2020 Air Force Active Duty UPT Board

Little bit of a gouge here for you.  This was briefed at Vance a little while ago:

UPT 3.0 is going to be with the T-7. That's planned for a 2021 takeover.  With the T-7, they're going to be giving wings BEFORE entering that airframe.  IE, if you want to track fighters, then you're going to be in a T-6 for 8ish months, get winged, then hit the T-7 for like 6-8 (undetermined now) months then go to a shortened B-Course.  UPT 2.5, which is the "Banzai" classes they keep doing, is going to become a real thing come this June.  It's essentially going to be the shortened syllabus with more practice in the beginning and tying it all together towards the end of UPT, with the early "track select" while in T-6s so you do more nav for T-1s, form for T-38, etc.

Oh wow, T-7's are really on track to be in UPT starting in 2021?

Yeah exactly... So obviously just all 'briefing' timelines, probably 22 or 23 to be realistic.

My Initial Flight Physical expires before I go to IFT, do I need to get a new one before going to IFT or should my initial one be fine?

Can somebody give me their recruiter information? I am in Texas/New Mexico and can not find a Line Officer recruiter. The office local to me said they no long have an Officer recruiter and when I call the AF Call Center, they say they can't work with me since I'm in the Army. I get it, but I just need to talk to an Officer recruiter who handles UPT. 

TIA.

You’ll have to contact the board directly and submit to the next AD board... you can reach out to the board and get the checklist from them. It took me a while to figure that out and it was really frustrating to have recruiters ignore me for being an Army Pilot. I was able to submit to the board back in 2018 but withdrew my application due to a job offer with a ANG unit. You’ll need a DD368 as well. Good luck. Cheers

Thanks for that. I'll now find out how to contact the board. Tracking the 368 as well. Personally speaking, was that a PITA to get signed-off on from your Command? 

 

EDIT: Did you have to get the 368 prior to applying to the board or after you knew you got selected?

As a FNG with an RNLTD of 31 March this thread has been nothing but useful in regards to JBSA Randolph. I've been in preparation to leave for Laughlin since May '19 until I received my orders last week with Randolph AFB listed and have been given absolutely zero answers as to why until now. Nobody knows UPT can also be done there now and neither did I. 

My only concern now is that with your 3 typical UPT bases you get a nice helpful student handbook to go along with it. In regards to reporting procedures (as I leave in under 4 weeks) would it be best to take it up with the Major there? Thanks again.

It was a bit of PITA. Mainly the S1 folks and HRC sitting on the damn paperwork and waiting on signatures. The command supported my decision since my commitment was over. Get to know the routing of the 368 and stay on top of it until you have it in hand. Don’t just trust the S1 Lt that probably doesn’t know what’s going on.

I meet the deadline for packet submittal. A 368 wasn’t part of the checklist so I didn’t include it. But one of the board representatives reached out before the board meet to ask for it. Thankfully by that time I had it in hand.

Thanks for that info. I'll get a 368 going up the chain. Did your guard unit you got a slot with want to see the 368 also?

I wonder what the over/under is on our PCS’ being moved.....

They've already cancelled drop nights here at KEND.  I personally think XCs are next.  So, yeah, we're gonna get shoved back.

Are they still doing drops even without the nights?

Yeah, only those directly involved can attend.  IE, the class and family

Any guesses on what the status might be for those with IFT dates AFTER the TDY ban? Is everyone going to get moved back? Or do they reslot the folks whose dates directly conflict with the 60 Days order?

According to this, flight training is considered mission essential. So theoretically, it should continue.we_might_still_be_in.jpeg

31 May. Not sure if COVID related, but probably is. Gonna get more info on Monday, I knew Laughlin was having housing issues with graduates not being able to PCS out, so probably some backup alleviation.

Oh man sorry to hear that. Now I'm worried about dates for next month. 

 

Edit: Where did you find out they were delayed?

Got email saying there was a change, checked vMPF for my assignment and saw it. My new orders haven’t even been cut yet.

I’m glad Im still going.

Anybody having their IFT dates moved around? I heard that 19 AF put out guidance that manned IFT slots take priority over RPA/CSO. Curious if any other URT folks have had their dates moved/canceled...
