    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Let me play Devil's Advocate for a second, and this is coming from someone who is counting down the days to click submit on airline apps... Most pilots are smart. We know leaders at the Sq/Gp/Wg level have pretty much zero power to affect any kind of change with the mammoth pilot retention problem ahead of them, even on an individual basis. Let's say, hypothetically, your Wg/CC held a pilot retention forum where everyone was allowed to air their grievances and voice their opinion with no retribution. This is how it would probably go... Wg/CC: What can I do to keep you guys in? Maj #1: More money! Wg/CC: Well, now, you know I'd give you more money if I could, but I don't have that kind of power at my level. Talk to your Congressman! :laughs nervously: Maj #2: Less queep, more flying! Wg/CC: I hear you there! But we've already cut X amount of programs. Things like OPRs, decs, etc will never go away. There are things that are mandated by AFIs that we just can't stop doing. On top of that, leaders at the HAF/MAJCOM level keep dropping extra Vol 1 and training requirements that they feel are instrumental to our readiness against a near peer threat. Maj #3: More time with family! Wg/CC: I feel you bro! I haven't banged my wife in months and forgot most of my kids' names. But we're still fighting a war against terror and that won't be going away. And don't forget that just last month we hauled a small percentage of our Army to the border to fight those Mexicans coming from South America. Point being, there will always be a commitment both home and abroad. It would be a constant deflection exercise. They know they're fucked. We know they're fucked. But we all just continue to whistle and stroll past the burning wreckage. Plus, I'm not sure how it is in your community, but in mine, people are holding their cards close to their chest until the last minute then BAM. It's hard for leadership to reach out if they don't know your mind is already made up. TLDR: We're fucked

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    Can we go back to this brown boots with green bags topic? Is this a thing? If so I'm making the switch tomorrow. Fuck it, I'll do it anyways. Good talk boys!

    I don't want to live anymore

    FY 18 ACP take rate?


    The new airline thread

    If all goes according to plan, I will be applying to the airlines in 3-4 months. What should I be doing now to help myself out?
  6. We're keeping legacies around so navs can keep a job? What will State Farm do without their steady flow of new salesmen?
  7. So some hackers might have my GTC info now? Oh noez!

    wat? I'd say a BJ is the most consensual sexual act in the book.

    ?s on logging flight time

    Can anyone explain the conversion from military flight time to the format that airlines keep it? I keep hearing this "add 0.3" but nothing further.

    T-6 Air Force trainer crashes in Texas

    Judging by the pics, it looks like it went down in the field across from Holy Cross Cemetery. Does that check with anyone there? It's been almost a decade since I was in PIT, but doesn't that coincide with the st-in ground track? 90 to initial is more over The Forum.

    What's the flavor of the month for electronic logbooks? All I have is a paper logbook that at some point I need to copy over to an electronic version. That will be fun.

    What is right with the Air Force

    If the hot topic in the "What is right with the AF" thread is the GTC and DTS, we are proper fucked.

    Deny, deny, counter-accuse, deny. This works in any situation whether it be your ROTC CC asking about booze in your room, or your wife asking why you have glitter on your face and smell like vanilla.
