  • ANG to Active Duty pilot

    Posted by Gillian on August 16, 2023 at 10:03 am

    Hello! I’m an A1C in the ANG currently going through the weather forecaster schoolhouse. I have my PPL and my goal is to become an Active-Duty pilot by going through OTS. When I’m done with the weather training in a few months, I plan on getting my bachelor’s degree. I was just wondering, is there anything now I could be doing now to reach my goals?

    Thank you!

    @Gillian Here’s your to-do list:
    1. Finish your degree ASAP (extra credit hours, summer classes…keep grinding until it’s complete)

    2. Maintain a good GPA (>3.0) while executing #1

    3. Be the best A1C/Weather Forecaster in the Air Force. Earn strong EPRs and letters of recs from your supervisors. Let them know what your goals are and show them how hard you’re willing to work for it.

    4. Knock the AFOQT and TBAS out of the park. You get 2 (maybe 3 depending on getting a waiver approved) chances to achieve the most competitive scores you can get. Everything is “superscored” so you should plan on taking both twice since it can only help your scores. You need three months in between attempts.

    At this stage, nothing else really matters until 1-4 are covered.

    Good luck!
