    T38 Down @ KDLF

    Treated and released, if I am not mistaken.

    T38 Down @ KDLF

    He had it figured out and was waiting to head to IFF and then B course. You weren't the only one to over G on his watch. Either.

    Nickel on the grass for an amazing dude. He was an awesome inspiration going through UPT, and I wish I would have been able to get to know him better.

    IFT deadline?

    I will be in the minority here, but just press with IFT. You have a guard slot so its not really delaying any training in my experience. I went from OTS, straight to IFT, straight to UPT. Its low threat, most of the instructors are awesome, you can meet some bros, ghe C Springs area is nice, and you are on orders getting a paycheck plus per diem. Better than sitting around after OTS waiting for UPT.

    Have you flown upside down? Answer this!

    Many airframes are limited in inverted flight only by the oil and fuel systems properly feeding the engine.

    Have you flown upside down? Answer this!

    Not all airframes have an asymmetric wing 😉 However, in order to maintain inverted, level flight an aircraft with the common airfoil design would need to use a flight control surface such as horizontal stabs to compensate for lift direction.

    T-6 Air Force trainer crashes in Texas

    T38s resumed around noon, I am sure T-1s followed suit several hours later after they enjoyed sleeping in and grabbing some lunch 😉 I didn't see any T6s in the sky today. https://www.12ftw.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/1639721/update-2-t-6a-texan-ii-crash/
  11. It does show that they are starting to get more flexible with age due to struggling numbers, though.

    Extension to Age Limit?

    I just saw this on the AFPC Facebook page. Has anyone heard much about it? Air Force Personnel Center Yesterday at 9:37 AM · If you’re an officer over 30, you may have thought you couldn’t apply for pilot training. Good news! Air Staff has granted a three-year extension to the limits for both Age and Total Federal Commissioned Service for the 2018 Undergraduate Flying Training Selection Board hosted by AFPC this November. This means that applicants who are under their 33rd birthday (instead of 30th) and have less than eight years TFCS (instead of five) do not require an exception-to-policy for consideration for a Pilot, Combat Systems Officer or Air Battle Manager slot in the next UFT board. Applicants for Remotely Piloted Aircraft Pilot have no age limits at all…you know, other than the whole retirement age thing… This exception to policy is intended to increase the eligible pool of candidates meeting this year’s board. Oct. 26 is the application deadline for the 2019 Undergraduate Flying Training selection board, to include any approved waivers and exception-to-policy requests. Visit myPers and search “UFT,” or the UFT page on the Air Force Portal for detailed application information. #AirForce #AFPC

  14. Good luck! I actually just saw today that they are extending the 30 yr age limit to 33 years. Let me see if I can find the article.
