  1. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Serious question. What rank are his execs and are they flyers?
  2. Stratux?

    Cannot speak to Stratux but highly recommend Stratus. My unit bought them the minute they were approved and it is a huge SA tool paired with ForeFlight on the EFBs. We use the Stratux on every sortie unless our profile won't allow it. It works in the low-level environment up to FL410+. Can't believe the AF hasn't embraced this more.
  3. Taxes, the Deficit/Debt, and the Fiscal Cliff

    I think the leadership had faith a CR would get passed because it seems to be standard ops now. IIRC, the DoD had guidance in-place prior to the 2013 shut down so everyone was prepared when congress failed to act.
  4. Ordering Patches (name, morale, fun meter)

    I'd say Mardon pre-2011 made quality patches. I've had both leather backed and non-leather backed patches since then that were not quality products. My current leather backed nametag's edge threading started to unravel after the first few months of wearing them.
  5. Taxes, the Deficit/Debt, and the Fiscal Cliff

    That is a great question. AFAIK, SOS and FTU guys are good. Unknown about contract maintainers. Some were furloughed in 2013. The DoD did not seem prepared for this shut down based on the vague guidance they've released.
  6. Taxes, the Deficit/Debt, and the Fiscal Cliff

    It depends on what the TDY is. There is amplifying information released by the DoD outlining what TDYs will proceed or be cancelled. Bottomline, if it is mission essential expect to press. If it isn't, the TDY will probably be cancelled. I know a couple of people being recalled from TDY IAW the DoD guidance detailing TDY actions in the shut down.
  7. Ordering Patches (name, morale, fun meter)

    You give Mardon too much credit.
  8. Chances of Being Deployed Nat'l Guard

    Command Relationships. Think OPCON, TACON etc. Rumor is Mother AMC is looking to drastically change the way heavy units are tasked, to include the ANG and AFRC.
  9. T-38 Down @ DLF

  10. IRC (Instrument Refresher Course) Info

    The local SARM shop just kicked out the due dates based on the reg change.
  11. IRC (Instrument Refresher Course) Info

    I stand corrected.
  12. IRC (Instrument Refresher Course) Info

    IIRC July of 2017 was when the new AFI was published directing the 17 months for IRC.
  13. 1801 Handling Question

    There is plenty of airspace in central Washington all the way to the eastern side of Montana. AMC should have flown the majority of the iron from another location other than TCM, such as Moses Lake. Moses Lake would have loved the extra business and it would keep everyone out of Seattle's busy airspace. The MPC should only spend .69% of their time on flight plans.
  14. KC-46A Info

    You can thank the Air Force for that one.
  15. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Hah, I am sure DFAS could handle that.
