    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.

    I think he has a point. I know a few fighter pilots who only flew because they got a pilot slot back in the day. They are fine but it’s not their passion. We have a saying that there are fighter pilots and there are pilots who fly fighters. When I see a fighter pilot General with 24 years and 1,700 hours flying time, I can usually tell what the career focus was. And f-ck you, pay me plus give me flying hours in a sweet location.

    The real way to fix this would be to have pilots simply fly and do minimal qweep, which would instead be done by dedicated support personnel embedded in the sq. Imagine flying, studying and if not on the schedule, free to hit the gym, go home etc with no guilt or fear that just doing your job is going to get you and your family screwed over come assignment time. That’s how it should be. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    The new airline thread

    Are you getting out soon? If not, go buy a private plane, build hours for the mins. Unless something changes, expect regionals til you can make the jump. Getting the mins for ATP is probably the big hurdle. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    Really sad that is all it takes to lose your career these days. He’ll probably have a great stint at Delta though and people seeing this example are that much more likely to follow him out. Big loser here is retention, again. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. I’m only worried about the US side of things since posted are thru the base. European Governments can’t even keep out undesired illegals let alone will they shun tourist dollars should I return. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. Anyone know the ramifications of PCSing from OCONUS with an unpaid parking ticket on NATO plates? Normally I’d pay but they ticketed me while I was waiting at the machine to buy the ticket. Considering just ignoring it but don’t want to get bit during PCS. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
