    This is great to hear, but possibly conflicts with another recent thread that describes how some PQ '21 cadets who wanted pilot slots didn't receive them. Someone wrote that only approx. 400 pilot slots dropped (excluding 50 or so RPA slots). If so, why would senior leadership want an...

    Jobs dropping at USAFA today !!

    I also seem to recall various leadership in public forums promoting the same basic message. Of course, they always dropped the official "air force needs come first" (and I get that), but that didn't get in the way of a clear message that if you got through USAFA and were PQ'd, you would get a...

    Any sense about how many in '21 who are PQ and wanted a pilot slot but didn't get one? (And let's ignore RPA slots for the moment.) 400 is low for USAFA.

    Anyone have any info (or an informed guess) as to what percentage of cadets seeking (manned-) UPT pilot slots were nonetheless assigned to RPA slots? And is this trend increasing over time for USAFA (and pilot-qualified) grads? All of the RPA slot data that I can find fold in those who...

    USMA lengthens service obligation to 6 yrs??

    For me it's that USMA is treating members of the Class of 2024 differently when it comes to ADSOs. And this different treatment doesn't look like it results from any cadet decision/selection (e.g., BRADSO, branching decisions) or, frankly, without the cadets even knowing about it during the...
