FoverF said:There's also the option of.. wait for it... wait for it... enlisted flight crew. One (or god forbid, even both) of the crew could be army NCOs, and trained in the US. That would go a long way towards addressing the aircrew problem, and with a minimal burden on our training infrastructure.
Having an officer or an NCM pilot/nav won't add any new members to the system; you're just robbing Peter to pay Paul, so to speak. Even in the US Army, where Warrant Officers are Apache (and other) pilots, it's not *exactly* the same as our definition of Warrant Officer.
