  2. TLDR: Talk to an attorney, follow state law where you are stationed, get a CCW with good reciprocity, and don't bring guns on base unless you've done your homework (ask SFS/S2 for the base AFI supplement). 1) SOURCES OF ADVICE. Nobody can give you good DEFINITIVE advice on this topic other than an attorney licensed in the appropriate state. Don't ask cops, your buddy, security forces, or the internets. Especially if you're going to a blue state with lots of gun control, there is a lot of risk. A JAG is the next best, but if they're not licensed in the state or familiar with this are

  3. For those of us with a safety shop that doesn't believe in using the safety process to prevent mishap and won't let you read mishap reports: https://www.militarytimes.com/2018/12/05/investigation-blames-air-force-and-navy-for-systemic-failures-in-fatal-marine-corps-c-130-crash-that-killed-16/ The horrific KC-130T plane crash that killed 15 Marines and a sailor last summer was caused by a deteriorating propeller blade that was corroded when it entered an Air Force maintenance depot in 2011, but workers there failed to fix it and sent it back to the fleet unrepaired.

  4. Have you seen how those dudes land that thing? Talk about doesn't fly like anything else! What the hell kind of engineer thought it'd be a good idea to flare with power?!

  6. Yup. But for some reason there is this fear of losing wings when the real concern is will you be grounded or not. I think you and I are in agreement. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  7. I was writing PRFs and seen a guy with well over 1K combat hours, yet he had one strat going up for major. Good dude, just has a different view. Like people should be allowed to play cards at work kind of guy.

  8. I’ve been on the FEB for someone. It is heartbreaking to be the judge of an aviator at their FEB when they care and have been trying but just don’t have the aptitude. I can tell you the four of us (3 voting, 1 non-voting) took the job seriously and it weighed heavy on the 3 voting members. But like the others have said, the true purpose of the FEB is to evaluate your ability to continue in aviation service to the USAF. And, yes, we do wind up with people who have been ACs in one community fail out of training in another. It sucks for everyone involved. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Netw

  9. Just a data point for guys that may be looking to go U-28’s after departure from an FTU (usually fighter guys). If you were having problems multi-tasking/decision making/dealing with complex situations, don’t go to the U-28. It’s a very complicated mission and requires you to be able to think on your feet. Not saying other aircraft don’t require that, but the U-28 is pretty high up there on that scale.

  16. I know I'm late to the party but the rental market in Abilene is almost non-existent, with a steady for of FTU students parading through. Quail Hollow captures a decent chunk as "unofficial" base housing, but there's money to be made renting a house at O-1/O-2 BAH rates.

  17. If civilians or contractors are slow rolling work because of you. Then you are probably the problem and you need to check your leadership style. Some dudes like to bark at civilians. You can't just bark at contractors or a GS like they are in the military. See how that works out for you after being passed over twice and having to work a civilian job where there is no such thing as rank.
