  1. I am just amazed someone used that phrase correctly.
  2. I had a friend who was twice passed over to O-5 with no continuation offered. He had a bonus (5 years) that took him to 21 years. He was forced to retire and they would not let him stay past 20. This was a few years ago but you should be able to get the 6 month waiver. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. It has to be an FAA-certified sim...not just the AF “level D”.
  4. After the end of the fiscal year. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. How’s that workin’ out for ya?
  6. Renaming changes nothing. Both are mandatory compliance. What does change is the elimination of rules from [some] of those pubs. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. There is nothing new under the sun... Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. I’m ok being a total shitbag. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  9. KC is a ing badass. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. You get offered continuation once. Signing the documents sets a separation date. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. Now we know how Fingers fixed the pilot shortage! Top Gun 2 = influx of wannabes...
  12. I hear ya on that. Sounds very familiar...
  13. Obviously his tax bracket was too high! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. Correct. But there are commanders out there that [wrongly] think they have to put your vector in the push line.
  15. The sad thing is I have seen many commanders who don’t know this or don’t give a . I saw a “#2/xx FGOs” get a MAJCOM push because that was their vector (of which 85% get a MAJCOM vector).
  16. You know there are not many 365s left, right? They’ve been converted back to 6-monthers for the most part.
  17. I thought we all had to recertify our marriages a few years ago...
  18. I had two commanders who truly didn’t know that “1/xx officers” was a shit strat. I had one who didn’t know that “2/xx FGOs” as a new O-4 did not go with “MAJCOM next” on the push line. The system is completely and utterly ed. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  19. Pawnman: the black box of how promotion boards work sucks. It also sucks that even a FOIA of the board instructions won’t help much. Just remember...Big Blue May not value you but there are people in your community who do. Klepto: I doubt competitive categories will help. I think there is a study in the Navy showing that the “aviator” category promotes at a lower rate than the others. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  20. Well we all (AMC) got a new FCIF on aircrew discipline and adherence to standards that mentions both low levels and stabilized approach criteria. So...move along. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  21. That is the Breitling symbol found on all their watches. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  22. It should have been a go around. That is a 197’ wide runway. Both trucks were over the grass and the left wingtip was nearly over the runway edge line. That means the aircraft was around 85’ right of center. In my airplane, more than 25’ off centerline is a U. The only way to get to that runway is a circle or visual circuit due to the close proximity of CDG. It was probably a poorly flown circle/visual pattern...but that doesn’t excuse the violation of everything AMC has been trying to teach for the last several years about landings/go arounds.

  23. There is not. They also removed the caveats for a 364 with less than 1 year left. Waiver for everything.
  24. Tell us more, champ! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
