  1. Pilot Math

    I like the technique of telling the controller what crosswind I need to takeoff/land..the gusts usually take care of themselves. Plus most regs are ‘demonstrated’ crosswind limits...
  2. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Jealous... I find zero job satisfaction on my third exec gig; nor do I wake up excited to go to work. I love the chances (which are minimal) when I get to fly, and I signed up for the QoL, as did my wife. But you’d be hard pressed to convince me that 12 hour workdays editing endless awards is “serving my country.” Pretty sure my wife would understand my absence better if my long days had a direct impact on national security. To each their own I suppose.

    I think it’s a superb idea. The warrants can fly so us officers can focus on TMT approving MICT, flying is getting in the way.
  4. From what I understand, yes. Consolidated contract maintenance for the Gulfstreams and 737s is a big money-saver. Not sure what the C-21s use..
  5. OSA consolidation is in the NDAA FY19, once it’s signed by the President, the pieces will move fast. Expecting the signature sometime this fall, with consolidation in the Spring-ish timeframe (if Congress keeps it in the NDAA).
  6. C-130 down in Afghanistan
