  1. WTF? (**NSFW**)

  2. Meet and Greet Etiquette

    Gecko’s article is a great reference. Not a pilot, but I was there and saw what you’re referring to. Essentially, introduce yourself when the opportunity presents itself and avoid giving out information that wasn’t asked for. I.e. humble bragging about your accomplishments when it’s irrelevant to the question or topic. It can be hard to do as you’re there to show “I’M THE ONE!!” Mingle with the other applicants as the pilots may take notice to this; not sure how keen Buckeley is to this. Simply put, hold a conversation with whomever you’re talking to and genuinely show interest. Another thing, don’t be the guy who constantly throws questions out there that includes a background story about how great you are or who you know. This is the person who shoots themselves in the foot. Pilots can elaborate on this, but coming from a military family I was always told not to ask a pilot “what’s it like to drop bombs on xxxx people” or “have you been shot at by a xxxx weapon”? If they offer the info great, if they don’t then don’t pry. That pilot may not want to share that information. My $0.69 so take it with a grain of salt as I haven’t been picked up yet and that may be why. Lol

    Thank you. I've called both POCs listed and left voicemails with no response, so I will email as well. Good luck!

    Has anyone had success getting ahold of the recruiters for the Hawaii ANG to get the UPT information?

    Sounds to me you need to change your work out routine, so you get a different response next time.
  10. "He may have flunked the 'near-miss' part of the high-speed aerobatic pass, caused the death of a man with 17 years' flight experience when he sheared the wing off of Cmdr. Hickock's plane, vomited into his helmet, panicked, inverted the aircraft with the throttles maxed, and hit Mach 1 just before crashing into bleachers full of spectators with almost a full load of fuel," Blue Angels commanding officer Brock Saxon said. "But he nailed the steep climb and the steep dive, and he certainly had showmanship. If there's one thing I keep telling my cadets, it's that you can't teach enthusiasm. I think we all learned a little something about the power of raw enthusiasm here today."
