Pilot slot woo! ....UPT bases? [Apr. 29th, 2010|03:56 pm]


So apparently we need to pick our base pref right away... Any pros/cons you guys have heard of? I heard good and bad things about Whiting, but more bad because coming back to the AF afterwards sucks. Is there a real big difference between Navy/AF/ENJJPT UPT? What about Vance vs Columbus vs Laughlin? Any light shed on this topic would be appreciated. Thanks.

I thought you had to apply for Sheppard separately since it's where ENJJPT is located; everyone flies T-38's.
Maybe they changed things since I was at the Academy. If you wanna go fast and be guaranteed it Sheppard would go first. I hope it's not too late.

Sheppard is no longer guaranteed fighters, I think the policy now is you are guaranteed the T-38s but you can still get heavies after completing training. Sometimes other bases have more students get fighters than ENJJPT, thats what Ive heard.
