  1. You are in ROTC still... right?
  2. https://www.wsj.com/articles/jim-mattis-duty-democracy-and-the-threat-of-tribalism-11566984601? A no-brainer, but a good reminder. “Institutions get the behaviors they reward.” - Mattis
  3. Anyone in charge here? This article does not mention promotion, but these concepts should be considered as we're about to overhaul the system. Take note. "To find a solution without letting unvalidated assumptions dictate design, we eliminate solution-oriented language (e.g., "I need a car") and substitute problem-oriented language (e.g., "I need to be at work every day" or, even more simplified, "I need to accomplish work"). This is how we discover the value-basis for what we’re designing." https://thestrategybridge.org/the-bridge/2019/7/8/keeping-off-the-grass
  4. Normally after the window closes, which was the end of this month, but it was extended to mid Sep. Even so, rumor has it that fixed wing pilot take rates are expected to remain in the 30s.
  5. Say, “We care if you leave. We don’t want you to. And, we’re going to fight to keep you. We’re on the Hill right now fighting for you.”
  6. Didn’t the AF just say something about how White jet is going to be highly valued now and a virtual requirement for higher leadership?
  7. Leveled off from our max rate emergency descent... but the stud hasn’t pushed power back up from idle yet so someone is going to have to take the controls soon. Rapidly losing flying airspeed. Add bonus. I mean, power.
  8. Nevertheless, hard to argue that the AF did not fork the guy... I have empathy. Especially when this has more or less been my experience every, single, PCS. Unfortunately, like you said, it seems to happen to everyone. That said, if everyone stayed silent there would be 0% chance of leadership accountability or change. As far as the pro tips, good stuff. In this guy's case he sounds like a prior E guy who is going to finish out his 20 in 4-6 years.
  9. So how can we say we have "stemmed" the pilot shortage??? Air Force Stemmed Its Pilot Crisis, Chief Says A widespread shortage threatening the core of the Air Force’s mission appears under control
  10. These days these assignments show on MyVector.
  11. Fixed it. RAND. Blah blah blah. And yes they can afford it.
  12. Refreshing? That’s depressing. We’ve totally given up.
  13. What would you say if you were a betting man?
  14. On the contrary, there appears to be a blood pact from the top to simply not discuss the pilot shortage anymore. There’s been little to no publicly distributed news, briefs, or media, for what seems like months. I’m sure it will fix itself. Just turn it off and back on again.
