    Can we get rid of cyber too so we can focus on flying jets?

    OCPs Arrive Oct 1st, 2018

    So are they taking my bag away? Also, I want my black boots back.
  5. http://static.e-publishing.af.mil/production/1/af_a1/publication/afi36-2107/afi36-2107.pdf So I've heard that as long as you are under your UPT ADSC then it is only a 2 year PCS commitment. What do you mean that it needs to be waived? Anyone have first hand experience?

    Someone just posted to TPN that JetBlue is giving out free airfare to military members wanting to travel to PR for the service.

    Someone post the threads!
  8. I don't think anyone has updated this thread about the Chase Sapphire Reserve card. They changed the policy and are waiving the annual fee now. Pretty good deal for us AD bubbas.

    I own a RV-6 and I felt like it was the best trade-off of all the RVs from the used market perspective. The RV-4 has better visibility. But the tandem seating the CG becomes a issue more often and there is less/just about no cargo space. The RV-7 has slightly more fuel/cargo capability but there are less of them on the market versus the RV-6. There are some other small changes between the two but the lower cost of the 6 outweighed them. I'd love to build a RV-8 when I have the time some day when i'm older but they are damn expensive used. RV-9s are for X-C cruising, no aerobatics. RV-10s are for small families. RV-12s are for old dudes that lost their medical. RV-14s are for fat old dudes or if you just want some extra breathing room. I have a blast every time I go flying. It is really cool to be able to cruise somewhere at 165 KTAS burning 8 GPH or just around buzzing cows.

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Very eye opening, thanks for posting this. Sounds like they are going to train light attack guys like we have done with the Afghan dudes.

    That is awesome. So where are the airplanes going to come from?

    This is bullshit.
  13. All it seems like they do is lobby for the defense contractors. I don't think they give a shit about representing USAF service members.
