    Columbus T-38 down

    N-1 left in the fleet. Not looking at this mishap itself but general obsolescence problems.

    Columbus T-38 down

    Glad to hear they got out safely. Just another data point for actually procuring a T-X.

    Track Selects and Assignment Nights

    You sure about that?

    Moody and the A-29

    It's the 81st Fighter Squadron. It's an 11F billet and you need to have been an A-10/F-16/F-15E 4FL and an IP in some kind of jet. They drop the requirements on the fighter porch.

    AFPC functionals and leadership

    There is a white jet functional at AFPC. PM me your .mil and I'll give you the person's name. MWS functionals get the assignments though.

    VA Loans

    +1 for Trident Home Loans. Jennifer was great and very aggressive with the builder/seller to get everything sorted out and closed on a fast timeline.
  7. RUMINT/more than: The bonus/flight pay is going away and to be replaced with professional pay FY20 ala doctors. VCSAF briefed it to UPT IPs at RND last Friday and the proposal was "approved" by SECAF the week prior, now it needs congressional approval. The pay never deceases with TAFSC unlike flight pay. You keep it as long as youre a core 11x no matter what the billet. It's tied to industry compensation and the algorithm is ran yearly. So if the economy tanks, the pay tanks. The example (separate from VCSAF) given was a major at the end of his UPT ADSC would be making around $6K PER Month additional right now.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    Duck congrats on your soon to be major select status. At least you won't need a 2x passed over waiver for the ARC.

    AFRES unsponsored slots

    FWIW every T-6 reserve flight at UPT has a Unsponsored LNO.

    Upcoming Boards

    And further down the hallway we tried to do that with the other HIANG guy slated for T-1s who was #1 in T-6s right after y'all did. The ANGB said pound sand we already did it once. As for the T-38 "FAIP"ing in the reserves, it has happened exactly once. Laughlin did that with a non-rated major and they are always hurting for AGRs. http://www.919sow.afrc.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/1160980/reserve-student-pilot-chosen-for-instructor-duties/

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    What did I just watch? Is this a new fetish thing for O's and E's getting it on?

    Wouldn't be surprised. Especially with the involuntary mobilizations dropping to UPT TRs.
