    AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    How U.S. Taxpayers Are Spending $1.8B For Afghanistan To Fly A Couple Dozen A-29 Attack Planes The estimated annual sustainment costs alone are more than twice what the U.S. Air Force pays to operate a squadron of F-16s for a year. So based on this information we should buy US Pilots more F-16's then right

    IPhone to Galaxy S9+

    I heard this once from an Apple guy and to this day it continues to be the best description I can find. Apple is best if you are ok with a company telling you what your device needs to be and have. Samsung is best if you want to decide yourself. Example developers have to submit thier apps to Apple, if the company feels it can make money off what you developed then you can pay to put your app on the app store. With Google you can simply upload for everyone benefit. Work makes us use iPhone but for personal I have had Samsung for the last four generations of phones ; Samsung has always been more intuitive and when you have both you learn how accurate the first statement is.

    Based on what I had in the last program, aircraft were sold at $25m each for same packaging. The key question in the award is three words and how much those will cost. Some additional info actually only an 800m increase not 1.8b.

    Technically that is an EMB-314 not an A-29 but meh... Two props forward it might actually have a reasonable CG range finally that would allow additional weight to the rear for ER tanks..

    Which Tablet, Which Software - GA Flying

    Thank you to everyone on the responses. I am going with the Pad and FF as everyone has suggested, have used it in the past and liked it just didn't want to invest if anyone knew of something new around the corner.

    Which Tablet, Which Software - GA Flying

    I have both Samsung which I like and Apple due to work which I tolerate. Have used Foreflight in the past, I plan to go the usual route of the Ipad etc.. just wondering if anyone had a better/different take on the same topic.
  7. Looking to invest in a new Ipad Pro and Foreflight + Jeppesen, before I drop a far amount of money on this setup I was curious if anyone had some better options or advise on why to go this route or why not to go this route? Aircraft already has a GNS430 as primary so this is more big screen for pubs, flightplanning, weather, take out of the plane ease of use type function. Thanks in advance.

    USAF giving away OV-10's so long as you provide the transportation to final destination.

    But Holmes said he was not concerned that the tragic event would have “undue impact” on whether the experiment moves forward, or whether the service tries similar efforts in the future. “I don’t think it will have a chilling effect on future experiments,” he said. “Whenever you’re trying something new, there are risks of trying something new and working through it, and without knowing exactly what happened, and certainly without trying to insinuate exactly what happened — aviation’s not necessarily risky, but it’s unforgiving.” “I think we’ll take a look at the data we’ve gathered, [and] we’ll continue ahead with our process toward deciding whether we want to go forward with the program.” Wait I thought these were combat proven platforms......... It is truly unfortunate that it always takes a good person's life and skill to prove the futility of some of these programs to people that should be listening to start with.

    Is it that the process is broke? Or is it we don't actually enforce it because the public care's more about world opinion then our actual imigration laws? Every country on the planet is doing the same thing as the United States, if the press would report that then people would actually respect laws of said countries instead of walking over them and claiming it is in human interest. ** My .02 - it is the USA responsiblity to take care of the legal citizens of this country, NOT appeal to people who's first act getting here is to commit a crime against the country by violating it's imigration laws. Technically anyone who enters a country without consent can be considered an invader, perhaps we should declare war on Mexico for their invasion of the US - oh wait....we did that once already. Sweden is to reject up to 80,000 people who applied for asylum in the country last year, as many as half of whom will be forced to leave against their will, according to official estimates. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jan/28/sweden-to-expel-up-to-80000-rejected-asylum-seekers There are 37,288 illegal immigrants in Israel. 71% of them are from Eritrea, 21% from Sudan, 7% from other African countries, and 1% from non-African countries. Most entered Israel illegally from Sinai between 2006 and 2012, and many live in south Tel-Aviv. Illegal entry into Israel from Sinai during those years was possible because the border between Israel and Egypt was only marked by a low and easily trespassed fence. In 2010, Israel began the construction of an impregnable barrier which was completed in 2013. This barrier has put an end to illegal immigration. http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/israel-is-not-deporting-refugees/ The new Norwegian Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, began a program that deports Muslims who have ties to radical groups. And something stunning occurred: the country’s violent crimes are down more than 31% in less than a year since Muslim deportations began http://toprightnews.com/heres-what-happened-when-one-nation-started-deporting-radical-muslims/ Other countries following suit.
