    Am I the only one that thinks Brianna Hildebrand (aka Negasonic) is hot?!?
  3. Imagine if the USAF would use airframes already in their inventory! C-146, C-145, CN-235, DHC-6, C-208 Crazy idea!
  4. What do you have to be to be eligible for no property tax? After reading the disabled veteran’s exemption, mine would currently be $10k from the appraised value. I’m expecting more disability when I’m officially done with my military service but that still only shows $12k off. Does a 100% VA disability rating make you eligible to pay no property tax in TX?
  5. Is that a VA rating of 100% disabled or 100% permanently and totally disabled? I’ve been told that you must be 100% permanently and totally disabled to not pay property tax in TX.
  6. Biggest problem I see is that you call a squadron member a “back ender”. I think I’d rather get yelled at!
  7. They’ll be 2-3x AT-6’s at Nellis and 2-3x A-29’s at Hurlburt; no more, no less... Honestly, the only LA platform that makes sense is the Boeing/Fulcrum Bronco II but that won’t be IOC until probably 2028.
  8. I personally briefed Gen Clarke on Light Attack last week and he was very receptive to what Light Attack can bring to SOCOM and FID. Hopefully this opens people’s eyes in D.C. because we all know the USAF isn’t fully on board with Light Attack. The problem though is that SOCOM doesn’t purchase aircraft (just modifies them) and the buy still has to come from the USAF. https://www.defensenews.com/air/2019/05/17/us-special-ops-command-at-odds-with-air-force-over-need-for-light-attack-aircraft/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=Socialflow+AIR

    VLPAD

    You are rolling to AD for a single, specific assignment that last 3 years and 1 day. You’re still on the AFRC/ANG promotion cycle and when done with your VLPAD assignment, you go back to AFRC/ANG (but not your original unit unless they hire you back).

    Surprised nobody has said anything about Avengers: Endgame. Unf**king-believable movie! 3 hours that felt like 30 minutes. Brings great closure to some of the franchises while creatively opens others. Oh yea - The Dude abides!!
  11. As long as you have your ATP with 1500 hours, you’re competitive. The airlines currently are able to keep up with the retirements but that will soon change and they all know it. United, for example, is continuously adding new classes and they currently are having classes with 30-40 new hires in them. Unless something drastic happens, all pilots will have job security.

    VLPAD

    Applied for the VLPAD and am still waiting on word about one of my choices and I greatly appreciate how upfront and honest the Porch is but this is what I’ve been told presently. Was told that I’m not eligible for any fighters because I’ve been out of fighters for greater than 7 years and there are no FTU TX slots available. Also told I’m ineligible for some of my white jet choices because no PIT slots are available. It’s unfortunate that certain exceptions can’t be made for experienced, but unqualified, pilots (11F, 11M, 11S, etc.) trying to come back on AD because I can’t be the only person this is affecting.
  13. I’m in the exact same boat as you! I’ve had the same size waist since I was 18 years old (38.5-39.0) and haven’t slowed down on my 1.5 mile run since I joined 18 years ago but I am “obese” per BMI because I’m not a toothpick and on the verge of failing every time! I blame Gen Skeletor that implemented the stupid waist measurement in the PFT! By God, he was 150lbs soaking wet and probably had a 28” waist. If I was that small I’d want a bonus too on the PFT. Hell, all I want is the waist measurement to be removed and I’d be happy...
  14. USAF PFT should not be that complicated. Push-ups Sit-ups (or timed plank) 1.5 mile run Get rid of the waist measurement!
  15. http://airforcemag.com/Features/Pages/2019/March 2019/OA-X-Projected-to-Cost-More-Than-1-Billion-Through-2024.aspx ”According to 2020 budget documents released Monday, the service plans to buy 24 aircraft over the next five years: four aircraft for $160 million in 2022, and 10 aircraft in both 2023 and 2024 for $400 million each year.”
