  1. Great dude indeed. Nickel on the grass brother. 🍺
  2. Yeah...but 2 fighters (well, kind of) over 2 classes and 2 bases...ouch.
  3. UPT advice should be pretty universally applicable. Never miss an opportunity to STFU, fly good, don't suck, help the bros out, learn to make good corn and coffee (and keep it topped up).
  4. Speaking for Laughlin, not at all regarding facilities. And even then, you likely won't have the time.
  5. I am about halfway through. Enjoying it so far. Some frustrating examples of missed opportunities due to political indecision.
  6. New F-35 standard: Rejoin to sensor line abreast?
  7. Throwing another recommendation on the Trident pile. First time buyers, purchasing BVR. Reached out to Jon based on recommendations on here, and was not disappointed. Very easy to get in touch with the team, no matter if it was the weekend or later in the evening. Jon and co were great about answering questions and explaining the process. All while giving a considerably better rate than the usual suspects. Feedback from the realtor was that this was one of the smoothest closing processes she has seen in regards to the lender. No issues at all. I have already sent a few of the bros their way and will continue to do so. Definitely worth checking them out if you are looking for a lender. Thanks guys!
  8. Catman, if you want any chance at being picked up by a unit, you need to stop. Displaying this attitude is not a desirable quality in a squadron mate. This is sincere advice, not trolling. You need to STFU about 6-9 posts ago.
  9. To the OP, Apologies for the derail, but man... Your numbers look good. As the others have said the letter and resume are very important. Make sure there are no errors, correct squadron addressed, ask who to address them to etc. Fine tooth comb it. Also, if you can get out to a unit for a visit before they interview, it would be a good thing to do.
  10. Yet you continue to quibble. There are going to be times in your career, assuming it gets that far, you will not agree with what an instructor is saying. Best course of action at that point is to STFU and listen. You will be given an opportunity to ask clarifying questions tactfully. Your application identifying information is in that thread, you need to stop quibbling. Or you will likely be continuing to 'listen' on these forums as an applicant for a long time.
  11. If you think this is how you need to listen, you are out to lunch. What you are doing right now is going to be seen as quibbling, which won't play well. Also, if you think the dudes who sit on these boards aren't on these forums, and can likely figure out who you are in an applicant stack... This board can be a great source of information if used correctly. If you mouth off instead of taking advice given, you could completely sink your chances also. It has happened before.
  12. "The members involved in the T-38 Talon incident from Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas, on Nov. 13, 2018, have been identified. The deceased, Capt. John F. Graziano, 28, was an instructor pilot with the 87th Flying Training Squadron at Laughlin AFB. He was from Elkridge, Maryland and is survived by his mother, father, sisters and brother. Injured was Capt. Mark S. Palyok, an instructor pilot, also with the 87th FTS. He was transported to Val Verde Regional Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries. He was treated and released Nov.14. “Knowing how everyone is effected by this tragedy, my immediate concern is making sure that every member of our Laughlin family is okay,” said Col. Lee Gentile, 47th Flying Training Wing commander. “Together, we are Laughlin and now is the time that we stand together to take care of one another.” The incident occurred at about 7:40 p.m. on Laughlin. The cause of the incident is under investigation. “Our investigators are doing everything possible to ensure they investigate this incident to the fullest.” said Gentile. The 87th Flying Training Squadron prepares student pilots and Airmen for multi-domain operations. It conducts specialized undergraduate pilot training for the United States Air Force, Air Force Reserve, Air National Guard and allied nation’s air forces." Pulled from the FB page. A huge loss that will be felt by many.
  13. I imagine they would have changed it to CUT to achieve the same name purpose, as they did to the last dude they named the same thing. Taxiing is hard sometimes. I believe the board was potential names, not actual.
