The recruiter got back to me and informed me that my waiver is at the flight chief level. What does that mean? Also, what are the next steps in the process; how many more people review the waiver before a decision is made?

That's the recruiter's boss. He or she recommends approval or disapproval, then it goes to operations who does a QC for accuracy, then to the commander who makes the ultimate decision. In some units this takes a week, in others it takes months.

Thanks for your response. Does this mean I should be expecting a call from the flight chief and/or commander? Or do I get the news after the decision is made. Just trying to get an idea of what is to come. Also, given the current process Iím in, what is a reasonable estimate of how long I have until Iím at BMT? Thanks again.

Every unit is different. They may or may not call. You'd have to ask your recruiter. Your recruiter will tell you when it is approved or disapproved.

So my recruiter submitted the waiver on April 25th. And I have received any calls or updates. I reached out to my recruiter a few weeks ago and he notified me that the flight chief was reviewing it. With that being said, where is the waiver now? Is it on the commanders desk waiting for him to look at it? The long process is killing me. Any advice would help.

Other AF peoples lives depend on you ablitity to hold it together under pressure so chill out so the commander can gage your steadiness. Or not............

When the flight chief is done, it goes to operations to review it for perfect accuracy. They check to see that everything is 100% correct in the package based on internal checklists. This can take 3 days to 3 months, depending on the operations department. Then, it often goes to the operations commander (an O3) for another review, and then to the commander. Sometimes the whole entire process takes a week, sometimes 6 months. Only your recruiter can tell you the typical time for your area.

Thank you for the information. My recruiter just informed me that the squadron commander has it now. I’m guessing this is a good sign so far. It’s been 1 year 7 months since the DUI and have kept a clean record since. What do you think my chances are?
