  1. AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    The last round of UPT directs into my RPA squadron were definitely not the bottom of their class. I agree that RPA weapons employment /= OA-X weapons employment. Once we are established in the stack, it’s a 2D maneuver (3D if including timing), but learning fundamentals about weapons employment like how to run checks, weaponeer, final cross check, and employing at the optimum geometry for weapons effects would carry over. I’ve already got one foot out the door and OA-X probably won’t hit the ramp until I’m an airline captain, but it’s a mission I would stick around for if given the opportunity.

    Plenty of us from heavies obtained weapons qualifications in RPAs, proving that when the Air Force is desperate they will do what they have to. However, we were treated as red headed step children for a few years until the 11F experience left the squadron. OA-X is another reason for the push to increase production, because anyone left that the Air Force may want to entice into that platform will be long gone before it’s actually fielded. That’s the problem with viewing ex MC-12 guys as a pool of experience, all the ex MC-12 guys I know have taken their experience to Delta.
  3. Is this the claims department at TMM Jacksonville? I’ve heard recently about claims taking a while, but that is ridiculous. We already had to pay to fix our washing machine that was broken during the move and come spring time I have to buy my kids a new trampoline because they trashed it. We shouldn’t have to fight for years to get compensated for losses. Reason 2,469,569 dudes are tripping over each other on the way out the door.

    Give HeShe a TS/SCI and put HimHer on the Senate Intelligence Committee! What’s the worst that could happen?
  5. It’s just another data point of the Air Force showing us what we are truly worth.
  6. The Next President is...

    Watch a few of the videos by Numbers USA about our current immigration policies and what it will do to our population in the future. At the current rate of 1 million legal immigrants per year, our population will be almost unsustainable in 50 to 100 years. It’s like a lifeboat floating away from the Titanic, we can either let everyone swarm us and drag us to the bottom of the ocean, or we can teach them to build their own damn boat to float in.
  7. I would like luggage tags as well, I’ve been looking for the ones that have double snaps so they won’t fall off.
  8. Blended Retirement System Puzzle

    Tricare also advertises a Retired Reserve plan if you are under 60. Premiums for a family are about $1,000 a month, but it has a low deductible. It states you are eligible as long as you aren’t eligible for Federal Employee Health Benefits due to some other government employment. Might be a better option than employer coverage. https://tricare.mil/Plans/HealthPlans/TRR

    My 59 year old mom hasn’t had healthcare for a year. The premiums doubled last Jan and they couldn’t afford them along with the high out of pocket costs. So now she is uninsured and just pays the fine because it is less than the cost of one month of premiums. Now she is playing the odds that nothing serious will happen to her until she’s eligible for Medicare at 65 or something corrects the healthcare market.
  10. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    If I was a Sq/Grp/Wg CC here’s what I would do: Once outdated regs or processes are identified in my organization, I would draft a policy letter identifying that additional duty or process that my people will no longer execute and give the CSAF guidance as justification. If Congress or someone else wanted to then investigate why we weren’t executing some program that was mandated, I think the CSAF is pretty good top cover. But who the hell knows, they’d probably try to throw me in jail anyway for not having a unit voting assistance monitor. That’s why I’ll never be a CC in this organization.
  11. Promotion and PRF Information

    Oh yeah, I forgot that part. Who knows what they did and/or are doing.
  12. Promotion and PRF Information

    It wouldn’t surprise me if they went through the whole scoring exercise just to get the O-6’s some training on the process. Instead of streamlining it to save time and effort...
  13. Civilian T-6 IPs?

    You weren’t afraid of the USEM? Are they really that nice these days?
  14. New BAH rates are out.

    Is it McCain we have to thank for that?
  15. Dream Sheet Advice

    I had many memorable days in the Reaper that were more exciting than this, probably will never make live leak.
