  1. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    Great. How could they make it more convoluted.
  2. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    With a large open hole at the bottom of your cru-60 to let most of the pressure out. If you forget to remove the new attachment there goes your 10 min of O2.
  3. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    Great what could possibly go wrong? I can’t get out of T-6 land soon enough.
  4. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    Add in issues with our EADI and EHSI flying to fail and causing massive smoke and fumes in the cockpit and the fact that our CFIS may not work and you have yourselves a winning combination. What could possibly go wrong with breathing ambient air?
  5. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    What we are hearing is sometime next week limited flying will begin. At my base we may only have 6-9 aircraft that pass inspection with the new tcto. Each base sent a smattering of pilots down to rnd for training and flying the t-6 with the new “configiration.” They will return to teach us how to fly breathing ambient air, then the ct train will start. I’ll believe it when I see it. Sounds like another shit sandwich the Air Force is trying to shove down our throats in order to progress the timeline and help that pilot shortage!

    Key advice...never pass up a good opportunity to shut up.
  7. Wait...you work duck? I don’t think I could ever find you when I needed to! Cheers!
  8. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    I get the point in we are too old. Assuming we all came from the bottom of our class isn’t correct though. It was definitely a mixed bag especially initially when they started sending dudes UPT direct to the MC12. Either way the Air Force has a problem it will fix in different ways or it doesn’t and we get stupid ideas like 45 hours in a T-6 direct to the viper. Not trying to start a pissing contest just pointing out some hypocrisy in the system. Cheers!
  9. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    Funny they missed an opportunity for 55 dudes and dudettes who have T-38 training and deployed operational experience with 1500-2000 hours of flight time to help fill the experience gap and they stowed a majority of them away in the 11R community. Something tells me the Air Force doesn’t really want to solve this problem they have created.
  10. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    The problem with this is when we hold the standards on the students and send them to a board, we are told somehow we screwed their training away due to some asinine numbers problem, and boom. Dude that couldn’t cut it and had multiple 88 and 89 rides is back in UPT feeling untouchable. The flight commanders and line IPs on my side of AETC have been neutered which brings the thought process of “I’ll pass him because it doesn’t matter what I do, he’ll progress through upt anyway.” It’s a shame and the student and product suffer in the end.
  11. T-38 Down @ DLF

    I knew him in field training and ran into him again during pilot training. What a great dude. Made field training a riot, and great support for a dude trying to figure out the transition from navy 34s to the 38. Very sad day in the aviation industry. He will truly be missed. Him him.
  12. In my end of the world we weren’t so lucky. Our stuff made it all the way to the wing. Haven’t heard anything from anyone since the announcement. Glad I worked on those prfs. [emoji107]
