  1. I have never heard of anyone doing that and I don’t know of anyway that could be possible. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. No, this is a conversion not a plus up. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    The ATP is the reason I’m looking at possibly doing a stint in the regionals. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    The new airline thread

    Hacker, Were your $ struggles at the regionals while drawing retirement pay? I saw so.it.goes’ post about regional pay increase, but was curious if your experience included USAF/ANG retirement pay. I am getting ready to get current/qualified back in an a mil jet after toiling away in the RPA world for about 6 yrs. I am currently AD retirement eligible-hanging around mainly to get current/qualified again and I’m told I’m needed to help out a bit. Once c/q, I plan on applying to the airlines and not retiring until hired. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Personal credit card on the road?

    Not sure of the payout % or stats but I know wings that have gotten it consistently and others that it varies month to month. All depends on the avenues and the pressure applied to squadrons to get everyone to pay on time. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Personal credit card on the road?

    Each wing gets their own. It’s lost for the month if someone on base is over 60 days overdue. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. I’m an ANG baby and we were closer when we flew herks. Once we switched to MQ-9s, we spent so much time together at work every single day that we didn’t do as much together outside. But when we get the large group together for namings, promotions, or retirements, then it feels like old times. But nothing helps build camaraderie like going on the road together. I’ve never been in an AD squadron for other than training and some deployments so I can’t speak to them. But some of my ANG bubbas are like brothers to me. I have called the ANG my 2nd family many times and I meant it every single time. I’ve known many of these folks for almost 27 years and I would do anything for them.

    Maybe they have finally cracked the code. A few old Ops folks were over there, but I don’t think any of them would be SSgt still. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
