    Promotion and PRF Information

    It’s like PCS’s or deployments, you are probably the first from that base. So you will have to bear with them as they figure it out
  2. That is what the CV community briefed ACTF. With metrics!
  3. According to the CV guys, they wanted to prioritize students this way: T-38 TH-1 T-1 The ACTF wants to do the reverse.

    Heavy guys instructing T-38s

    Pointy-nosed generals? Those are politicians first. Just like the heavy generals. And aren’t those heavy generals just doing amazing work with the MAF?

    What is right with the Air Force

    The only way to do that is to punish the stupid
  6. The ARC can’t even get guys to fly blue air as a GS-13. How will you find all these pilots to fly red? Also, the T-X needs a radar, jammers, etc to be adequate.
  7. Been there, done that and will never go back to Cannon. Was TDY/deployed half the time and still managed to put 20,000 miles on my car. And when the wind were from the east, the strong aroma of cows was ever present in the vault. Is there still a war zone south of 9th? And do they still have 10% of the town as registered gang members?

    Tanker to Fighter

    Two questions would be did they fly -38s in UPT a d how old are they. Plus they’d have to pass the bro check
  9. Continuing as a LtCol past 20 years in AD? Pass. The QoL increase as an AD quitter has far exceeded the bonus. We all make choices, and mine was the Guard.

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    How is it smart to put a bunch of UPT Next kids into Blk 30’s. They really need to be put into something with AGCAS. I’d prefer not to see more iron left in the desert.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    i wonder how many times Norty will say “All in” or “Double down” in his book.

    F-35 Lightning info

    Like no one saw that a decade ago. Maybe the warning just got lost with the whole retention problem message
  14. Oh good. Just more things the FTU has to teach. What could go wrong?
  15. Not teaching perch anymore?
