  1. Not to worry. With the new ADSC rule change, it makes up for it. #FixedTheGlitch

    Flying Videos Thread Part 2?

    Cool jet and all, and the T38 companion was nice, but it sounded like some of the most boring single seat flying out there, aside from the .00001% actual mission nights.
  3. Most TAMI folks should meet R-ATP mins. They were selected with 400-500 MWS hours, probably flew another 100ish hours waiting to PCS, and it’s total time, so 200 UPT hours count. Oh yeah and it’s mil time, so + .3 a sortie! Knew one guy who got TAMId, then went on deployment before he left and ended up with 750 hours in his jet.
  4. Guess I’m not exactly the demographic you’re referring to since I long ago had the logbook to step right into 121, but... I also had some RPA stink, but would gladly take regional pay and QoL for a window seat. Never wanted to go. Gave my best when the “needs of the AF” said to. Would have separated within 3 years of retirement if the AF hadn’t PCSd me out. Pay is important, but it’s not everything. If the AF can get a little something out of someone while giving them their preferred path, that’s what good talent management looks like. It’s not all “give me exactly what I want with nothing in return.”

    Hopefully they didn’t pitch it as Gen 4.5

  8. I'm gonna take a swing at this and guess that we're loading the dugout so that the shiny pennies can go to the new hotness in the next 3-5 years.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Government approved solution$.

    What is right with the Air Force

    Oiy. And this is why, @Danger41, I suggest eliminating all but lawfully required (handicap) designated parking. If the WG/CC isn't being "shown respect" there are bigger issues, throwing rose petals before his feet isn't the solution. If the number of times per day that a SQ/CC has to go out to their car in order to chase down queep is driving the proximity of their parking spot, the proximity of the parking spot is not the root cause of the DFP.

    How about just erasing all reserved spots? For leadership, reserved spots are antithetical to servant leadership and an embarrassment. But the AF then goes full retard, not only duplicating higher leadership spots all over the base, even in parking challenged bases like Osan, but then doles out spots to favorite pets: CCE, CCS, GOV1, GOV2 etc. ...didn't someone write a paper on this?

    Non-Availibility lodging/letter

    For that matter, whenever a base lodging office has "helped" me by making my reservation off base, I usually just call and cancel it from the taxi on my way to my desired location. JTR, FTW; SorryNotSorry.

    Non-Availibility lodging/letter

    Whether or not this applies to SPG, dunno. But at Hilton properties, some operators will not give the points under the same circumstances (group booking and/or corporate card). Wait 3 or 4 days and call up Hilton Honors, and they register the points. A hassle? Yes, but not the end of the world, imo.
  14. Maybe I'm missing something, but this appears to be congress' checkers move, not AF leadership'. Yet. I'd imagine that congressional staffers hear and discuss the same batch of bright ideas that we churn through, so this is just congress asking "hey, what about this one?", to which the AF as duty experts can weigh in and shed light on why it's not a wise move.
