  1. This completely. Also, some people like to buy cars, others tattoos. Some spend money on expensive phones or computers. Everyone has their vice. My is driving fun cars. So I’m going to enjoy my Life and drive the car I want so I can enjoy life a bit. With that said, it’s been numerous years since I have had a car payment and because I spent a little extra money I have a car which will probably drive another 15 years before the wheels fall off.

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    I have guys around here doing it. Not sure if it’s legit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I would argue that if I had cash for a car that money would work more effectively for me in an investment while I pay 1.49 or 2.9 percent interest on the car. Market willing I will still have a long term gain. Maybe i don’t understand the argument here but I can see where the loan can be a benefit in the long term. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. One of the IPs on the ground at AUS told me that. They may have been rec’d for commissioning but I don’t believe any actually finished. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yup with three going to one squadron. That may be a new record. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I was talking specifics on the Es. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I bet the only ones left were sitting in hangars which are now probably open roof structures. Absolutely unreal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Students do not learn how to do ELPs anymore. They are expected to fly up initial and land. If they can’t do that then ride the rocket. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. For the lazy peeps out there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I know they didn’t make it through. The learning curve was too steep. The kids we 18 and had zero aviation background. From what I was told as the time crunch started to happen they focused on the Os and left the Es to fail. A couple of them could have made it given better pre-conditions.

    T-6 Air Force trainer crashes in Texas

    “The interim safety board will be looking at all aspects of the aircraft, to include the engine components, to determine the cause of the crash,” Robinson said. Foul number two. Not the ISB’s job to determine cause. Looks like this guy isn’t surrounding himself with smart people. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Don’t waste your time or money on anything UPT related. Don’t bother studying the 11-248 either. With the way UPT is going you will get enough study time and opportunity to learn once you get there. Once you get through commissioning and IFT then start into the UPT info. Until then it’s worthless penguins on the iceberg. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    T-6 Air Force trainer crashes in Texas

    RND T-6s stood down all day. All UPT IPs meet with their leadership from what I was told. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If I remember correctly that area is outside downwind and 90 to initial corner. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Based on the quality of product from PIT it would take a lot to wash out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
