    Also. I’ve only had one permanent DO who was an O-4, but he was an IDE grad an O-5 select. I know a non-IDE grad who got picked up for OSS/DO, but he will go to IDE 2nd or 3rd look. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Good luck to you. O-4 seems pretty typical for an AMXS CC. I’ve yet to meet a flying CC who didn’t complete IDE in res. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    AFROTC VS Marine PLC Aviation Contract

    Even when I went through UPT in ‘07, it wasn’t a high-attrition course. Out of the original 20 some, one self-eliminated (he was easily in the top half of our t-6 class, just realized it wasn’t for him), and two couldn’t get over airsickness. From talking to friends who are UPT instructors, it’s gotten a lot easier in recent years as the Air Force can’t afford to under-produce during a pilot shortage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Fair enough. I figured the load plans would usually be such that this wouldn’t be necessary. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Latest Movies

    Especially since I don’t really pay for Netflix or Prime. T-mobile mostly covers my Netflix costs (I pay a couple extra dollars for 4K) and I use prime shipping enough that it pays for itself and prime video is just a perk. I wonder how the studios’ independent streaming services will impact the premium cable outlets. I’m sure WB movies will definitely still make their way to HBO, and Paramount to Showtime, but will Disney/Fox? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How else would they download it? It doesn’t have a ramp like the C-5. Everything goes in through the front. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You are obviously overestimating how much “weeding out” goes on at UPT. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    I agree that pilots should be compensated in the same fashion as doctors, but why not promoted at the same rate also? The promotion rate for doctors to O-5 is practically 100%. Over the course of one’s career, a pilot is (IMHO) tasked with more leadership challenges befitting an FGO than any military doc I’ve ever seen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Good luck to you. The memo was addressed to AFPC, but not ARPC. Might be an oversight, or it might apply to AD only. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Great. They really need to just break pilots out of the LAF for promotion purposes. This is just Fingers not willing to publicly acknowledge that we need to retain pilots. Everybody is a warrior! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Like I said before, both of the guys mentioned in the article are scumbags and probably deserve the sentences they got. I take issue with the fact that the UCMJ criminalizes some behaviors that would not be illegal otherwise. Should we prosecute retirees for medical marijuana usage? It’s against the UCMJ.

    It’s abhorrent that the Supreme Court denied to take the appeal. While both of these guys sound like total pieces of shit, once retired you should no longer be subject to the UCMJ. I almost wish McRaven would get brought up on Article 88 charges just to get a lower court (or better yet the Supreme Court) to set a precedent that one should not be subject to the UCMJ post retirement.

  21. It would help if the laws were interpretable to begin with. The JTR has so many contradictions that two competent people can read it, and come up with entirely different answers, with neither being objectively wrong. DTS/JTR are also not designed for aircrew. I once flew a mission where I stayed in expensive locations, but went 3-4 days straight airborne at 12am. This caused all those days to be “en route”. When we finally had a location that counted for Per diem, it was Gander, at something like $41.
  22. This. Your AO may approve it, but there’s no guarantee. Likewise, I’d be cautious about using Airbnb for lodging. The JTR mandates staying at places that meet fire code, and there’s a memo floating around that says Airbnbs should not be used due to the fact that their standards/compliance are not verified.

    It’s masked as far as the official numbers/AFPC static reports indicate. Obviously the board Is able to see who is in-res between narrative PRF, TR, and student status on their career brief. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
