hire from within? How many people do they plan on hiring this year? And lastly do you have to visit to get an interview?

  1. Indiana
  2. Florida
  3. DC
  4. Vermont
  5. South Carolina
  6. Missouri
  7. New Jersey
  8. Louisiana
  9. Wisconsin

No word, probably running behind on schedule. I'll also assume that Oregon has sent out all of their interview invites. Congrats to those who got it, if anyone wants to give me their interview slot I'll gladly take it!

@Topper14 can you confirm or deny the visit conversation for the 121fs in this thread?

I PMed the pilot who posted on Reddit a few weeks ago and they said they're doing visits in March when they return from deployment.

Been quiet for a while though, I imagine they're incredibly busy right now.

Vermont - Visits are good; not required, but a good idea.  Multiple non-VT guys were hired last board.

Yes; recently got an email back saying that the board was pushed to November
