  1. Interviewed at the NDANG 119th Wing UPT/URT board. Board was three members.It was a pretty relaxing atmosphere, chuckles and laughs all around in the beginning. They began with some pretty easy questions: What do I know about North Dakota and am I okay with cold? Do I have a family and are they okay with moving to North Dakota? Why am I interested in the North Dakota ANG? Do I know the difference between UPT and URT? If I am transferred over and worse comes to worse where something happens and I am either not able to attend UPT/URT, or I washout, what would my plan be

  4. I am going to double down on this statement. That's all we got?
  5. Does anyone know how the seats in tfot work? I was talking with an AD recruiter and he said that tfot is booked into 2020. What I want to know is tfot as a whole booked that far or do the seats for Guard/reserve fall under a different projected schedule so to speak? For instance, in each class is so many seats reserved for AD and so many for Guard/reserve
  6. Last week I got a big fat no for the 176/168th dual upt board in Alaska. To old, to low of a PCSM score.
  7. In case anyone was wondering, there is no specific age limit for entry Undergraduate Remotely Piloted Aircraft Training (URT). Based on a few changes recently, according to AFI 36-2105, Chapter 3, paragraph 3.1.1 spells out the age restrictions for persons seeking to enter UPT. Paragraph 3.1.1.3 adds an exception for URT candidates. "3.1.1.3. Exception for Undergraduate Remotely Piloted Aircraft Training: must meet maximum age for appointment in the various grades as specified in AFI 36-2005, Appointment in Commissioned Grades and Designation and Assignment in Professional Categories – Reserve
  8. I’m going to try the RPA route in the Texas Guard before I try anything else. The next board is in October, so even if I wait that long to push for a ppl it won’t set me back but a couple more months, less if I get a rejection letter before the boards.
  9. I did, and I was not selected in Alaska. Age was the biggest factor, and my PCSM score was next. It was a 46 without flight hours. I can do something about the PCSM, but "I ain't getting any younger". I am still submitting for a RPA slot in Texas through the TXANG. I'm getting my package together now.
  10. I decided to take the plunge and submit a package for a traditional spot in Houston, TX. I am already in the TXANG, so I've got that going for me, but considering I live in Alaska (temporarily) I won't be able to get down for weekends prior to a board to help get my face/name out there. Don't know what I'd do for work down there if I get selected, but I'll figure that if it comes down to it. Boards for the next selection will be "sometime in October", based on the recruiter. I'll update here as I move through the process.
  11. I am considering submitting a package for an RPA spot in the ANG. After reading through some posts here, it seems that the consensus is this is a black hole, borderline career ender with not much room for advancement. Now, I’d need a waiver to join for age (34), and I've already got 12 years of service (AD and Guard) under my belt as enlisted, but it couldn’t be that bad of a move. Are those opinions mainly coming from people who were hoping to actually fly and got assigned to RPAs instead? I can see how they’d think it’s miserable.
  12. My AFOQT scores are as follows: 84 Pilot, 85 Nav, 67 Acad Apt, 62 Verbal, 67 Quant I don't have a PCSM score yet, but I also have no flight hours. I will be taking the TBAS beginning of June, and I hear without flight hours, the best you can do on a PCSM score is 70. So other things being constant, and considering my pilot score, if I ace the TBAS, the best I could feasibly do is about a 64 PCSM, give or take. GPA: Currently 3.38, but I'm projecting close to a 3.5 by graduation in end of August, with a B.A.A.S. in Technical Management I am 34 years old, I'm also an enliste
  13. Anyone here ever boarded at the 168th in Eielson? I’m submitting a package for the dual board in JBER. Wanting to know some info.
