  1. The new airline thread

    UPT and IFF are great reserve jobs for airline guys too IMO.
  2. I don't get your point of view. Either you get hired at a major in a year, which is a win, or you get a signing bonus which makes your pay roughly equivalent to an Air Force captain. Both are pretty good results.
  3. True, but it's kind of a moot point if they give up the bonus because they're getting hired at a major.
  4. Regionals will pay for your ATP, and pay is pretty close to 75% with their signing bonuses. Also, you aren't locked in and can quit at any time. Envoy for example: First Officers to earn $60,000 or more during their first year. All Envoy new hire pilots receive up to $22,100 signing bonus, payable on their first day of training Maybe I don't understand what you're saying.
  5. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    I can confirm. My favorite quote: Pilot 1: "Who thinks this is a good idea?" Pilot 2: "Dipshits on the staff, that's who." Staff monkey: "Pilot 2, as a member of the staff, please look me up on Global and give me a call. This is a complex problem and bumper stickers do not work."
  6. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    You know what was fun recently? Flying dedicated formation rides, in an F-16, at an operational squadron, because the student had passed the B-course without a basic proficiency in formation flying. Stuff like this just kicks the can down the road.
  7. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    You're right. It's fine for commanders to treat people differently because of their personal religious beliefs. Thanks for putting this all to rest.
  8. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    So, if say, there was a signed treaty from that time period that said, "the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion," would that be enough to convince you of the founder's intent?
  9. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    It was on JQP. Basically, you can't treat people you command differently because of your religious beliefs.
  10. With the threat of recall a very real possibility right now, are there any gotchas to simply resigning one's commission in the reserves? Can a person rejoin the service after resigning their commission?
  11. Thunderbird F-16 flips at KDAY

    And canopy pooling rears its ugly head again... Sad.
  12. I think the anonymity is for the poster, not the OG. If you give out a name, it reveals what base that person is at, and post histories can be used to find out who that person is. Cue reprisal from said OG.
  13. Why would you apply and not accept a return? Didn't like the job they offered?
  14. USAF didn't even know this policy was going to drop. It was SECDEF acting alone.
