According to the form I downloaded the only place it mentions to try and not use duplicate names is for your actual references. For the employment history of course I am providing supervisor's names and for my education and residence history I will probably use a couple names twice. For example, a roommate in college should be a good contact to verify for your school enrollment AND your residency in that particular town. I have had to dig a little bit.this stuff sucks :yup:
I'm having a hard time coming up with references, especially for the addresses I lived at in college, I wonder if I can use the school since they'd have perfect records. Also can you use the same person multiple times?
going back 5 years puts me in college, everyone has left and I'm out of touch with them, not to mention I don't know that many people to begin withAccording to the form I downloaded the only place it mentions to try and not use duplicate names is for your actual references.

Which forms are you guys talking about? So far I have only received the three basic easy forms... does anyone have a link to the forms or could send them to me, so I can at least start preparing for what they are going to ask for? The forms you have to fill out depend on whether you've been selected for terminal (sf-85) or enroute (sf-86)
What kinds of references are they asking for? When you list your addresses for the past few years you're required to give the name and address of somone who knew you while you were there and then you have to give three general character references. I don't have anything really from college since I was a commuter and didn't know anyone, and I have mostly lived alone, except for a two year period where I had a roommate but we are no longer on speaking terms...
So can I just list friends that knew me at the time, or does it have to be a roommate? Or property manager? Friends are fine, I lived by myself for a while so that's all I could use, the most important thing is to pick people who know you well and like you. I'm calling all my references that I"m putting down to make sure they're ok with it, cause from what I hear they have to fill out their own little packet of fun FAA paperwork too.
Character references... hmmm... who can I pay off...
I'm assuming they want previous supervisors/ coworkers, etc... or do they specifically mention they don't want more than one reference from any one line of work? They just don't want you to list the same people over and over again
I'll need to find the form... I'm doing the non-PEPC route, so I feel I will have to find a lot more of these things manually if want them done in any decent time-frame.
I don't know what else you need for going the non-PEPC route, but when I got my offer for ZTL thy sent me the sf-85 and form 8500 which is your medical, the only difference between enroute and terminal is that enroute fills out sf-86 and terminal fills out sf-85...Going non-PEPC like my dad did back in the day they'll send you a packet of paperwork, to do your medical, psych eval., FBI background check, etc. Anyone, please correct me if I"m wrong.Thanks for both replies- you replied quickly so quickly I had already deleted my previous post!
I had deleted my post because I found the form online and got it figured out.
Many thanks... Might as well get this filled out so it's ready to go...
Does anyone know what the other forms are?
