JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas – Eligible active duty officers interested in undergraduate flying training must apply by Nov. 29 to be considered by the UFT selection board, which convenes here Jan. 14, Air Force Personnel Center officials said.

The board will review candidates for fiscal year 2014/2015 training requirements in the pilot, remotely piloted aircraft, combat systems officer and air battle manager categories.

Applicants must meet age and commission date criteria – born April 1, 1984 or later and total federal service commissioned date after April 1, 2009 – and must have squadron commander or equivalent endorsement, said Maj. Andrew Larson, AFPC assignments officer.

“Commanders who support applicants competing on this board must agree to release their officers for short-notice assignments as early as April 2014,” he said. “In addition, applicants selected for pilot training, to include RPA pilots, must attend medical flight screening prior to entry into Initial Flight Screening or RPA Flight Screening.”

Applicants must complete the Air Force Form 215, Aircrew Training Candidate Data Summary, and email completed, endorsed packages to the personnel center by Nov. 29.

“November is just around the corner, so Airmen interested in UFT should start working their application packages now,” Larson said. “Don’t wait until the last minute or the opportunity may pass you by.”
