    And, as long as you aren’t a douchebag, you’ll do much better in the b-course after faip-ing.
  2. The new airline thread

    Delta is > $86 and going up 3 or 4% in Jan
  3. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    We had a lox bottle blow the front end off a 38 at Tyndall .... look for the report, lots of good pictures. (Not common....lox is good)

  6. Meh. Once you get used to seeing it for a while it’s a lot easier to be sneaky when you need to
  7. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    Sort of. Some folks come back from pit with a qual rating, some with an IP rating, some with an SUPT IP rating. It’s all about what the unit wants to pay for. Different syllabi for different products.
  8. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    T-38s for u2/b2 are very limited in what they can do .... your argument may not be apples to apples

    “I have a globe and a crayon, where would you like me to go?”
  10. Airline hiring prep, gouge, advice

    Start early! It can and probably should take about 6 months to get your app up to the 99% solution...independent of the time it takes to study, prep, etc. dont beleive me? -what’s the mailing address where you went to AFEO (Life support Officer) school? -what were the exact date you were at SoS? B-course? Etc -what was the phone number to the ops desk at a squadron that’s now at Holloman? Closed? -what’s the disposition of that speeding ticket you got around 2008? What was the date? Where? If you just mail in a payment have you been found guilty? Is that different in Virginia vs Nevada? -who was your supervisor at your college job? -do you have sealed high school and college transcripts? -what’s on your faa record? all of the information is out there...it just takes time and leg work to get. The 99% application takes OCD level attention to detail
  11. Airline hiring prep, gouge, advice

    I’ll pile on that the ECIC phone top off is not where they give you “canned answers.” (They really never do that). Its basically last minute practice. They ask you interview style questions and you get to practice applying your 6-9 well thought out stories that you intend to apply or bend to fit. Its a one on one chance to calm any jitters, practice speaking out loud, and build your confidence. The phone top offs are worth your time.

    Retired in June. Working for Delta. Also got hired by Southwest and United (so I’ve seen their process). Invited to interview with Fedex and American (tired of interviewing at that point). (Bragging) its a sellers market out there. Happy to help

  14. Texas Church Shooting

    I’m sure there will be swift accountability in the AF legal world ....just like when finance fucks up.
  15. Texas Church Shooting

    I have found a good, proper gun belt made a huge difference. And when I carry, it’s a stainless 1911.
  16. Thunderbird F-16 flips at KDAY

    Meh. I’ve been out of said community for a bit .... but no, not really. Regular alternate rules. But we didn’t carry extra gas just for rain.
  17. Thunderbird F-16 flips at KDAY

    I’ve had the same jet, same day, same rain .... pool on one approach, not on another. It’s a crap shoot.
  18. SGT Bowe Bergdahl Freed

    Zero benefits. So there’s that. That’s something I guess.
  19. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Don’t take it. Treat any extra pt test as a threat to your career, regardless of what shape you’re in What are are they gonna do, not PCS you? Time is on your side.
