  1. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    As soon as I blow some tires on the 73 I’ll post it... pending the NTSB investigation.
  2. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    My biggest concern is that these "lower quality studs" will be my FO in a 737 in about 12 years (or less when the next VSP happens).
  3. What's wrong with the Air Force?

  4. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Funny... not a single $ in any of those COA slides. Good luck competing with the airlines.
  5. The new airline thread

    Yes. Publish now and don’t forget to factor in terminal leave.
  6. "Center the Bug"

    I just do it because it’s a good way to kill 1.5 seconds of a 5 hour transcon.
  7. The new airline thread

    Had a similar occurrence a few weeks ago regarding parking reimbursement. My company will pay for close-in hourly parking when a reserve is called in with less than 3 hours to push. I had it happen twice in December so I used my credit card to the tune of about $110 - no big deal. Fast forward a couple of weeks and I had some time to hang out in the lounge so I submitted my parking receipts to our base coordinator with nothing but my name and employee number written on them. Within 10 minutes I had an e-mail pop up on my EFB saying the request for reimbursement was submitted. The money was in my account 5 days later. It made me chuckle to think of how this process would have worked in the military. Meanwhile, on the Guard side, I still haven't received payment for a 2-day off-station trainer I did in November because of some fuck-up in DTS that was beyond my control. Citi-Bank has already mailed me two notices of non-payment and somehow I haven't lost a bit of sleep over it.
  8. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    I bet 90% of those parked in the desert would start right back up. You’d just need to have someone there to bounce on the wing a couple of times during engine start.
  9. Taxes, the Deficit/Debt, and the Fiscal Cliff

    We need to remember the true victims of this shutdown... (From JQP - first comment FTW)
  10. Flying Videos Thread Part 2?

    Based on the color of those trails, it looks like they were spraying the mass sterilization compound that day. Fine choice.
  11. Our ANG unit has started rectifying incentive pay in a very haphazard manner. As an over-12 traditional, I'm slowly being made whole for the $1000/mo. figure from back in October and November, but they are still paying me the $650/mo. for AFTPs/UTAs worked last week. It's very random how they are paying out the differences too. I'll get $11.66 per period (or two) worked one day but nothing for the next day. All I can say is track that shit!
  12. More Uniform Changes!

    Every time this thread revives, I come back hoping they're going to allow us to wear black t-shirts and boots again.
  13. Chances of Being Deployed Nat'l Guard

    So are these taskings going to full-timers? Part-timers? Either?
  14. Finance Problems

    I’ve been getting that too. I thought it was just because I haven’t had a pay period in a while, but that didn’t seem right. Glad it wasn’t just me. It must be tough to maintain a website that hasn’t been refreshed once in the 13 years I’ve been in.
