  1. The 60M fixes almost everything I screw up. The flight director may be the greatest invention ever. You'll definitely appreciate it in instruments. Congrats on getting the best aircraft in the inventory!
  2. Don't know a unit yet. From my "research", I'd guess 2-25 since I'm a Blackhawk guy.
  3. Has anyone been stationed in Hawaii? Where's the best place to live? Any tips or pointers would be great! Thanks in advance!
  4. Thanks for the info. I guess i'll just wait and see.
  5. When did you guys get you verbals on assignments? We're done with A/L, and into the M course, and haven't gotten anything yet. Thanks in advance!
  6. You don't lose your leave, it carries over. Until last year you could sell your leave after the transition, but that's no longer allowed. I didn't receive any kind of pay for almost 4 months, and sold something like 45 days to pay the bills. Everybody after my group of transitions has been forced to buy back any leave they sold. The only time officers (warrant or comissioned) are allowed to sell leave is if they are leaving active service through OSB or ETS. YOU WILL ALSO TAKE A PAY CUT. The rumor mill and even some guys at DFAS will talk about "Save Pay". It does not exist. You'll pick up W2 3-4 months after you get here, and then randomly get a back pay check that includes the difference in pay between w1&w2 for the few month you were a W2.
  7. I'm starting the 60 course here in the next few weeks, and I heard that the single fold knee board I used in primary isn't going to cut it. What do you guys recommend as a replacement? Thanks in advance.
  8. I had to read this twice to make sure I wasn't being accused!
  9. I UQR'd on 7 March and reappointed as a W1 on 8 Marchwith a report date to Rucker of 18 March last year.
  10. For the active guys the only two classes are ALSE and High Altitude trainer. Other than that, you'll get shut down.
  11. I was an ordnance CPT, and can tell you that Mr. Cooper was a huge asset in the transfer process. He's done it for a few guys, and in the end he helped me a ton when I couldn't get ahold of Ms. Nollett from HRC. He won't hold your hand, but he'll point you in the right direction.
  12. A direct energy weapon? You can't be serious. There are multiple aviation units in and around Houston, including a national guard unit in Conroe. In all likelihood, it's one of theirs. HPD flies around there too. C'mon man...a direct energy weapon?!
