Trump´s Plan to Save Air Force from
Collapse Due to Pilot Shortage Won´t
Work, U.S. Military Says

Newsweek Magazine, by John Haltiwanger

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/14/2017 6:18:26 PM

The U.S. Air Force said Tuesday that an executive order signed by President Donald Trump doesn´t solve its massive pilot shortage as intended. Trump´s order allows the Air Force to recall up to 1,000 retired pilots to active duty to ensure it has enough aviators who are combat-ready. By law, all branches of the military are typically only allowed to bring back 25 officers at a time. But the Air Force is short 2,000 pilots as of last week, and pilot recalls aren´t sufficient to meet needs. "We appreciate the flexibility, but we want pilots with more than just a three-year commitment," an Air Force spokesman told Fox News on Tuesday.

Comments:
While this is a scary thought for one who served in the USAF as a Phantom II Phixer, this is disturbing news. 0bama needed to destroy our military superiority by ridding it of good career officers and dumbing down fighting units and their efficiency. I have no doubt that in an "emergency", good men will come forward. Even approaching 70, I am healthy enough to teach the younger crews about electronic maintenance, if allowed.

I´m pushing 80. But though I doubt I could still fly anything high performance safely and effectively, I could certainly do simulator instruction. Of course the AF would hang up on me if I inquired & if they didn´t, my wife would find the old revolver I bought her when I went to VN and would maim me with it. ;-)

And why are we short of pilots? Thank the Obambi administration. Yes, the gift that keeps on screwing us. Obambi, in his quest to lead from behind (like, from some underground bunker similar to Hitler), cut the military and the USAF started cutting the most expensive employees. I know, having lived in two USAF miltiary base town that pilots were fired left and right. Cuts have consequnces and Obambi never gave a crap abot the consequences of his decisions.

Training pilots is a two year process. The training programs are full and can´t easily absorb large numbers of new candidates. Perhaps the AF leadership should actually ask and pay serious attention to tbeir pilots as to why they are quitting. Frequent deployments and change of station are perhaps destroying family life and morale. Reductions in force just make these factors worse.

The AF has always mismanaged this program. Pilots want to fly. The AF forces them to be office weenies. Not that there is anything wrong with office weenies, but pilots did not become pilots to be office weenies.
Then there is the up or out thing. The real pilots who fight becoming office weenies and just become expert pilots are passed over for not having enough paper pushing. They are looked down on by the office weenie types that have been promoted. It is a bad cycle. You just get sick of it and quit.

Wonder why the Air Force doesn’t use the Warrant Officer rank for some of it’s pilots and let them spend their career flying. Seemed to work for the Army and helicopter pilots. That’s probably the problem. The Army did it.

10 and 12 hit the nail right on the head. Pilots want to fly. Thats all they want to do. They dont want to be the voting officer, the chair of the party coordinating committee or the urinalysis officer. Neither do they want to attend diversity training classes or sexual harassment school.
Early in my career their answer to the pilot retention problem was to give them spiffy WW2 style leather flyer jackets. That didnt work. Just symbolism over substance.

I don´t see a shortage of Navy and Marine pilots. Their ranks are full, what has the Airforce done differently that caused the shortage? O´Bumbeler certainly played a part, but the Airforce shot themselves in the foot.

USAF planed to have a space command and drone pilots to meet their new mission. Now they need pilots to fly real aircraft.

The Airforce is the only branch of the military that views themselves as a 40 hour a week job. They forgot that if the Army or Marines needed infantry, their Airmen would become riflemen, and deployed where they are needed.


I am not trying to rag on the Airforce, their leadership became distracted about what their mission is superposed to be.


IMHO, and everyone has an opinion.

If the glamour job of the AF is facing a severe shortage, what about the technicians who service and repair the incredibly complex aircraft and who service the sophisticated weapons on combat aircraft? Have these specialists also moved to better paying, more stable jobs with the airlines and private aircraft companies? Same question applies to most AF positions, whether air traffic controllers or cargo specialists. Planes that aren´t air worthy will drive even more pilots away from the AF.

Most frightening thing about this story is that North Korea, Iran and other adversaries are well aware of our deficiencies.

During that three years, you train some more pilots. How hard is that to figure out?

I had a friend who went through pilot school, switched to back seater on a F15E, and fought in Desert Storm. Immediately after the war, he and dozens more of young pilots and weapons systems officers and navs were given their walking papers, even though many wanted to stay.
Sounds like pretty incompetent planning to me.

Americans can travel to North Korea, if they wish -- but it may just be a death wish, the U.S. State Department cautioned. The State Department last week issued a stark warning to people setting out for the Hermit Kingdom, cautioning that anyone heading to the dangerous dictatorship should prepare for the possibility of not returning. “The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in North Korea as it does not have diplomatic or consular relations with North Korea,” the State Department published Wednesday on its website. Those who wish to travel to North Korea must be approved for a

The “Gang of Six” amnesty for millions of illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program should be rolled “straight into the trash can,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) says. On Wednesday, a group of six pro-amnesty Senators will roll out their expansive immigration amnesty plan that would not only give a pathway to U.S. citizenship beginning with 3.5 million DACA and DACA-eligible illegal aliens but also give amnesty to the parents of amnesty beneficiaries.

NHK denied any mechanical flaw and said Wednesday it is studying preventive measures. The erroneous news flash Tuesday said North Korea appeared to have fired a missile at Japan and that the government was warning people to take shelter. NHK retracted the mistake within minutes and apologized on air and on other formats.

Participants in a 20-nation summit on the North Korean nuclear threat have called for continued sanctions on the country, in an effort to pressure the regime to give up its rapidly advancing nuclear programme. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who participated in the one-day meeting in Vancouver, Canada, said the event sent a simple message: "We will not accept a nuclear-armed North Korea." The sentiment was echoed by Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono, who urged the international community not to ease up on North Korea despite its recent cooperation with the South.

Washington - The Trump administration said Tuesday that it will rush to the U.S. Supreme Court within a few days by skipping over a federal appeals court, hoping for quick action in the legal battle over shutting down the DACA program. "It´s an extremely unusual request, one that is granted once in a blue moon," said Tom Goldstein, publisher of the SCOTUSBlog website. "It´s a signal by the Trump administration that they take this issue incredibly seriously and think the justices should, too." A federal judge ruled Jan. 9 that the government could not end the program on March 6, as President Donald Trump proposed to do.

On Sunday protesters clashed with police in Tunis. Some young men threw stones and police used tear gas, local reports said. The protests were staged in the run-up to the seventh anniversary of the ousting of President Zine El Abiding Ben Ali in 2011, an event that signaled the beginning to the Arab Spring. Most in the region are not looking back at those momentous events. Instead they are dealing with the aftereffects and many governments appear to hope that not discussing the Arab spring will mean the causes of the frustration that led to it will go away.

In a sharp departure from his predecessors on the national day of service, Mr. Trump spent the bulk of the holiday at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida. President George W. Bush typically marked the holiday with a public event such as attending a service honoring King at a Baptist church in Landover, Maryland, or greeting volunteers at a public high school in Washington.

Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.
