    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

    Promotion and PRF Information

    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

    Car loans and interest rates

    So I’m about to buy a new car for approximately 58k. I can pay cash, but I’m probably going to finance because I have an interest rate of 3% through USAA (and I’ll see what APR the dealer can get me, in previous new car purchases, they’ve usually been able to do .5% lower). My recent home loan is at 4%. Wouldn’t it make a shit ton more sense to finance the car and make a principal payment on the house instead? Also, financing a car gives you the option to buy GAP coverage, so if the car is a total loss, the balance of my 58k loan is paid off rather than insurance giving me a check for the replacement value of my now used car.

    What is next for the UPT-Next graduates?

    With there being a 3 year ADSC to requal to your MWS, you might see a lot of 2nd assignment UPT IPs not returning to their MWS. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  22. BadGuySplash, I really hope you’re just General Chang’s new troll account. If not, after 4 failed checkrides, you might want to rethink your career aspirations. I don’t think you’re going to be able to explain this away, when there are plenty of other qualified applicants with 0 busts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not at all recent, but the line IPs are GS-12s and can’t work more than 40 hours a week and I highly doubt your Flt/CC is going to stick around for a 12 hour day Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Again, no need. There’s no formal release and as long as you’re not the dumbest motherfvcker in your class (which I’m guessing you’re not since you have the SA to ask the question) you won’t be the dipshit keeping everybody else in Blues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
