If anyone has a minute to help me out with the flashcards I'd greatly appreciate it!
Is it true that you have to orient 'A' with your direction of travel (the yellow arrow) and then answer? The reason I ask is because when I google images "TBAS directional orientation" it shows a tracker map and then an aircraft view with 4 grayed out parking lots. The parking lots are not labeled A-D on the picture so I am confused.
Additionally why does the compass rose to the left of the terrain picture not have a dial on it? Is it irrelevant, unneeded information?
The only "hope" remaining is that enough people walk when this 120 nonsense formally drops to wake up institutionalized zombies into listening to people at the reserve squadron level... and for once come to terms with the FACT that in this environment... YOU WILL NOT RETAIN PILOTS (and for that matter, aircrew in general) BY TAKING RIGID APPROACHES IN YOUR DEPLOYMENT POLICIES. People clearly have options and WILL execute them faster than AFRC can reverse their poor management choices. I'd tell anyone with a star on a shoulder that you'd better start listening and offering some flex to the membership because between FAMILY/CIVJOB/AF.... AF, AFRC, ANG is gonna loose that every time for foreseeable future. Then again that assumes that anyone with a star on their shoulder cares... a strong assumption at this point.
