  1. Let’s not forget how they killed that green beret in Africa too for not accepting the money out of the “informant fund” the SEALs have been skimming. https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.nytimes.com/2017/11/13/us/politics/navy-seals-green-beret-death-mali.amp.html

    Looks like asking the question on BaseOps was all I needed! Got final approval today. 6 days for my truth data.

    Duck, There is a in-service recruiter at Nellis for both ARC and ANG. Ours is in the MPF building.

    How long did it take for AFPC to get you the final approval once you had your 1288 sent back in for the last time? Was it just the 5-7 days?

    The only two weapons school graduates in the 06 year group in the helo community are/have palace chased.

    Yea man. Definitely not my intent. Far more good than bad and I’m friends with all the OG patches. I also agree with your comments on ACC.

    I can’t speak about how UPT was done in the 90s and prior. I do know that just because we used lead paint and asbestos in those decades doesn’t make it right. UPT-H and segregated UPT flights are two things that can remain in the past. Helo guys going to T-6s starts the building block to a lifetime of integration with the rest of the CAF.

    The problem is that the UPT-H program would not be equivalent to even the baseline Army program. Additionally, the HH community operates in a significantly more difficult operating environment then most slick hawk drivers deal with in the army. We have had W2s come over and struggle in the HH. We have also had them be extremely successful. Either way, the proposed UPT-H plan was not sufficient to prepare HH crews for CSAR.

    So your logic is that because a fully qualified/seasoned Army RW Pilot can cross over means that a brand new nugget off the street can make the same transition?

    It was a terrible idea to stop helo pilots from going to T-6s. The original plan would have been to do IFS, get a commercial instrument (no low level, etc.) with a contract helicopter company and then go to straight to Kirtland. It would have been an extremely expensive option that would have resulted in a significant loss of experience and capability.

    I did hear some good news regarding UPT-H being cancelled....so that is a big win for common sense.

    So since shit is starting to get real with my palace chase, I could really use some advice from those that have made this transition. What are some things you wish you would have done differently? Sell leave? TRICARE coverage? Moving out from base housing and not being charged extra? Thanks in advance!
  15. Him, him. We have had that unit out several times. It never gets easier.
