Instructions and Help about Air force portal

All right let's get into it shall we I'm gonna do a pretty normal I makeup look but I really really wanted to talk about how the Air Force is setting me up for success in my life like honestly I had no idea I mean it sounds stupid but when I was signing I thought I would get like a couple hundred thousand or not a couple hundred thousand like a thousand dollars about a hundred thousand dollars for education and that I would have like free insurance but I did not know quite and I mean honestly the extent of success that I would be able to kind of prepare myself for what I mean by that is I mentioned in a previous video I'm planning on moving to Florida in the future at some point doesn't really matter when I'm hoping to do it soon but you know I was looking into like renting or buying a house and I was like well obviously I can't buy a house I'm 21 years old I have like not enough money in the bank to buy a house and it just wasn't on my list so I was talking to my mom as most young adults do when they don't know what to do in life and she was like well I think you should consider the VA loan and it was like Oh tell me more because I have never heard of this before and she goes yeah that's how me and your dad bought our house when we were first married when we had no money and we were able to do that cuz it alone I was like okay but like I don't know if I can do that cuz I'm not a veteran you know so I look into this VA loan and I was like oh are you kidding me this is the best thing in the world I don't know why this isn't advertised like when people are joining but basically if you want to join the airforce or any military branch because it applies to all veterans there is this beautiful wonderful thing called a veterans assistance homeland and essentially what it is you go look at houses by yourself a realtor you find yourself alone professional I don't know and you go hey I like this house I want to use a VA loan on it help me out and why the VA loan is so special is you don't have to pay anything down if you can't or don't want to you don't have to and that's a huge deal because usually that's what like 20% of house 10% 5% either way it's a lot of money and a lot of people don't have a lot of money which is why buying a home is typically thought of as a thing to do when you're like old I don't know so when I've learned this I was like you.


What is the process involved in leaving any branch of the U.S. Military?
My end of active service after 8 years in the Marine Corps was in June of 1994 but I understand most of the process is still the same. It more or less starts about a year before your contract is up when you have to go and see the Career Jammer...I mean Planner. This is an NCO or Staff NCO whose job it is to try and retain Marines that the Corps would like to keep. My MOS (Military Occupational Skill) was undermanned at the time so the career jammer tried a few times pretty slyly to talk with me about the merits of staying in the Corps but I had made my mind up and it wasn't going to be changed so the conversations were cordial but short. If you want to explore possibilities, they will present those to you of course keeping in mind that their job is to do what's best for the many (The Corps) and not the few (you) necessarily. Getting closer to actual EAS, you have to take a separation physical where you get thoroughly poked and prodded and the doctor, in my case our squadron flight surgeon, reviews your medical record for any abnormal change in your medical condition since you originally enlisted. There are really three things they are looking for...any condition that needs to be treated immediately so you can be healed up before you are separated, any chronic conditions that will require treatment long term and any condition you may have that is a result of military service and will be the basis for a Veteran's Administration claim following your separation.  I had to get my annual aero-medical (flight) physical anyway and it was more stringent than the separation physical so I just went down about 90 or so days before I was supposed to get out and killed two birds with one stone. This also involved a trip to the dentist for full checkup and cleaning and a trip to the optometrist to have my vision checked and be issued new glasses.  Next I had to sit through a few classes on transition to civilian life, some of the things that would be different, how to look for a new job, how to create a resume (C.V.), different resources available to me, etc. Keep in mind this was pretty much pre-internet so I was given about 15 lbs. of literature (no shit, 15 lbs. I just found the stuff in an old box and tossed it out a couple months ago)After my transition classes the other Marines at work got me what is called a "Short-Timer's Calendar" Most of them might not be appropriate for me to post here, lest someone take offense, but if you want to see a short timer's calendar just search 'Short Timer Calendar Marines' on Google and have a chuckle. I filled in a space each day and the spaces for Saturday and Sunday when I came in on Monday. It was prominently displayed behind my desk. (My last year in the Corps I was an instructor at the Marine Corps' new helicopter crewchief academy and had a desk in the instructor's area) I made sure to point it out to all the other instructors and remind those unfortunate souls who had made the decision to make the Corps a career that it would be years, in some cases, more than a decade, before they would see one of these. Usually this resulted in a string of epithets that Marines are so artful with, typically starting with F&^% and ending with F&^% and often liberally punctuated with this same word in all it's forms and uses, which are many.Around the same time I had to talk with my boss, a Gunnery Sergeant (E-7) and his boss, a Mastery Gunnery Sergeant (E-9) about taking terminal leave. For the uninitiated, Terminal Leave can be granted when the Marine has a balance of leave (military term for vacation) on the books and wants to take it at the end of their contract. Let's say you have 45 days on the books and want to get out 45 days earlier than your end of service date for whatever reason. A lot of guys I knew that were getting out and going back to college took terminal leave to be able to start school at the beginning of a semester. I put in my request for terminal leave and it was approved so now I actually had a last day on the calendar which was formally approved.  Once this was in place I had to schedule some different meetings: review of my flight records, review of my maintenance qualification records, review of my flight qualification records, review of my service record book, make sure every damn list of documents that was supposed to be read and signed off on was done and signed and everyone was happy, etc. I also had an debriefing by our intelligence folks to talk about classified information and the fact that there were a few things I shouldn't ever discuss unless I was specifically told it was okay to do so by the proper authority. This is typically the case only where you have had access to specially compartmentalized information. You have a review of what the rules are, a bit of Q&A if you need it and then you get to sign a few more things with bold sections about prison and other horrible possible outcomes from failing to follow the rules, which you have just signed in 15 spots to acknowledge you thoroughly understand.Did I mention there's a lot of signing and initialing? I should also mention that you have to schedule all of this crap around the things that you have to do in the performance of your regular duties.A few days before I was supposed to get out, I had most things done (and signed) and had already transitioned most of my classroom and flying duties over to other instructors so I spent some time at other squadrons catching up with some old friends, swapping contact info, etc. Would have been great to have had FaceBook back then!  I also went back to the squadron I had been with for 6.5 years and did some flying with them, some with my students and some just taking flights with other crewchiefs or pilots that I liked. I even spent a day washing a couple of helicopters with my old buddies. We had a couple of parties at work and other Marine's houses, the enlisted club, couple pilots took me to the Officer's club for beers and shots, etc.About a week before my last day I started doing a final checkout on base. I had to go to a bunch of different places and make sure they had no files open with my name on them, pick up medical records, dental records, etc. and turn any field gear in, clean my weapon at the armory and turn my pistol and rifle cards in, etc. Of course I had a checkout sheet and every person I dealt with had to put a note on it or sign it, or both. Pretty much the last thing I did was turn in my flight gear. I got lucky in that they were going to retire my helmet, probably since no one else would ever want to put that nasty sweatbucket on THEIR head. So I walked away with a complete checkout sheet and a souvenir. I then went to the squadron offices and they gave me my personnel records and a Check-IN sheet for separations. I was told to show up over at their offices the next morning around 0800 or something.I appeared at Separations on time and in the Summer Service C uniform (versus a flight suit or cammies which were my norm) and stood in a formation where they called everyone's name. I turned in my record packet and was told to go away and be back at 1300 for another formation. This went on for 2 days. At the end of the second day, the day before I got out, I was told to show up at around 0900 the next day and pick up my walking papers and a check for moving allowances and final pay.My memories of my last day are bit funny. I showed up a bit before the designated time and as it was a little chilly, I had on my leather flight jacket with my uniform. A Staff Sergeant, who must have been having a really bad already, I say this because of the look of twisted rage on her face as she approached me, decided that I would be her target of opportunity. As I got within 50 feet of her heading towards the building she started yelling and shrieking at me in a loud voice. She went on and on about me being out of uniform and that the leather flight jacket was only authorized for commissioned officers, (which isn't the case) blah, blah, blah, blah. I stopped, smiled at her and told her she, with all due respect, should go straight to hell and she could start digging the hole about one meter from where she was standing off to the side of the walk. I pointed. She really cranked the volume up then and started cursing, really pouring on the coal too, she was seriously pissed. I laughed at her, smiled and said, have a nice day, I have to go pick up my discharge papers. I walked off into the building.The final act was to go and review my discharge papers, Department of Defense Form 214 or DD-214 and I believe sign it. I was handed a check for pay and allowances and told that upon my effective date of full discharge, 45 days hence, they would mail me the finished copy of my DD-214 to my home of record and they recommended that I go and have it officially recorded in case I ever lost it. When it was all said and done, this old crusty Gunnery Sergeant came from the back, shook my hand and thanked me for my service to my country and the Marine Corps. The last two things he said to me were have a nice day and to remember, once a Marine, always a Marine. It was a strange feeling when I went back to my apartment and took my uniform off for the last time officially...relief and a bit nerve wracking at the same time.This was my experience anyway. I wish that I would have had those online checklists that Thomas Snerdley talked about but I'm sure there still would have been some a-hole to yell at me on the last day...haha.
Can I fill out an Indian Air Force form again?
Yes. You can fill the form and appear for exam both as an airman or officer any number of times till you are within the age range and possess the educational qualification. It is the CPSS/PABT exam where you can appear only once (to join as a pilot), whether you pass or fail.
Can girls fill out the Air Force form from the next vacancy of the Air Force XY group?
As of now, girls will not be taken in as personnel below officer rank in the three services. Girls can only become officers.Paramilitary forces like BSF, CISF, Assam Rifles, etc., do take in girls.
How were we able to put a man on the moon with the level of technology that was available in 1969? Did NASA have advanced technologies that were just not made public?
Q: How were we able to put a man on the moon with the level of technology that was available in 1969?By spending a crap ton of money over ten years, peaking at 5% of the federal budget. And by relying as much as possible on already proven technology, which isn’t as “high-tech” as you think (more on that below).Q: Did NASA have advanced technologies that were just not made public?Not really. They developed the advanced technologies they needed, and except where they were borrowing from the military, they then made them public. NASA’s primary job, after all, is to promote and nurture the American aerospace industry.Here are a few examples of how the technology came to be:Back in 1961, NASA knew it would need a big moon rocket, but they didn’t know how big or have a design for it. They knew, however, that back in 1955, Rocketdyne had started work on the granddaddy of rocket engines for the Air Force. The first attempt (the E-1) had been a dead end, but the second try (the F-1) had been successfully fired in 1957—the year before NASA was founded. The Air Force had abandoned the engine, but NASA paid Rocketdyne to continue development, and the engine was improved continually throughout the Apollo program, including thrust and reliability upgrades from one mission to another. For all that, the F-1 was in many ways a crude engine by today’s standards. In particular, it required hundreds of difficult, manual welds in refractory metal, all of which had to be perfect. Today, the same engine could be formed in three (principle) pieces and welded together by robots, but back then, it was all done by hand.NASA knew the big moon rocket would need an utterly reliable navigation system—though they didn’t know how good it really needed to be. They also knew it would need a more flexible computer than missiles of the time, or the crew would be overwhelmed. The MIT Instrumentation Laboratory had been involved in both fields for the military, so it was the obvious choice to design the IMU, Computer, and navigational sensors. Companies like Raytheon, who had built earlier systems for the military, were the obvious people to build it. It turned out that radio ranging from Earth was about as accurate as the Apollo navigation system, but the crew were happy to have the backup. Again, this bleeding edge 1969 technology is mickey mouse today. A modern laser ring gyroscope is more accurate, less power hungry, and a damn site lighter than the Apollo IMU, and my cell phone has 100,000 times the power of the 70 pound, 55 watt AGC. NASA did, however, buy integrated circuits as fast as Fairchild Semiconductor could make them, spurring development in the field, and they had to learn to build human-rated systems for the radiation filled space environment and keep them cool in a cabin that had no air convection (and sometimes no air), and we still use those lessons today.Since the new moon rocket was going to take a while (whether the Nova or the Saturn), Werner Von Braun’s team assembled a Frankenstein’s Erector Set of spare parts from Juno, Jupiter, and other earlier rockets, and while bizarre and not very efficient, the resultant “Saturn I” served Apollo’s needs in low Earth orbit through the Skylab era.When Boeing finally started on the Saturn, they found that the first stage required aluminum welds longer than anyone in the world knew how to make. So they figured it out. Today, we can weld nuclear submarine hulls that are inches thick and 100 feet around. That’s technology.When North American Aviation was given the contract for the Saturn second stage (The S-II) they didn’t have enough weight budget for the normal bulkheads and insulation between the liquid oxygen and hydrtanks. They came up with an insulating common bulkhead made of fiberglass and phenolic resin. When they had trouble getting the (then cutting edge) epoxy adhesives to perform, they called on local surf board makers who were happy to share their expertise (That might have been the S-IVB upper stage, built by Douglas).To study propellant behavior in large booster stages, NASA borrowed ten-year old technology from early spy satellites and used ejectable pods to recover film cameras mounted inside the tanks of test flights.To save power, the Command Module was primarily lit by bespoke compact fluorescent floodlights, made by GE using technology already under development, and later refined into the (now essentially obsolete) CFL.LEM design started in 1962 with a request for proposals to 11 firms. As development of the rest of the mission components proceeded, however, every limitation or compromise ate into the allowable weight for the LEM. Later improvements in engine thrust and operational efficiency opened that up and enabled the heavier, later missions, but when Grumman won the contract, the weight restrictions seemed impossible to meet. So they ditched the chairs (who need’s ‘em?) and the windows (portals will do, if facing just right). They held company-wide contests to shave weight off the design. For the pressure hull/fuselage, they machined solid sheets of aircraft aluminum into grids, then chemically etched the remaining metal to create tapered panels, barely thicker than a soda can in some places, but sufficient to hold the mere 5 psi atmosphere within the LEM. It worked and met NASA’s requirements, but it cost a fortune, and each LEM was rated for only a few pressurization cycles. Today, we could build the ascent stage for half the weight and 100 times the life using carbon fiber composites, and cut the descent stage (dry) weight by about 80%.Large booster stages could rely on acceleration (either from the main engines or small “ullage motors”) to keep propellants flowing, but that wouldn’t work for true spacecraft, which needed to be able to fire thrusters at will, both for ullage and maneuvering, and as a backup in case of main engine failure. NASA’s solution was to use rubber bladders like those used in WWII aircraft to prevent fuel tanks from exploding when hit by enemy fire. Helium, pressing between the bladder and the intake, kept the propellant where it needed to be. You sometimes hear people talking about how the Apollo ascent engine couldn’t be tested because the hypergolic propellants would have corroded it before launch. That’s not true. The engine (and thrusters) could easily be made to resist corrosion, but the rubber bladders couldn’t. When the space shuttle came along, NASA spent a lot of money inventing an alternative that relies on surface tension and operational restrictions to eliminate the need for the bladder (or a more complex alternative), and that’s why the shuttle’s OMS engines and thrusters didn’t have to be replaced after every flight.The main heat shield for the first 6 Mercury flights was a single piece of machined beryllium—a technology lifted from early ICBMs. Mercury and Gemini capsules were protected from reentry heating by high temperature alloy shingles developed from the same nuclear missile research. Later Mercury and Gemini flights used a brand new ablative material developed specially for them, and this was refined to protect the whole Apollo Command Module and dispense with the metal shingles. The heat shield for the leading edges of the space shuttle was derived from research into the ablative shields used on Apollo. The ablative heat shield used by the modern Orion, Space-x and Boeing capsules was developed from that used on Apollo, but modified to essentially decompose into the same pyrolyzed carbon that protected the leading edges of the shuttle, creating a reusable, self-renewing heat shield.By the way. NASA wasn’t created to send people to the moon. It was created to assist American aerospace businesses and, in matters of aeronautical or space, the American public and all mankind.The reason we could build a LEM of composites today…the reason Boeing can build a jumbo jet of composites today—is in part because NASA paid to have those materials characterized so they could use them on the payload bay doors of the shuttle. And the reason today’s space entrepreneurs can show off their fancy propulsive landing systems is—in large part—because NASA paid a lot of money to essentially create the practice of Computational Fluid Dynamics, without which neither the shuttle nor these modern wonders could have flown.We went to the moon with what was, at the time, cutting edge, custom-made, sometimes poorly understood, often barely adequate technology. The basic science hasn’t changed much since, but our manufacturing ability has grown by leaps and bounds—in part due to the spur it received from Apollo and the last fifty years of refinement.I said above that the technology that took us to the moon isn’t as advanced as you might think. I mentioned carbon composites and robotic welders and the heavy inertial platform and computer, and the WWII rubber bladders. Apollo also used parabolic dish antennas, both in space and on the ground, though newer ground antennas typically use the more efficient offset Gregorian configuration and spacecraft now often use fractal antennas—which were originally designed for cell phones.[Apollo CSM with quad parabolic high gain antenna by engine and simitar VHF antenna (white) mid-way between and behind thruster quads.][Offset Gregorian radio telescope.]
Can girls fill a form for Air Force X and Y?
Currently, IAF is not allowing Female Candidates to join X and Y group. Female Candidates after completing graduation can opt for AFCAT to join IAF as an officer and serve the motherland. In future if there will any provision to select girls in X and Y group, it will notified on IAF official website. Jai Hind.
Can I change my choice of service from the Army to the Air Force after filling out the NDA form?
No ,Now at this time you cant change the preferences!!As per my knowledge i suggest you to go for SSB without any tension.If you clear it as well as medicals then you just join the academy as it is .After joining the academy you can change your service according to your choice .So now just prepare for your SSB.All the best !!!!
Can I fill out the Air Force Xandy group form through an improvement exam marksheet?
Nowadays You have Fair chances rather than Decade old method when Everything was supposed to be Manual and Offline. Fill the Online form Next year I hope U'll get The Call up.
