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.

Washington - Satellite images taken this month of a North Korean naval shipyard indicate Pyongyang is pursuing an “aggressive schedule” to build its first operational ballistic missile submarine, a U.S. institute reported on Thursday. Washington-based 38 North, a North Korea monitoring project, cited images taken on Nov. 5 showing activity at North Korea’s Sinpo South Shipyard. “The presence of what appear to be sections of a submarine’s pressure hull in the yards suggests construction of a new submarine, possibly the SINPO-C ballistic missile submarine - the follow-on to the current SINPO-class experimental ballistic missile

Officials at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs decided in September to put local VA officials in charge of $264 million that had previously been set aside for specific programs to help homeless veterans. VA officials in Washington say the directive will help the agency’s medical directors around the country respond to the changing needs of veterans as it seeks to improve medical care and prevent suicides. But the shift has generated concern among L.A. County officials, who say it could result in about $34 million being diverted from paying case managers who help homeless veterans find permanent housing to fund other programs

The list keeps track of the male members most known for their inappropriate behavior in the offices, where one former House aide said that many men "have no self-control" around their female colleagues. More than 50 Hill staffers and lawmakers told CNN that they have experienced sexual harassment or unwanted advances while working in Congress. Lawmakers are beginning to address the issue.

Saudi Arabia has embarked on another foreign policy adventure by intervening in Lebanon´s delicate sectarian power balance to undermine Iranian-backed Hezbollah. Yet even working with the U.S. and Israel in trying to isolate the group, the Saudis could end up being little more than a minor inconvenience for militants whose tentacles have stretched from their southern Lebanon heartlands in recent years. Hezbollah is a regional force, with combatants in Yemen, Iraq and helping President Bashar al-Assad prevail in Syria.

In a crowded field, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has emerged as the least popular member of President Donald Trump’s administration. Her support of the for-profit college industry at the expense of students is unlikely to improve her standing. Under President Barack Obama, the government took steps to impose greater accountability on the industry and protect students from predatory schools. The policy is both just and cost-effective: For-profit schools saddle students with more debt and lead to higher default rates than traditional schools. In 2016, the department issued the gainful-employment rule, which requires any

Washington - The Pentagon approved a gender-reassignment surgery for an active-duty military member, defense officials said on Tuesday, four months after President Trump abruptly announced a ban on transgender people serving in the military. The surgery is the latest setback to Mr. Trump’s effort to put a ban in place. Two weeks ago, a federal judge temporarily blocked the ban, ruling that the justification for it was suspect and most likely unconstitutional. Even before the ruling, officials at the Defense Department had been slow-walking Mr. Trump’s orders, telling transgender members of the military that they could

I’ll just call him “the Colonel".
