    Every airshow I’ve ever done we sold damn near anything we brought with us and had to watch to make sure no one tried to walk off with “souvenirs” from the airplane. One dude literally tried to take one of the fire extinguishers and thought we wouldn’t notice. Zaps and T-shirts did well. So did fleeces and sweatshirts. Patches are always popular but you can get in iffy territory if they aren’t bought by the booster club. Coozies are also usually popular.

    Just saw the Mypers announcement this morning... Air Force is rolling out two UFT boards for active duty officers this year and launching a new prep program for bubbas who are qualified with less than 5 flight hours. Good news all around for people applying this year.

    Can always cross-train to supreme allied AOC commander... or whatever that new AFSC is.

    Thanks. Good points. I don’t know the specific individuals’ records, but just wanted to provide some data that school in-res may not mean promotion; albeit through a different track than ACSC.

    So I've talked to a lot of people in my peer group about this. I would say the majority of us don't "want" to go to school. However, we do want the option to go to school. There is a pretty distinctive difference there.

    when Does the work shift to someone else? I’ve always written my own PRFs and now looks like I probably have to write 2 of my own?! When I was a CGO, I always wrote my own OPRs now that i’m not, I still write my own OPRs, but I also wrote everyone else’s too.... i’m sure Many of you are the same

    Sounds about right for the ole' USAF. "Please do all this extra work so my job is easier."

    Not really. You have a 99% chance with a DP. You have about a 15% chance with a P.

    The movie has been out for a while now, but First Man is so underrated in my opinion. Not a typical sexy Hollywood movie, but it features a lot of quality actors, great acting, and many many memorable scenes. The thing that resonated with me the most is the dangers and the pains associated with the flight test community. I still remember the roads at Edwards named after the test pilots. Brought back memories of sitting through the TRBs and SRBs, and the pre-briefs before stepping... Can't stop watching this sequence over and over again.

    And sometimes those dudes hit the real Air Force and perform like rock stars, I’ve seen it, a lot.

    Keep positive, keep sober, and keep notes. And remember, there's an all-you-can-eat international buffet of strange and wonderful "adventures" out there awaiting you, and the company pays for the hotel room. Patience.

    Spin it to let her keep some equity in return to help fund the refinance. Do not stay financially tied to that chick at any cost. Get the f-ck away from anything that ties her spending to something that affects you or gives her leverage. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Looks like the revolt (and numerous retirement papers and 1288) has raised some eyebrows. Word is that Reserve KC135’s will continue with 60 day deployments (for now). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If only there could be access to cheap to rent aircraft available for military members who want to learn to fly, and maybe even their dependents. Maybe some sort of club of flying? Probably just crazy talk. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Wow, it's almost like an ex-Boeing exec in a new position in the DoD fast tracked delivery before all the tees were dotted and eyes crossed....and tools accounted for....

    No skeletons, but no special duties either. He was the chief of OGV and one of like 4 line dudes qualified in the glass cockpit upgrade at the time. My community is especially bad for it, because we are told we are too undermanned and too critical to do any kind of career broadening... Then we are punished for doing nothing but flying the line. Functional won't release me to go anywhere, but big Air Force is upset I've never been anywhere but in the cockpit. I'm having some real epiphanies about Catch-22.

    Sadly, push lines matter and not everyone knows that, including squadron CCs. job school and staff pushes are the way to show who’s a HPO and who’s in the bottom. but if your eater doesn’t know what they are doing, then your push lines could send the wrong, negative message. A good group or wing staff will catch these things. Sadly, most just pass it along. job push: should show the next job you are being pushed for. Or it could say, on track for Sq/CC. School push should always be there. IDE, in res IDE, SDE, SASS, etc.... leaving it out sends a direct message. staff push: there’s a hierarchy for sure. Malcom, Haf, JT staff.... leaving staff off sends a direct message. So does a MAJCOM push for that matter

    So I guess the take-away here is that if you got a couple mediocre OPRs as a captain, don't bother growing or improving because it won't matter anyway.
