    Air Traffic Control (ATC) Q&A

    I was recently told that deployment history is now masked. Any truth to this? If so, that’s a crock of shit. We’re booting people over their inability to deploy, but not recognizing those that do (especially when non-flying deployments may result in needing a requal, causing one to have an extended period where they’re not doing their primary or add’l duties).

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Accurate. In my career I’ve had two great Sq/CCs and four who’ve ranged from piss poor to adequate. I’ve always laughed whenever a Lt has told me “we have a great commander!” Never listen to an Lts recommendation on CCs, beer, cars or Strip Clubs (or anything else for that matter).

    C-130 down near Savannah, GA

    2. In a multi engine aircraft, there are very few emergencies (maybe fuselage or wing fire) where turning back for an immediate landing is advisable. Ultimately it was a mx issue that started this chain of events, but the situation was not so severe that the crew should not have been able to break the error chain and safely recover the aircraft.

    That Cyber Thread

    Uhh, there are a lot of Es who already need civilian clothes for foreign travel who don’t get a clothing allowance. Why should Cyber be any different? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    They promote doctors to O-5 at damn near 100%. What’s the logic in that other than the increased paycheck aiding in retaining someone whose education and experience command a high salary in the private sector? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think the 100% promote rate for all career fields to O-4 was a case of Fingers realizing he needed to retain pilots, but was unwilling to tell the on-rated types they’re not as important. We won’t go to 100% for all career fields to O-5, and Fingers doesn’t have the spine to call the baby ugly by going to 100% for just pilots.

    IFT deadline?

    I wouldn’t worry about it because SIC time on an aircraft that requires two pilots counts for the purposes of your ATP also. You’ll have plenty of that between the T-1 and whatever you go on to fly after UPT. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    IFT deadline?

    No PPL, but if you’re T-1s (maybe 38s also) once you graduate UPT you just have to take an FAA written test to get your commercial single engine, multi engine, and instrument. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
