The 142nd Wing is always looking for the best. Routinely, the 142nd Wing hires qualified candidates to attend Undergraduate Pilot Training. Unlike active duty F-15 Eagle pilots, the wing's pilots are a mix of full time, part time and Air Sovereignty Alert pilots allowing flexibility with full time jobs and other careers. All are dedicated to the base's mission... providing the highest caliber F-15 squadron in the world.
The 142nd Wing routinely hires candidates to attend UPT. The mission of the 123rd Fighter Squadron "Redhawks" is to provide Air Sovereignty Alert for the Northwestern United States as well as projecting air power to foreign theaters as an expeditionary arm of the US Air Force. The normal flow of events for a UPT hire is to attend officer school (if necessary), complete UPT, complete Introduction to Fighter Fundamentals, complete F-15 Eagle Formal Training Unit at Kingsley Field and then come back to Portland for approximately two years of seasoning/upgrades. After that, the needs of the base and the performance of the pilot will dictate what jobs he/she will flow on to.

The next hiring board for pilots who are already rated via a military pilot training program will be in February 2022. Unfortunately, due to training limitations, we are only considering applicants who are currently qualified in the F-15C/E, F-22, F-35, F-16, F/A-18E/F or previously qualified in the F-15C/E. Pilots who meet these requirements should e-mail Lt Col Jon “Sick” Friedman at email@example.com for more information.
