  1. What I meant “from home station” —- your home unit will get you scheduled and out the door for the required training. It’s not lumped into the UCT syllabi. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. For a nav you will be about 185 days. The actual training length is slightly less but you have about a week on either end to in/out-process. Chamber will be coordinated by your home station before you come. Expect C-Springs for the chamber, the Navy decommissioned theirs a few years ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. UCT isn’t a year. Depending on the airframe it can be 185 days or 285 days. Same goes for the FTU. You will have to go to the chamber and water survival before heading to UCT which is something like 4 days each (don’t know exactly). For Guard you will do that from home station.

  4. Threw this in to the google and no returns. Details? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. If I take the bonus this year ($15k) and it jumps next year can I renegotiate or am I stuck with the current amount? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I guess my real issue is the fact we’ve been using it for years. I can’t say I’ve ever heard an aircrew getting violated or any course deviation issues (other than the occasional RAIM fail). Now all of a sudden it’s not safe or acceptable? I know that there are some additional steps we have to take like manually checking and setting it up, but it’s really like five step. Not the 2 page checklist we had in the C17. I don’t agree with the change, if anything I trust it more than I trust flying a VOR approach in the Texan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Can’t even use GPS for lateral navigation outside the FAF in the T-6 now. Let alone down to LPV minimums. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Great idea. I think every base has a lake nearby. Easy way to decompress from the stress. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Well I’m going for it as long as we can work out my wife’s situation. She’s at 20 and is going through an MEB. It was supposed to be done next month but they messed up some of her tests so it’s delayed a couple months. Currently working through leadership on both sides to see what we can do to either PCS her or speed up her process. Problem number one is her paperwork is with the MEB and we all know how quickly they work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yes they do. Below is Germany’s numbers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I will self proclaim I’m not too savvy on the economics side of the country. So what solutions does Japan have? How is military retirement adjusted for inflation? Are we going to ever get to a point where the military retirement pay isn’t worth the personal investment? Just thinking here.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. So I’ve been debating with a buddy about this theory.... I am weary as to whether the US government will be able to pay the military retirement in the next 30-40 years. My concerns are led by the fact our debt is growing drastically and we continue to pass bills which we can’t pay. Numbers Govt tax revenue / spending 2021-3.86T / 4.83T (not counting the two multiple trillion dollar bills) 2020-3.71T / 6.16T 2019-3.46T / 4.448T 2018-3.33T / 4.09T We keep printing money and spending out of control. At what point do we start cutting spending in some way or form and what takes the hit? He thin
  13. To my understanding the rudder was changed years ago because it had too much authority and caused a tail to fall off at some point. At least that’s what I remember my CC saying on Friday, I was a few beers in though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
