DD-214 in hand and I'm gonna party like it's 1998
Hey, the hooky took had a small deck footprint! Perfect fit for the super hornet/V-22 air wing.
100000% this. I hate aileron rolls.save the aileron roll for last
This was basically me, minus them trying to track me down. I basically flew straight and level at 150 KIAS the entire time and enjoyed the view over the coast. They were a little puzzled when my time was 1.8Bad technique for your aero solo- setting max endurance in the MOA until you hit xx fuel, staying up for so long that your line in TIMS schedule executor changes color and the tower ODO calls the squadron ODO because you're overdue on their tracking too.
Nicely done! More turbine PIC time for you!This was basically me, minus them trying to track me down. I basically flew straight and level at 150 KIAS the entire time and enjoyed the view over the coast. They were a little puzzled when my time was 1.8
Congrats on finishing primary. The most important question is where are you going next?
I'm part of the 42% !Congratulations @Birdbrain!
Even now that I fly in the world of puny LSA's and extra-slow aircraft the things you mention are important. Keep the mindset you have not just through advanced...but throughout your entire flying career.
What did you select? And, @Meyerkord (you frigate lovin' Corpus kid) where are you headed? (and please tell me you were a "Boomer," not one of those new-age "Ranger" guys).
So much this. It took me a while to figure out the "how" on this, but I also found that once I figured out how to keep my point of reference through the roll, it helped me immensely, especially when studs were doing the rolling. It's kind of like how a figure skater does spins, their head isn't spinning like their body is, it's finding the same reference point as the body turns.Technique for pukers- save the aileron roll for last.
For what it's worth, I felt passive plenty of times in the T-6 (and puked a bunch as an NFO in primary), but haven't had the same issues in the T-45.After see how much better it made me, I'm gunna be in that chair every weekday I'm not in the plane for the foreseeable future.
I won't say the jets is off the list but I think im coming to see some of what you alluded too. Like OP said the grades aren't my concern anymore and I'm just in it for the ride.
I've have heard that the T6 just has a way of making people sick compared to most other aircraft in the Navy.For what it's worth, I felt passive plenty of times in the T-6 (and puked a bunch as an NFO in primary), but haven't had the same issues in the T-45.
