  1. Might as well move the board location to Nellis.
  2. A glowing review, complete with a prediction of a fast changing automotive industry, 6 outta 10. This man EPRs.
  3. My popcorn is getting cold. 🙂
  4. Private insurance nearly broke me, it was equivalent to BC/BS, when I got seriously ill as an ART. Get the TRICARE for life, worry less. Oh yeah, you should also have $1M on your cranium in life insurance, unless you can self insure that. And only use term.
  5. I want regular updates from UPT from this kid.
  6. Do ya? I'm OK if true but there is so much back and forth. As soon as I heard a politician say, "The science is settled" I was immediately suspect.
  7. It’s a bunch of bullshit, they put her up because you’re not “supposed” to criticize her due to her age/gender/disability, oldest trick in the book. It’s slimy, even worse when you look her parents up, she is being played like a puppet. Play adult games get adult results.
  8. I had it blow up 1 time, it took OG approval. The SQ/DO was sitting top 3 and cancelled us at step.

  10. You’ve confused me and I congratulate you for it, I thought I’ve heard it all. Are you AFROTC or searching for a reserve slot? Is this a program inside ROTC where you can cross commission if picked up by a unit? Or are you trying to hedge your bets with both?
  11. I’ll feed the troll, it’s both. From a CAF perspective we have already seen what cutting the F-16 B course syllabus does to the CAF units, they call and bitch about the new graduates ability, some even FEB’d. When these students hit the non-UPT world, they are going to be thrown to the wolves. Lacking proficiency in the basics? Wash out of IFF or the B course. Somehow get to a CAF unit and do something dangerous? Have fun in your FEB. It isn’t these students fault they are part of this “experiment” but the bro’s aren’t going to let them kill anybody much less themselves. It simply isn’t the CAF’s (or any combat unit) responsibility to teach what UPTN is skipping or leaving out. There will be some success stories I’m sure, but some students will be a joke. I give this another few years before the USAF is on to some other “good” idea. The CAF isn’t going to lower their standards because AETC did, the whole thing is a bad idea.
  12. I don’t think you’re hearing me.
  13. There are no ANG white jet instructors. An ANG member can transfer to the reserves to fly trainers, I’ve seen dudes do it.
  14. Say it with me, single seat, single engine is the only way to fly.
  15. Bingo! This crap is being pushed on Reddit pretty hard, people are buying it. Utter bullshit.
  16. Those machines USED to be in every fighter squadron, all given away in the mid 2000’s. We discovered they were injuring our necks worse than the jet.
  17. It’s the blind leading the blind around here. Reserve T-38s are for instructors in the 340th, spread around all the UPT bases and Randolph. You (most generally) already are established in a major weapons system before you become an instructor in this unit. I’ve heard of a very few (maybe 1) person getting hired with no experience to join the 340th. Once in UPT you will be taught by these reserve Instructors when they are available but usually taught by active duty folks, there are way more of them. The exception to all of this is the reserve T-38 red air bubbas, but they are not in the 340th. Clear as mud? edit: the 340th also has T6 and T1 instructors.
  18. He cares, he also bleeds blue so what do you expect? I knew him at DLF, straight shooter but definitely the party line.
  19. Try for the waiver, but they are going to ask what is preventing your condition from coming back tomorrow. I’m guessing nothing is preventing it so the answer will still be the same.
  20. So this directly effects me and some of my friends. I was diagnosed 4 years ago thus my unplanned retirement. I hope this really isnt a "thing" but the trend is alarming. https://www.sacbee.com/news/nation-world/national/article234008952.html Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  21. That’s a trick the AF uses to show manning better than it is, it’s on purpose.
  22. RPAs are about as sexy as the old fat grandma in the mumu at WallMart. It wouldn't have worked. Sorry for calling out your female demographic Huggy.... Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
