    Did NASA/JPL rip off Squadron Posters?

    The "squadron posters" style has been around for a while (nearly a century...), But squadron posters made it cool again for military aviation Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Pilot Preparation Program

    If only there could be access to cheap to rent aircraft available for military members who want to learn to fly, and maybe even their dependents. Maybe some sort of club of flying? Probably just crazy talk. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    AFOQT Prep Book Recommendation

    Disagree. Knowing how the (spatial orientation, etc) questions are asked and how to answer them will only improve your score and reduce the stress of testing. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    Welcome to the internet. Anything posted online is there forever... What's the worst big blue can do? Issue a takedown notice? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    AR was a T-X requirement, not an additional capability Boeing added. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. Who will be your formation leads and MCs for large package airdrop (C-17/C-130)? Not really something the 11S or 11R communities really do, and not something you could soon people up quickly to do. Even if they could fill in for 11Ms, who will backfill 11R/11S? Also, AMC has been supplying lots of extra bodies for rated staff billets and the white jet bills-who will fill those if the 11Ms punch? When I left T-6 nation, my sq had more C-17 pilots than FAIPs... Not like any other community has an excess capacity like AMC had, but now AMC bleeding out as guys take their international widebody aircraft experience out to the civilian market.

  8. Sooooo... Any rumors on this year's bonus or when it'll be released? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. Nah, we're the greatest military to have ever existed. There's nothing we can't do. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. Just finishing up ACSC-DL, and it's been somewhat interesting. Probably would be more interesting if I had more time to delve deeper into the material. But it does make me scratch my head and wonder why we do the things the way we do, especially when what is taught in PME seems to be 180 out from what is practiced.

  11. Meaningful deployments that actually matter. The stupid PowerPoint builder deployments need to go, but they aren't the only ones. Even stupid flying deployments need to go. You can only move the same pallet of literal garbage, or the same vehicles back and forth, before you start to wonder why you're there away from home. How about also admitting that a 365 is actually a remote (i.e. PCS), and not an ITDY? Yeah, I may have volunteered for the military and the deployments associated with it. But if you take away the meaning from the work, and don't increase pay to compete with the civilian sector (that generally doesn't need that meaning or sense of patriotism), well, don't be surprised when people don't volunteer to stay any longer. Maybe getting into wars with no realistic and achievable end goal is also strategically stupid to the overall health of the military, and a huge drain on national resources.

  12. Or did they just split them into 2x 179s that can't be 3-day opted? That's not really solving the problem Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. The army is rated higher. The army does 1 year deployments. Therefore, the air force would improve if we did 1 year deployments. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Retirement / Separation Considerations

    I think you're right, can't turn down a 179 if it's tasked before you have a separation date. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    Any word/rumors on the leather jacket and 2 piece flight suit? Love the 2 piece, but it's cold out... Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
