  1. Phoenix Reach is AMC’s cross flow program for Captains. It’s typically tanker-airlift or airlift-tanker. People will also flow to different airframes following airframe divestiture (C-130H several years ago, and KC-10 in the future). It’s not as common at the Sq/CC level, but many OGs and WG/CCs are given command of units that operate a plane they didn’t previously fly (which doesn’t always go so well, see Dyess AFB).

  2. Don’t worry about it. You’ll have the hours for an ATP (or, worst case, R-ATP if you track fighters) before your commitment is up. The freebie commercial used to be worth something. After the Colgan legislation, it isn’t. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. They all are. Even my car’s HUD. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I got a free motley fool account from Amex. So far the best performing recommendation I acted on has lost 17%, and it was the source of all toxic masculinity: Activision [emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. R-ATP might be good enough. APC lists Alaska as 1200 in high-performance military aircraft. If not, regionals would not be a bad option given their recent pay increases (not just limited to AA RJs, Mesa increased theirs, and I thought I saw something about Horizon too). Edit to add: Is that 1300 counting your UPT time? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Navs behaving badly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Flight pay and the bonus aren’t subject to Social Security. I imagine the same is true for all bonuses. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I recall at one point Citi had placed restrictions on their cards for certain gun purchases. I was hoping to use that as an excuse to not use my GTC since the government was now forcing us to sign a contract with a politically-partisan company. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Same is true if you keel over the day after buying life insurance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Emergency power/hydraulics from a RAT come at the expense of increased drag. Extend your range on the other hand? Are you unfamiliar with the concept of conservation of energy? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Great comment here, maybe at cruise we can use two props on the 130 as generators to power the other two! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I was amused when I realized that as an O-4 with flight pay and a bonus I was making more than the nonner O-6s and below that caused me the greatest headaches. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. “We need a more modern way to be able to assess” housing and subsistence allowances and cost-of-living adjustments, she said Easy: quarterly base pay, flight pay, and BAS adjustments automatically tied to inflation. Realistic BAH reviews (maybe not on a quarterly basis, since this would require more manpower) that actually look at the available housing market and exclude developments/apartments the Wing King wouldn’t let his kid live in. I understand this would make budgeting incredibly difficult, but it would be a drop in the bucket compared to the nonsense programs Congress funds on what seems to be a daily basis.
