  1. 2! Not to derail this into a PMP thread, but do not go into the exam without knowing this process chart and these formulas cold. I wouldn't have passed if I had done just the Syracuse courseware and not done substantial other prep.
  2. In small talk with passengers waiting on a flight or deadheading or whatever, I've been astounded at the number of people (mostly in sales) that are on the road 20-23 days/month. I'm glad they do what they do so I can do what I do. It's convinced me that there is no such thing as work-life balance in many industries.
  3. 24hr lodging "rule"

    The AFI is subordinate to the JTR. Unfortunately (in this case) we've spent a lot of years telling the AF it has to pay us IAW JTR because AFI was not in our favor and the JTR trumped AFI. Now the roles are flipped. As much as possible, don't land on bases when you go XC.
  4. Worse. ARC guys generally have the ability to exit much faster and with a much less uncertain future. A guy already holding a purple seniority number, but on mil leave to work at JFHQ after a command tour, is not nervous about feeding his family "on the outside." I guess they'll learn that lesson the hard way.
  5. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    Domestic is too broad to say. 737/757 transcons might be 1 leg/day. 717/88 might be 5/day. But 73/75 have 3 leg days and 71/88 has 1 leg days. As many as fit in 117 duty day limits - that's how many you'll do. Max FDP without an extension is somewhere around 12-13 hours. Edit:. With that said, I'm kinda senior on a small NB so I avoid the max FDP days. Day 1 of my next trip is 4:20. Day 2 is 2 deadheads. Seniority matters.
  6. How long to be CFI

    You're probably asking the wrong forum, bro. Your audience will be more appropriate at APC, etc.
  7. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    Table 17 seems to jive with 25K. At least reading it on my phone. https://www.faa.gov/data_research/aviation_data_statistics/civil_airmen_statistics/media/2016-civil-airmen-stats.xlsx
  8. For those looking for an off-ramp from the operational ARC/AD, a little birdie told me that CAP-USAF has a Cat B opening in the Northeast Liaison Region (NELR). That means you get your AT days and TRS. It's posted on AFPC Secure > Reserve Vacancies > IMA Officer Vacancies > 95XX. Great gig for those of you slumming it around EWR/JFK/LGA/BOS/PHL.
  9. 5,800? Was that a typo? The number is a hell of a lot larger than 5,800. I had thought it was upwards of 30,000. Per year? 5,800 might be a little low if you count EVERY airline, but the big 6 are good for around 4k/yr. Certainly nowhere near 30k/yr.
  10. North Korea at it again

    Here ya go, retirees: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=rekt
  11. More SARC briefings soon.

    You got it backwards.
  12. Doesn't really matter. Fly a great jet and don't pass up an opportunity to shut up. Encourage your classmates to do the same.
  13. Herk Down

    One tweet says an engine a mile away. WTF. Do we know H or J?
  14. Ah, I see now JBLM was code for McChord.
