  1. We submitted mine at around the same time I came back from WP. You can submit as early as you want from what I understand but the hold up in the back side will be that it will not be approved until the SG at NGB has reviewed and stamped your FC1. I don’t think you’ll gain time from submitting early but if your recruiter is telling you to do so, follow his lead. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. Dude... I hooked and faired 8 “TO THE BALLERs” rides in T6s. Never put on flying Cap but was close to it. Always managed to get Es on all my check rides. Things would always click by my 2check. Not everyone learns at the same pace. Some bros learn quickly and crush it from the beginning. Others, like my self... took a little longer. Stay motivated and keep moving forward. At least your not taking the easy way out which is to DOR like I hear some STUDs in the new class have done already. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. Is this how they teach navy folks how to fly? 90% at the VSI and occasionally at everything else? Perhaps the T6B and it’s fancy HUD requires a different flying technique. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  4. Disagree... here at Vance we lost two guys in my class for hooking too many rides. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. Got a picture of the patch by chance? Couldn’t find it in google. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  6. Nah dude the real issue was having to blouse the pants out of the aircraft but un-blouse while flying. Dumbest rule ever in the history of army aviation. Plenty of army bros would give their left nut to wear a bag and feel like a real pilot for a day. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. You should join the Army and fly for those bros. They need a 2 piece hero over there. Nothing wrong with liking them, but Ive encounter more people that prefer the bag over the 2 piece outside of combat ops. I hate the two piece and love wearing the bag. I don’t see how wearing the bag vs the 2 piece is that much of a ass pain. All the sweaty / smelly issues I’ve also encountered with the 2 piece. Being comfortable is important and good for the bros that like it more than the bag. Unfortunately, I can see the bag being phased out not because of comfortability or because it makes sense. It will be phased out because some command sgt major out there is losing sleep over having a force of airman crews operating out of uniform uniformity.
  8. @FDNYOldGuy an inspiration to us ole guys chasing wings. Recruiters will only go so far. Like stated above, it’s the pilots, chief pilot and squadron/wing CC that will push for your waiver... whatever that might be. If they like ya, they will fight for ya and back you up with whatever is needed. Keep educating yourself on the process. It’s easier to have conversations with commanders when your familiar with the process and understand what needs to happen to get from point A to B. Visit the unit often. Be a good bro. Show both pilots and crew dawgs that your a cool dude and fit the aircraft lifestyle and community and you shouldn’t have an issue getting hired.... Good luck. Cheers
  9. One of the best shows to watch while drinking at the squadron bar is a CSO and a NAV arguing about who was the most important/toughest/coolest job between the two. And how the other guy couldn’t handle it... Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. Very limited options out there... use the link below and search for HH60 squadrons. https://bogidope.com/squadron-airline-map/ Or go Army Guard, revert to a warrant, tell war stories to the young guys while drinking coffee. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  11. The flight was about 12 studs. There have been guard and reserve bros in Banzai as well. Half of the other bros got Toners Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  13. Cheers to them! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. Cant keep seniority if you go AD. You can't lose seniority as well in the Guard/Reserves if you pick up an AGR job or TECH job after school.
  15. Is this the future? No boom operators in that back? https://www.businessinsider.com/airbus-a330-achieves-first-aerial-refueling-beats-boeing-2020-4
