  1. Did the PC-12 already do this back before the transition to the U-28? I’d imagine it’s more expensive now though than the 208, but could still be a good option.
  2. Liberty University offers a flight program as well as an AFROTC detachment, knocking out both of your concerns. It is a private school, and therefore pricey, but it’s what you’re looking for in Virginia. You could look into AFROTC scholarship opportunities to help offset the cost, too. *Edit* Feel free to send me a PM if you're interested in the above. Virginia also offers a 2+2 program with community colleges (like engeguy posted below). I've got some experience with that stuff, so just let me know.

  4. A friend of mine currently in T-6s has said they do a mix of area work and instrument approaches. It seems like it’s similar to the T-1 transition phase, just obviously with much shorter sorties.

  6. I was wondering if there was anything to update about the C-12. How is the ops tempo, fam life, morale, etc looking now for new copilots? Thanks a ton in advance!
  7. Keep in mind that you'll get contracted to the AF upon completion of Field Training (unless you're already on scholarship). Getting out of that contract will have repercussions (I'd do some digging into it/speak to cadre to get the full scoop). I can only speak to going through AFROTC to get a pilot slot, not rushing guard/reserve units, but if you're passionate about it and willing to put in hard work, you'll have pretty good chances. Also keep in mind that completing AFROTC and commissioning will, at the very least, get you a job of some sort in the AF, which could help you get a pilot slot later down the road, whether it's through networking or funding a PPL for experience. Just my two cents, but I really enjoyed my time in ROTC and would recommend it.

  15. Good stuff, thanks for the info! I grew up near Langley and never really knew what those guys did.
  16. The ADAIRs help train raptors for combat against non-stealthy enemies, right? And, if you drop 38 ADAIR out of UPT, does that guarantee you a raptor after a couple years?
  17. Not really sure, others here will have a better guess than me though. Sorry man
  18. Pretty sure T-1 guys get to see "what's available" for drop night (airframe, location), but T-38 guys basically make a dream sheet. As far as how many of each option are available, I don't think that's stated. So it could say "C-17 Charleston, C-17 Dover, etc" but not how many 17s to Charleston or Dover.
  19. Has being non-vol'd to -38s happened before? If so, do those guys end up loving it and getting fighters, or have there been cases where they were non-vol'd -38s and "non-vol'd" to fighters? Just curious.

  21. Any word on Vance or Laughlin drops?
  22. Does anyone know whether the students who dropped the 3 x U-28 and 2 x C-146 put those high on their wishlist? Just curious, thanks!
  23. I didn't realize they dropped these at UPT... that's sick. I always figured that was one you had to switch into.
  24. As a sensitive new age pilot (select) I'm offended and expect an apology.
