  1. See lots of SFOs and PFOs from 16s and 35s at Luke. Maybe that'll change though with PTN/new T-6 studs. When did teaching ELPs stop?

    ?s on logging flight time

    So I never saved my Aviation Training Jacket when I completed UPT. The ole total student time shows up on my flight records, but zero breakdown for T6/T38 sorties and time. Anybody know if the registrar at UPT bases keeps a record for X amount of time of all grads(talkin 10 years ago)? I know I could just put the total time in there as student/dual on some airline apps, but again no breakdown between the two types. I'm not concerned about the handful of hours of solo time, but moreso accurately reflecting the time in each aircraft and the sortie numbers. Cheers.

    The new airline thread

    Anybody on here recently hired by airlines with close to min time for their requirements? Curious to see hour numbers and type aircraft flown of mil peeps getting hired.

    Questions on the GI Bill (Tuition Aid)

    Yeah in the grand scheme of total force retention tho, they would lose 2 yrs out of me. Got it, not about me, but how many others? I know 2 at my base alone. When u make plans based off a current and known value, it sucks when the known commodity changes. I also understand that the bandit has a vote, just didn’t think the bandit was big blue. I have much to learn still.

    Questions on the GI Bill (Tuition Aid)

    Ah ha! I knew, but hadn't seen til today that there would be some uber restriction. The transfer only occurs if you Palace Chase/Front(the ole AFI 36-2649, Air Force Voluntary Education Program, Attachment 13, para A13.18.8.6). Good luck with that during this time in the AF? I would have problems with this by 4.5 months due to my current ADSC. Anybody know of grandfather'd in kind of things or seeking a waiver of sorts?! Lots of time in, it seems crazy the AF could just give me the middle finger like this. Trying not to be angry.

    Questions on the GI Bill (Tuition Aid)

    Happen to know where this is stated? I've asked a couple people locally and the response is usually "you're stuck on active duty until you serve the commitment." I've also heard, "if you choose to get out at the end of your UPT commitment, you lose any unused benefits." Confirm if I transfer now, with less than 2 years left on AD, I can still exercise an option to get out of AD at the end of my UPT commitment? Then I just don't get all the benefits?? Orrrrrrrrrrrrrr, by no break in service you mean, i get out of AD on Monday and officially start ANG/AFRC on Tuesday? Obviously what i don't want is to sign the transfer and get hung up on AD for 4 more years, but obviously don't want to completely lose all the benefits either. Official options??

    Another asking for a friend..... I had my regular CFII from the civilian world before I joined the AF and also had regular Multi Engine rating, but no MEI I then joined the AF and instructed in 2 engine fighters for a bit. I've also recently got the ATP knocked out. What's required to add the MEI to my ratings? Is it still the mil comp written test as mentioned above, or not since the CFII is already on my cert? I assume it's one more container to check on apps?

    Grd and Reserves too it looks like huh? So if a guy wants to go from AD to grd/reserves and transfer day 1, no longer can he do that if he’s a bit older? Wtf? That could then turn into total force anti retention.
  10. Good points, your last sentence is the best!

    Trends in Air to Air Combat

    Couple years ago they changed the Raytheon Trophy from the "Best A/A squadron in the USAF" to the "Best Fighter Squadron in the USAF." One of the LN Mudhen squadrons won it this year.

    Pilot Math

    Revival....anybody know where it says to use the “full gust factor” for crosswinds? ie if it’s 32G40 then u use 40 instead of the old wom of using half the gust factor? I seem to remember a long time ago people would use 36 for the wind strength since that’s half the difference for 32-40kts.
