Relevant to my work right now.

We're reviewing proposals for a new USAF aircraft system for which we have a clear requirement for a system OFF switch (in the event of subsystem malfunction). I'm amazed at how poorly some respondents have addressed the requirement.

We clearly said we wanted a switch "to power off without exercising circuit breakers in the event of an error"!!!  Argh!

You actually want them to actually work?   You're a mean one... >:D

The Woman's version will come with the upper false pocket flaps unattached so the Soldier can have them sewn on in a position appropriate their anatomy. This will help them line up their nametag, awards and decorations better than previous tunics/blouses/coats that did not have upper pockets of false flaps. This was asked for by the Female Soldiers that took part in the wear testing.

That should look a lot better, although it would add time for females to get them ready. They're probably happy about it.

Both Barracks and Garrison Covers will be authorized and berets for everyone will be going away. (Thank God)

Second on that. Used to think berets were cool. Until I had to wear one. PITA.

Enlisted Soldiers will sew their rank on their shirt sleeves and unit patches, Skill Tabs and SSI-FWTS will also be worn on the shirt shoulder sleeves by Enlisted and Officers alike.

I like that. Definite throwback, but a welcome one. No reason that you shouldn't be able to identify someone's unit just because they're only wearing a shirt.

The debate for Officer Shirts is to either pin a Rank and a Branch insignia on the shirt collars (see the female Major in Eclipse's first picture) or to add epaulets to the shirt and wear brown Rank slides (see the major in OldGuy's picture in the Pregnancy Uniform), similar to the black slides that are currently worn with the Blues and with the old Greens. This would mean they'd have two different shirts for Officers and Enlisted or Enlisted would have epaulets that were not used on their shirts.

I'd like to see them go with branch and rank on the collars. Slides are OK, but I like the historical significance. Maybe ditch epaulets altogether, the shirts might be a tad cheaper.

The POH/AFM should have that in there.

...

If you fly an aircraft that you're unfamiliar with, it's imperative to review the abnormal/emergency procedures to know memory actions. That said, GA is plagued by a lack of memory actions since you're operating an aircraft based on category and class rather than type certificate. Jumping from aircraft to aircraft can contribute to a lot of issues....


The Lion Air crash and the alleged absence of mention of the new stall prevention system in either transition training for aircrews or the AFM is another illustration of problems arising from unfamiliar equipment.  In GA, with the multiplicity of STCs that affect performance and handling we're actually a lot more likely to encounter a "why'd it do THAT?" situation than pilots flying part 121.  The poster child for this was the Galloping Ghost at Reno 2015.  True, the proximal cause was an old fastener on the remaining elevator trim tab.  But, given the stresses of remarkably higher airspeeds who knows what else might have failed on the next (or any curcuit after that) pass during a high G turn while pointed directly at the grand stands?  That was why the RARA agreed to actually flight test mods BEFORE max performance races.  Imagine that!

*Reno 2011

This was a prime case study for aviation accidents in grad school.

Short of adopting a structure similar to the CGAux, this thread is pointless.

Well if an USCGAux Member is referred to as an Auxiliarist, could a CAP Member be referred to as a Patroller?

In example, "Lieutenant Jones, allow me to introduce Patroller Smith, he is a new Member to our Squadron."

No.

I suggest a beret.

Somebody shoot that man!  :P

5 pages of solutions looking for problems. Instead of changing the title, how about coming up with some kind of insignia? That's the most important thing....

This topic will list administrative action taken, specifically temporary and permanent member bans.
