  1. A buddy showed me this. Haven’t seen any updates lately but I was seriously going to throw down to get one. http://raptor-aircraft.com Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. Should have gone with Airbus... Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. I don’t trust “the Bobs” at all (or the Gary’s and Tammys at SWA), but SWAPA and the majority of other guys at the company are in it as a team. It’s been pretty cool to see. The private talk on our SWA forums is a pretty all-for-one mentality.
  4. No not sarcastic at all. I feel blessed that we seem best equipped to weather this storm. Still praying for all my other airline buddies. Several have told me that they feel like furloughs are coming for them. I have seen enough positive comments from our group at SWA that the culture isn’t dead.

  5. SWA just announced Voluntary Leave with partial pay. Details haven’t been disclosed yet, expecting words later in the week. I am so thankful to be a junior guy with them during a time like this. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  6. I do know of guys who have cancelled a separation request or had it adjusted to the right. So it’s definitely possible! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. I am so glad I decided to keep a Guard job and not just cut ties completely. Being able to bring in extra money for just a little bit of work is a good shock absorber in times like these. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Pretty sure he never made it past Major. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  9. I’m in a 135 unit that doesn’t even advertise our boards because it just gets stupid. Maybe not as nice as Tampa but within a 2 hour drive to a hub for every major airline. I can easily see 200 apps flooding in to Tampa. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. Yeah... In Tampa Bay... with Orlando being a crew base just 2 hours away... Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    For a guy who goes by Pick your Battles, he certainly does a crappy job of picking his battles... (don’t say his name two more times) Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    I’m just glad he was able to get internet installed in his moms basement/bunker. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. We had a similar situation years ago at my ANG unit. A guy who was essentially in your same situation. From what I recall, it will all depend on how your attrition was classified. This guy essentially washed out of the ground school and there was no way to bring him in the unit. On the other side, I have been trying to help one of my old UPT students get picked up by the NOAA to fly after he was washed out of B-1 ground school and then told he couldn’t cross flow into a mobility asset (ridiculous). The latter guy had everyone from his flight commanders to the wing commander vouching for his ability when Gen Rand decided to overturn the recommendations and just FEB him completely. Maybe things have changed but my guess is that you have a really big uphill battle to fight here. Hopefully someone who has more recent intel can chime in, but bottom line I think it’s going to fall with how you were classified at the termination of training. Force shaping=ok; performance based=probably SOL... Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. Yeah, I don’t understand how there can be so much disparity among units doing the same job just with different MWS. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. I appreciate the Chris Farley gifs. Best of luck man! You seem to be doing all the right things. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
