They are continuing with the hiring process to get you to that point of a job offer and start date at FLETC. From what I have read though, once you get to FLETC you are locked in for quarantine for two weeks, than begin the 5 months of training and are not allowed off base or to have visiters the whole 5 months. Not sure if you are allowed to bring your girlfriend with you?

WacoQCF I see you are already there.. or were there? What was the July announcement? A hiring announcement? I am curious now when the last person interviewed in OKC and got a job offer?

Do you have a QCF? My dad has an RNF and we are in the process of bringing it back to life, really like to fly it.

Was going to throw this in that last post but after ten minutes you cant edit posts..., I have never flown an open cockpit yet, ton of Super Cub time but no biplane, have to get the Warner 110 rebuilt, maybe going with a bigger 145 and finish recovering it.. will be a couple years but cant wait to fly it.

I have now taken 2 polygraphs. One that was well over 70 questions and the cbp one. Just be honest, literally. If they say you are hiding something. Say exactly what thoughts are running through your mind. I mean exactly. You saying "nothing" or "I've never done blank" is not being 100% transparent and getting defensive does not help either.

Just my 2 cents. Complete honesty is telling them exactly what your thinking.

Former 9 year AIA; they had a hiring announcement that closed in July and I was curious if any pure civilians were offered an interview.

Yes, I fly a 1931 Waco QCF2. :)

Just FYSA...I went to OKC in February and was offered the job on the spot. My original class date was the end of April. Now I go beginning of September. Just some information and timelines.

I was a "straight civilian" and interviewed in OKC 2 weeks ago. Currently waiting for a class date for the academy.

I hate to beat this question up cause I know it's already been asked but I know things change also so I dont think it hurts to ask these days. Also looking through the thread is tedious cause it's so large.

I have pretty much filled out my application paper work but one section has me stalled and that's the locations for new hires. Im dual rated. I fly Blackhawks as a reservist and I fly CRJs for my civilian job. I basically would like to.fly 60s (or Astars) and fix wing if I have the opportunity (not entirely opposed to flying the drones...atleast I think im not)

What locations offer flying like I'm looking for and a decent area to live in with kids (I understand that is subjective but we all have common sense)

I have considered the Puerto Rico location for I am understanding that they fly a lot but as a reservist I think I will have a very hard time fulfilling that commitment and there is no KCM to get me to do drill and the like so I think it's a bad move for my situation.
