    Canada to Spend $5.0Bil on AEW Aircraft

    USAF pilots do use "go pills" but they don’t use them to fly for 24hrs straight.

    Canada to Spend $5.0Bil on AEW Aircraft

    It is also done commercially with relief crew and crew rest compartments. A KC-46A flew for more than 40 hrs straight last week. Can’t do that without sleeping at some point. From an article on the feat: Real-time updates were crucial in achieving those goals, as the aircraft was often...

    Trudeau Popularity - or not. Nanos research

    So, for MPs that aren’t re-elected, the biggest change an extra week would do is getting a transfer value vs return of contribution?

    FWSAR (CC130H, Buffalo, C27J, V22): Status & Possibilities

    The PMO caved to industry pressures to accept aircraft that didn’t meet spec (many of them were regulatory specs). I have seen the train get off the rails (from 2018 until 2022) from a front row seat. It was not pretty and it was pretty sad….

    You complain you don’t have opportunities to maintain proficiency in your SL but you would refuse opportunities to do so? Interesting. My wife spoke very little English when we moved to Cold Lake. Guess what? She adapted and it made her a better person. Life challenges are sometimes good.

    Current Dress Regs

    I am surprised it didn’t make it here but the new (new) dress regs are in. BLUF Hair extending below the collar must be tied behind the back, away from the face When accessories are necessary, they must be black or similar to the hair colour Facial hair limited to 1in in length/bulk Better...

    Current Dress Regs

    We already did that. By allowing males to have long hair. Because hair length makes 0 difference on effectiveness. Contrary to you, I deployed in combat with women fighter pilots with long hair. And it had 0 impact on their ability to effectively do their job.

    Current Dress Regs

    Long hair allows women to adopt a universally accepted societal norm, resulting in feeling accepted and included in their life outside the military, leading to increased morale and retention. If you knew me, you’d know I have about 0 emotion in my decision making. I am pretty sure that no...

    Current Dress Regs

    So, you’re basing your opinion on no verifiable fact? It’s not about perks, but about rights and freedoms. If there is no objective facts support having long hair reducing the standard then it is not an issue. I don’t need to provide an advantage to having long hair, you have to prove it has...

    Standard is subjective but it should be obvious that someone performs at a lower standard than someone else. Are you saying that in your time in Afghanistan (the only shooting war of the recent past we can use as a stake) that you never operated with long-haired women and short-haired women?

    That wasn’t the question. Did they perform to a lower standard? It has nothing to do with the maintenance of the hair.

    Current Dress Regs

    The policy allows commanders to restrict grooming standards for operational reasons. Did women with long hair perform at lower standards than those other women with short hair in Afghanistan? Yes, we need a single standard for all. That standard is not short hair for everyone. The environment...

    Our North - SSE Policy Update Megathread

    How many tanks can we bring per C-17 chock? How long does it take to get sealift across the ocean? I don’t see us ever deploying heavy armour fast enough and in big enough numbers to be relevant. I’ll also argue that if we need rapid deployment of assets, so do our allies and it won’t be...
