  1. Did they change the lengths of the courses recently? When I did it in 2013 the ASPM (aviation safety program manager) course was a week and AMIC (Aviation mishap investigator course) was 3 weeks.
  2. When I was going through Kirtland, there was a guy who was at the MC-130H FTU who had already gone through Little Rock and had a clean C-130H form 8 who washed out of the MC-H course and was separated, not allowed to go back to slick herks... thought that was the dumbest thing ever.
  3. For initial physicals there is also a minimum uncorrected requirement (when I joined it was 20/100 or 20/70, can’t remember exactly) that once you have your wings can deteriorate further without disqualifying you.
  4. That can’t happen if they parachute is worn correctly with the leg straps on. If the leg straps aren’t on then it won’t matter since the poor bastard will just fall out of the parachute harness and separate from the parachute.
  5. This, we should have stuck to blue thread like the BDU and ABU. Looks different, has some heritage, etc... but leave it on an OCP background.
  6. I am a CSO so I wouldn’t be eligible for REACT anyway. So no, I was not put in the study. As for monitoring, the waiver does not require monitoring as long as I still pass the normal vision tests. The optometrist wants to re-map every year but that is not required for the waiver.
  7. Brings up an interesting question.. if Aircraft I fires the missile, and aircraft B guides it, who gets the kill/green star?
  8. Quick follow up for anyone who searches this. My waiver was approved in less than a month. The waiver is indefinite so no renewals required.
  9. We had local guidance and Moody and DM, but that was all rescinded when the new AF guidance came out and we just follow said guidance.
  10. Situation: I am an HC-130J CSO who has been flying for 8 years. Recently I went to get corneal topography done as part of the workup for LASIK/PRK. During this they found abnormal corneal topography in my left eye. The optometrist said it shouldn’t affect my vision but it is DQ for surgery, no big deal, but the flight doc called me the next day saying I am now DNIF pending a waiver. Vision details: my current RX is Left (S -1.50, C -1.00, A 170) right (S -1.25, C -1.25, A 013) I see 20/15 corrected in both eyes, perfect depth perception and color vision. I show no symptoms of any other eye issues. Question: how good are my odds at a waiver here? The flight doc sent the paperwork up and said the process is usually 1-2 months. I really want to keep flying I even signed a bonus, but this has me worried.
  11. I think we should go blue as well, if we have to be different lets do it with heritage, we had blue thread on all the previous utility uniforms.
  12. The footwear portion of 36-2903 for the bag says any boot in [insert range of paragraphs here]. The new memo adds the brown boots to one of those paragraphs. I have been wearing my brown boots with my bag for about a month now.
  13. Not sure where you got pin on from my post, I expressly stated sew on or velcro...
