  1. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    Not if you all start ground aborting, the Navy did this and a few F-22 guys back in the day, just don't go on 60 Minutes.
  2. I'd go and worry about it later, the ART program sucks donkey balls plus you can't do mil leave as an ART, only an AGR. Excel in UPT, and toward the middle//end, start beating the war drums that you can't accept an ART position due to being an airline guy, they'll get it if they don't already. The airline job you have already might be your saving grace.
  3. Flying Videos Thread Part 2?

    Can't let that cat outta the bag I think Freq and Maestro are still in. I think I have it somewhere. Apparently there is a Part II at the 16 WPS but its in the vault, which means it cannot ever come out.
  4. Future T-38 replacement?

    That should be the winner.
  5. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Meh, washing them out is a big improvement to the timeline. I successfully invited a few people to try a new line of work at the SUPT and RTU level, the paperwork sucks, but its do-able.

    Dunno if I'd go that far with the Italians, the EPAF countries are generally (sometimes better, hurts to say) as good as US students. A lot of the countries with cultural hangups have issues, I think a lot of them are fighting through this while they learn or don't pay attention, usually to the female instructors. Take it for what its worth, 10 years of teaching foreign studs to fly T-38's and F-16's.

    position # in the new unit.

    You are correct sir! I got my full private pilots license (I think they only did this 1 or 2 years, it was great) at the Travis AFB aeroclub while on casual status, easiest thing I've ever done in the AF, and in a T-41!. My actually point was that the youngin' who brought it up commented on the attrition rate from decades he wasn't alive and his parents were probably to young to produce, stay out of waters you know nothing about.
  9. Personally I say the square root of fuck that, nothing written into the announcement about moving onto F-22's after a few years. I know a few of the SME"s and they wouldn't be doing this unless it was an awesome deal but I would feel like I was playing left bench doing this.
  10. Gun Talk

    ABC does news?
  11. You want to fly a fighter or a trainer?
  12. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    There was no IFS during this time, and of course its after starting.

    DLF back in 2008 as well.
  14. AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    I don't hate NAV's, I think mother AF doesn't like them, my jets background doesn't have them so maybe I just don't understand the need.
