    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    If you want that change done quickly, allow the mission to fail (in training) or like mentioned above, make the pain be felt at a much higher level. This fight from the bottom up will only burn you out, make you bitter, and then go Guard. I once had a Vice Wing/CC tell me “I don’t want to hear about your problems, take care of them at your level.” It it would be nice if I got paid the salaries of all the other people whose jobs I’ve had to do over the years

    FY 18 ACP take rate?

    This is exactly what I was thinking after reading that article. I’m sure there are Generals and Cols congratulating each other for fixing the fighter pilot problem. At least that is what their OPRs/awards will say

    Will probably have a job lined up with the Reserves

    Raptor Gear Up at Fallon?

    RC is they are behind the jet from the start. Late rotation is a contributing factor for overspeeding the gear. Typically the MP being not fast enough to get the gear handle up with the right pitch angle set for the acceleration and climbing away from the ground. You tell me, if you are doing an AB takeoff on a cold day in your lightly loaded block 50 how close do you get to your gear limit before the lights go out? Or even a block 30/40. How close does your inexperienced wingman get? And did you ever look at the video to verify?

    Actually they have in fighters

    Raptor Gear Up at Fallon?

    You forgot to mention getting the gear up before the overspeed. Doesn’t always happen without pulling power and pitching the nose way up to slow the acceleration

    I blame both. I will also raise you the O-6s whispering stupid nothings via PowerPoint in between rounds of using up knee pads

    If you want your finance troop to be effective at combat, then you have to actually train them properly on how to be effective. That means training with firearm outside the CATM range doing convoy ops, base defense, CQB, etc. Otherwise they are just checking off items to green up a slide and are more of a liability than an asset.

    Does everyone get a trophy too for soloing a T-38?

    I wonder when Kwast’s shenanigans as a young pilot will find the light. He did fly fighters at some point right?

    When did students start geting named in UPT? Sounds like an awful idea

    “By failing to address incidents of dangerous behavior and a threatening environment, irresponsible alcohol consumption and disrespectful treatment of some students, these leaders did not establish and enforce a culture that upheld our Air Force core values,” Kwast continued. Where do you even begin to make fun of this?

    Promotion and PRF Information

    You do realize you can still get a federal retirement starting at the time you hit 20yos while being in the Guard right?

    Do what you want. If you want to 365 your way to an O-4 retirement, have at it. The option is to do the same job in the Guard, have significantly less AD BS in your life and still make O-5 for a federal retirement (about $500/mo more in retirement).
