  1. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Certainly there's more to it than 500kt breaks, but most deployments fall under the "everything else" category. OAIX or OTBH stan-eval for 365 isn't exactly Mav-worthy.

    If pilots did more of that and less of everything else, they wouldn't be stampeding the exit door for a job flying 136kt ILS finals.
  3. The new airline thread

    I did it in Denver at FTI for $7K 3 years ago.

    Plenty of enlisted members fly for the airlines. Let's pay for their training and give them wings so they can get their faster! Win for them.
  5. Gun Talk

    Yep. Dude tried to organize a boycott because a chick teased him on the interwebs.

    Don't get too comfy. NGB has no problem throwing you under the bus to maintain "relevancy." ANG guys teaching in-country C-130s today, A-29s or F-16s or C-208s tomorrow. http://www.ang.af.mil/Media/Features/Article/863815/ang-air-advisors-building-afghanistan-air-force-one-flyer-at-a-time/
  7. Many of us have found that it's tough to do airlines and keep flying in the ARC, and airline FO sure as hell ain't PhD rocket surgery. IMHO and USERRA aside, if your team will notice you're gone and constantly have to pick up your slack, it's not a great match for ARC flying.
  8. LA ANG is hiring!

    They'd reject every app for attachments containing unencrypted PII.
  9. The new airline thread

    If there are seats they can get on. Edit: For D, that's spouse or travel partner, parents, and kids. No in-laws, siblings, etc. We've had great luck going to off places in off times. We buy seats if we gotta go or there are few flights. We don't try to go to Orlando in March More edit: Our trips are always 1 leg. Exponentially harder doing 2 leg non-rev.
  10. The Herks had a mission in Iraq and elsewhere that was TS and required Advanced Beatings. Policy for a while was all ACs and Navs would have the TS. Didn't seem to last though once those taskers waned.

    Yes and no. You still have to get hired by a Sq/CC. He has to like you enough to accept you into his organization. No, it's not like applying to some primo F-69 guard unit, but still, don't approach it like they can't not hire you. And yes, guys have been fired from Cat E jobs for getting hired and then being slugs. Here's the kicker: Like I wrote in another thread, if you're moving to airline base housing in DFW, ATL, or DEN, then good luck. They can't have 6 ALOs for one high school, and you may not want to drive 3 hours to the high school they assign you when you have to see a kid in person. If you're going to commute from somewhere less saturated with airline guys, then there probably is room for you.

    Awesome. So the white dudes can go to the bar while the minorities and women go do show-and-tell after their 3-hop XC to Austin. Who thinks this stuff up and doesn't filter it between their brain and their mouth?

    Because your first V1 cut SHOULD be in a 120,000 lb, 4 engine airplane.

    I taught your mom all about apotheosis.
  15. ?s on logging flight time

    Thoughts are that (1) if you're OCD and want it fixed, go for it. I get it. But (2) don't do it for the airlines' sake They're simply not going to look at it that closely. If they do question you on a penciled-in 2.3 discrepancy, it's to see how you react, not to actually question your hours. I handed the panel 4 logbooks (AF, Navy, electronic, and early civilian). Counting the application, they could have compared numbers from 5 sources. There's no way they all added up. Didn't hear a word about it.
