  1. GA Aircraft Flown

    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.
  2. 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.
  3. Contractor UPT

    That is awesome. So where are the airplanes going to come from?
  4. The Next President is...

    This is bullshit.
  5. 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.
  6. http://www.airforcemag.com/Features/Pages/2017/October 2017/Air-Force-Not-Preparing-to-Put-B-52s-Back-on-Alert.aspx Sounds like shitty journalism, not that that ever happens. This is happening at more than a few other bases, upgrading/repairing alert facilities.
  7. Palace Chase info

    It's almost like they don't want us to stay in and just separate...
  8. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Amend the Constitution then. Any law the prohibits a citizen from owning "Arms" is unconstitutional.
  9. Flight Pay increases

    This is bullshit.
  10. Omega X-33 Order

    Any updates, its been another year.
  11. Palace Chase info

    Does anyone know if there has been any movement to extend the average 6 months of UPT ADSC by big blue. It seems like the majority of dudes I've talked to about wanting to go Guard/Reserve would rather just not deal with the bs if they would only get a few months waived. Seems like a no brainier to retain pilots.
  12. History Friday

    Still more capable than the kc-46
