    Track Selects and Assignment Nights

    CAF heavy planes drop to T-38s. Some people are unlucky, some didn't do well enough.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Or you cheat on your wife to marry an millionaire heiress.

    BLUE: Episode 25 Pilot Pipeline

    No because UPT you actually fly manned aircraft and are a real manned pilot.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Other than the lack of ELPs I think the new T-6 syllabus is better for T-38 bound SPs.

    And Yet Another Deadline Missed

    Better have a signed contract with some enforcement mechanism for that!

    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    He may be an ART and have been in civilian status the majority of the time.
  7. I would say mandatory enrollment is because there are service members that are more concerned about their career and specific assignments then enduring quality care for their dependents.

    AF Reserve Age Limit

    Did your unit convert from legacy to J's?

    ADSC Waiver to Retire

    Because it's a retention tool and quid pro quo not a free benefit.

    What's your favorite mission?

    I enjoy teaching students, either in the T-6 or T-38, both have their pros/cons.

    That's not what I said. UPT does not produce fighter wingmen, IFF/FTU do. Formation admin and visual recognition for LoS, AA, etc... isn't rocket surgery. UPT isn't teaching tactics it's teaching admin. UPs that can't fly form admin shouldn't have graduated, at least in theory. Decreased washout rates are a side effect of pushing more pilots through the pipeline.

    Great point! I agree, that's why we have IFF and FTUs.

    No idea, it's a recent phenomenon. There's also the idea if b-course opens up a senior FAIP can just drop that airframe then and jump into the opening. SPS leadership just looking to take care of their FAIPs, no harm in that.

    That there won't be be a huge quality delta in t-38 grads that were taught with either a MAF or CAF instructor. Edit: in case it wasn't clear, I was saying IFF always complains about the product anyways.
