Nothing new. I remember playing “meaningless management drivel (MMD)” buzzword bingo at one-liners as a junta pilot back in the early 2000s.

Yep, exactly. There seems to be a few people on the other thread totally confusing the Titan lease as 146 CSAT replacement. The two are completely different.

In the UK, you can no longer add time for each sector to factor it. The only method is to run a separate "civilian" logbook and record block times and have it signed off by your CO.

It's no real issue. Most juniors are more interested in Op MASSIVE nowadays. Boozing does not help you look ripped. If ISS were savvy, they'd be opening juice bars and selling protein shakes.
