  1. Bros, I am a 135 co wondering if there is any gouge out there for a planner role or some type of orders longer than a month to England, Germany… or anywhere really. With the rainbow gone, the Deid drying up, and LTMPA slots being inconsistent, I want to know what else is out there for tanker bums to take advantage of. I know if there’s anything out there… it’s probably for an IP, but will settle for an AC, with the final saying being “nobody wants a co”. Thanks in advance.

  2. I am a commuter about 9 hrs away…. Which I would not recommend to young guys fresh out of UPT. 3 hrs sounds very doable. For commuters at my unit, if I show up for anything, anything at all, I am expected to get a room. AFTPs, drills, orders. There isn’t any base lodging at my location so whenever I’m on order (not AFTPs or UTAs), I get lodging and per diem. Other units might work different deals and overall experiences vary.

  5. If you went to the army fix wing course, you can get hired as a rated guy for heavys and go direct to a transition course. Say u got hired by a tanker guard unit, after going thru the ARB with NGB you would go direct to Altus. There was a bro at my PIQ class in Altus. He flew CH46s for the marines. Only fix wing time to his name was from T6s at UPT… back when it was joint course with USAF navy and USMC… after 1500 hrs in the 46s he went direct to Altus for a transition course. So u could do it too. Good luck! Ur in a better spot than I was. Even with 1500 hrs of 47 but no fix wing time I had to compete like an off the street guy and attend the full UPT. It was a blast.

  6. I’m tired of all the damn cartoon sketches. We can’t we get the media in there like the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. Curious to hear if your tanker location has a big influence on why you want to leave the tank. Or perhaps the people running the place making young co’s hate life. I get it’s an old platform… and sometimes I feel like I am having to use smoke signals to talk to tower vs what the other bros in newer jets have to play with. But overall I like the tank… I am at a chill location with a bunch good bros and gals to fly with. For sure don’t stop being a good bro… and continue to do your best to progress in the jet. I’ve seen plenty of dudes kinda stall out cus they have a chip on their shoulders about not getting the platform they wanted. Don’t let that be you. Stay motivated to progress with what you have while you attack all other options available. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. Damn… is this program to blame for why leadership at the Deid Sucks? Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  9. Troll alert… what’s the alternative?? Eat shit at the regionals?? UPT hopefuls: keep chasing the dream bros! Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. We can now wear regular multicam hats with our multicams... which is pissing the hell out the army guys having to wear the regular standard issue one.
  11. What is his definition of "taking control"? I have an army bro flying 47s evacuating people in and out. They were handed grenades at one point because the plan was for them to finish evacuating people, throw a grenade in the cockpit of the helo, and run to jump on the last fix wing punching out. Great strategy... not sure if its going work out.
  12. Could not agree more. Specially when they are walking around focusing on useless "60 day stand downs" that do nothing... or telling the troops that the biggest threat out there is climate change... what a joke. I hope they don't think their job is secured because its "someone else's fault".
