  1. Lots of things are possible, but that doesn’t make them likely. if you end up in fighters, expect to PCS every 3 years +/- 3-6 months … usually on the minus side. You will move more often right after UPT for various training … long TDYs or full PCS’s. AFPC likes to shuffle the manning holes around. if you’re looking to homestead somewhere, consider the guard/reserves
  2. You can always go back if you don’t like your taste of freedom and independence.
  3. Bah! a good ETSS guy could have that place untucked in a week! (if you know … you know)
  4. I miss the flying. I miss the camaraderie (but it’s easy to keep in touch with the bros). I don’t miss the AF
  5. Deltas wholly owned subsidiary, endeavor, has reached an AIP. That’s the 50-60% raises.
  6. Be careful not to step in sidewalk shit. It’s everywhere.
  7. Faking a vax card is not particularly difficult ….
  8. There are movements in the wind to change the way instructor certs are renewed … especially once expired. but I’m sure that’ll move through the FAA at the speed of smell ….
  9. The 1500 hours is an FAA min for an unrestricted ATP. So “airline conversion factors” aren’t a factor in your total for that. But some sim time does count. So get smart on the FAA rules and whether or not the sims you’ve been in count for FAA times. don’t forget your UPT time counts towards your 1500 hours. That’s usually about 200 hours or so. That being said, another 200 hours would be easy to get in a UPT/IFF tour … maybe a viable backup if you can get all your shit in a sock to get to a regional before you officially separate. And it would give you time to better plan your exit. Doing it as a reserve/ang dude would be even better. but would delay your line number a bit vs coa2
  10. Captains, as full fledged CRM ninjas, should be able to fly competently with anyone. That’s the explanation I was given as to why captains don’t get to bid to avoid people. also prolly because their bids get run first … so the FOs are unknown at the time
  11. I remember exactly when many … so many…of my wonderful kinks revealed themselves to me. good times. good times.
  12. And there was drinking and flickerball!
  13. They let flight attendants use KCM … so why not
  14. With some prep you’ll have wonderful airline interview stories …
  15. IIRC, the anthrax vaccine was never really tested against inhalation nor “weaponized” anthrax…. It was developed to counter skin infections in sheep farmers/shearers. So there may be a big question mark over your “protection” But that was a long time ago, and those brain cells have been abused.
  16. We’d do the same with crawfish from Acadiana. Gotta stay a thousand or so few below the freezing level to keep them alive
  17. “Retired reserve” are the key words you need to research. There are caveats to unit manning and other stuff. I can, and has, been done …. But I don’t think it’s blanket approval
