    Questions on the GI Bill (Tuition Aid)

    Same ADSC. Once you opt to transfer it you can redistribute it as you see fit. If you have kids down the line and they are added to MilPDS, you can redistribute months to them with no additional ADSC.
  2. That there’s a lot of tankers in one drop...

    BLUE: Episode 25 Pilot Pipeline

    Haha...in my day we flew upwind both ways and barefoot in severe icing. How about the 300lb bluesuiters sitting next to you who knew that it took exactly 13 “clicks” of trim to level off?

    Promotion and PRF Information

    They’re Wing and GO execs too...I know of at least 3. They also teach VTRAT, so there’s that...
  5. T-Mobile has a great cell phone plan for military. They are offering the T-Mobile One unlimited plan at 20-50% off depending on how many phones you have: https://www.t-mobile.com/offers/military-phone-plans I’m paying $80 for unlimited everything on 2 phones which includes free Netflix (if you already have Netflix, they take over the payments), international roaming, hotspot, etc.
  6. They sent only 3 AD to fighters out of T-38’s? So much for growing out of the pilot crisis.
  7. I admire your faith in big AF’s ability to take action when confronted with a retention problem

    SOS/ACSC information

    I’m sure you know as well as I do that declining to compete on my last look is equivalent to showing my cards before the flop is even delt. Does it weigh on me that I could have possibly taken a nomination from someone who wanted it? Yes, but I am keeping doors open until the last possible moment. I have to do what’s best for my family and my career, in that order.

    SOS/ACSC information

    Thanks for the advice @Champ Kind. I’ve never been a fan of having to play the “I want to be the next CoS” game, but I’ve never had enough trust in my leadership to be open and honest about my career aspirations. @tac airlifterCopy, I fully intend on doing so.

    Question about declining IDE. I just found out I was the #4 guy pushed by my SR (2-star) for IDE on my 3rd look. I don’t really have any interest in attending IDE in residence since I love my job, I don’t want to pack up my family so soon (I’ll be at 1.5 years TOS if I get picked up), and frankly I don’t want the 4 year commitment that goes along with it. I’m consistently ranked in the top 10% of my peers and generally consider myself quite competitive for O-5. My questions are: 1) What are the chances of getting picked up for school as the #4 nominee from a 2-Star? 2) Now that you can decline school without prejudice, is there anyone out there who declined IDE and still made O-5?
  11. For those with an AMEX Platinum or thinking about getting one, here’s another not so well known benefit. In addition to getting automatic Hilton Gold Elite Status, the card also gives you SPG Gold Status. SPG was bought out by Marriott recently and Marriott is matching your SPG status, so add Marriott Gold Status to the list. All you have to do is link the two rewards accounts and the status transfers in a couple days! Also, annual fee is still being waived for AD.

    ADSC Waiver to Retire

    Is it possible to separate/retire before the GI Bill transfer ADSC is up? It seems to me that you’d just be giving up the GI Bill benefits in that case since you didn’t fulfill the transfer ADSC. Asking for a friend.

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    As a guy who lived through Fairchild’s ASEV failure in 2010, I can vouch that paperwork matters. That being said, would I revoke someone’s IP qual for screwing it up (even repeatedly)? Hell no, but said IP would get really tired of briefing the squadron at training days.
