To give a brief background I am currently 28 years old and I applied to the rated board. Before my package was even evaluated, it was thrown out because I turn 30 roughly 4.5 months after I commission. One of the officers previewing my package was concerned that I would not be able to start before my birthday. I realize that my process would need to be expedited, but from what I can find I am still technically qualified to apply. I am also a six-year USAF veteran, so I am wondering if anyone here has heard of any waivers that apply to prior service cadets or the age requirements. I know the ANG has an age waiver, but you have to be selected by the board in order to apply for the waiver. I was also told that if I put that I was interested in RPA, then I would be allowed to meet the next board in August because RPA has an age waiver. I am not very interested in RPA, and I am much more interested in Pilot or CSO. If anyone has any ideas on what regulations to begin my search or who to contact (other that cadre) I would really appreciate it.
