    What is right with the Air Force

    Current location to check in and out? Why in God’s name would that be beneficial? No wifi in the lobby, now you’re wasting time tethering to your shitty T-mobile connection to log into DTS at alert. Good luck with the personal cards too (I’ve used mine when my GTC was declined or lost, but if you don’t have a good alibi you’re flirting with getting paperwork). On that note though, now that Citi has adopted a political stance on gun sales, anyone know if that would be a valid reason to get the SJA office to write you a memo exempting you from GTC use?

    Is there anything you won’t say in an attempt to excuse your conduct? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think Billy Mitchell at least knew better than to screw his subordinates. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Sprint also operates on CDMA based networks while T-mobile uses GSM. While most phones ship with radios for both, it probably puts a significant drain on your battery to have it constantly searching both for better service. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flat Rate Per Deim - Gone

    Nice try. Per diem is reduced when you share a place. The lack of a requirement to provide receipts isn’t carte blanche to commit fraud. Finance can still request a copy of your lease. You’d have to get the landlord to lease each of you a room individually to avoid that, which many would be unwilling to do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flat Rate Per Deim - Gone

    2. I did a 6 monther in Tampastan just before the flat rate policy came out. I would have been very hard pressed to find an acceptable hotel or furnished apartment at the 55% rate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Space Force

    When the E-8 and E-9 ranks were created, the AF killed the WO billets to accommodate.

    I am all for Cyber and any other type of Warrants...if it means we reallocate E-8 and E-9 billets for it to happen.

    Pilot retention in your neck of the woods?

    We’ll have no ACs or leads anymore, lmao

    Pilot retention in your neck of the woods?

    Yeah, I’m plenty well versed on filling out a 781. Some airlines don’t consider your Other time while the A-code as PIC.
  12. Still sucks if you get tapped for a non flying assignment at around the 7 year mark, or 15 on if you’re planning on staying til 20. Then your options are get out with no recency or incur an ADSC for doing your primary fvcking job during a pilot shortage.

    Pilot retention in your neck of the woods?

    Which begs the question, if an AC is flying with 2 CPs and can’t claim PIC time for their bunk/other time, shouldn’t one of the CPs be allowed to? What if you have 2 ACs, can the non A-code claim PIC while the A code isn’t at the controls?
  14. And I don’t see the number going up much in the remainder of the FY. With the 5 year bonus in the past, there was less of an incentive to take it early since you were probably staying til 20, so it didn’t matter if your ADSC took you to 17 years or 17 years 3 months. I imagine that the vast majority of takers will take whatever takes them to just under or just over 20, so unless they commissioned in August or September, signing late only extends their time on AD. There are probably a few still on the fence who may make an eleventh hour decision, but I don’t think there will be many.
  15. If true, shouldn’t we all put in PC apps for the remainder of our ADSC, and reapply each time they’re denied?
  16. They can waive the ADSC and make you PCS anyway. That said, I doubt they will if you have to go through FTU, since they’ll get even less useful time out of you. Where I’ve seen it happen is guys with less than 2 years left being sent to either instruct at Altus or go to staff. 7-day opting can also put you at the top of the list for 179s.

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    Congrats! We need to find more ways to keep Chiefs occupied with unimportant things like this where they can’t do any actual harm!

    Trends in Air to Air Combat

  19. I heard it was briefed at either RND or a UPT base a while back by the 19 AF/CC. That said, I had also heard that the Air Force wanted to up the bonus to 60k in 2016, then 48k in 2017, which made it through the house markup, but the Senate shot that down. I don’t see the Senate approving additional pay for pilots as long as you have guys like McCain and Cotton on the SASC.

    My sq was only giving inbounds 1 new green bag at initial issue (no annual issue).

    I much prefer wearing the bag, but really? There are plenty of careers other than the Air Force where you can wear pajamas to work.
  23. Wtf? How can he (name’s on the MAF thread) seriously suggest this as a viable solution? If HAF stands by this policy, they’ll straight up revoke any waiver requests. If they don’t, they need to just fix the fvcking AFI.
  24. When did the bottleneck shift? It’s been at the FTU for a few years now. 2 years ago, URT was supposed to reach an output of 384 a year; that should be more than enough to sustain current CAPs, even if every RPA pilot bails after 6 years.

    Pretty sure the movies starts with “A long time ago...”. Flightsuits are soon to be extinct. Didn’t you get the memo that every job is equally important in the Air Force and we should all look identical?
