Abstract : Pilot retention has traditionally been a problem for the services, especially when the airlines are hiring. This paper looks at the retention problem; its causes and some of the attempted cures. The Navy's aviation continuation bonus, instituted to deal with low retention is analyzed and its pulses and minuses are discussed. Comparisons with Air Force retention are made, both in low and high airlines hiring periods. Conclusions are reached and recommendations are made concerning retention incentives.
