    What is next for the UPT-Next graduates?

    The AT-6 wingspan is only a few inches more than a regular T-6 not 33%, you are correct that the prop is a bit fatter/bigger but it already has the majority of the requested capabilities built in, so a retrofit seems pointless. Plus I'd be willing to bet that the retrofit/testing would cost more than an AT-6 straight off the line.

    What is next for the UPT-Next graduates?

    Doesn't the AT-6 meet most of these requirements already?
  3. You're right, posted without thinking, my bad.
  4. When is the last "class" at the UPT bases? By this I mean, which is the last group to have a traditional drop night, and have they figured out how assignment selection will work?
  5. Just posting what he said, didn't say it was a fact.
  6. Talking with a buddy who recently left there FAIP's are almost the only way they get IP's at Laughlin anymore, guess there has a been a large number of 7 day opts following the notice they're headed to KDLF.

    There is a mentality at UPT of "well person X will just be a co-pilot and will have the AC looking over their shoulder, so I'll pass them." When asked what about when Stan becomes an AC, the response is usually "the community will see their weak and prevent it," or "well they'll have had more time in the air by then." Seen it plenty of times, it's the excuse to avoid hurting someones feelings.

    Future T-38 replacement?

    ^What he said, the T-6 canopy was never an issue except the stupid hooks. If I recall correctly it weighed in the vicinity of 400lbs, never had anyone struggle to open it.

    Future T-38 replacement?

    Did I not layer the sarcasm on think enough for you? I'm actually very excited the AF is finally replacing the -38, and also very curious to watch its development.

    $10 says it's IOC is closer to 10 years, any takers?

    Future T-38 replacement?

    Nah, proper engine out procedures/emergency handling can be learned at FTU where it's cheaper right? And why do we need this new aircraft anyways? Pilot Training Next showed that you can just do VR and a T-6. /sarcasm

    UPT Weight Lifting

    ^What this person said. I will say that doing a basic workout 2-3 per week helps a lot, there is a component to the g's but really it helps clear your nugget and help keep off the weight of energy drinks and popcorn.

    How Long For New Studs To Be Disillusioned?

    Pretty sure this doesn't disqualify you from being a pilot...
