  1. I've known some crews that fly pretty often together, don't salute each other because they're friends. As for the wings, loadmasters and some other afsc's have very similar looking wings. 99.9% of the time they're not pilot wings upon closer inspection.
  2. If you're visiting a unit, I would definitely show up in uniform, even as a DSG.
  3. As a guy with a GED and a degree in basket weaving, in UPT currently with Guard fighter slot, it's very possible with those scores. Keep pushing with that attitude and you'll land a slot!
  4. Rushed / the VR is useless after the first few weeks of trans. This is just what I've been told by a few.
  5. This is the first of I've heard/seen people coming to DLF from UPT Next. It's also the first I've even heard of anyone washing out of Next. My class is the one right behind the "innovation flight" where they're testing UPT 2.5 and we already have 2 people who got washed back. The students are not a fan of it at all.
  6. Yup, apparently if you wash out of UPT Next, you have to fully start over and do the normal syllabus.
  7. 5-7 months is the average for AD guy/gals here at Laughlin. They train up some APTers to be full on crew chiefs...
  8. Currently here at Laughlin, the "innovation flight" goes through what is similar to UPT 2.5 for T-6's then they track just like everyone else and go through the same toner and 38 syllabus. The feedback from the students is not great.
  9. i'll hop in here before someone tears this apart. Search around the site, and majority of the questions you have will be answered. Airframes will dictate your balance. I'll just say "it depends".
  10. Just make sure you're spelling Tucson right on the app.
  11. I failed it at MEPS when I enlisted and failed it at FC1, then they gave me some ben franklin looking bifocals and all the sudden it became very easy. So I just have to fly with glasses is all. The technicians are super helpful and they'll work with you.
