Seems the AF is going to be changing the number of pilot training slots, seems we are producing too many(again). Also there will be some shuffling of those young pilots slick winged Capts and Lts who are in over manned AFSCs. So what the 0-6 I am married to said is expect in Spring 08 for a big shuffle to start overage to short AFSCs. He seemed to think that there are to many fighter pilots and not enough airlift. I knew there were not enough flight hours, many moons ago in the F-16, you needed to fly x number of sorties a month to remain current. That x number has dropped over the years along with the budget. Fighter slots are going to be harder to get out of pilot training. I see a repeat of the 1993-1997 years, these were the years where the UPT slots were slashed. What I really remember of this time are how one of the cadets we sponsored handled not getting a slot. My memory is fuzzy but it seems to me they were producing 1400 pilots a year, they closed Reese AFB and dropped pilot training to 1000 a year. Don't think the cuts will be that deep but there will be no more "2 oh and go". In the 90s, you needed to be in the top half in OM and there were no waivers for things like color blind/weakness.
