Air Force seeks retired pilots to return to active duty

The Air Force is encouraging retired pilots to return to active duty to fill rated staff positions and help alleviate manning shortages within the pilot community, the Air Force Personnel Center said in an announcement Monday.

Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson approved the Voluntary Retired Return to Active Duty Program on July 11. It is one of many initiatives the Air Force is implementing to try and retain qualified pilots and improve their quality of life, said Air Force Personnel Center spokesman Michael Dickerson. This includes making sure pilots are used effectively, Dickerson said.
