    New aircrew badge announcement made at 22 Wing North Bay

    Oh no! I've finally be recognized!  I guess my 12 years of being aircrew is totally invalidated because I successfully applied for UTPNCM and have a super low rank because of promotion policy.  Makes sense.

    New aircrew badge announcement made at 22 Wing North Bay

    Wow! good job on finding an old out of date document.  The errors included are numerous.  FREE ADVICE: If somebody is quoting CFAOs, read carefully, it's probably wildly out of date like this one is.

    New aircrew badge announcement made at 22 Wing North Bay

    The term "Aircrew" refers to those with an aircrew medical category.  Aerospace Control trades are aircrew and are subject to the same restrictions that the rest of the flying community like crew rest and alcohol consumption.  It's not like Flight Steward/Attendant or Door Gunner that are manned...

    UTPNCM entitled to a full posting

    I have met a few pilot OJTs along various phases of flight training and nobody i know got a full posting until they got their wings at the end of phase 3.  The courses are not long enough to warrant a posting and a move.

    UTPNCM entitled to a full posting

    I'm also in UTPNCM, and i assumed i would be on prohibited posting between university and occupational training which is why i picked a university that is co-located with my occupational training so i would not endure the separation from my family after university.  In all my research i did not...

    CAN FORCE ONE grounded in hangar accident

    Why yes it is, This is in fact the silliest thread ever. They will, and probably have just moved on to tail #2 and filled it up with the VIP layout.  It probably took them the rest of the day to configure the plane.  Yippie do da

    All Things Air Defence/AA (merged)

    Thank you kindly TACCO, examples are always helpful.  AD Regts do technically fall under Army history and they don't teach very much of that to the Air Force. Would it be fair to say that all three, Short, Medium and Long range AD assets would be beneficial for the CAF in the event of conflict...

    All Things Air Defence/AA (merged)

    Well, I'm going to be the radical opinion in this thread but here i go. The army doesn't need an ADATS/GBAD/MMEV.  They already have an Anti take system, it's called the tank. It is not the job of the Army to fight the battle in the air, that's what the Air Force is for. Counter-Proposal...

    Reserve Friendly Jobs

    The last time i checked, many provinces have legislation in place that allows you to take time off work for military service. Look into this matter in your provincial statues. There may be maximum blocks you can take off at a time and still have your job protected under legislation. Also, every...

Class and studying is already enough of...

    Do Reserve members go on Reg Force Training ?

    CAVEAT: Army and Navy Reserves have a hard time getting their members on Reg Force courses. RCAF Reserve ONLY trains their people on Reg Force courses. My spouse is RCAF Res who has done Reg Force BMQ and Reg Force QL3. The RCAF Reserve is totally integrated into Reg Force units therefore...

The 3-4 other occupations that require you to have a Masters Degree ie PSO or Physio do NOT require you to have a BA only the applicable Master's Degree. It's...

    Air battle managers support Exercise Antler South

    Pretty much, "Air Weapons Controller" was replaced with "Air Battle Manager" fairly recently. Expect to see ABM used in the future. I have seen more regular articles about them too, go figure AEC needs to recruit more people.
