That's just what the Reserve Citizen Airmen instructors at the AATTC are doing.
"Since it opened, the AATTC has been the mobility aircrew center of excellence for tactics training," Franks said.
The AATTC currently offers six courses: the Advanced Tactics Aircrew Course, the Combat Aircrew Tactics Studies/Mobility Electronic Combat Officer Course, the Mobility Commanders Tactics Course, the Advanced Airlift Mobility Intelligence Course, the International Mobility Intelligence Course and the Mobility Datalink Managers Course.
All activities, which are conducted daily at the AATTC, as well as the support activities provided by the 139th Airlift Wing, are costed and reimbursed as allowed by the AATTC/FM.
Across the financial spectrum, AATTC financiers have to be well versed on all funding streams available and the legalities of executing this vast mission.
The final two aircraft (of the original 38) should remain stationed at the AATTC in Missouri, as proposed in option one, but should bed down before the last 12 in order to begin training in innovative tactics for the previous 24 aircraft and their aircrews (see table 2).
Instead of adding a 10th C-27J unit at a new location, the Guard should apportion the remaining four aircraft to the AATTC, increasing it to a six-PAA C-27J squadron and, in effect, creating a "10th" squadron.
