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.

The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal.

The Russian spy ship first spotted near American waters last year is making its way back in the direction of the U.S., Fox News confirmed on Thursday. The Victor Leonov is still in the Caribbean, according to officials, but heading north off the coast of Florida, home to a U.S. Navy base located in North Florida, east of Jacksonville. The ship could be off the Florida coast by Friday if the ship maintains present course and speed, according to officials. There is also a ballistic missile submarine base located in southern Georgia known as Kings Bay, which is another likely destination for the spy ship to loiter and watch U.S. “boomers” —

New York - Tim Tebow will be at spring training with the New York Mets. The 30-year-old outfielder was among nine spring training invitees announced by the team Friday. The former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback is preparing for his second professional baseball season. He hit .226 with eight homers, 52 RBIs and 126 strikeouts in 126 games last year at Class A with Columbia in the South Atlantic League and Port St. Lucie in the Florida State League. Tebow was 4 for 27 (.148) with no extra-base hits, one walk and eight strikeouts in nine spring training games for the Mets last year.

Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman can’t seem to rid himself of the “bad boy” image. Rodman was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Saturday in Newport Beach, California, after police say he was “driving like a maniac and blaring music,” TMZ reports. The bigger problem for the former Chicago Bulls star, though, is that he is on probation for a July of 2016 hit-and-run incident in which he was driving the wrong way. This latest arrest could revoke Rodman’s three-year probation and force him to serve prison time, TMZ reports. Rodman was reportedly cooperative with police.

McConnell says Trump’s approval

The Senate won’t vote on an immigration deal unless it has President Trump’s support, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday, effectively dooming the Gang of Six bill even before a bipartisan group of lawmakers officially introduced it. Mr. McConnell said they are waiting to see exactly what Mr. Trump will sign, but the president has said the bill written by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Richard Durbin was rejected by the White House last week, so it’s not the basis for negotiations. “I’m looking for something that President Trump supports and he has not indicated what measure he is willing to sign,” Mr. McConnell told

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some.
