158th who?

My apologies for the lack of specificity there; the 158th Airlift Squadron out of Savannah, GA—C-130’s! That could easily be confused with the 158th FW out of Vermont, too, I’m sure and duly noted for the future.

Any word from the 114th on zoom interviews? I realize that the window for packages closed only last week but they say they're slotted for the 15/16th so I'm assuming they'll be reaching out soon...

Does anyone have any insight on how the zoom initial interviews go when there are two interviews? I have only seen listings with one interview.

Sorry brother, I can't say that I do! I've never done an initial phone/Zoom interview before, but I've figured I'd prepare for it just like I would a "final interview", if that makes sense, if I were selected for one.

Something tells me it's more of a lightweight screening to whittle things down even more for squadrons that likely see 150+ applicants, perhaps based on a few key questions and responses and maybe even personality/energy once matching a real person with the application package. But yeah, that said, I'd say prepare for it like it's for all the marbles and I'm sure you'll do great if put in that position!

And on a slightly different note...

Anybody hear anything from the 158th AS or the 175th FS this week?

Just a head's up: It looks like the 175th FS will be having the Zoom interviews be via video submission instead, with a few prescribed prompts/questions for us to answer; we should find out on July 15th if we've been selected for submission of said video.

Best of luck to all of you; hopefully we can all get some good news next week!

EDIT: Fighter SQUADRON, not Fighting WING, my sincerest apologies for any confusion there guys, and edited to correct!

Looks like the 115th fighter wing out of Madison has posted a UPT board! Open for current military members only though. So for anyone able to apply check it out! If you google “115th fighter wing upt” the posting comes up.

158th AS sent out interview invites yesterday, good luck to those who were invited!

Got it—thanks man! Looks like I wasn’t on that list then, but best of luck to those who were!

Does "current military members" mean only individuals that are currently a member of the 115th FW? Thanks

From the 115FW’s website:

“NOTE: This board will be for CURRENT active military members ONLY.”

(Edit: Reading it over again, maybe “active” in this context ≠ active duty. Definitely worth emailing the POC for clarification and maybe reporting back here. I wouldn’t be eligible to apply however that restriction is interpreted, so I’m not going to bug the POC with an email from a non-applicant.)

https://www.115fw.ang.af.mil/About/Careers/Pilot-Training/

POC is 176fs.upt@gmail.com and I’m sure you’d get a straight answer there.

My unsolicited $0.02 below:

I agree that it does seem like a strange restriction. It sounds like it would preclude 115th FW enlisted/non-rated commissioned traditional Guard members from applying, who are often the main beneficiaries of UPT board restrictions. For example, I think the 104th FW in Mass restricted their last UPT board to members of their wing, which is easier for me understand the rationale behind.

But if it really is only open to current active duty servicemembers of any branch like it seems to be, that could be an awesome opportunity for some applicants. As someone who began applying while still on active duty, I was aware that even though my enlisted experience was (in my own subjective opinion) “impressive,” it would have to be hard for board members to rack and stack me or other enlisted types in their mid-20s against, for instance, a civilian CFI in their early 20s with a more well-known alma mater and a STEM degree.

There are young CFIs and Ivy League STEM grads on active duty, of course. But not as many as there are on the civilian side. So this could definitely be a great board to stand out at, if you’re on active duty and have done some interesting things in your career.

I emailed a few days ago and no response so I called and asked them about the phrasing and recruiting poc for them said they had no idea.
 

edit* it’s open to any military. Just not to civilians.

I’d say if you fit any definition of “current active military member,” then just send the app. The worst that can happen is they say no.

First time poster,

Has anyone heard from the 175th FS if they got selected to send them a video yet?

I have not, so I imagine that means no.

I have not either, so assuming means no as well.

on another note, do y’all think it’s better to apply earlier than the last couple weeks of an application period for these squadrons? Usually I wait for the last week or two to make sure I have the most updated flight hours in my package but thinking maybe being earlier would help
