  1. The currencies for MSO for RC-26 are pretty simple to maintain. Guard is set up for a part timer to maintain currencies in aircraft, so full time is definitely possible. And again, I'm just trying to see if its possible, its up to me to make it work.
  2. Yeah, a few people on base are currently dual qual'd, but its pilot to pilot. I have both sets of wings, well, one is a 18x wing, so that's why i cant go pilot on both. I know anything can be waived, a pilot in Florida did both crew positions, pilot and cso for the 26. But that was a one time waiver. I'm thinking that since i have both sets of wings and have been qual'd on both, I just need the one waiver to be dual quald. Then I can get a TX-3 course for the RC-26, and maintain both. Flying both and managing orders is another story, but 1st things 1st.
  3. Im not worried about outside the military and not looking for an opinion on the subject, just possibility.
  4. This is Guard by the way. I'm just investigating if its possible. What i've dug out so far has nothing specifically saying its not allowed.
  5. The situation presented to me dictates
  6. I'm trying to find any "case law" against being qual'd as a pilot in one airframe and a nav (or cso) in another platform. They are located on the same base and I have both sets of wings and have been qual'd previously on both. Pilots on the same base have been approved for dual qual, but its to pilot both. AFI11-202v1 para 2.6 says its up the majcom, but doesnt specifically say anything about different crew positions. Thanks for any help!
  7. A little tidbit of information that’s not really well known. A waiver has been passed that allows afsc 18s to fly as a mission system officer on the RC-26. Mostly meant for the two bases where rpa and the RC26s are co-located, but might work elsewhere. I️ thought I’d drop that little nugget here. Cheers!
  8. Hey all, Guard bum here, going to URT at Randolph in the next few months. It’s a tdy for me and I’m bringing my wife and kid, are the circumstances and different for URT than PIT? I was hoping for a non a letter and stay somewhere nice. Cheers
  9. Anyone been through the pipeline or are in it now for an updated timeline? I'm coming from a guard unit and my follow on can be at March, Holloman or Syracuse. Cheers! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
  10. Right now about any state that has a RC-26 needs MSO's. There just aren't many 12xs out there, so if interested I can point you in the right direction. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network Forums
  11. Looking for any advice/insight on an offer I'm considering. I'm a DSG with full time orders in a program that doesn't have a certain future, but would most likely last at least 2-3 years. I'm still a ways off from retirement, ~14 years to go, O-3 looking to pin on O-4 next year. I've been offered the Wing XP position, but they are switching it from a AGR position to a Technician Position to save on resources. It will be a GS-13 position, not sure of what step. I'll maintain being a DSG with current unit and still drill and fly when able. If anyone has any experience with any of these variable's to help me make a decision, I'd appreciate it. I don't think either scenario is bad, just want to see if there are any major gotcha's associated with any of this.
  12. There's a UPT RC-26 job posting right now. http://www.agd.state.tx.us/jobs/air/traditional/147/147-14-25%20UPT.pdf
  13. Right now they'll probably be taking on RPA pilots, they'll be switching from MQ-1's to MQ-9's and need a lot of people to cover current ops as well as people to go get trained on the new aircraft.
  14. Im in the 147th CDO right now. No job postings right now, but could be in the near future. We're short a pilot and may be short a MSO soon.
