  1. As much as I love the EAA there are some fees that I believe are in the 2-300 dollar range to start a chapter. If the goal is just to get a flying club started AOPA has resources to help you start one. https://www.aopa.org/community/flying-clubs
  2. Good luck with starting it at Cannon. The story that Loach shared just shows how commanders are not willing to take any extra risk. Keep us updated if you make progress, I am sure there are many others of us that would love to get an Aero Club started back up. Our WG/CC kinda blew the idea off when it was discussed. Go buy your own airplane if you love flying.
  3. Sounds like some office linebacker kind of shit.
  4. Damn they really ed up this drop https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=sDo9W_1552726578
  5. I had a buddy that couldn't pass the AFOQT, now hes flying fighters after doing PLC. Keep in mind the difference in how the Marines use their officers compared to the Air Force. They are all Infantrymen first.
  6. I'd love to know if you have ever taken investment advice from reddit wallstreetbets before?
  7. BLUF: LBGTs are checking you out in the bathroom,.
  8. I thought it was a memo authorizing sliding up the sleeves, never an actual change to AFI. Also, we have been told we are not going to buy more FDUs because we need to save money to purchase the Army flight suits. What a waste of money.
  9. https://download.aopa.org/epilot/2007/sa03.pdf A lot of pilots I talk to seem to think that we are still required to complete a biannual flight review. AOPA breaks down some common questions and clearly explains that we do not need one within 24 months of a USAF checkride. Also, I think there is a pretty good sized group of us on here that own airplanes. More specifically Vans RV airplanes, it is the most fun for your buck if you want to buy something.
  10. I didn't want to de-rail the GTC discussion, but if you have the Chase sapphire reserve I would suggest getting the Hilton Aspire card, there are some great benefits to it. $250 dollars for airline fees but I have gotten gift cards with American Airlines with no issues. $250 dollar resort credit at Hilton resorts. A free hotel stay once a year. And probably the best perk is automatic Diamond status with Hilton. Chase waives the annual fee for AD. I am not sure if we can share referral codes but I would happily share mine via PM to get 20K hilton points.
  11. This sounds like a much better idea and use of a Pilot's time. But the AF will never buy in, we have way too many rules and no leaders willing to accept any amount of additional risk. So we will continue to clog up PTX courses with dudes that will fly a different MWS for maybe 2 years before they PCS to some other bright and shiny job...
  12. I don't think it would be that big of a loss of money and that could possibly be a full year further away from that line number.
