What is crew rest?
Is there a “valid time” or validity window associated with quiet hour waivers at ETAR?
My mission was already scheduled close to maximum duty day, and then had a Human Remains movement added. We delayed during our itinerary, which forced us into another crew rest and delayed the HR movement. Was there no backup for this mission?
How many diplomatic clearances does TACC process each day?
Any insight from the FMs on CFPs requiring a level off altitude well before the aircraft can actually climb to that altitude (thus causing problems with fuel required estimates)?
Due to a strong tailwind, my CFP flight time to a large AMC base in the CONUS was reduced significantly from the planned flight time listed on my GDSS frag. Can this cause problems at the destination station?
My IFM package was missing an 1801 for leg 3 of a multi-leg mission plan.
What does TACC do to mitigate the impact of deteriorating weather conditions at the destination airfield while a sortie is en route?
While crossing the Atlantic en route to CONUS, I discovered I had enough fuel to overfly my planned fuel stop and proceed direct to the destination. However, when I contacted my Flight Manager, I was informed that I might have to wait a few hours for customs support at the destination station if I flew direct—even though it was a main AMC base. Why is that?
Why do weather reports in my IFM package only provide a forecast for +/- 1 hour around scheduled arrival? This does not provide very much information in the case of a significant mission delay.
Why were the weather forecasts in my IFM package so different from the observed headwinds and other conditions we experienced during the flight? These differences resulted in a much greater fuel burn than that indicated by CFP calculations
Why would the FM not automatically provide an updated CFP when I identified updated/different cargo load information on the next leg?
When are Maintenance Response Teams utilized?
My C-17 mission would have run much more smoothly had we been allocated and planned for an Extended Range aircraft—why didn’t TACC set us up for an ER aircraft to begin with?
What publication has the timeline for when load plans/HazDip are due to TACC once the ULN is complete?
Why do I have to explain my mission to duty officers in such detail, aren't they looking at my mission?
Why was one leg of my mission planned for 260,000 pounds of cargo when we only had 130,000 pounds?
Can you add lattitude and longitude markings to weather maps (wind / Tstorms / icing / etc), so they can be used to compare data to the flight plan?
During my last mission, Air Traffic Control amended my flight plan to a different route from the one provided in my IFM package. This is the third time ATC re-routed me along this particular itinerary, and it appears to be the locally preferred traffic routing. Is there a way I can submit this routing to TACC for inclusion in future IFM packages?
During my last trip, which consisted of two different types of missions combined (a “front half” and “back half” mission), I had to coordinate with TACC for an extra crew rest due to an excessive number of flying hours planned within 7 days. Why was my mission planned to exceed 7 day flight hour limitations?
How does flight level wind data get input into FM package?
Is it possible to regularly schedule longer-than-minimum crew rest times (preferably 18-20 hrs) on a particular OEF Channel mission?
Where can I pass on airfield-specific information that would be useful to other aircrews or mission planners?
How can I contact a specific organization assigned to the 618th AOC (TACC)?
Where can I submit a Freedom of Information Act request to the 618th AOC (TACC)?
Can I work with the 618th AOC (TACC) to have humanitarian donations moved overseas?
