ASTB Success!

To get into OCS with a flight contract, one must pass a written/computerized test battery and then take an additional physical in Pensacola, FL.  Last week I took my Aviation Selection Test Battery (ASTB) and passed with a perfect score!  Some of the recruiters had never seen a perfect score before, so I was thrilled as I had to study in between my final round of college finals ever.  The study guide was very helpful, so if you are thinking of going pilot, that is your ticket in based on my personal experience.

Now in June to complete my application I am going to be flown down to Pensacola for a few days of physicals, and I’ll let you know what that entails!

    Good job. Inching closer to the prize.

  2. How did you do with your Flight Physical??

    I received my Wings in Sept. of l958 — went right to
    the first F8 Crusader Squadron at El Toro MCAS — VMF-323. From F9Fs to Crusaders was quite a Leap!

    Loved it — then flew A4 Skyhawks in the Marine Reserves at NAS Alameda (VMA l33) while getting my MBA at CAL.

    Hopefully you were successful in passing your Flight Physical and will be on your way to Flight Training.

    Lots of Good Luck….

    Semper Fidelis,

    Hi Don,

    Thanks for your service, my hat is off to you and your career sounds very interesting!

    I guess no news is good news, so I think I passed my physicals. My package is on its way to the boards and they are apparently meeting in late August.

    So I will have to wait 6 weeks or so probably until I hear back.

    Thanks for the comment, and tips you’d like to share I’ll put on this blog for you.
