Hello all,
I am starting this thread for the Pilot/NFO board that will be taking place Oct. 2, 2018. This will be the first board for FY-19. I will post my stats below and welcome others to do the same, maybe we can get someone to start an excel sheet. Anyways, feel free to post questions, concerns, or anything else involving this board. Packages are due in a few weeks so I assume that anyone putting in for this board is either finished with their package or pretty close to it. Good luck to you all!!

This isn't the first board of the FY19, the April/May board picked candidates for FY19 as well.

Honest opinion is that your first two numbers are below average, the second two are above average. I actually haven't seen any applicant in the last two boards with scores like yours. The May board had some accepted with ~50/5/6/6.

I’m not going to lie, it’s been awhile since I’ve done the math, reading, & mechanicals because my college being a CTI institutional university so I did lack that knowledge. My recruiter figured my scores would look like this with my lack of general knowledge but with my flying experience and aviation knowledge.

Did your OR tell you your prospective pilot score by chance?

My OR did the calculator that they use and after inputting my scores, mine came out to be ‘green’, meaning high chance of getting selected. Is that what your OR used as well? My OR is almost guaranteeing I’m going to get it with my experience and the pilot score. What about you?

Even though they told me that, I still want other opinions you know? Also, just see how everyone else is doing as well.

I have heard a good rule of thumb is anything over 90 you have a very good chance of getting selected. Personally I am a 95 for pilot and 93 for NFO. But unfortunately I will need to get LASIK in order to apply for Pilot.
