    RFI on aircraft systems

    T-38s have redundant hydraulics for flight controls. F-16s have many redundant systems...but only one source of thrusties MD-88s fly through sheer force of will and deeply instilled Douglas aircraft Corp anger.

    Why would you be up at 0430 ? That’s gotta be either a great binge or terrible idea or both.

    ?s on logging flight time

    Or, if you’re a youngun and have the time and motivation .... keep a civilian style logbook where you note the time that your aircraft starts and stops moving under its own power. I think its it’s a little harder to defend in an interview...but it’s certainly valid.

    Seven Day Option

    They can’t force you to accept a longer Adsc. But it they can waive the Adsc and do what the originally wanted anyway

    Seven Day Option

    The 7-day clock starts from assignment NOTIFICATION. not orders, or rips. Technically they don’t even have to tell you to notify you. The Adsc stuff would be from PCS date of report (if I recall Correctly). If a 3- or 7- day opt is even a remote possibility you need to get smart on the separations and assignments AFIs now.

    How Long For New Studs To Be Disillusioned?

    Have a healthy cynicism and keep your eyes open .... but don’t have a chip on your shoulder until you’ve earned it. You may be the unicorn ... the af may do right by you. It might be awesome with great leadership and bountiful opportunities to pursue a life of religious fulfillment all along the way. I’d hate to miss out on it because of the ramblings of bitter assholes on the Internet. (It probably won’t ever happen ... but it could. You could be the one!) (Maybe.) (But probably not.)

    The new airline thread

    With the Recent advent and popularity of super high deductible catastrophic insurance plans .... lots and lots of places are real happy to take tricare. Especially independent docs and specialists. They know they’ll get paid. We haven’t had any issues using tricare standard everywhere

    Take a cab the 90 miles to Pensacola. Round trip. Make it more expensive and kill off the good idea fairy.

    GI Bill education benefits transfer

    It’s a tremendous benefit .... and worth a 4 year Adsc if you have kids.

    ?s on logging flight time

    I went the logten route. Lives on the cloud, easy to initially populate via an excel file, easy to update via phone as you fly, spits out all the info needed for all the applications, and prints a real nice paper logbook to take to an interview. As an added bonus, the company was really responsive to inputs and requests for specific formats for logbook printout, etc. it’s Mac based, and i don’t have a Mac ... so they went the extra mile to bridge the gap for me. (I do have an iPhone ....)
  23. There are rules and procedures. They can’t just kick you out tomorrow. You want the assignments afi and the separations afi. Use caution, much of those afi’s were written by lawyers and not for your benefit.

    T-38 Down @ DLF

    None. As mentioned, the only direct connection you have is to the throttle. If you have no shit zero hydraulic pressure on both sides, you are simply along for the ride and can only control how fast you get to the crash site. Of note, there is little to no pitching moment with throttle changes from idle to full ab. Systems knowledge will set you free
