    Career Skills Program

    Are there a lot of options with flexible hours or are there limited options for someone that wants to find an "airline friendly" internship?

    KC-135 Tanker Q&A

    Numerous deployments and a schoolhouse assignment results in less than 2 degrees of separation from just about every tanker crewdog. It really is a small world. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    KC-135 Tanker Q&A

    Did you ask for them to turn the lights up? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    KC-135 Tanker Q&A

    TFI is either awesome or heinous, completely depends on leadership but if there is a TFI unit at a base you want to be later it’s a great three year interview. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. Image isn’t working for me but if it’s a military discount on unlimited data it’s definitely a thing. I got a random text and called Verizon because I thought it was a scam. Saving $10 a month now for unlimited (previously had 8 gbs/mo). Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Seattle airliner stolen and crashed

    That audio is chilling. If I hadn’t known the story and just heard the audio I would think this was some gag recording by bored pilots or controllers.
  7. Last out of MAF FB Page was they heard word from the SECAF to have your CC request a waiver from the OPR. Apparently when you request an AFI waiver the OPR has 30 days to respond otherwise your request is auto approved. While the MAF folks say they are still seeking a better resolution, this is apparently the way forward for now.
  8. You are referring to a note in the ADSC reg which was discretely removed and published with zero heads up to Sq/CCs and crewdogs, that’s why this all started.

    Fly-Only Track in AMC

    Did you also see you need Wg/CC approval to even apply?
  10. That’s an easy one, all those deployments will be filled by the guys that fell for the ATT and now have an 8 year commitment. Plenty of ADSC remaining.

    Fly-Only Track in AMC

    Yeah, the original proposed “limited” 180s and no 365 for anyone in the fly only track. Kinda silly for a tanker guy that deploys two months at a time anyways (hello loophole) but still a lot better. I suggested a 4 year PCS ADSC that way you could at least decide after you bargain your assignment but that was on said MAF page so big surprise it didn’t make it anywhere.

    Fly-Only Track in AMC

    The amount of people praising this thing on there is incredible when all I see is (in all reality) trading in another 8 years of your life for an extra year on station each assignment. All the other “positives” are patronizing as they clearly think by titling something “flying” (aka staff and 365s) we’ll be happy to take it! I can’t believe they won’t at least take 365s off the table to give a little extra carrot. This is even worse than the terrible original idea Everheart proposed a few months ago.
  13. Or non tanker dudes in charge or tanker guys, or non 17 dudes in charge of 17 guys. There’s a debate on the MAF Assignments and Vectoring FB Page right now over this. Personally I think getting to switch airframes is cool and all but should not be a delineator for command. Why does someone need experience on “the other side” to make them a better CC?

    IRR opportunities....points

    I’m 2.5 years out from my commitment ending and I’m really interested in one of these jobs. How much of a lead turn can I really take to make the changeover easier?

    The new airline thread

    Guess I’m a glutton for punishment. Really more out of curiosity than anything.
