    Maybe he is just one of those dudes that would rather just do the damn flying himself. He seems like an Alpha and that would be consistent with Type A personalities.

    Is an O-5 in the Air Force a major? Is that considered a senior officer or is that O-6 and above? I would think you'd need to be a senior officer to even fly it.

    See, I thought the opposite. It's such a specialty air craft that I would think it would require an experience aviator to get qualified to fly it. Like the B2. I wasn't even considering the physical component.

    An O-5 is a Lt. Colonel. In the Air Force, we considered a senior officer to be O-6 (Colonel) and above.

    They enter pilot training as a 2nd Lt. and if they stay in the cockpit most if not all of their career they typically quit flying as a Lt. Colonel.
