    Damn straight! It's good we are starting to get the ball rolling in the right direction... It's going to be even more important to keep it rolling-looking at you Wg/CCs and future leadership. As mentioned earlier, "be good at your job/do your job", work hard, take care of others, and unfortunately luck, timing, and who you know will help you out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Seriously got it right. Standup for your dudes, and standup to your dudes. Create a team that plays hard and works hard... Competition is good, but squash the douche baggery. Be the guy you would want to approach and have looking after you as your leader/shit filter with the instructors. Remember not to get too involved in the SRO deal and let it effect your flying. Find that balance, that's why your the SRO... We preached bromanship in our class and we were lucky with the people we had. Great dudes! Our SRO was basically mutinied because he did not preach or follow the above principles. However, the ASRO did from day one and was the informal/real leader for the class. Come assignment night the SRO got a pred and the rest of the class got their top 1, 2, 3 choices... So don't suck and not take care of your dudes! PM if you have questions.

    C-130 TOLD Calculator

    The KC-10 is currently using iPad minis with phaero and good reader enabled. We are using the kneeboard or window harness for the flip. It's an whole new world using the mini. Great product. The Booms currently have a program built in for form f's, e-told for the iPad should be just around the corner. If all goes well each MWS should have functional EFBs and the apps in the next few years... It's getting around comm and politics to get the products we need.

    Per AMC A1, "The '05 Maj board should have an accounting date between Nov-Jan with a board date between April-May." They also stated: "ensure you are the best aircrew member you can be (instructor), however get your AAD done and don't screw off with PME... Changes to the AAD might be coming but don't expect them to trickle down for awhile." Nothing really new above, but to the young pups: fly your butt off, become a great instructor, and work on the rest of the stuff as it comes along to not be deemed a clown when it comes promotion time. Find a bro who can help you out that is a few years ahead of you to clear the air on all the bs. Luck, timing and who you know are huge as we all know, but without being a great aviator, taking care of your training/records, and doing the "extra" things leadership deems important that luck, timing and who you know won't happen sometimes... But remember its about building credibility in your community in the jet first then outside the jet SECOND. Cheers!

    Last Beer You Drank and Rate It

    If you are in Miami head to Burger and a Beer Joint. Burgers are the best I've ever had and the beer selection is top notch!

    I love this thread...
  11. Try talking with Coinforce outside the front gate. Also look into aviatorgear.com *edit look at prior post on nametags4u-another good site I have used for custom patches as well If you ever make it to Kadena go to Tigers Embroidery (off base)-they can make anything and have it finished within 4 hours.

    Bringing a Pet to UPT?

    Don't get a dog until you are married and have someone who can properly take care of it when you are gone. UPT is the worst time to have to worry about a dog. My buddy had one while going through training...it ran away
