SNAP (1/4)



  1. I’m an ignorant slut, apologies all! Most of these assignments are going to want an experienced AC or IP right? Upgrades seem realllll slow in my neck of the woods, trying to figure out where i might be able to go to actually get some seat time down the road
  2. hey y’all! heard some rumint the other day supposedly from afpc via a sq/cc via another co in my community, wondering if there’s any merit to it and if anyone has heard anything similar. I’m told that every pilot must, within their first ten years, go do a white jet tour or instruct at the ftu. who’s got the gouge?
  3. Wing responded on facebook - appears to defend the OG : https://www.facebook.com/552acw/posts/4418864084820167 Heres the text America’s Wing, Recently there have been multiple posts regarding toxic leadership and allegations of a lack of safety culture in the 552 ACW. I would like to address these two topics briefly and reset some expectations: Toxic Leadership: There is a difference between toxic leadership and intrusive leadership that holds people accountable. Toxic leaders don’t care about their subordinates, they only care about themselves. Toxic leaders don’t care if the organization fails, as long as there isn’t a perception that they failed. Toxic leaders berate, belittle, and demean teammates to accomplish their purposes. These are NOT the leaders in the 552! Our leaders are concerned about our Airmen, they are concerned about your resources, the quality of your life, the productiveness of your training, safe practices, risk management, and your individual contribution to the success of our wing’s mission. They will hold you accountable for decisions in a teaching way that encourages sound decision making practices and leadership qualities. Sometimes they will be disappointed by decisions…this is because they care. That is not toxicity. Safety Culture: I want it to be clear that safety is a driving factor in the execution of our worldwide mission every day and the procedures we have in place to triple check ourselves back up this assertion. Additional to safety processes, we have feedback mechanisms to help leaders understand the level of risks being accepted in the execution of our duties. At times, safety and risk will collide and generate great opportunities for learning and growth at all echelons of leadership. Safety is still paramount. This has not changed nor will it change during my tenure. Please continue to upchannel any concerns to your leadership. There is not a commander in the 552 that isn’t interested in making things better. We are here, we trust you, and we want to hear your thoughts and concerns!! Tomorrow morning at 0730 CST in Fannin Hall will be a flight-crew (Pilot’s, Navigators, and Flight Engineers) all call. If you are not on crew rest or engaged in a previous appointment, I would like to see you there. Thank you for an outstanding week of training hard!!! It is an honor to lead with you!! Hitch

Thoughts?
  6. Current UPT stud, finished T6s with 74 hours, prog’d for 60 some odd total hours in T1s. I probably had 6-7 more hours in T6 land than most of my T1 bound classmates because of some unfortunate weather related BIT rides, 38 dudes had more rides for form stuff. Not sure how many sim hours we’ve gotten but also not sure how much those hours are really worth

FAIPs are saying it’s gonna be fire. Last drop of FY20 scheduled to be Aug 20 for classes 20-22/23
  12. had the same problem in T6s, solution for me was to pick an out base that was a bit of a cruise to get to.. gave me time to really just focus on trimming hands off and getting a better feel for the jet. also make sure you’re not using more than a few fingers on the stick
