      We’ve been reporting here over the past several months about the crisis of Air Force pilot retention. Fighter pilots are bailing out of the Air Force at an alarming rate. The service can’t stabilize its Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) community without resorting to abusive personnel practices that drive airmen out. Air Staff generals not long ago dissolved commander prerogatives allowing.   Fighter pilot retention bonuses could soar to record heights of $, or more, if the U.S. Air Force has its way. "Currently, we have a need to retain fighter pilots that we have," said Ann.

    Last year, the Air Force experienced a drop from 86 percent to 77 percent in the proportion of pilots staying in the service between their sixth and 11th years, a traditional measure of retention.   The cost to train a fifth-generation fighter pilot, she noted, is around $11 million."A 1, fighter pilot shortage amounts to a $12 billion capital loss for the United States Air Force," she.

    Ah, big blue actually making an effort with incentivising pilots to stick around while telling the the rest of the short-manned Air Force to take it or leave it.
