  1. From what I saw on the MAF mentorship page, no back pay entitlement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Only if you didn’t fly the 38 in pilot training. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Depends, I know the numbers a Laughlin were pretty low for a while but then got better, then they increased the student load which increases the IPs required (in theory). So short answer, I have no idea but when I left in April we were hurting and I know they decreased the CAP and are washing students back because they can’t keep up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. What’s old is new again. ELPs are back in the syllabus. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. He definitely would have more of a single seat mentality. The larger point is the waiver required. This guy didn’t have the airmanship he needed. He admitted to me his AC upgrade was basically done so he could PCS, not because he was ready. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Honestly it’s about 80/20, with the heavier side being guys who need additional training out of PIT. I believe that ratio will flip as PIT is being forced to bring their training requirements back up. The OBOGS stand down really hurt the T6 IP force as guys showed up having never flown ET3, were not proficient in close form to the point I wouldn’t want them on my wing in the WX. Prior to the summer of ‘17 the product and pilot performance was pretty solid. I can’t speak too much about what transpired between the spring of ‘17 and summer of ‘18 unless you want to talk about the ignorance of the SAF/IA office thinking UH-60s can replace Mi-17s and AC-208s being an effective asset in Afghanistan.

  7. What exactly do you disagree with? As a prior UPT guy the quality of product from AMC was pretty bad over the last year. I had one guy roll in and his indoc took 5x the average. As a qualified pilot he circled to the wrong runway. Multiple times he tried to get his TI IP violated because he didn’t know what he was doing. A second guy at the same time, showed up with 3 Q-3s on his record. Ironically, he should have been given one at PIT as they wrote on the form 8 his deviations, which exceeded Q-2 standards for BAC. Still was a Q-1 overall. Both guys received waivers to go to PIT. I know both of them had multiple issues when they finally hit the line including breaking aircraft. I think a better look at the waivers and process will help cut some of that out AND make it easier for PIT to give the UPT bases a better quality product. In turn, we have better instructors to create a better product for the FTUs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. I would say the probability is high. DLF currently has a T-1 trained, PC-12/C-145 guy teaching 38s after a few years teaching in T6s. Someone with that background can speak better to the CAF IMO than most C17 bubbas. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Has anyone used SkyWarrior in Pensacola? Looking for feedback. Any word on Downtown Avation’s program being shutdown? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Any word on cause of this one? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Wrong. You don’t have to take the 10 days immediately upon arrival. That isn’t written anywhere. As a matter of fact, if your RNLTD allows I would just not check in until after your planned vacation. Any days which are beyond your allocated travel days will be counted as leave regardless.

  13. Isn’t that what the bike test was supposed to do years ago? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Don’t know if I agree in the current climate. I’ve seen more CRs in this he last four months than in the 3 years previous. We have been told to produce a certain number but are scheduled to pushed a 10% higher number. From leadership, attrition is expected and supported. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Better description is a U-2 try out at the end of a two year 38 gig. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
