airnav Posted March 24, 2009 Share Posted March 24, 2009 As Skip Davenport has said, "I was in special op's, before special op's was cool!" My sentiments exactly. I was told that my career would be ruined when I went into special operations, and.........really didn't care. It was where I wanted to be, because I was "invited" to come aboard. I have never, nor will I ever regret the experience! Big Blue wants AFSOC to be a command like every other command, and I see great dismay with this outlook; and what is to come. In my humble opinion, AFSOC crews should "pay their dues" and gain experience before APPLYING for an AFSOC assignment. For example: Fixed Wing= 1,500 hrs. in C130 variants. Rotary Wing= 1,000 hrs. Flt. Eng.= same as pilots Load Mstrs.= 1,000 hrs. in C130 variants CSO= 1,000 hrs. in C130 variants, or 500 to 1,000 for EWO position I'm sure this will jerk some chains out there, but I'm entitled to my opinion.
