  1. I also had a great experience 2 years ago with Amy at NBKC. No hiccups at all moving to Utah.
  2. I'm sure the entire Fighter/Bomber Directorate is being told to evaluate it. I can't speak to trainers, but yes, that reasoning would make sense, since the MAF pilots would theoretically PCS in without bags.
  3. I can report that it's being evaluated for airworthiness in at least one ejection seat MDS.
  4. Dothan is the biggest town in the area, but it's a half hour away. Most folks live in Enterprise. I've lived in both Ozark and Enterprise, and would put Enterprise above any other nearby surrounding towns.
  5. according to this article, all their remaining Block 15s are MLU (except for the Jordanian once they recently acquired). http://www.f-16.net/f-16_users_article14.html
  6. what defines a "certified" sim? Certified in the eyes of the FAA? Level D only? ? ? ? In my MDS, our sims were not Level D, not certified by the FAA, even though two of the three have motion.
  7. vis only down to 1/4 mi here. cough...cough...
  8. typically, you'll stay in a flying gig until you hit your gate months. Then it's a crap shoot.
  9. 60s are at Moody, Nellis, DM, Kadena, Aviano, and Kirtland (Kirtland being the schoolhouse). ANG opportinuties in CA, AK, NM, and NY. AFRES opportunities at DM and Patrick. DM = Davis-Monthan AFB. SOS (Squadron Officers School) is for Capts. ACSC (Air Command and Staff College) is for Majs. AWC (Air War College) is for LtCols. They are either accomplished via corresponence, or at Maxwell (and there are some joint opportunities).
  10. I think you're mis-reading. He's talking about the companion/adversary jets at certain bases (T-38As). U-2, B-2, and F-22 bases all have these aircraft for different functions (I think it's companion for U-2/B-2 and adversary for F-22).
  11. At least, within 3500 ft... Too soon?
  12. We were in AFSOC before. Sort of. The reason we left was because of the CSAR-X shit hook debacle, essentially Gen Brown tried to hijack us and drive the selection to the shit hook. COMACC saw the writing on the wall and yanked us back to ACC. But, the 55 SOS existed in AFSOC ok.
  13. @17D_guy, since AMRDEC just bit it, are there any AF solutions out there which can be leveraged to share large files across to users around the world securely? Also, someone needs to un-fuck the PII tool so that it doesn't think attached emails have SSNs in them! It also keys on aircraft part numbers with long strings of alpha-numeric characters. When the tool runs, there needs to be a way for us to tell said tool that no, those part numbers are NOT PII. This is a huge issue now that AMRDEC is down and may never come back up.
  14. I think this is going to end up being a poor decision on USAF's part. There was an opportunity to leverage supply lines, training, and the ability to shift aircrew between peacetime and wartime missions, but no, had to go with an airframe no one in the US mil has... Seems like the Us could have filled the niche nicely, already having gone through a shakedown over the last several years with the unit that has them.
