    Happy 2019! May your exit dreams come true!

    I think that’s a valid request. Pull the retirement and get a good deal. What’s the issue? If the assignment doesn’t go thru, retire. I get the feeling AFPC isn’t pulling shady shit these days because the PR nightmare via social media has swift blowback. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. ^this. One time a WIC grad showed up looking to get checked out and didn’t know what the VFR sectional markings meant or anything about ctaf, class g etc. It’s worth a bit of study. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    The new airline thread

    I know some FW guys who decided it was quicker and better long run to go get hours in the regionals for a year to break 1,500 rather than stay AD. Some spent only 6-9 months at the regional and were quickly picked up by a major. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  6. No kidding. I was considering renegotiating if I could get the higher rate but F that. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. New guidance on MyPers open to sign up. 11F: 35k for 3-12 years, choose your length. 100k up front for 7-9 yr, 200k for 10-12 years. Looks like for legacy dudes if you want to stay longer and renegotiate you’ll keep your current rate of $25k. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Personal credit card on the road?

    The one time I could’ve been bit by conveniently “forgetting” my GTC was when my jet broke at Hill and I needed a ticket from SLC but Delta wouldn’t give me a govt rate without the GTC. Called my RA who told me to use my personal at the more expensive rate. Expected to get a talking to as a Capt but never heard a word. I never use my GTC.

  10. Heard summer 19 VML is out as well. Any truth? Makes sense to get them both out early, VML before the ACP. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    F-35 Lightning info

    There must be more to the story here. If the test guy says it’s a big deal, there is probably a technical detail about “how” it was done missing from the article. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    F-15X on the Air Force's Budget Request

    I’m watching a Documentary on Netflix called “Tanks” and its terrific on the rise of tank technology, then when the counter tech was developed for different tank generations, how quickly it changed strategy and approach to battle. I saw a lot of similarities between it and aircraft capes. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    These stories are great to affirm USAF f-ckery and our support. Once as the only US person on an entire U.S. support base flying combat missions at the time I was denied the ability to do my overdue PT test because as they put it, “Sir, since you are not here under a US PERSCO, giving you a PT test could get flagged in the system CONUS when we report our PT stats.” I understood it was a unique situation when Amn x was afraid to get in trouble but I engaged SNCO’s and FGO’s on the matter who didn’t have the leadership or decision making ability to have support personnel provide support to someone doing an actual mission. This was after I showed them the regs allowed it. Showed me that there is a huge leadership void at officer and enlisted levels and a focus on processes vs tasks.
