Sample text

9 Gen William Creech became commander of Tactical Air Command in 1978 and started a gradual recovery from what he termed the “slippery slope” of declining UTE rates and flying hours per pilot. For a complete discussion of how his management style improved the command’s flying program, see Peters et al. (1989). The flying increase for fighter pilots is documented in Lambeth (2000, p. 71). S. Air Force fighter force was strong because several initiatives had come to fruition over the preceding 15 years.

Less time is spent discussing whether something happened, so more time can be devoted to discussing how and why things happened and how improvements could be made in flying similar missions in the future. MTC cockpits can be regarded as additional training resources for an operational unit. Scheduling this training effectively requires a degree of effort similar to that for live sorties, and the training missions consume equivalent amounts of personnel resources and time. This means that pilots scheduled for MTC training are not available for live training during the preparation, execution, and reconstruction phases of the MTC training.

The training models we developed for operational units in our earlier work partially confirmed this point, but it also appeared to us that pilots who had recently qualified for additional responsibilities, such as new flight leads, needed almost as much training per unit time to maintain and develop the new skills required to lead flights as did the inexperienced wingmen. Similar training needs also apply to new instructor pilots. This means that most pilots who actually require less training are the experienced instructor pilots.
