Has anyone else received an email from the 181st AS in Fort Worth saying that you would be contacted by the selecting official to set up an interview? It was kind of a bizarre email. Just curious if anyone has heard anything else.

I received the same around three weeks ago. Haven't heard back yet.

Who is going to be in Oregon the weekend of Jan. 12th? Also when is the Ohio F-16 unit going to open their board up? 

Hey man! I'll be there Jan 12th for their meet and greet. If you want to meet up before hand let me know.

It's just heartbreaking because OK and Bama were my top places to be. I'm unsure what to do with myself now to be honest. I can't believe this happened to me. I just don't know what to do anymore. I've done everything I can and it all resulted in being told no and that hurts. It's pretty unfair that some people get interviews and others don't. You should at least be given the chance to interview before being shot down. This whole process makes so many people anxious and unhealthy. There should be a better way to do it.

Not the attitude I want in my fighter squadron and its ignorant to all the other possibilities out there.

If you think this place is totally anonymous you'd be wrong.

If anyone's going to be in Klamath Falls tomorrow night and wants to grab dinner and a beer let me know - I should be getting in sometime between 7-8. Otherwise if anyone has any recommendations I'm all ears!

Pease ANGB in New Hampshire is having a Rated and Non-Rated board in March. Paperwork due in Feb. Link:

https://www.157arw.ang.af.mil/Units/157th-Operations-Group/133rd-Air-Refueling-Squadron/

Pilot hiring link at the bottom. Just left AD and have been a part timer for 2 months now. Great unit with great people. Candidate will go directly to the KC-46. No Tanker experience required.  UPT age waivers possible, but not guaranteed. PM me if interested and I’ll get you in touch with the POC. Cheers.

Oh sh!t Boise just had a board? I didn't see it on Bogidope, do you have to contact them directly to get board info? 

Yeah, packages were due back in October.  I only found out by asking the 190th personally when their next boards would be held.  Shared the info with my fellow interviewees during the 107th FS boards but did not post it on here as I had not used this site before.  When all else fails, never be afraid to just call the squadron and ask!!! 😀

I'll be landing in the early afternoon on Thursday, but I may not be available Thursday night. Shoot me a message and we'll figure it out.

Gents - I am planning to do a Palace Front and already looking at units I am interested in applying (West Coast).  Story short,  did not get an AD Pilot slot so I pursuing Guard/Reserve because... of course I want to fly!


Awesome! If you haven’t already, I’d start a “What are my chances” thread. You can get some good advice there too!

Check bogidope for upcoming boards too! Fresno and Oregon both have packets due at the beginning of February.

Copy. I will look into the thread.  I am already looking into the Bogidope website (it's dope = straight shooter; no pun intended). Long story short, pursuit for AD UPT slot did not pan out this year despite my UPT-worthy scores, but oh well.  I have my PPL so that's a plus and some AD experience.

Sounds like Fresno and Oregon will be holding their boards on the same weekend. Oregon on March 2 - 3, with two rounds of interviews (1st round Saturday, second round Sunday). Fresno on the 3rd. Massachusetts will have their social on the 1st as well. Interesting...

Is it just me or do reserve units seem to hire less? There's a couple I really have my eye on but i haven't seen much from them. Do they do things a little different? One unit told me they wouldn't be hiring for a couple years which seemed quite odd

I doubt you'd be able to update your application during that window, although someone with experience can correct me if I'm wrong. But for sure you could mention it during the interview if you completed your PPL, got an additional rating, doubled your flying hours etc.

EDIT: Looks like I was wrong (not surprising hah). Good to know.
