  1. Dream Sheet Advice

    Step 5, change your handle to something other than “Sparkle” Otherwise, what Brabus says if you want fighters specifically. You will rain hate in fighters, AFSOC, or bombers. It will just end up being luck and timing
  2. Air Force to begin testing enlisted pilots

    The huge glaring issue is absorption rates. The CAF just cannot absorb the numbers in any meaningful way while still keeping quality at a high level. It would not matter if the FTUs could double the output, there would just be nowhere to go for the numbers they are trying to push. Who knows, maybe they are just trying to help the Airlines out with all the “excess pilots” during the next RIF/VSP cycle.
  3. Trends in Air to Air Combat

    Just look up what it takes to change anything on the F-35
  4. Ordering Patches (name, morale, fun meter)

    Confirmed, Mardon is closing. Don’t know about existing orders
  5. Ordering Patches (name, morale, fun meter)

    Rumor was they closed
  6. Test group to Skip the T6?

    Careful with what you wish for, that is exactly one of the COAs that was proposed to man AMC. They’d go to a civilian/contractor school to basically get an ATP then go to their perspective AMC airframe school. That leaves the rest of the 6/38 student production to go to the CAF while the helos would be there own thing
  7. Future T-38 replacement?

    Easy there Tiger. No need to get so defensive. Please go on, and tell everyone your amazing ideas
  8. Future T-38 replacement?

    C’mon dude, please let the A-10 pilot pontificate on all things A-A. He has probably been to ACSC in-residence, so you should all listen to him
  9. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    A stop loss will only serve to create a bigger problem later.
  10. Thunderbird F-16 flips at KDAY

    Also depends on MX actually polishing the canopy. Their trend has been to skip that step I’ve had canopy pooling as wide as the HUD. I’ve heard it can go about 30 degrees or so
  11. GS-9? I’m sure that’ll work just great. Now I have seen GS-13 step 6 with some extra if you are current and qualified.
  12. Sounds like it would be more fun if this story was in a JQP posting to open up potential viewers. Not the that upper management would do anything about it except maybe whisper encouraging nothings such as “leave, someone will replace you”
  13. Only 8 hrs a day and 5 days a week for AD? What cush job was this, finance? Wait, they only work like 3...
  14. What’s that you say about second breakfast?
