    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    She was actually the RN, and the only one who actually looked at the window to see if it was the correct version. Ain’t that some shit?

    AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    Hover at 6,000’ at 35C? I’d love to see how this thing performs engine-out

    What's your favorite mission?

    I loved going to the tanker. The gunpig was on the forward edge of its energy curve and the tanker wanted to fall out of the sky, all at low altitude and at night. Some guys in the community love to shoot. I think the greatest part of the mission was seeing dudes go home and watching the exfil with no friendlier maimed/injures/killed. Added perk if you got to meet them later on and they had a “thanks for saving my ass” story.

    Heavy guys instructing T-38s

    So knowing this, is it advisable to send FAIPs to IFF to at least try to minimize what they don’t know? Does the recency of IFF experience correlate to B-course performance?

    What is right with the Air Force

    This! I’m pissed off watching Airmen shirk duties for the sake of extracurricular activities, often on the backs of other Airmen. My last office had a SNCO who was too busy doing other shit and pawning off her work on others to make the time for it while complaining about how busy she was.

    He’s also getting his third star. Expect him at A1 shortly, methinks.

    ENJJPT or UPT for AFSOC?

    Fly your hardest. Trim until your thumb has a hole in the glove. Be a good dude. Study your ass off. Follow this recipe and you’ll have your choice as to what you’ll get to fly, regardless of which method of UPT or ENJJPT you go through. The good news for you is that EVERY damn community out there is hurting for pilots, so if you do these things, you’ll be able to take all of the considerations from other threads into account when you make your choice.
  8. So currently stuck without network access betweeen AORs. What’s this talk of renegotiating? Unable to access the PSDM.
  9. This I know (authored the verbiage for SAF/AA, including the expansion of the T-3 option down to SQs). The T-2 is delegable to NAF/CCs, if the MAJCOM/CC desires to do so. AFRC did this with nearly all of their T-2 requirements.

    The same way a guy at AF/SE who had PCS orders to command a squadron was passed over. The dumpster fire continues...
  11. Delegable T-2. Efforts were made to expand delegation down to even Wing CCs but the HAF Directors lost their collective shit when they heard we wanted to let CCs make risk-based decisions without asking mom and dad 🙄

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    So, full circle then?

    Afghan Caravan (208) 365

    How so? No ADSC for the training or 365, so...?

    Moody and the A-29

    Actually, Caravans are for Air Advisors (Big Blue). Combat Air Advisors quality through AFSOC in a myriad of airframes (one of which is the Caravan but they aren’t deploying in the Air Advisor billets). My understanding from the fellas I met in the deployment pipeline is that the A-29 guys can expect to deploy a few times to advise/assist in addition to schoolhouse activities (something maybe the rest of the Air Advisor community should consider, IMHO).
