  1. Joke is going to be on them now that any company over 100 employees has a vaccine mandate now. It’s a really dumb hill to die on folks especially people with multiple pages of immunizations and a slew of them being for anthrax. Like really who has seen anthrax besides that Daschle mail thing in like 2002? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I didn’t, but I don’t see why you couldn’t. Traffic may suck getting to RND every morning. I stayed off of 1604 and Bulverde rd, relatively traffic free 20 minute commute, next to the nicest HEB in the area, and a stone throw to all that Stone Oak has to offer Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. IFS has been IFT for years at this point Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. As of right now that waiting game isn’t happening. The MAF FTUs are taking UPT grads within a month of graduation. This was not the case when I went through ~7 years ago. I sat for 6 months between UPT grad and PIQ start. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’m pretty sure it’s mostly the patches. The wing king didn’t ban faip flags. Just made them a Friday thing instead of every day. Idk why it’s a big deal, back in my UPT stud days at DLF nobody could wear pen tabs and faips could only wear faip mafia patches on Friday. Why or when it turned into an every day thing I’m not sure.

  6. It’s probably as fun as flying a C-17 into ORBI with a 100 hr FP Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Nah UPT 2.5 is the future man. Wing them after 6 months in a t-6 then send them to a sim top-off. Honestly it probably would work well if the heavy sim top off wasn’t the POS that is the T-1 sim. Make it in some sort of full motion multi engine jet and it probably would be worthwhile. Too bad the cost per hour of those rivals the op cost of most small jets. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Congrats Jon! Just came by to say that I closed my first mortgage/VA loan going through Jon at Trident and I have to say Trident made the process pretty easy. The whole team was easy to communicate with and I had no issues through the process Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. If I haven’t heard anything does that mean I’m a o-4 select? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. That’s gone. We are back to the traditional 15 class per year system.
  11. Banning the flag isn’t going to magically kill the racism/extremism Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Just came in here to show some support for Rep Kinzinger. Apparently multiple members of his family have come out denouncing him due to him not being down with the Trump cult. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/15/us/politics/adam-kinzinger-republicans-trump.html
  13. It totally should be. They should be able to buy any light twin corporate jet slap a UHF radio in it and call it good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I fly the toner currently and just last week the 19af/cc talked about potentially a partial divestiture with the toner only at CBM and END Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I came here to write that Rep Adam Kinzinger is the first GOP House Member to call for invoking the 25th to remove Trump from office. https://thehill.com/homenews/house/533112-first-gop-lawmaker-calls-for-invoking-25th-amendment-to-remove-trump If you don’t remember that name, you should. I think he has an account here or you might know him as Lt Col Adam Kinzinger, KC-135 pilot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I feel like this has to be someone trolling Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. 400 lbs? Sounds like someone is load planning like TACC these days Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Haha. Yeah. Idk why people think of formal training courses differently than deployments, but most of the rules are the same. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. True Remember that combat time can be logged for the entire sortie that originates/terminates or overflies the combat airspace. So if you overfly Iraq on OTBH-ETAR, Combat time. If you fly OTBH-ORBI-OTBH also all combat time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. What you’re describing there is probably someone who grinds out the week at DLF and then high-tails it to SAT on the weekend, yeah? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I’m a toner dude so we kinda show to brief for the flight (no formal brief). That said being an MWS guy doesn’t really help. Morning local push for us is t/o from 0730-0900, out and backs 0930-1030, then afternoon locals 1400-1500. And you can never ensure you’re on the afternoon consistently. Brief times are all at least 2 hr prior to takeoff Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Sounds terrible. Especially for a UPT IP. In AMC at McGuire I, along with a bunch of other peeps lived in Philly-proper ~1 hr from base. Now I’m a UPT IP and I couldn’t imagine having a 1 hr commute with the amount of show-times that are before 0700. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. That’s right, don’t forget the great crew ratio lowering of late 2015-early 2016 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Rumor mill was that a couple were non-recommended for IFF Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. What’s this guidance you speak of? Where I am wing/cc laid out a couple days ago, 2.5 hrs driving radius for purposes of outdoor rec only. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
