Flight Lead (3/4)



  1. It all depends and there are a lot of variables just like everything else. There are minimum and maximum seasoning days allotted per course. This year, the various continuing resolutions made a mess of things. The guard bureau gave out 66% of the minimum this year. With that said, the program is a “wing commander managed” program. They can direct the comptroller or FDO is prioritize different groups in the wing. There are wings out there that burned through days at the beginning of the year thinking they’d eventually (once a budget was passed) get 100% of the days only to find out the NGB only sent 66% and no more. Some folks returning from school will not get any days because of this.
  2. You need to get out more. We are all products of our life’s experiences. My personal views are shaped by a few things. I did get my daughter’s mom pregnant when we were dating. She considered getting an abortion. I was living through the worst part of my life when that happened. Raising her was really hard in the beginning and it took a lot of sacrifices. We got through it. She’s 23 and is the light of my life. I dated a girl once who had an abortion before she met me. She was emotionally ruined by the experience. She regretted that decision to her core. My buddy and his wife had their daughter at 24 weeks. His wife had preeclampsia. Their daughter turns 7 this weekend. She’s a happy and healthy child. The medical community is making incredible progress towards helping women with medical issues while they are pregnant. There are answers to problems we encounter in life whether they are self induced or not. I don’t believe killing our children is the answer.
  3. That is hands down the most evil, sick and twisted description of a mother carrying her own child I have ever read. And it is exactly why the pro-life side should, and I believe will win in the end. This type of thinking is how you justify aborting babies up to the moment of birth.
  4. The level of intellectual dishonesty shown by the pro-abortion crowd is astounding. It’s the most frustrating part of the whole argument. You all know damn well that life begins at conception. After conception, life is just a series of periods of growth and development followed by decline and death. It’s a simple circle of life. You just won’t say you understand that out loud. Instead, you all come up with endless endless endless arguments about why you are for abortion as a distraction from the truth. Just admit that you’re pro-self and that a baby will interrupt your life, finances, work, goals, etc. I’d have a whole lot more respect for you and your argument if you were just truthful about your reasoning.
  5. Downgrades establish unit trends. Trends can be sourced from flight evals, testing, instructor meetings, aircrew feedback, etc. Units should tailor training to “close” trends once the training has been completed. Flight supplement evals and ground supplement evals are used to randomly gauge the unit members knowledge of open trends. These flight/ground supp evals are recorded for trend closure but don’t list the members name specifically that was given the supp eval. They are just a random snapshot to see if the training has been sufficient to close the trend. Trends are closed twice a year and are recorded via the Stan Eval Board (SEB). Downgrades on a Form 8 don’t matter for the individual (other than pride). The overall grade matters. Downgrades are key to the unit’s trends program and are actually vital to identifying bigger picture issues in the different communities.
  6. Greetings all. We are in the process of converting to the C-130J. We have a few part time slots available for the right people if they are interested in making the move. Current loadmasters on any airframe are preferred but we can consider taking someone off the street as well. Applicants must live locally or are actively arranging to move to the metroplex. This is a fantastic area with endless civilian employment opportunities. Lockheed is across the runway, Southwest and American are headquartered here as well. This is a great unit with plenty of interesting trips/travel. Shoot me a PM if interested.
  7. I had 2200 hours on E model Hercs. They ranged from 61-2358 to various 64 models. I have time on 62-1787 which was the most decorated and easily has one of the most harrowing stories ever involving a C-130. It’s now on display at the AF Museum. https://www.troopcarrier.org/spare617.html
  8. Add the school board members who were recalled and thrown out in San Francisco to the list.
  9. Bigger picture. The vast majority of people are done with the narratives, elitists, hypocrisy, etc. We know this because of the following. I’m sure I’ve missed some. Virginia elections Freedom convoy Joe Rogan winning CNN self destructing Lockdowns ending and clearly tied to upcoming elections Dem infighting Supreme Court Justice retiring early The crazy left is imploding. I hope and pray the pendulum is swinging back to some sort of normalcy. The midterms will be very very interesting.
  10. At a minimum, it’ll be 3 years before anything close to this happens.
  11. The answer will be filled with “the soft bigotry of low expectations”.
  12. This conversation should be near the end. Nothing has worked to prevent the spread. Not the vaccines, not the masks, not the closures, not the social distancing, not the bazillion dollars spent, not the fear tactics. Not anything. It’s here to stay and we will all get it. People shouldn’t lose their jobs over it and we shouldn’t divide the country any further.
