Curious if anyone knows the answer to this: does the AFRC UPT board require a PPL for approval? I’ve been sponsored by a unit, FC1 complete, etc the whole nine yards- but I don’t have a PPL yet. My recruiter is making me nervous that I won’t get picked up during the Jan board.

 

any insight would be appreciated… oh and since I’m here

 

AFOQT: Feb 2021

TBAS: Feb 2021

FC1: Sep 2021

Interviewed and accepted: Oct 2021

AFRC UPT Board: hopefully Jan??

UPT: ???

Dude you’ll be fine. It would be another story if you were unsponsored. I had 0 manned hours when I was picked up.

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.

Just waiting on dates now. Anybody else have an idea on timelines? Playing the game lining up my spot in the process with other timelines to try and get some idea as to when OTS & UPT might happen.

Guard, off-the-street:

 

Selected - Jan ‘21

MEPS Approved - March ‘21

FC1 Approved - April ‘21

Officially Gained - Sept ‘21

NGB Submission - Jan ‘22
 

Hoping I can get OTS in late spring/early summer, and hit UPT ASAP after that…fingers crossed as the process has slowed a good bit after moving much faster out of the gate than anticipated.

Just finished up at WP and required an OCT waiver (thinner than normal, behind the retina). The docs said this is a rubber stamp waiver and should be approved no problem...will see if that holds true. I'm curious if anyone has completed their FC1 in recent weeks/months and has any idea of current timeline for receiving FC1 stamps/notification of approval.

I went to WP early February of last year and had to get a waiver for exotropia. FC1 was stamped approved w/ waiver at the end of March.
