    The short version is that the AF is struggling to maintain its aggressor air squadrons due to personal shortages, budget cuts, and expensive programs like the F-35. The AF is soliciting bids from companies like Airborne Tactical Advantage Company and Draken International to fly 180 training missions over a two-week period later this year.
