  1. To make O-6. I’m in AFRC and have about 5k people beneath me at a major airline. I can decline any assignment and there are very few assignments I would take. I’m just still having a hell of a lot of fun flying fighters.
  2. Bump..... I waited too long and I'm now staring the "check the container" masters in the face. I want easy and cheap. I don't care how worthless it is as long as mother blue counts it. What are my best options?
  3. Texan, they have extended the FY20 bonus to 31 Dec. Submit normally now.

    Any more bases recently get the approval to concealed carry on base? Anyone have an idea which bases are actually allowing it these days? So far I know of Dyess and Shady-J. Who else? For the record, I just want to be able to leave mine in my truck. How many bases allow that but not carry in buildings?
  5. Anyone here re-fi (or maybe even just finance) a VA loan and now get 6-9 snail mail offers a day on more re-fi with cash options, etc? Anyone know how to stop them?
  6. Most of us Luke guys do, especially since they told us the beacon and the radio may or may not work..... It was also mandatory to fly with one at my last CAF squadron.

    http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/521056_dodd_2016.pdf Saw this was approved on Friday....how long until, or will it, change anything?
  8. Same here. I've heard this from several people but never seen any actual proof this happened. Google reveals nothing either. Until proven otherwise....false. Getting ahold of him is another story....
  9. If you were going to give a friend lessons to get his PPL, what ground school would you all recommend? i'm gonna go do a couple flights w a CFI to get the maneuvers down again, but I don't really have time to teach him ground school from scratch. Obviously I'll recommend SheppardAir for the written test prep, but you've still gotta learn the knowledge...esp for the PPL. King ground schools? Anything else? Also, what have you all used for a syllabus when giving instruction?
  10. Folks are starting to get calls from their leadership....list (should) officially be released tomorrow.
  11. Not that I'm surprised......but I haven't seen anything today. Anyone else?
  12. The line to get a part time guard or reserve job is a mile long at all the Viper units I've talked to. I can't believe they'd give one to the part time guys....especially with the way the airlines are hiring now.
  13. Anyone seen a name publicly released yet?
  14. Wait....so everyone is getting this e-mail? I thought it was just me as I'm an eligible who hasn't taken the bait with 3 weeks to go.
  15. The hater of all things airlines just became an airline expert?

    When my auto policy went up for renewal in March, USAA went up about $50/month (to almost $400/month for 3 cars including a 17 year old) for no reason at all (no accidents). Called Geico, and they were about $130/month cheaper. USAA couldn't match. I hated dumping USAA as we've always had great service, but when Geico's cost was 2/3 of USAA's, switching was a no-brainer.
  17. Send me a PM with your background info, and I'll give you his e-mail. Warning....it's been a few months since anyone I know has been able to get ahold of him. Not 100% sure he is in business still.
  18. I wouldn't limit them to just missileers...more like all shoe clerks in general.
  19. Understandable, given how focused you are on getting that airline job.
  20. Easiest way to match prices is with the Red laser app. Scan the barcode, and it'll show you the price at all the local stores plus online places like Amazon. I've never had an issue getting them to match with that app.
  21. Anyone heard from or used Bob from Boston recently? He's being harder to get ahold of than normal....which is somewhat difficult to begin with. Squadron mate has had zero luck...just checking to see if he's still in business.
