Has anyone applied to the January Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) Sponsored/Un-sponsored board? I was wondering if anyone has heard about the results...

My recruiter told me both the January and March Reserve pilot boards were canceled and all active duty pilot boards were canceled this year.

When did you hear that? I spoke to my active recruiter on Friday and he didn’t mention anything about the board being canceled.

My recruiter told me that last Tuesday... not sure what the deal is.

I found out from my sponsoring unit yesterday that the Jan board is cancelled and they’re moving everyone to the March board. This is what they heard from AFRC. I guess the AFRC Student Pilot Training pipeline is backed up.

Anyone happen to know the number of applicants selected to attend UPT from Oregon's last Board (Last year)? I'm assuming is more than 1. Just curious

They selected 3 for Portland and 2 for Kingsley last year. They said they’re hiring 4 this year.

You sure he’s not just trying to steer you away from AD so he can keep you for himself? 🤪

Can confirm from my trip out there.  Not sure what the breakdown is between the 2 locations are but they have 4 openings.

Does anybody know if the 112FS in Toledo allows visiting? And if so, when are their upcoming drill dates?

Anyone have a good aircraft recce guide they used to prepare for interviews? 

Honestly, Google. 

I've only been asked to do recce at 1 interview. The aircraft listed were: T-6, T-38, F-16, F-15, F-18, B-2, U-2, and SU-30. 

Obviously that list depends on the type of airframe/unit you're applying for, but generally speaking, if you can identify all current US fighters/bombers, USAF trainers, and 5-6 foreign aircraft, you'll be just fine. As a sidenote, that slideshow also included Robin Olds. I'd be able to identify him and John Boyd.

Ah, I called Tulsa Monday and let Hooks know...I was only able to email mine in because I have access to the global. Glad he was able to get the word out. Gotta love technology.

Thank you! This is a great rundown.

Anyone know if the Makos decided on a Feb or Mar Board?

Just spoke with Blanks a few days ago and they decided to push the board out to the Fall.

Anyone know if any Guard/Reserve squadrons hire civilian UPT applicants for the CV-22?

Thought I’d give everyone a heads up. It sounds like the 107th at Selfridge will likely have a board in April with a meet and greet during our March drill (07/08 March 2020). Nothings 100% confirmed yet but I’ll keep you guys posted. I’ve heard this from the new OG, FS commander, and several others higher up in the chain of command.
So get your applications ready!
