Crew Dawg (2/4)



  1. Just so people are aware, seems that all age waivers are frozen at NGB right now. A3 is reaching back to units for justification on a case by case basis.
  2. 185th in OKC is hiring CSO's if anyone reading this is interested.
  3. Very tight lipped. Honestly impressive. We heard rumblings this morning so I was trying to confirm. Looks like we were both on the same scent.
  4. https://www.defense.gov/News/Contracts/Contract/Article/3112446/
  5. Exciting news! Where'd you hear this?
  6. Looks like this announcement is for FMS. Interesting timing none the less. https://investor.textron.com/news/news-releases/press-release-details/2022/Textron-Aviation-Defense-Beechcraft-AT-6E-Wolverine-achieves-Military-Type-Certification-from-the-United-States-Air-Force/default.aspx
  7. Has anyone seen anything regarding the source selection for AO? Is this the best kept secret in the DoD?
  8. Do you know who submits for dates once approval letters are sent out? Is it an internal NGB process or does base training need to submit a formal request?
  9. Doubt anyone is in the same situation but you never know: Prior AD/O3/PPL AFOQT/TBAS: June 2019 FC1: August 2019 Guard Board: Hired August 2020 Separated AD: 1 Aug 2021 NGB Packet Submitted: November 2021 UPT: TBD Does anyone have an idea of how the NGB processes work? Do our packets meet a board? When are the number of training slots assigned? Are they distributed alphabetically by state? Does anyone have a contact? I'm totally in the dark on everything. Somewhat encouraging; NGB did guarantee our squadron a 1 month turn around on CSO dates assuming they receive everything the packet requires. Suggest you follow up with your recruiters just to make sure you don't play the back and forth game.
  10. Go guard/reserves. I was hired at the first one I applied to with scores similar to yours. Ask a series of AD pilots that you know and they will likely push you this direction anyways.
  11. Would love to toss my name into the hat. Thank you for doing this!
  12. How are you testing yourself? In the CCT it will start with the easier ones and get harder as you get them correct. You might be able to find a private office that has a CCT (rare) but those scores will not be accepted. I am actually pretty sure that scores at a standard flight med wont even be taken if they're close to the limit, or if you have failed it in the past. In that case if you do pass at your local flight med i think they'll send you to MFS at WPAFB. Not 100 percent sure though.
  13. Damn, way to persevere, and what an incredible outcome. Excellent advise for anyone that is reading! Ended up passing the CCT with flying colors somehow... even exceeded the mins. FC1 now sits at AETC! While I am here... if anybody needs advise on how to best prepare yourself for a CCT, hit me up. I have strategies!
  14. Stuckindayton, you know a lot about this stuff! Do you see the AF adopting the OBVA CCT like the one in the video sometime soon? I have read some buried AFRL reports stating that they think the Rabin CCT is flawed because clinics use regular, non standardized PC monitors. "Because the current Rabin CCT uses inexpensive displays, the colors will be less stable over time and across different devices than a high-quality monitor. The OBVA CCT mitigates these problems by using a high-quality inplane-switching monitor, which has stable colors over wide angles and over time." source: https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a635957.pdf
