Hi guys,  figured it was my time to jump in this conversation since I'm finally gearing up to start putting in my first applications.  Gonna shoot for the 158th in Savannah to break the ice.  Tricky thing about my situation is that I'm currently AD assigned to Andersen AFB in Guam so I'm not sure how that's gonna work with my DEROS.  If anyone has any insight on the 158th, it would be much appreciated.

PM me.  Long time ANG C-130 Nav with lots of insights on how the hiring process goes for fully qualified bubbas.

You, son, have lots to learn.

Just wanted to say I got picked up! I've been on this forum for almost 2 years now and it has helped me a lot with SA. Looking forward to the adventure and thanks for all the help!

Anyone know if our favorite Buckley applicant got the call?

What is this strange new word

In real world Air Force speak, Recce is Reconnaissance.  The post you commented on meant recognition so when they show you a picture of an aircraft at the interview you should be able to state what aircraft it is.  And based on his comment, there aren't a lot of of units who would do that to you in an interview.  So, you may not want to waste too many brain bytes on it but it still will be a good thing to work on as you proceed into your budding AF career.

Can confirm the B-1 bit.  The Dyess Reserve folks won't have a UPT board till 2023.  As for the Missouri B-2s they just had a UPT board but it was open to only for folks who were currently in the Missouri Air National Guard.  The POC said they occasionally will recruit UPT from the outside but it depends on the year.  Hope this helps some folks.  

For you young Bomber wannabee pilots, I suggest scratching the B-1 off the list.  It is on the retirement chopping block.  Not a done deal but I wouldn't go to Vegas or even Atlantic City and put any money on any future new Reserve B-1 pilots.

Has anyone heard anything about the 121st at Andrews? Have they hired recently? 

PM me.  I know an ANG pilot who got a VC-### (737) position at Andrews recently so probably has the inside scoop on who they look for.  Likely only current Rated bubbas need apply (he was long time 130 guy who was at NGB on staff for awhile).

Thanks! Sounds like I should turn to my favorite study tool, Ace Combat 7, for help with this one.

I’d bet money on it. We have one here in UPT right now actually. What’s your source?

2015: For you young A-10 wannabee pilots, I suggest scratching the A-10 off the list.  It is on the retirement chopping block.  Not a done deal but I wouldn't go to Vegas or even Atlantic City and put any money on any future new Reserve A-10 pilots.

Anyone hear any results from Oklahoma yet?

Flyer for the board said it wasn't till April but I remember hearing something at the most recent drill weekend they were convening earlier.  Anyone else who heard better care to chime in?

If I understood things correctly after last weekend, interview notifications may go out a bit later than the given date (today) but the board dates (April) will remain unchanged.

The posting on bogidope said they would send out invites by Feb. 7th

I just rushed Tulsa this past weekend. They plan on notifying interview selectees the first weekend of march due to the email address mix up. Board is still planned to be in April. If anything, calling the squadron and talking to a pilot is usually the best source of accurate info.

For those of you applying to the 115th Airlift Squadron out of Point Mugu, CA, do we include official sealed transcripts with the mailed in application? Their flyer states this,

"Sealed Official College Transcripts

  • Unofficial copies placed inside application package"

Obviously for the E-mailed application, the only choice is placing unofficial copies, but I'm confused for the mailed app.
