Palace Chase info

Anybody successfully PC with an ADSC for the pilot bonus? I took it to 20 but got passed over for Lt Col and thinking about getting out this summer/fall. I also have an ADSC for my PCS around 1 Oct. So I was thinking about asking for a couple months early ie around 1 July. Any chance that would get approved and what are the repurcussians of getting denied ie would I be able to resubmit in time for the 1 Oct date or should I just ask for 1 Oct when my ADSC for my PCS ends. The other option is to just wait to deny continuation when I get passed over again this summer but I’d rather work it from both ends so to speak. Also anyone know if a PC gets approved for a certain date can you slip it to the right or turn it off if needed.

Anyone PC’d from staff? My app went through my CC last Friday. She referred it to AFPC then they sent it to “Wing Commander.” That’s where it still resides in the system. Had my CSS look at the CMS case and it does not give detail to who it actually resides with. Basically, I’m not in any Wg/CC’s chain. It’s not with my senior rater. The Wg/CC at my base does not have it. Anyone dealt with this before?

This is the bureaucracy we all love and hate.  , Try submitting a trouble ticket or find someone with CMS god rights who can find the person and send them an email directly. At one point my AFPC sent my application to a different functional and I had to chase it down and get it sent to the correct place.  Batten down the hatches buddy and good luck...

I heard that either once enrolled in TAPs a year out from DOS, or finished the capstone you can’t be on ced orders? You can still do normal TDY’s, just can’t be on CED orders. 

Any truth to this, and if so where is it in the black and white?

My PC application made it out of the wing surprisingly quickly. It is now Referred to Palace Chase OPR. Is this the last stop or how many more steps does it go through?

I’m only asking for 2.5 months off of a PCS ADSC, UPT ADSC will be complete.

I’m in the same boat. That’s where my app is sitting. Been there since early Feb. They did upload a document last week that resembles an eSSS that shows the different stops within AFPC. I can’t tell if it’s current and accurate data or just a canned document waiting to be updated at each stop.

Unfortunately I don’t know the answer to your question. I do believe it has at least one more stop at SAF/PC for final approval or denial.

If you have ALL approved up to the head of the Palace Chase office, Col something, then he/she can sign it off...if it goes to the board, you can expect 8 weeks from the time it was sent up, they will put all 3 instruments on Vmpf (approve/disapprove/conditional), once you get some sort of approval, you will have 60 days to get your requested unit to do the 2nd endorsement...I have been through this twice in the past year, first time to board (disapproved) 2nd was approved all the way up....I have heard that anything inside of 6 months they will approve (especially for UPT ADSC), they will approve outside of that for PCS, hope that helps

I recently palace chased (6 months off of UPT) and now am realizing I am far too task saturated with the civilian job to keep up with the Reserve gig. Is there anyway to take a knee without being recalled back to active duty? IRR?

I would not press to test this for all the reasons you’ve thought of and you’re gonna screw all your bros trying to get into your unit as a part timer.

Out of curiosity, what’s the civilian gig?

Anyone out there who took the bonus try to Palace Chase? And if so did it get approved?  Any details/lessons learned would be awesome.

How long did that take you to get the approval from the PC office? I’m guessing that’s where mine is sitting now (Referred to PC OPR) and I have all approvals.

From the time it got to the palace chase office it was around 2 weeks for him to sign it, it showed up on vMPF long before I got the email notification....the office is not very fast

You’re an officer or enlisted? Just to make sure we’re comparing apples to apples. My ISR is saying it’s been taking 8 weeks to hear back for Officer Palace Chase. I’m hoping it’s not that long...

Officer, major, pilot, with 8 month pilot training ADSC....most of the recruiters are morons when it comes to how the process actually works...for final approval a couple months back

Yeah my ISR was/is pretty useless.

Definitely recommend spending 10 minutes looking at AFI 36-3205 and searching Palace Chase on MyPers. MyPers has a document that provides more info on how paperwork is routed, etc. 

For the twice passed over types I also found out that the Reserves currently don’t require twice passed over waivers ie it’s basically blanket approval. 

Good luck everyone. 

PS- If anyone knows anyone who has denied continuation please PM me as I’d love to get some advice.

I just passed 3 weeks from when it got to the PC office. I’m checking the status every day, it gives me nightmares to back during my VSP applications. I’m just ready for it to be done so I can get on with my life.

Look up the number to the Total Force Service center and call and ask for the palace chase office and what is taking so long, they have to answer your request, usually a response from MYPERs through email, you will be on hold for prob 45 min, but it will move it along, mine they totally forgot about

I have a non-standard situation. 

I work directly for the Wing/CC so when I submitted the electronic application, I put my Wing/CC as my supervisor.  After I clicked submit, I checked the status and it said "Referred to Sq Commander".  I emailed my Wing/CC to see if it's with him, but haven't gotten a response.  No one at MPF, AFPC, etc can tell me who it is with right now.  So is "Referred to Sq Commander" just the generic name of the first step, or is it sitting in the internet abyss right now?  What kind of notification will my Wing/CC get when it gets to him?

😂 They got you.

Are you an out of hide billet? If so, maybe check with your sq/cc billet owner.
