    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    So, AMC standard?

    We’re doomed

    Unbelievable. What's the point of going to roll call if you spend it in a safe space?

    We’re doomed

    Sarcasm I hope.

    That is because AMC doesn't value dudes who are good leaders that are excellent, mission focused pilots. Being the #1 IP in an AMC wing will get you a cheap looking trophy. Being the #1 FGO in an AMC wing gets you a fancy medal at the awards ceremony with a pretty good shot at "the path."

    There are definitely two sides to the story. I don't have any expanding data at all on what is going on, but wanted to post an update. This will be an interesting case for sure.

    Update on the firing of the 375 AMW/CC. Fired Air Force wing commander charged with sexual assault, cruelty.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    I can see it making out of the Wing. It is the staff/managers between WG/CCs and the CSAF that will shut it down.

    Aviation Continuation Pay (ACP - The Bonus)

    That's because people still embrace the up or out mentality. And IMHO, the fly only track will not solve anything until that mentality changes.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    As a young CGO my Sq/CC told me to do SOS in correspondence in order to compete for a In-Res slots because "The shoe clerks have this game figured out." BTW, the CGOC President had a seat in the wing staff meeting at the time. After he said that it all started to make sense, just look at the promotion rates of flyers vs. non-flyers recently. Don't get me wrong, I am not defending the system. But we, as pilots, have lost control of the AIR FORCE.

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

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

    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.

    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.
