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 upfrontIt 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.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 couldWhat 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.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.Got a Pilot slot! My commander said there were approximately 200 slots given. Good luck to everyone.
I think its kind of all over the place at the moment. I have had classmates report to UPT 2 months after commissioning and others took over a year. I also have a friend who commissioned last week and is reporting to UPT in January.
