  1. 7 weekers BEWARE!!! It's so long I couldn't take it but congrats to everyone selected! I finished glad I never have to do WOCS again! Prepare yourself for many games! May the ODDS be in your favor Candidates!
  2. Be in shape everyone I repeat! Be in shape last day with my phone goodluck to all of you!!
  3. With that new EO things got shaken up a bit I'm sure for all these airlines and it will be interesting to see how things go for the next few years PSA increased their hours from the 750 to 1000 but I'm sure everyone wont follow that. These companies know military aviators for the most part are top tier. It's only a matter of time before all regionals say " "F" it you all win please just fly for us". They don't want to lose routes and they don't want to miss out on aviators taking there talents to other countries such as America #2 cough cough Canada lol. What a time to be a pilot this is awesome honestly.
  4. Its been a while since we posted anything on this thread. But "ANOTHER" RTP program has been born with Horizon and Compass Airlines. The future is looking bright apparently $41.00 an hour for a 1year First Officer. And this is no hoax more regionals are beginning to follow suit. They don't have to compete with just the Army (or any Military branch) and each other anymore. International Airlines are poaching as well! Japan, China, and Dubai from a few news article I've read. "decisions, decisions".
  5. Lindsey you're a forum legend around here I tell ya!
  6. From my experience which was at the beginning of the year they want to make sure the flight physical is stamped and approved. It kind of protects them from selecting someone who isn't qualified. It's a mandatory piece of the packet. But each board is different but I don't see them giving you an okay without a stamped physical.
  7. I think the Army just needs to emulate the Airforce in terms of how they treat pilots and how they are compensated.
  8. But with the industry today and airlines hurting for pilots don't you think the furloughing is done especially with almost every company in aviation being some type of Union?
  9. This is why I like picking all you veteran aviators minds. Every active warrant has told me essentially the same thing especially if I want to make flying a career. And even some at my unit told me Active Flying isn't what it's cracked out to be anymore which I think sucks for people going in with the expectation of flying a lot. Do you think the bonuses will get better for active if this entire heightened state of War is imminent? As for the entire regional thing yes they're definitely poaching pilots like crazy. I feel I made the best choice for getting the best of both worlds in the guard without a doubt.
  10. Why would you choose Guard over AD? Just love seeing what Active aviators view as pros and cons and I see you're a prominent poster and well respected in these forums. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks! (I'm in the Guard just waiting to leave for flight school since January...... )
  11. My buddy made it it's crazy how high selection rates are it's awesome but once again a very lucrative flying career outside the military means they have to make flying much more attractive to trained aviators I love this everyone get in now while the getting is good! Glad to see so many people selected !
  12. Welcome to the army haha that really sucks but usually how things roll. You're preparing for orders or a board and it's always pushed back due to some shenanigans it's the worst I definitely understand your pain haha I was selected January still haven't left for flight school just "Hurry up and wait", no truer statement sigh....
  13. Yeah you should be fine. I'm in the guard and heard from some people that active duty is hurting for pilots right now and everything is in reverse. Active duty has all the aircraft no pilots while Guard/Reserve have tons of pilots no aircraft because Active duty has taken majority of them back. And selection rates are in the 90% from another Chief I spoke with. As long as you have everything lined up correct you're good to go man no better time to get into aviation with all thats going on. So many aviators retiring or ETS'ing early because all these bonuses regionals are offering for military pilots. I've heard for every 1 pilot that graduates Flight school 2 retire the same day, so take that for what it is whether factual or not definitely would ease my mind a little if I were going through this selection process.
  14. Then you're on the right path just keep going for it is all I can say. As far as boards I have no clue I'm in the guard I don't like being hooah 24/7 personal choice lol. Plus I like where I live I couldn't imagine being in Alaska, or Ft Polk for years on end hard pass. Turn it in let us know I heard the results to this board comes out in two weeks. Goodluck
