Assignment after Medical DQ


Recommended Posts

Can anyone talk to the assignment process once an 11F is medically disqualified from all flying duties but remains qualified for military service? Would the fighter porch remain ownership and determine assignments? Is conversion to a new AFSC possible? Which office would control the process and decide the outcome?

Thanks for the help.

Depends on the specifics of your DQ waiver and your remaining or new ADSC. Are you DQ'd from ALL flying classes or just FCI/II? What about UAV/GBC? Regardless, re-assignment ownership would likely flow back to AFPC Assignments. I've seen this for several Enlisted but Officer is much less common. Recommend you send a request through MyPers to the Assignments folks, assuming somebody at Assignments is slightly more competent than a brain-dead monkey.

Go to Law school, start a TV show. But really, if you are young enough there is a program for that, I looked into it years ago.

At my last assignment we had a former 11M who become permanently DQ. He then cross-flowed into logistics and is now managed by the logistics careerfield (plus he just got picked up for RAS so he gets dual-managed).

From the attached document it appears that once DQ'd, an officer's career manager (the fighter porch in this case) works with other career field managers to find a new home for the officer. RUMINT suggests that the fighter porch will not release an 11F to a new career field and will instead use them to fill non-flying fighter billets, most likely staff.

That's the theory. We'll see how it works out in practice.
