    AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    Nailed it! Hitters ONLY apply. I want the guys who want it for the mission not because it sounds cool or the location is great. I'd prefer there be no focus other than building a sustainable cadre for the future of the program. The last thing you want to happen with this program is it gets turned into some kind of goddamn flying club and screws the pooch for being a sustainable program well into the future. In a perfect world you'd put it at an austere location (outfield of Eglin...WAY out) and build a bunch of steely eyed killers to carry the reputation well into the future. Who knows... Cooter

    AFPAK Hands- Opportunity Beckons

    Only just recently come in contact with some of these individuals...NOT impressed. I feel like they are individuals who either could not hack it in their communities or had the personality of a door stop. I'm judging from a rather small sample size I know but JeeeezUS. Cooter
  5. 2! I was planning on staying beyond 20 anyways so it was an easy kill for me. Little extra jangle in the pocket never hurts. Cooter

    Retirement / Separation Considerations

    Whoa..that is a bit bizarre. Last I heard for -365s (O-5) they were starting with guys with dates of '03 (which I don't know how that's possible) so it sounds like yours at the local level. If it's a flying AA gig there are worse jobs from what I here. I'm headed out at end of the month so I'll know more after that I guess! Good luck. Cooter

    Retirement / Separation Considerations

    If you’ve done enough deployments how are you getting tagged? different strokes for different folks, I sought mine out. Granted, not a pilot so my situation is different? Cooter
  8. Anyone know if you take your 50% while deployed, is it tax free?

    PREACH...I’m hoping a year or so from now I’m one of those Lt Col’s. I’ll sign whatever they want and stay until they throw me out kicking and screaming! Cooter

  12. Totally agree, There are multiple 11X/12X in critically manned career fields at my current job. Very little what we are doing involves air at all and in most cases NOTHING to do with it. Not one of us here can come with a plausible reason for us to be here given the current aviator retention issue. YOu have a higher probability of getting forgotten about in critical windows than you do anything else. Cooter

    Afghan Caravan (208) 365

    Yeah called a while back and the earliest I heard was Feb19 which would keep me beyond my normal staff “get out of jail free card.” I’m also investigating another flying option as well which could also be a quick turn. I may give the -365 guy another ring regardless. Cooter

    Afghan Caravan (208) 365

    You hear any mention of 12S? I’m HIGHLY interested but heard the call would be fall at earliest. Cooter

    Afghan Caravan (208) 365

    Hahaha sorry bad joke, I was asking for me. Trying to seek out a flying -365 as I am looking for a change of pace from my intellectually stimulating (sarcasm) Joint job. Cooter
