Is getting T-6 FAIP'd from T-38s a normal thing? Seems like they would want all T-38 grads to go straight to the CAF.

They have to have instructors. Try can't only pulling from the CAF to have T-38 instructors. It's a balancing act way above my pay grade. "Robbing Peter to pay Paul" type of situation.

I've heard from one of my 38 buddies that getting faip'd to T-6s as a T-38 stud isn't good for the fighter career. From what I understand it's sort of a derail from fighters. I have yet to seen a fighter bros as an IP in T-6s. The few I've seen around are in T-38s, but there's a healthy number of bombers bros as 38 IPs. 

I'm no expert on how FAIPing works by any means, but that seems to be the gist of what I'm hearing around. But not everyone who gets 38s is meant for fighters.

Getting FAIP'd in general apparently closes a few doors (Weapons School for example, or at least makes it more difficult), but it seems most of the T-6 FAIP's who flew T-38s in UPT are heading to fighters now. As for T-38 vs T-6 FAIP, as with anything it is a bit of luck and timing as well. There could be a dude who would be a great FAIP, but there isn't a slot for T-38 PIT available to the Sq at the time, so they end up in the T-6 instead.

Previous 2 posts are wrong. In my WIC class, there were at least 2 T-6 FAIPs going through fighter courses.

Being a T-6 vs T-38 FAIP has no bearing on follow on assignments.

Definitely glad to hear that FAIP doesn't make it impossible to go to Weapons School. A number of people had mentioned it is much more difficult being 4 years 'behind' as far as time in your MWS goes, is this true?

There are also 3 FAIPs in my TPS class... F-16, B-1, and C-130 backgrounds.  I think they were all T-6 FAIPs.  Definitely didn't hurt their applications to have 1000+ instructor hours in a different airframe than their primary MWS.

No tankers dropped at any of those three bases?  I don't think I've ever seen that happen.

Significantly more difficult, but as danger pointed out, not impossible. For those who have a realstic chance, the general hurdle is not skill/potential, it's time line and getting to the required level before time runs out.

Apparently some of the T-1 studs who recently tracked were told that they should expect bombers in their drop. Has anyone else heard anything similar?

That's been the rumor for as long as I've been a FAIP, seen it once and it was a joint spouse setup.

Also a good rumor is that the KC-46 is gonna drop soon (been hearing that one since I was a stud).

 Quick question, and please refrain from the " Jersey jokes". I notice that over the past few years there are very few McGuire C-17 assignments dropped.  I know other bases have more airframes, but I'm just curious why.
