    Military Pilot Shortage and Aero Clubs

    Robins has an aero club and I know a couple non-pilot types that are getting their civilian ratings to hopefully apply to a UFT board. The base offered a significant scholarship to any AD or AD spouse. Very few applicants, but one of our penguins was awarded a scholarship and it’s nearly paying for his entire PPL. If anything, it will help their PCSM if they don’t complete the entire program.

    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    Not sure what my assignment has to do with this. I voiced my concerns appropriately months before assignment night. There were multiple things going wrong there. The new LTs probably just thought “this is how it is”, which was a huge disservice to them. Having been around longer than most of the IPs there, I could recognize problems. I’ve PMed you.

    “a threatening environment, irresponsible alcohol consumption and disrespectful treatment of some students” isn’t too far off in my personal experience within my flight. That being said, I had a blast there (most of the time).

    T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    Should I edit the name of the topic to “VR Stole My Car & Got My Wife Pregnant”?

    T-38 Down @ DLF

    Fairly similar with the addition of upper leg straps and the arming lever. I’m not sure what the purpose of the lever is since the pins should be sufficient.

    T-38 Down @ DLF

    Really humble dude. He would study with us in the flight room after he got back from his deployment while we were still fairly new in 38s. I had a really good one-on-one convo with him during our naming ceremony that still sticks with me today. I saw him the day before at his spot in fam camp. Tough read I was putting off. To stuck 🍺
  11. RUMINT says RPA drops returning... not even the “fun” one.
  12. 69 aspect is 69 aspect. Most of the principles remain intact.
  13. They’re dropping from T-1s primarily. As a T-38 student now in JSTARS, I can tell you almost none of the 38 syllabus carries over into this airframe. They don’t even let us talk on the radio while “monitoring the autopilot” 🙄
  14. FY18 is a new animal. We have 3/7 going to ACC heavies. They told us 1-2 fighter and no AMC

    Future of E-8 JSTARS?

    GA Congress folk pretty much stopped fighting for recap since ABMS will be in their state. From COMACC, 2 to the boneyard FY19, then 1 a year until the last two FYs when it’ll be 2/year. That was a few months ago, but still sounds like it’s the plan.
