  1. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    Yes but now we leave the CFS pins in so that doesn’t occur.
  2. Need T-6 Static Display

    This is DLF Info. If you have an air boss and a NOTAM’d temp tower you are good. Should only need an OG approval (DLF approver) for MX support with distance. I would help if I wasn’t sitting in the ‘Stan enjoying the sights.
  3. Need T-6 Static Display

    Good luck. Shouldn’t need a waiver to land/TO. Need it for not being tower controlled and it will take OG approval because it’s greater than 700 miles from the nearest Mx support.
  4. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    A great one here: Location - a lovely ‘Stan Unit - the only one doing 365s Problem - TSgt get sent home early for med issues (very legit issue) AF Solution - send in a temp tech after putting them through training (5 weeks worth) at the same time as the person who is scheduled to replace the TSgt. Then deploy the temp for less than 40 days and schedule temp to leave before the permanent tech even arrive so zero turnover given. To make matters worse when I found out about the gap I asked the permanent tech if he would be interested in deploying early. He said hell ya. Took that solution to leadership and was told “that sounds like more work than its worth”. So instead we send another person (on short notice) through training with the permanent tech and deploy him for 36 days. I was livid when I found out. We were all told it was a forward deploying tech from the Deid. How the hell can people believe this makes sense??
  5. Air Force to begin testing enlisted pilots

    You’re remembering correctly.
  6. Just wear the combat shirt and you don’t have to worry about it.
  7. My last unit uses http://corporatelogos.org/index.htm Once they had our colors on file we would usually receive the name tags in about 5-7 days from ordering.
  8. I’m still rocking my initial commitment. And the big AF hasn’t given me much reason to jump ship. I enjoy what I do and why I do it...
  9. From my understanding there are no C21s at ADW now.
  10. I’ve looked into that however I have to wait for the next board cycle to be posted.
  11. My wife was recently offered a job at the pentagon and isn’t sure about taking it. Her hesitation is she doesn’t want me to stop flying. So, with a C17, T6 and C208 background and a few bases In the area what’s the possibility of flying attached to one of those units while working the the HAF? I know I’m probably going to get laughed out of the park on this one since flying staff job are a dying breed. However I️ have to ask and am looking for people that have good intel before we make a decision. Any info would be appreciated. If I’m missing something let me know.
  12. Personally believe this is a first step to stop loss. "Hey we tried to get volunteers and we couldn't do the only other option is...." that's what I see the leading to.
  13. Leadership at the 'Deid

    Do tell. I know they have rotations forward deploying from there.
