Abstract : Pilot retention continues to be a serious problem across the entire spectrum of the Air Force. The Tactical Air Command (TAC), in particular, is losing tremendous sources of expertise due to the lowering retention rate. This study examines the current problem and relates it to the previous retention problem that existed in the late 1970s. It looks at possible lessons learned and how they may need to be applied today a long with more drastic measures to curb the downward retention rate. Those measures include significant increases in flight pay and bonuses coupled with aggressive 'people' programs. Air Force leadership will play a key role in solving the retention problem.
