  1. Past hour
  2. Promotion and PRF Information

    Checks. It won't happen though.
  3. Promotion and PRF Information

    Goldfein should fire this guy on the spot for insubordination. Only that type of drastic action will move the needle.
  4. But that would mean the CC in question is the same guy who was the least respected Sq/CC I've ever heard of... wait, yeah, that checks.
  5. Today
  6. iPhone app inop

    Still same error on both free and paid app on android phone and tablet. Did the tinkerers give an ETIC?
  7. Promotion and PRF Information

    That must be the new wing formerly known as the 317AG. (Dyess)
  8. Promotion and PRF Information

    AD airlift wing in TX? I've been around the block a few times and I can't figure that one out. SA is reserve.
  9. Promotion and PRF Information

    To be or to do...
  10. Promotion and PRF Information

    Well, so much for “re-vitalizing the squadrons.” An unidentified active duty Airlift Wing in Texas’s Wing Commander is still making 09 guys submit PRFs. My exec bros are in on the weekend to edit the PRFs before his deadline... He also has a new policy of limiting flying bullets on OPR to two per OPR, even for LTs. What in the actual F@&$? I have to admit I have tried to be optimistic about these new changes, but for those of you who are beyond the point of reproach by the Air Force (Duck), you aren’t wrong. There are deep rooted cultural issues in the Air Force and the one that upsets me the most is the lack of focus on getting metal in the sky and obsession with OPRs, records and careerism.
  11. Security clearance questions

    So you’ve started taking bribes before getting the job...
  12. Doing Well in UPT

    I'd say the only thing worth studying beforehand is the boldface/ops limits. Maybe if you have some extra time and are really bored, the Air Force (UPT) traffic pattern and priorities (though it helps to have someone explain it). Outside of that, take care of yourself and your family beforehand, since once you start it'll be busy. You'll have classes on everything you need to learn, as well as your class to study with. Same advice I gave my casual LTs when I was a T-6 IP not too long ago. Edit to add: All learning the boldface beforehand does is free up time so you can learn/study other things when you start instead of worrying about stupid capitalization and punctuation.
  13. Doing Well in UPT

    You will end up completely finishing systems in about 2 weeks during Phase I. It goes fast. Like really fast. You won’t be expected to know boldface/ops limits until you hit Phase II (T-6 flightline) around a month into UPT. You can try to find the most up to date T-6 Boldface/Ops Limits before you get down there, but outside of that, there’s really no amount of studying that’s gonna help or get you ahead. Definitely know them cold, verbatim, commas and all by Phase II/Day 1 and make sure the rest of your class does too. It will get you out of blues and into flight suits. Once you get your pubs, you can start making your way through the contact portion of the 11-248 and keep your nose in the -1. I would also focus on the 11-2T-6 v3, especially Laughlin’s Sup to the v3. Be prepared to feel overwhelmed, but just keep taking bites out of the elephant. Focused studying is way better than just sitting down and trying to read the entirety of the mountain of pubs. Let me know if you have any questions! Best of luck!
  14. I think he was responding to my post. I’m not concerned about the actual FICO score either, but rather the contents of the credit report. I know excessive amounts of debt are something they look at as an indicator of ability to be bribed. So if they deem my level of debt (as of April) as being concerning, I’m curious if they’d be willing to obtain a more recent credit report since it will show the significant progress I’ve made on paying off debt.
  15. I'm not worried about that, just curious if I need to unfreeze my credit.
  16. Doing Well in UPT

    Dude, just be a good dude, work hard and trim. Help out your bros and use your time in the flight room efficiently. PM me if you want some info on DLF.
  17. Security clearance questions

    They don’t give a shit about your credit score. They care if you are a bribery risk.
  18. Promotion and PRF Information

    So... anybody have intel on if/when Congress might approve the O-4 promotion list for the 2008 YG? The first batch is set to pin on "1 Oct or Senate confirmation, whichever is later."
  19. Here's a piggyback question related to the credit check. I realize this is so specific that probably no one can answer, but maybe it's worth a shot. Since the investigation pipeline is so backed up right now and investigators may not review background check information for many months after the SF86 is submitted, is it plausible that another credit check could be conducted if something isn't to the investigators' liking and a significant period of time has passed since the initial one? I submitted my SF86 in April, and from what I hear, the investigation process can take a year or more. My main concern is my credit history. I had some delinquencies in the past but they've all been resolved for 4+ years now (all were paid in full and none went to outside collection agencies). However, my overall amount of credit card and personal loan debt is pretty damn high (having an unplanned child was the main culprit). Luckily I've procured a significantly higher paying job recently and I should be able to pay off a very big chunk of that debt before I get to OTS next April. I've heard that some people end up doing interviews with investigators and some don't, so I assume it depends on if there are any specific factors that concern them. If they end up interviewing me a few months down the road because of financial concerns, could I have any luck requesting that they pull another credit report so that I can show proof that I've made huge progress on my debt since the first credit check? Or is the system probably too bogged down for them to bother with the extra work?
  20. So what if you don't want to go to the airlines or get a PhD, want to be home every night, and don't want to work 16 hours a day? Fighter type with engineering degree/experience.
  21. Yesterday
  22. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    When TACC confuses themselves with PIC, what do you expect?
  23. What's wrong with the Air Force?
