  1. Same Learned today IMR pink, new higlight, means optional.
  2. Is there not still Senior and Command Pilot Wings? (There are, and Unicorns still wear them) Is there not a Master Instructor rating from AETC? (There is...) For both of these the AF doesn't, practically as in benefits, value them. Commanders get additional pay do Master Instructors? Or Command Pilots? Who gets preference? Commanders get to schedule themselves, do Senior Pilots?

  4. 5 year buckets aren't yet instituted, ask AFPC/A1...as far as I know continuation and twice passed over are still "things"...my data is from this week
  5. You mean as in OSD vector infers sub 1 percentile? Tell you this much that hopefully already know: The realistic percentages that can actually fulfill those vectors do not match the actual capability/quantity of billets So, thresholds are typically inferred as <1%, 2-5%, 10%, 25-30% and...Wing Staff. There is a few conflicting slides/numbers floating around functionals' webpages. And your right, seems MAJCOMs infer different numbers
  6. Navy is and will be using AFSAS...or, uh, NAFSAS?! That'll make their stuff easier to see through your local AF/SE rep. https://www.whs.mil/News/News-Display/Article/2325542/three-tips-ease-move-to-new-incident-reporting-system-taking-effect-aug-31/
  7. You mean they're debating subtle numbers (promo board OOM) which are REAL feedback!? And delaying, thus not giving, useful feedback. No way, pfft! Patience is what Big Blue demands without saying, patience and trust. Which is exactly what people cautiously grant or no. Side question: if a person meets a supplemental promo board and gets picked up, what is their line number/OOM? And hence, what is their back pay?
  8. President Washington owned slaves (https://www.mountvernon.org/george-washington/slavery/ten-facts-about-washington-slavery/), should we not celebrate the 1st President because of this association? Should we rename D.C. and Washington State too? Many value and follow the Office of the President, should we abandon that too because of a historical association to the 1st President? Values change when the context changes. Understanding why, where, and when they change, via historic lessons, is seeking true wisdom and balance. Not celebrating history, those lessons of historic values and thei

  10. Absolutely MWS affects career opportunities; however, as a rule of thumb, not absolute rule. Big MWS = more opportunities but more competition, and typically more relesability later in career for different options/paths. Smaller MWS = fewer competitors however not necessarily less opportunities, depends how far apart the asset is spread. Positions like staff, test, DETs, etc. vary in size, location, and impact. For both types of MWS, big amd small fleet: Look at mission, typical TDY locations (i.e. MSN/CC or DET/CC), etc. Opportunities abound in the next few years due to high a
  11. PPM isn't normally allowed for Transocean PCS', requires a big waiver Mailing was HHG for me, USPS shipping receipt listed price and weight for reimbursement. That was 12 and 8 years ago
  12. ...can't imagine the runway which the 4 Horsemen could've form-landed ...near Edward's maybe? Oh yeah, ...A long time ago in an Air Force far, far away...dinosaur Herk pilots ruled the sky in 4 ship fingertip form
  13. ..."and weather forecaster"... Wonder if he knew his forecast was cloudy with chance of $h1tstorm?
