The End of the World As the USAF Knows It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first three enlisted pilots for UAS graduated from school.  Now they are flying million dollar UAS.  I wonder when Congress will ask the question why the USAF needs commissioned pilots to fly million dollar airplanes.  I suspect the reason they only use their first names is to protect them from the fighter pilot mafia.

    One can be sure the highly progressive Air Force will be posting “Officers Only” and “Enlisted Only” signs by the water fountains and dining facilities. When will the horror end?

    When exactly did the air force forget about young men like this? Who by the way, built the air force we know today. http://worldwarwings.com/this-is-the-youngest-pilot-of-world-war-ii-plus-he-had-an-impressive-record/

    To be honest, the pilots they have flying the UAVs in that air conditioned set in Vegas are all on current flight status. The Air Force talks about losing a tremendous amount of pilots, but the moment they can’t remain on flight status the pilot community sends them to a med-board. Pretty sure it would be more efficient to keep the healthy ones in the air and sending the broken ones to pilot UAS.
