    Hey everyone, my name is Zayan Danho and I’ve been looking to join the National Air Guard as a pilot. I’ve spoken to a few recruiters and am working on my private pilot’s license but I wanted to reach out to pilots or those in the guard to be able to connect, see how life and things are in the guard in Colorado, and come down and meet some of those in the unit and guard. Wanted to get advice on the best way to be able to do that!

    How to rush an Air National Guard unit? There’s no one way to do this so I’ll suggest some different approaches. First off, do some research online to learn more about the unit; Google, Wikipedia, are all your friends! Also, BogiDope and MilRecruiter offer you a map of all the flying squadrons in the US and territories. You can click on the units you are interested in and eventually get to a potential POC name and number listed from their last hiring board. That might be a good place to start. Anyone you can meet affiliated with that organization would be a great find; doesn’t have to be a pilot. Once you get a foot in the door, keep digging until you find an opportunity to meet pilots in the unit. Squadrons will have social events leading up to hiring boards so that would be another, more direct way to rush units as well. Spend some time researching on BogiDope so you can learn more of the lingo prior to rushing. Good luck!
