  1. Leadership at the 'Deid

    Turning left, finding weather .... you know, tanker stuff .... only better.
  2. Pilot watches

    Check out the citizen gps watches. Not quite tritium, but the hands glow long time.
  3. Latest Movies

    It was quite good. See it on the biggest screen you can find!
  4. When big Air Force wants more pilots, the bar generally goes down
  5. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    Hitting “publish” on a well crafted and reviewed app about 6 months prior to your availability is about as late as you want to go. Taking 6 months to go from zero to ready to publish is about right. You can certainly get it done quicker, but it will be a thrash. Don’t forget to budget time for interview prep, testing prep (which can be significant for delta and Fedex), suit procurement, etc. i started about 18 months out (7-day opt) and it was a comfortable pace.
  6. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    It’s a valid backup plan that furthers your objectives if you don’t get the call in time for your primary plan. But it prolly doesnt need to be your primary plan
  7. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    The single-seat to crewed airplane stuff isn’t cosmic at all, although it’s a stereotype for a reason.... dont be an asshole and you’ll do fine. And when you get to the Ep part where they give you the plane and the radios it’s easy. Although you will have to get your own atis in that situation.

    I enjoyed the shit out of it. I think one one of the things that should holding you back from being blown away is Gosling’s slightly off putting “affect” for lack of a better term. I think if you watch it again that will make a little more sense and it will click in. Recommend. Three thumbs up (bqzip’s mom)
  9. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    A-sometimes right and legal diverge I’ll chose right every time B-I’ll be long dead before all those wickets are run.
  10. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    If you’re current and qualified you should have no problem getting to the majors. A spin through the regionals is usually for guys that haven’t flown in 3-5 years. I got hired or called by all the major airlines with less than 3k single seat hours and an atp. But I stayed for 20. Folks are certainly getting hired with less.
  11. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    A-I lost all of my firearms in a tragic boating incident in the Gulf of Mexico. B-if your sworn to support and defend the constitution, you should have a really hard time with a blanket ban and/ or confiscation .... unless there are changes to the constitution.
  12. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    It was subtle...but I certainly appreciated it.
  13. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    No, In total. Like bobbies with batons anti-gun
  14. Before y’all get too excited, remember they stood up that community with E-6b bubbas. They served a valuable purpose, but weren’t exactly the sharpest knives and didn’t run push it up fighter squadrons (socially).
  15. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Police are generally a cross section of society. Some are gun nuts, some aren’t. Some are downright anti-gun.
  16. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    And I think duty to retreat is limited to just a few far left states. Its the exception, not the rule. There are several states that allow use of force to protect PROPERTY not just life. (I.e. I can just shoot you for trying to steal my car out of my driveway)
  17. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    I disagree. On the long look of human history, violence, war, and untimely death is WAY DOWN. We’re living in a golden age of peace and prosperity.
  18. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    But my, we’ve certainly strayed far from that initial construct and philosophical intent, haven’t we.
  19. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Which means no lives matter.
  20. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    I’ll accept that compromise.
  21. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    You can also shine and be the best of what’s left. It’s a win either way.
  22. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    And back in the founding father’s days, you could buy or make weapons on par with, or superior to, the military and government weapons of the day. I want a hellfire missile.
  23. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    You have to be just good enough to be useful, but not so good that you get called up for school/staff/etc. it’s a fine line.
