  1. This is what is RIGHT with the Air Force, they get it correct sometimes, and this time, they got it so right it will give you chills. Kuddos to Luke AFB.
  2. Told that I must be in status to use MTF

    Generally have to be an established/accepted patient before you show up. I had to be on orders or a pay period to go, TRS should allow you to go to regular doctors/hospitals.
  3. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Thats a keg, you should go to timeout.
  4. F-22 Pilot's comments after flying the F-4

    Put a big enough engine on a brick it will fly.
  5. Who has the skinny on the F-16 RTU students who never flew in Phase III at SUPT and just did sims? I hear there are 2 at Kelly, certainly we have a UPT or Kelly instructor on here to verify. There is more to the rumor but it’s hard to believe. It certainly would increase production quickly.
  6. Dream Sheet Advice

    You haven't said how you think you did, what were your check ride scores compared to your classmates.
  7. Dream Sheet Advice

    Most of them deserved it.
  8. F-22 Pilot's comments after flying the F-4

    Block 42 F-16 with the pratt 220 would have to tap burner with a TGP/NAV pod and 2 tanks, what a pig.
  9. VLPAD

    Aren’t Nellis jobs usually 16 hours of work shoved into a 12 hour day? Yuck.
  10. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    This thread has derailed and I’m on the road and cannot fix it, sounds like they may rip some current T-6 students out of the pipeline and give it a whirl. Good luck, don’t suck and fail a formal course.
  11. What happened to the airline thread?

    Alaska I would guess
  12. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    I’ve heard, but not seen, that things got interesting on the CAF FBook page today about this subject.
  13. Ordering Patches (name, morale, fun meter)

    They have a FBook page that shows what they do
  14. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    I’ve had LOX all leak out in 30 minutes once, but then again, I’ve had way more OBOGS issues
  15. Ordering Patches (name, morale, fun meter)

    Someone beat ya all to it but it’s on the ground floor, at least looking at the website. Good dude owns it, maybe worth filling out the contact info and seeing what they can do. http://www.punkpatches.net/#
  16. Trends in Air to Air Combat

    They are called missles, not hittles
  17. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Who destroyed the squadron at Holloman............. Don't F with Christmas.........
  18. Palace Chase info

    Go to your squadron flight doc, work it behind the scenes, it'll work out.
  19. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    Easy, just put the enlisted pilots under the officers directly, box out the senior NCO's.
  20. Age Waivers

    That would suck.
  21. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    I'd imagine they will try it all.
  22. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    Too old, the AF want's youngin"s so it can project a long term outlook. Senior Captains going through a basic fighter course would be expensive and thy would only get 3-5 years out of them before commitment is up. The other elephant in the rooms is the AF knows who got the MC-12's (I assume you are referencing) out of SUPT, not the top grads.
  23. Future T-38 replacement?

    I'm a T-50 fan but what you need is something that doesn't fly F-4 BFM. Digital FLCS, side stick, and L/M curve that doesn't spike but has a wide range. Learning an instrument 12 degrees nose low and 410+-10 in AB for best rate is not how BFM is done anymore.
  24. Test group to Skip the T6?

    True that, but they've already proved they can be taught so there go your mission requirements.
  25. Crash more than once, I think this is pretty standard, but it did take a while. She seems like a good one, her husband though.......
