  1. You should change your availability to the day you start terminal leave. You'll get some time after indoc to spend with the family. You (understandably) don't appreciate what 1 month of seniority means.
  2. Do you want a system enabled on your airplane that rolls your airplane wings level and pulls up when you fly your whole routine in super fingertip?
  3. Are the take rates here? https://starsraw.afpc.randolph.af.mil/avb/avb.html
  4. His family isn't "authorized" to be there? Does it say that on his wife's orders?
  5. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/ruchikatulshyan/2015/01/30/racially-diverse-companies-outperform-industry-norms-by-30/amp/ More generally, do you believe that America is the best country in the world? Do you think it's a coincidence that it's also the most ethnically diverse?
  6. Ah, a life of meaning and purpose, felt so strongly by C-130 pilots dropping off and picking up the same pallets of water around the AOR for 4 months in a row, or by a fighter pilot starting their 4th hour of orbiting supporting a JTAR that the army forgot existed 9 months ago, or by the major spending 365 days away from his family building powerpoint slides that people glance at for seconds at a time, or the captain right in the middle of the IPUG who spent a weekend finishing up OPRs on his guys that don't even end up going in front of a board. This whole thread is a testament to the meaning and purpose the Air Force provides.
  7. I thought your original argument was that Tricare is worth consideration because of coverage during catastrophic illnesses. Now I have no idea what you're arguing. If you lose your job and lose your insurance and have no money the bills will "break you"? I agree. Isn't that the same on Tricare?
  8. Why wouldn't this someone just sign up for different insurance if they knew their plan was expiring? Especially if they were sick?
  9. My out of pocket max for Blue Cross is like $4k ($8k for the family). We could each have a million dollars in medical bills and never pay more than that. When was this that you saw someone with insurance who was broken financially because of catastrophic illness?
  10. Do these guys get extended f-16 syllabi or do they operate under the same one as normal UPT grads?
  11. Wtf? I don't think that's what he means at all.
  12. Read a rumor that the 11F take rate is under 10% according to this website: https://starsraw.afpc.randolph.af.mil/avb/avb.html I don't have access so can't comment on the validity. The new fighter retention guy says it's not that bad and that it will be close to last year's rate.
  13. Ever. They have no way of tracking your FAA hour limits (like 30 in 7 or 100 in 30) for outside flying so their solution is to just prohibit it.
