Eh, whatever beer fine payments are available in the fridge. My fav beer is "Free", my second favorite is "Free Light". And who doesn't love Pappy? As to @Treetop Flyer 's comments, that sucks and I remember similar types of folks from my SNA time. I think every squadron is a bit different and the quality/variation of instruction background is pretty good these days. We had/have tacair types from Blue and Green, AD and Reserves. I actively encourage my students to put in for Tailhook if it's their desire and they have the grades, and I do the best I can to relate Carrier Air Wing fleet life to them from my 150' perspective. If anything, I make fun of the VP dudes. Realistically, we've been told, most VFA/VAQ types won't get a VT(P) slot due to the demand elsewhere for their skill sets in shore tours. It is what it is.
