  1. What's a PPL run these days? $15K? Plus the free time to fly and study? In addition to participating in organized athletics (which also involves time and cost). That's a huge hurdle to overcome to increase your chances, especially if you're trying to remain competitive in other selection factors (grades, athletics, community service). That being said, the AF is trying to help bring more people who may not be able to afford a PPL into the selection pool (including minorities/women) with scholarships for PPLs: https://www.airuniversity.af.edu/Holm-Center/AFJROTC/Flight-Academy/ Plus, gener

  2. Now that Mazepin has made a fool of himself 2 days in a row, can we get this punk out of there? Too bad Comrade Gene Hass needs the money he's gstting from his Mazepin's dad. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app

  3. GD he has a punchable face. And “doughy moron” for a guy that’s ran 2 MAJCOM’s and had the audacity to say that getting a PPL is an indicator of having a more advantaged upbringing? What a moron. *White privilege trigger warning* I understand the SJW type initiatives if that’s what the people you’re trying to recruit are thinking about now. But recruiting to fly for the services had never been an issue. With that luxury, why not stack the deck to get the best candidates*? I’m also not ignorant to the fact that there are probably some diamonds in the rough out there (look at WW2 fight

  4. Surprised that no one has pointed out to this crowd that in addition to getting an USAFA appointment, UPT slot, T-38 track, Raptor assignment, and admission to Harvard, his wife is a smoking hot fitness model/actress/influencer or some shit from Australia. I'm sympathetic to his concerns, but yeah.....hard to feel sorry for this guy.

  5. The majority of people and groups are trying to implement changes for the sake of being able to say they have done 'something'. Another large group of people are just parroting the first group because it's easier than making their own decisions. The dumb leading the lazy.

  9. I’ve got apps in at both the fighter squadrons, nothing yet. I keep checking my email like a mad man for the 194th though haha. They said either an April or May board with interview notifications going out two weeks prior. So it could easily be mid to late April for the 194th if they in fact run a May board. I wouldn’t expect anything from the 122nd yet since their deadline isn’t until May 15th.

  11. There are certainly instances of this... there always will be. But by and large, I didn’t see it during my T-38 FAIP days. Most pilots that got cut in -38s were for single-ship things. We had one in my class and he ended up being an F-4 WSO. It’s been a long time but the ones I remember were mainly T-38 Contact washouts. But it didn’t happen much: we lost 21 people in my UPT class and only the one guy was in the T-38. I do recall one in another Flight that was washed out on his Nav check. I kid you not. Late in the Formation phase, we got notified if we were going to the F

  13. Well, it's not like a lot of people are listening to experts anyway. Fauci said schools should be the last things to close and first things to open, and the CDC recently announced that 3 feet away was good enough, no need for 6 feet of separation for anyone under 18. Yet schools in NYC and LA are still closed. Follow the science indeed.

  14. Love those riffs... Being a leftist wealth distribution spokesman has yielded Tom Morello a net worth of $30M (according to a quick search of the interwebs) thanks to capitalism and free speech. Let the irony flow through you.

  16. “Some of those that work forces, are the same that burn crosses” Referring to police as KKK members seems pretty obviously “left”. Honestly the song is 30 years old...you’re just finding this out now

  17. That's disappointed. Duckworth has generally seemed reasonable. And I loved when she lot into the guy that hurt himself playing military prep school football for claiming "disabled veteran" status with his business. So I'm disappointed to see her being part of that kind of bullshit. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app

  18. Just emailed AFPC yesterday with the same question; they said assignments are being loaded now, should be flowing in the system NLT mid next week. Picture is fr the UFT board page on the rated assignments portal.

  19. We've already entered a single aircraft UPT world right now with UPT 2.5 By 2025 all the T-1s will (might) be retired and it doesn't seem like the money is there to buy enough T-7s to replace the T-38 in UPT. But if money it no object, I'd prefer UPT maintain a dual track pipeline where future fighter pilots can work on fighter pilot stuff and mobility pilots can practice copying ATIS.

  21. If you’re a T-1 stud: 69% chance of a C-17 then rest is 1-2 AFSOC, couple wide body ISR, rest tankers. If you’re a T-38 stud with a pulse (even if it’s faint) probably a Viper but 33.3% repeating chance of a 5th gen; the other 1-3 studs will get a bomber. If you’re at Laughlin, 87% chance you get FAIPd. Better yet, if you’re at Vance or Columbus...you could FAIP to XL!

But seriously...yes, it is important for the same reason that it is important that my daughters can look at female astronauts, the Vice President, and other women in any career field and imagine themselves in that position.

  25. Sometime around November/December 2022 is when I anticipate you'll see the formal transfer of power. Post mid-term elections. Ol' Joe will probably experience "a fall," or some other mundane injury that'll put him in the hospital for a week or two. They'll invoke the 25th amendment, and Harris will be "temporarily" in charge. Joe will emerge from the hospital after a couple weeks, but it will be revealed that he's suffered "something" (a blood clot, a minor stroke, a minor heart attack, etc) that prevents him from continuing to serve. At that point, the Presidency will formally transfer t

  26. China Joe's pandering to identity groups was just his playbook, and helped to get him elected. Disgusting, but that's his party. The horrifying thing about his prerecorded speech was that he had one of his mental breakdowns during the speech. He gets off the teleprompter, starts to try and thank SECDEF, but not only can poor pathetic Joe not remember the Secretary's name, he can't even remember where 'that guy over there' works. This man is NOT President. There is clearly a reason he never gives press conferences any more. Harris has gone beyond just measuring the Oval
