Enlisted aviator careers open

SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. (AFPN) -- Opportunities for enlisted aviators have never been better. With possible nine enlisted aviator careers, the dream of flying can quickly become a reality for Air Force people.

According to Master Sgt. Jack Baker, from Air Mobility Command's aircrew training office, an urgent need for enlisted fliers exists. More than 300 training positions are open for enlisted people in the rank of senior airman to master sergeant.

"AMC has aggressively pursued recruits to retrain," said Baker. "Considering all the fantastic opportunities available, it's hard to believe so many positions remain unfilled."

Positions are open for flight engineers, airborne communications and electronics specialists, airborne battle management systems specialist, flight attendants and airborne cryptologic linguists.

Under the CAREERS retraining program, first-term airmen assigned to units within the continental United States may apply beginning the first duty day of the month in which they complete 35 months of their enlistment (59 months for six-year enlistees), and no later than the last duty day of the 43rd month of their current enlistment (67 months for six-year enlistees). Airmen stationed overseas may apply between the 15th and 9th month before their return date with at least 35 months of service (59 for six-year enlistees) on their return.

Along with the chance to fly around the world comes incentive pay, Baker said.

Enlisted aviators receive monthly incentive pay ranging from $150 to $400 based on the number of years of aviation service, not rank.
