They could solve this pretty easily if they  offered commissions and flight school openings to any interested enlisted E4-E6 with an Associate's degree on a competitive basis on the condition they complete a 4 year degree in 3 years. IIRC the Army has a similar commissioning program with ROTC and some of the military junior colleges. They could easily incorporate basic flight and officer training into the same class and kill 2 birds with one stone with minimum additional funding.
"And Saint Attila raised the Holy Hand Grenade up on high saying, "Oh Lord, Bless us this Holy Hand Grenade, and with it smash our enemies to tiny bits. And the Lord did grin, and the people did feast upon the lambs, and stoats, and orangutans, and breakfast cereals, and lima bean-"

" Skip a bit, brother."

"And then the Lord spake, saying: "First, shalt thou take out the holy pin. Then shalt thou count to three. No more, no less. "Three" shall be the number of the counting, and the number of the counting shall be three. "Four" shalt thou not count, and neither count thou two, execpting that thou then goest on to three. Five is RIGHT OUT. Once the number three, being the third number be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade to-wards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuffit. Amen."

Flying as a career path is looking pretty risky these days with how quickly drone technology is advancing.  Not surprised people are shying away from it.

Makes too much sense.  But they are letting enlisted folks pilot drones, wear funky wings and poopy suits just like real pilots.


Oh, that 'cute' little antidote about the hand grenade, worded like a biblical text at the bottom of the post?  At least you were not mocking or insulting something you've probably never read, etc. BTW, after 8 years in the active Navy, then several years as an active air-guard reservist in a fighter squadron, I've not been exactly accused of being 'sensitive' but I guess I can just ignore it, eh?

You do know that's from Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail, right?

the word you were looking for is "anecdote."

And it was actually a "quote" from Monty Python and the Holy Grail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOrgLj9lOwk

When you hear of an 'antidote' for being a Monty Python fan give me a call,  M'Kay???

Sheesh...

" Skip a bit, brother."

"And then the Lord spake, saying: "First, shalt thou take out the holy pin. Then shalt thou count to three. No more, no less. "Three" shall be the number of the counting, and the number of the counting shall be three. "Four" shalt thou not count, and neither count thou two, execpting that thou then goest on to three. Five is RIGHT OUT. Once the number three, being the third number be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade to-wards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuffit. Amen."

There is no antidote to being Pythonized. >:D


NOBODY expects an antidote to being Pythonized!

This is translating into how much money?
I heard an additional $2.5 million?
