Pilot slots are extremely competitive, and your application directly affects your chances of getting an interview.  Without an interview, you’ll never be hired, so you need to stand out from the pack – but in a good way.  Too often, applicants stand out for all the wrong reasons; incomplete paperwork, spelling/grammar errors, incoherent cover letters, and unorganized resumes.  The one thing that all of these ill-fated applicants have in common is the belief that their applications were perfect when they were submitted.

This application is a major hurdle standing between you and a life-altering multi-million-dollar career change, family stability, and/or that dream aircraft or location.  The opportunity is too big to wing it.  Let one of our BogiDope Coaches be your professional second set of eyes and application mentor.

Send us your entire application package, and we’ll review everything line-by-line before our first 1-on-1 consultation.  We’ll then help you edit, organize, and articulate your background to make your strengths and experience jump off the page.  Additionally, we’ll give you our honest feedback on how competitive you currently are and highlight any areas for improvement.

You’ve worked hard to fill your application with impressive credentials.  Our job is to help make sure the hiring board notices so you can start filling your calendar with interview invitations!

    Add more templates for cover letters.

    DJ knows his stuff and is super down to Earth. Awesome coach.

  2. End of Session Survey Response

    CHOAS was an outstanding coach and I would look to him again in the future for anything ANG related. He did an outstanding job with both sessions. I felt he put in a lot of time and effort to provide me with some great feedback.

  3. End of Session Survey Response

    Husky was phenomenal, his feedback was extremely constructive and he was great to work with!

  4. End of Session Survey Response

    I can’t say thank you enough for all the help. Rick was kind, insightful, and provided a hugely valuable perspective on my application. This is probably the best possible way for anyone to prepare for the application process for ANG/UPT.

  5. End of Session Survey Response

    Humpty was incredible. He’s a huge asset.

  6. End of Session Survey Response

    Humpty knows his stuff inside and out. He showed me how to build content in my resume/cover letter that fighter pilots can relate to. I knew I needed to switch some stuff up but didn’t know what it looked like and Humpty taught me what to do.

    Humpty is funny and instilled confidence in me within 5 minutes of talking to him. He’s passionate about fighter aviation and helping the next generation. I’d run through a brick wall if he told me to.

    This course and my 1 on 1 with D.J. was an absolute game changer and absolutely aided in my success of getting hired. I came into this experience with a lot of “corporate America” interviewing skills but had never interviewed with the Guard/Reserve. I got a slot after my first interview. This course and my time with D.J. gave me insight to the perspective the unit has behind each question. This is worth every penny. I cannot recommend it enough!

  8. End of Session Survey Response

    Extremely knowledgeable! Nikki was beyond helpful in breaking down what a hiring board will be looking for.

    Coming from the civilian world, I had a few friends who were in the Air Force. However, whenever I would ask them to proof my documents, I would get a plethora of different opinions without any solution.

    All of the feedback was positive and helped advance my packet towards a more competitive theater. My confidence was boosted by having Nikki give feedback and then provide steps to fix whatever issues may have been apparent.

    AAs an aircraft mechanic at a collegiate flight school, I am surrounded by flight instructors, flight students, and aspiring pilots. Once word got out that I was pursuing the Air National Guard as a pilot, I began to get questions from those around me. The first site I tell them to visit is BogiDope! There is so much information on the website regarding creating a packet, preparing for qualifying tests, UPT pipeline, and so much more! Most of my explanations either lead or end with, “have you checked out Bogidope”? The consultation, prep package, and overall amount of information have been a godsend to help me prepare and feel confident whenever taking the next step towards a UPT slot.

  9. End of Course Survey Response

    Awesome course. Come here to get the competitive edge. Especially with coaches like “Bigs” you’ll thank yourself in the long run instead of crying you didn’t get selected for an interview or slot

  10. End of Course Survey Response

    100% believe this course has given me the tools needed to best pitch who I am to units and land an interview. Nick and Wyatt were extremely helpful, went above and beyond to ensure I had the knowledge and know how to succeed.

  11. End of Session Survey Response

    Wyatt was awesome very professional but still fun to talk to. Lots of helpful info on application and was willing to answer non application related questions.

  12. End of Session Survey Response

    SMAX reached out via email and text. Very flexible, kept me updated via text which was appreciated

  13. End of Session Survey Response

    Nikki did a fantastic job and provided excellent feedback on my resume and cover letter. She really exceeded my expectations. She even stayed longer than the scheduled time to go over some interview questions.

  14. End of Session Survey Response

    Nikki was an excellent coach! Thank you!

  15. End of Course Survey Response

    SIC was awesome, he went above and beyond. He went an hour past our allotted time and provided extremely helpful feedback. I feel beyond encouraged and hopeful for my future. I wish I did this sooner.

  16. End of Course Survey Response

    I found [the App Prep eCourse] really helpful that the resume content was broken down into each section.

    Mr. Haldopoulos provided great feedback and gave me potential paths to pursue that I haven’t considered. Seemed as if there is no one more knowledgeable on the topics than Mr. Haldopoulos. He gave me a clearer path on how to get my foot in the door and on the things I need to focus most on answering.

  17. End of Course Survey Response

    It can’t get more personalized than this. Real coaches–100%. I do lots of self development training and this is hands down the best of the best regarding ultra targeted consulting–straight to results.

  18. End of Course Survey Response

    I have really enjoyed getting to work 1:1 with Duk and Snip. Both were extremely knowledgeable and had great advice all around. I always leave the sessions wanting more because of how knowledgeable each coach is. I have recommended this service to several people.

  19. End of Course Survey Response

    DUK was great and provided a lot of feedback on what I should change on my cover letter and resume. I liked that he offered to record the session so I could reference back to it when I was making the corrections.

  20. End of Course Survey Response

    The information and help I received about my application and the entire hiring process is more then I could have asked for. I was looking someone to help me with my package but never found someone specifically for military pilots, Until I found BogiDope.. My package is now a lot stronger and I am excited to learn more during my Interview prep.

  21. C-17 UPT Selectee

    BogiDope is a one stop shop and their entire team is extremely professional and helpful. I wanted to make sure that I put my all into this process so no matter what happened, I could say I gave it everything. BogiDope and D.J., who was my coach, helped me to polish my personal story and journey and to be able to relate that to the qualities and skills pilot boards are looking for. I had so much clarity after our first session and got lots of great feedback which I was able to then work on prior to the final session. Having two sessions really helped work out any kinks and gave a tremendous amount of confidence heading into my interview. Thanks to the in-depth eCourse and the 2 interview sessions, I was able to land my dream pilot slot first time through. I will be recommending these courses to anyone I meet going through this process.

  22. End of Course Survey Response

    DUK was awesome to work with. He really helped me it across all the important points I wanted to in my package. He was extremely knowledgeable and also receptive to my feedback and suggestions. Overall awesome guy and will seek his help for the interview portion. Thanks again for what y’all are doing!

  23. End of Course Survey Response

    D.J. was great! He was very knowledgeable in what the boards want to see. I really benefited his constructive criticism. I needed someone to tell me which details that I had in my resume/letter were bad. The honesty was greatly appreciated.

    I feel so much better about my resume and cover letter. I think it makes me appear much more desirable.

  24. End of Course Survey Response

    I think a little pricey but the templates and help were awesome.

  25. End of Course Survey Response

    DJ provided great feedback and I fell that he really helped to bring my resume and cover letter to the next level. I feel much more confident and happy with the state of my application.

  26. End of Course Survey Response

    DJ knows his stuff! He took the time to get to know me/what I’m working toward and offered advice regarding how to get there. This was a life-saver. Thank you!!

  27. End of Course Survey Response

    Without D.J.’s help, my application would have been just adequate and far too long.

    The only thing I would say is having one set style potentially makes it obvious that several applicants may have all gone through the same service? The one other thing I’d say is, for those of us that are a bit older and lots of work experience, the format for work and school sections adds some unnecessary lines and shortens the space for details in each bullet. Of course, that also forces brevity, which also has a lot of merit.

    Hopefully I get some interview selections and then get the interview prep package!

  28. End of Course Survey Response

    Very helpful. Looking forward to the interview package

  29. End of Course Survey Response

    “Slap” is a resume, cover letter WIZARD! 10 out of 10 would recommend him to anyone. After I get the job… I don’t need more competition than there already is!

    Friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I hope to see more people on your staff like John. My application is no longer something I worry about.

  30. End of Course Survey Response

    Bender is the man, wealth of knowledge and great with word smithing.

    You guys found a niche market here. This service was really needed. I was lost without you guys. Great job.

  31. End of Course Survey Response

    I believe that I got the information I needed at a reasonable price. That’s saying a lot too because I’m pretty skeptical about paying for these sorta of things, but it was absolutely worth it to get the input I needed.

    John answered all my questions and turned an ok resume and cover letter into a great one!

    Keep providing the service! Lots of people dreaming of being a pilot that don’t know about the Guard or Reserve way!

  32. BFG

    I got picked up by the 171st ARS which is my local unit so I couldn’t be happier. I have no doubt that the app review we did together helped push me to the top of their list. You guys do great work for the community so I’m glad I can pass along an opportunity to help someone out.

  33. End of Course Survey Response

    The templates were fantastic and the 1 on 1 advice was very useful. I was able to ask about additional things to make myself more competitive and I feel way more confident I am ready to send out my packet.

  34. End of Course Survey Response

    Thanks for the help and support

  35. blueskier91

    Thank you again for helping me with my resume and cover letter a few months back. I wanted to let you know that I was selected for an interview in April with the 357 AS at Maxwell AFB, the squadron I was hoping for. All of your help was definitely worth it. In the next couple weeks, I do plan to purchase the interview prep to ensure that I will be completely prepared!

    Thanks again for everything.
