Getting the word out everywhere today with all of our technology and digital interfacing and messaging, it’s a bit of a thrust to see through the cloudiness of just where to begin in these flowing data floods and massive electronic windstorms.
Search no more. This information here is packaged up so seeing thru the storm is much clearer.
The 314th Air Refueling Squadron based at Beale Air Force Base, California, is searching through the data flood, too, for qualified candidates to apply for undergraduate pilot training.
The undergraduate pilot training program is referred to as UPT. The inaugural class of Undergraduate Pilot Training was just over 50 years ago. It is still going strong.
This is one reason the Air Force Reserve and the 314th Air Refueling Squadron to date are not experiencing a pilot shortage. Yet, the wing is looking to recruit for these positions.
These slots are extremely competitive so be ready and prepared.
There are numerous resources available online in the digital storm to learn more about the undergraduate pilot training.
Still the best resource will always be a retired or current Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard pilot to navigate an interested citizen through it all and get the real Air Force experience.
It is encouraged to contact the 314th Air Refueling Squadron and plan a visit with the squadron crew and meet the members. At best, it could be a great chance to be selected for an interview.
Also, when making application as a potential new hire the applicant does not have to meet the requirement of being a former or current member of the military to apply for a pilot position.
Contact the 314th Air Refueling Squadron at 314Aircrew.Hiring@us.af.mil today.
Lt. Col. Phillip Austin and 1Lt Matthew Eager encourage you to call the swing space to schedule a time to come and visit. Contact number: 530-634-1594.
