  1. Are we still seeing 4-6 months of wait time between getting the FC1 scheduled and arriving at WP?
  2. I'm super happy for you man, glad you got UPT on the horizon. That's gonna help the hard days at work go by a little bit easier.
  3. Is there any nuance to this though? Being passionless about engineering but having a burning passion for aviation. Or will it translate to the aviation and I'll burnout too? I'm just throwing things out there, I know there isn't an exact answer.
  4. Hey everyone, I'm currently waiting on my FC1/MFS stamp approval w/waiver, so I am anticipating a late summer early fall OTS start date. Currently working at a huge engineering defense contractor and experiencing terrible burnout. Just got pulled aside by my team lead and said my teammate told him I am not performing and there is no progress from me. I feel like I am limping to the finish line and God forbid my MFS gets denied and I can't attend UPT. I have little to no passion for what I do and it results in me watching YouTube for like 6-7 hours a day, especially because I am working from home. I am stepping it up now because I don't want to lose my job just in case but this fire under my ass won't last long and isn't sustainable. My question is: if I am blessed and pass my MFS and get to UPT, will this burnout carry over? I want to be the best pilot I can be but I don't want this to be a red flag for happening in the middle of UPT when things get hard. Just looking for advice cause I am really starting to get down trodden and lose hope as I feel worthless right now for some reason. If it is just a nut up and shut up situation and tough it out then I will gladly do it lol. But I want to make sure if this is behaivor I need to fix before UPT, then it is fixed before then.
  5. Is there a waiver to take the PCSM a 3rd time like you can with the AFOQT?
  6. Bogidope said fighter squadrons require higher pcsm than heavy squadron. Is there any truth to this?
  7. Do you guys know which fighter squadrons don't allow their postings on Bogidope? I know Boise doesn't let them post, any others such as Ohio or other units?
  8. Dang not much faith there, we all know how much recruiters know on topics such as these...
  9. Blessed up in here guys, hope is back! We got time brothers the clock has been reset. This is such awesome news!
  10. That's nuts! Does this mean this automatically flows down to Guard and Reserve units as well?
  11. Let's make a list of fighter units that are currently hiring. Do any of these units allow visiting before turning in the application? And does anyone know if they only hire from within? How many people do they plan on hiring this year? And lastly do you have to visit to get an interview? Indiana Florida DC Vermont South Carolina Missouri New Jersey Louisiana Wisconsin
  12. I bet they will send us rejections in a week or so, or maybe none. Invites always go out first.
  13. I would wager we get an answer this weekend or early next week. Anything before that is just a bonus!
  14. I wonder if they will personally mail customized rejection letters to us.
  15. Oklahoma you have to live near the base, pretty sure minimal to none of the pilots have other jobs other than full time AGR, so they don't really want to hear about being part-time with airline, mostly because none of them do it and they want 100% committed guy in their squadron. This mostly pertains to OK though.
  16. I reported the CFI, apparently she was trying to teach in 2 schools at once so there was a lot of drama. As for my career, I'm putting applications on hold until I get this figured out, and re-test. The dream is still there but I need to put in way more time if I want it to happen. I appreciate all of your advice and support. What are you talking about? I downvoted him because he badgered me for my school, CFI, and DPE then ghosted me and is ignoring me. Gave him a lot of personal info and now he's just being silent with me. Punk move. Also I was playing around with you because that video was hilarious, if you didn't get that joke. Get a grip bro, you aren't a special FBI agent who just discovered the smoking gun!
  17. Well dude, just because it didn't happen to you didn't mean it didn't happen. The ECAC in Nashua has a horrendous reputation. The one in Bedford has an excellent reputation. I would never recommend anyone to go to the one in Nashua, but I could recommend the one in Bedford. And my CFI is very dramatic and I'm now seeing she is a very bad one. I'll just PM you the details, don't want too much to be public.
  18. Would you mind sharing your scores so we can compare packages? Would you mind sharing your scores so we can compare packages?
  19. Welp, time to get the waiver to retake the AFOQT a third time. I've already scheduled to retake the TBAS here soon. Thanks man I appreciate it. I think my old school is a scam artists dream. I've scheduled a mock check ride with my new school and we will see how that goes. I really hope to report back with good news and maybe even secure that Wisconsin interview slot next year :)
