  1. My fear as well... it'll be sold as a replacement, then we'll end up with a national sales tax AND an income tax.
  2. Eh, 2-3 years may be plenty of time to get the PIC hours for an airline. Then when they try to give you a worse assignment, you bounce for the airlines.
  3. Now that Jenner is opposing Newsome for the governor of California...she's out of the LGBT club.
  4. Nothing prevents you from requesting it...it's just not going to get approved. Typically you can get 6 months approved and not much more. Guess we'll see if the manning is healthy enough to start approving people farther out.
  5. Which was a more local government than the federalized troops who ensured desegregation. After the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the students. Not exactly a case of the locals fixing a problem.
  6. It wasn't lower levels of society that escorted those black girls to school in Arkansas...
  7. Fingers crossed, because Gaetz is a clown.
  8. SERE is about 3 weeks. It's not tailored for navs.
  9. Just lower the standards until you get enough pilots. https://www.realcleardefense.com/articles/2021/04/27/the_air_force_is_about_to_lower_its_already_low_standards_774596.html
  10. Water survival is not SERE. Still done at Fairchild. The Navy has an altitude chamber at Pensacola, but it's been 15 years since I went through the training, so I don't know if the Air Force still uses the Navy one or if they send you somewhere else.
  11. She was fired from Dyess. The problem was found on an Ellsworth jet. So I doubt that was it.
  12. You are not required to accept continuation. Others on this board have used that fact after being passed over to get out of their pilot ADSCs. The GI Bill one may be more tricky...they can't force you to take continuation, but they may take back your transfer and not allow your dependents to use it.
  13. Maybe...but we don't generally relieve flying squadron commanders after a "pilot error" Class A mishap. There's gotta be more to the story than a single iPad ingested by an engine off-station.
  14. Oof. So they relieved a commander because some crew chief left their iPad in the inlet and the aircrew didn't spot it on the walk around?
  15. I can confirm his stuff is awesome. Just phenomenonal quality for the price. Framed four together as part of a revitalization project for the ROTC detachment where I teach.
  16. I love how she says "I don't know what a curfew means"...then proceeds to tell the crowd what a curfew means. And how she encouraged the rest of the crowd to break the curfew...then went home before the curfew kicked in. I'm cynical enough to think she wants the cops to arrest protestors to continue to fuel her race-baiting politics.
  17. We gotta be even more careful with our money. Our bonus options aren't as good as the pilots.
  18. Because if you have a basic grasp of statistics, you can see what the data says.
  19. Until we start forcing people to take the vaccine at gunpoint...yeah, let's keep vaccines that save more lives than they take available to the public. Not to mention pulling a vaccine due to six total cases of adverse reactions inspires a whole new level of fear in medical science.
  20. I don't know if I could give you an exact number for my threshold...but it's definitely above the number that halted the J&J and AstraZeneca vaccines. As an entering argument, I'd say if the vaccine has an adverse reaction rate lower than the fatality rate of the disease it protects against, that's probably a net win.
  21. Over 6 people in millions. We'd halt all airline travel if we applied the same safety standards.
  22. They won't be 160 IQ individuals...police departments have actually fought lawsuits so that they don't have to hire people who are "too smart".
