The 163rd is now accepting UPT applications to fly the mighty A-10C in the great state of IN! See attached announcement for details.  Please read carefully and follow the directions as stated.  If you have any questions about the application, the A-10, or the Blacksnakes, don't hesitate to ask.

I have been receiving a lot of emails asking if we will be hosting any rushing events or allowing visitations.  In order to be able to evaluate each applicant equally and without potential bias, we will not be hosting or allowing base visits during our application window. 
If selected for an interview, you will have plenty of time to get to know the Blacksnake’s.

Anyone hear back about interviews for the 190th yet?

Nothing so far. Thinking that they would've notified interview selects by now, unless they miraculously extended their own deadline.

Has anyone heard of guys/gals who were rated pilots in other airframes who then later transitioned over to a guard/reserve fighter slot? 

Yes it has happened. Definitely much lower chances though if you’re coming from a non-fighter

The posting said interview candidate announcements would come between Dec. 1st-5th. So I'm assuming we didn't get interviews.

I did try emailing them for feedback but haven't heard anything yet from that either.

TX slots are not numerous, chances of success are pretty much 100% if your transitioning from another fighter (vs. coming from a non-fighter background), and if you do TX from a non-fighter, you’re starting over as the “young, inexperienced” guy…except you’re a Maj instead of a LT/young Capt. Those are the three big hurdles. Not impossible to get past, but it’s hard, even for the greatest bros out there.

I could just be overthinking things with the holidays and all, but has anyone heard back from the 314 ARS at Beale on interviews?

I wouldn’t expect to hear anything until next week at the earliest. Most units do minimum manning for the holidays so it’s probably been at the very back of their minds. Good luck, I was going to apply before I got picked up at another unit. I grew up in that area and would love to go back one day.

Hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. Wanted to check here to see if anyone heard from the Texas ANG out of Fort Worth on their upcoming boards? 

Facebook still showing TBD--maybe soon, though!:
