  1. I’d love all the KC-135s to have working lights and crews not be afraid to turn them on over the desert. You are at much higher risk doing lights out ops from your receivers than any ground threat. And if you ever get the chance to brush up on HVA killers...do it. You’ll see that in today’s world. There is very little you can do other than stay waaaaaay away. Push tankers away 100 miles, you just lost 200 miles of fighter range. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  2. I was part of a (now defunct) aero club when I was a LT 18 yrs ago. Just like everything else, the USAF did everything it could to make things difficult, qweep ridden and kill the fun of flying. Go rent a Cessna or get some partners and buy one. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. As a 20+ yr fighter guy, I’ve learned more reading this thread than at any academic session or training on how MAF works Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app

  6. Can someone help me with airline pay math. I hear stories about the pay beating down USAF badly but there must be something I’m missing. Let’s take a 5th yr Southwest airline F.O. Making $150 an hour. At 75hrs per month that’s only $147,600 per year. I make more than that without a bonus. Do pilots generally fly more, is there hidden pay etc?

  7. Dude. Listen to yourself. Article 15 for not wearing a mask? “Yes Major ###, your career is done because you didn’t wear a mask thus putting yourself at a .0008% risk of being unable to accomplish the mission.” Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. As of 9 April that’s alllll true, RPAs are at 50% though!! Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  9. How many vacation and sick days does an airline pilot get per year? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. Me too. Another thing funny to me is he many people I’ve worked with who are staunchly anti-abortion but don’t even shrug when they drop a bomb or strafe “bad guys” Because the bad guy doesn’t subjectively share their religious views...never mind his wife and 3 kids were just orphaned and he was just in the wrong place/wrong time.

  11. This is a stupid Bodn argument. If we found a blade of grass in the universe it’d be life. This is a subjective moral dilemma. I ask my religious friends where in the Bible it talks about abortion...the conversation goes off the subjective rails from there. Not all life has value and value is a subjective opinion.

  12. Anyone know the company name of those contractors? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. White jets get a bad rap for no good reason. After ~20 yrs of flying jets all over the spectrum in awesome places, my 3yr punishment tour at Laughlin was a great time when on paper it is ha far the worst jet and location of my career. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. Are any pilots at UPT contractors yet? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. Delta hiring, AA hiring, Cargo never stopped hiring...I shouldn’t be looking fwd so much to the FY21 ACP numbers but I am. At this rate the USAF should try to screw up the bonus and see if by luck they get it correct. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
