^ Which, coupled with Herr Zuckerberg's recent soirée with Congress, stress' again, that the
only way to "win" Facebook and other social media, is not to play.

Those new Kayaking Friends come at a price and a risk that is so inherently high and skewed
it's ridiculous.

Warrant ranks are for technical specialists and leaders.

They are officers, but normally not commanders.

They focus on one thing -- perfect track for those who "just want to _____________"  (fly, work with cadets, do ES and so forth)

It addresses the current concern that inexperienced members are having more responsibility thrust on them than they are prepared to undertake.

Professional development for WOs, beyond Level 2, should focus almost exclusively on their specialty track.

Likewise, if it becomes necessary or desirable for a warrant officer to switch to the command/generalist track, there needs to be an expectation that missing PD would be made up, quickly.

Or....and I'm just tossing this out there, you could always remain as a SMWOG, and not even bother participating in the PD program. Want to do ES or CP or AE exclusively and not deal with other stuff? Just don't....

Does anyone happen to have a copy of the old CAPR 35-5 at all?

https://www.ncwgcap.org/UserFiles/File/PD/R35-5_Appointments_and_Promotions.pdf

I have the 1 Jan 2014 version as well.   I have no idea how much is different between that one and the 2008 version that Eclipse posted.

The problem with aviator retention is not in the grade structure, titles, uniforms, etc.  As long as commercial airlines, top end charter operators, private businesses are able to recruit high quality pre-trained aviators from the military nothing will change.  In the past the military has tried bonus payments to keep aviators, they have tried longer lock ins, and a few other programs that at best offer only short term solutions to a long term problem.
Although the Air Force does not as a matter of course go out and play in the mud as Army and Marine aviators, nor do they have to contend with months long ship deployments like the Navy, they are still subjected to frequent PCS Moves, TDY's, and deployments to hostile fire areas. 
So where is the answer?  I don't know.

If you know the difference between being a Leader and being a Manager then you know what leadership is.


"To begin with, we do not in the Army talk of "management", but of "leadership". This is significant. There is a difference between leadership and management. The leader and the men who follow him represent one of the oldest, most natural and most effective of all human relationships. The manager and those he manages are a later product, with neither so romantic nor so inspiring a history. Leadership is of the spirit compounded of personality and vision; its practice is an art. Management is of the mind, more a matter of accurate calculation, of statistics, of methods, time tables, and routine; its practice is a science. Managers are necessary; leaders are essential".

Field-Marshall Sir William Slim GCB, GCMG, GCVO, GBE, DSO, MC
Governor General of Australia (at the time he wrote this)
Published in the Australian Army Journal, September 1957, pp. 5-13
