Any word if we are going to hear back about the supplemental board this week or next?
They say it will announce the first week of October.
Can anybody else confirm that the supplamental boards have been released?
Haven't heard anything about them being released. I think they are supposed to release next week.
According to the buzz in my groupme from field training the results came out late this afternoon (about 3 hours ago) but you know how those rumors go....
Well, hopefully everyone is notified on Monday haha. It's been a long wait, only a few more days I guess. No one in my groupme has heard, but I wouldn't doubt if some people found out already.
Boards out, good luck!
indeed they are, got picked up for RPA. 62 PCSM 3.1 GPA 5/12 CC ranking. Hopefully I can get bumped up to pilot in the next board but hey it's still better than nothing
Got a Pilot slot! My commander said there were approximately 200 slots given. Good luck to everyone.
Congrats. I would assume that if 200 slots were given out, there must have been 200 spots that were taken back after they were given out last year. My son went with three others to Wright Patterson for their Pilot Medical and he was the only one that passed. Two went down to RPA and cant remember what happened to the last one.
Yeah I went to Wright Patterson over the summer and we lost 4 out of 20 I believe due to medical.
I am curious, when you went to Wright Patterson, what position were you original given
I was originally given RPA, I was missing the LEAD or field training portion of my score due to a medical deferral. I received RPA in the February boards. I went to my physical in July as well as LEAD.
That is great. It all worked out for you. Again congrats. It is a great achievement.
On the other hand does anybody the dates for the 2018 rated board yet?
Thank you! I appreciate it! Now to get through UPT
What most likely happened is that they reevaluated and need more rated slots in general, not that they were all eliminated. The Air Force and military in general are expanding like crazy now.
That sounds right except there are still only 4 UPT bases, have the same number of training planes and they are already running at capacity. Not sure how they could fit more people in. It would be great if they could
It would be great and they're working on it. I'm in another rated career field and am seeing the same thing happening. Our dates are pushed months beyond what they typically are and more are coming.
We are all curious how long he will be home before he has to go to UPT. I know that they typically go in even before their class starts. My wife and I would love to spend some time with him before he goes in. The worse part is waiting for his orders. Will he have 4 months at home, 6 months or possible a year at home? It would be nice to know upfront
