Two-week summit takes aim at retention

Attendees of the aircrew retention summit discuss one of nine working group areas Aug. 15 during a two-week aircrew retention summit as part of a holistic approach to improve readiness and capacity by increasing retention of experienced aviators. The topics discussed were selected based on what aviators electing to separate from the military at the end of their service commitment said were their primary contributing factors on their exit surveys. The first week of the summit focused on pairing SMEs with the aviators to ensure all proposed solutions were balanced with political and monetary realities.
