  1. That’s bullshit. Sorry to hear that.
  2. I’m very curious if anyone who wrote these requirements actually knows a damn thing about aviation. Anyone meeting these requirements is gonna be eligible for the R-ATP at 1000 hours, coming out of a university 141 program. They’re gonna go right to a regional, do three years with 1000 turbine PIC and then get picked up at a major. At the same time, our erstwhile “CAIPs” will have just now begun actually instructing in the T-6, while their college bro is an FO at Delta or Southwest or FedEx.
  3. Sorry dude. I was lucky…I got picked up
  4. Geez…Cotton’s been AFGSC/CC less than a year
  5. When I was going through B-52 instructor upgrade, we were “testing” a new syllabus which was shorter by a week so the FTU could produce more classes and instructors per FY. What did they cut? The one week of learning theory and instructor skills…
  6. Maybe less than that since they’re targeting 141 programs. Commercial mins are 190 for Pt 141. CFI does not take long after that. So, could easily be sub-300. 50 hrs of instruction given is MAYBE one month’s experience teaching at some place like UND or ERAU.
  7. This right here is one of the serious cultural flaws we have in the AF. Cannot count how many times I’ve been told “we need to write the OPR/PRF/1206 so the personnel/finance/insert noner AFSC can understand”…bullshit. They need to be educated enough about the REAL mission of the service that when a flyer OPR/PRF gets put in front of them they know what they’re looking at and don’t just go “eh, I don’t understand this so I’m going to give it a poor score”. Maybe if our PME spent more time talking about the real mission and less about the cultural fad of the day we wouldn’t have this problem…but I suppose that’s a pipe dream.
  8. Just like many other recent “retractions”…kinda getting tired, and worried frankly, that POTUS can’t/won’t stay on script. A slip of the tongue at the wrong time could have disastrous global effects.
  9. IGs about to have to start putting up those “take a number, currently serving number 69” things for the flood of complaints about to arrive.
  10. Agreed. I really hope for the sake of the Ukrainian people that this doesn’t turn into a multi year slog ala Afghanistan, but I am absolutely thrilled to see the Russians getting their shit pushed in, and laughing at the absolutely incredible whiff Russian leadership made, both in how they thought the invasion would proceed, and in how they thought NATO would react. Now if somebody would just Operation Valkyrie Putin’s ass…
  11. The system we have has worked for decades, and has produced far and away the best pilots in the world. Willfully giving it up like this is a disgrace.
  12. Does knock it off have a different meaning where you come from?
  13. I really think the Dem’s plan in ‘20 was to run Biden as a front until he either suffered a medical emergency or was declared unfit to serve, and then Kamala would come sweeping in to finish his term, then run for two of her own, effectively keeping her in power for a decade. Now that she’s proven unpopular and incapable, the puppet masters in the DNC are left wondering what to do.
  14. We have always been at war with Eastasia…
