Default Separating/retiring military pilots...

If you flew something with a civilian equivalent type rating:

https://registry.faa.gov/TypeRatings/

APPLY FOR THE TYPE RATING!

READ:

14 CFR ß 61.73 - Military pilots or former military pilots: Special rules.




https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/14/61.73


Itís a real cheap resume booster and will do you more good than the bogus masters degree you did and squadron officerís school put together...

I totally agree that itís a free resume booster for the airlines. However, so is a masters degree, your mil equivalent CFI, etc. The more you can make yourself stand out from the crowd, the faster you will wind up where you want to be. Donít be that guy who thinks all military guys are entitled to a high paying gig and then canít understand why they have to polish their resume at a regional. Not so much aimed at you excargodog as some of the folks Iíve seen flub the transition.

Yes, punch every ticket you possibly can. If you're faced with choosing one out of two or more available tickets, then get some advice before you decide.

But absolutely collect all freebies such as FAA ratings for anything you did in the mil. That stuff adds points to your computer score, which at some airlines is the only way to ever get a human's attention.

I notice you pointedly DID NOT try to defend squadron officers school though.

There are definite limits to my defense of the value of PME. SOS, like community college of the Air Force, adds nothing of value to a resume or your professional abilities. I hate the box checking exercise that all of this frequently reduces to. However, I like the idea of a masters degree or type rating that enhances your career options.
