Let’s see, what’s happened since Memorial Day? At "work," my classmates and I flew Tactical Intercepts (TI), Air Combat Maneuvering (ACM), Air Combat Tactics (ACT). This week we moved on to the air-to-ground phase and have accomplised Basic Surface Attack (BSA) and a Surface Attack Tactics (SAT) flights. That leaves Night Surface Attack Tactics and Close Air Support (CAS). Then we have to re-learn the GE engine, clean up the random simulator or so, and go on our merry ways.
I’ve personally flown every business day for the past week. It’s great, but it certainly doesn’t leave much time for anything else. The problem is, that pile of ‘anything else’ never seems to get smaller.
