    C-130 Changes

    Col Penny

    Attention All Hands,


    The past year or so we have sought to bring qualified pilots to the C-130 airframe to be made available for jump training and jump missions. This has been fraught with issues, which required change, including some we are making today.


    Effective immediately:


    The F-35 Detachment will assume full responsibility for the C-130 in addition to the F-35.  They will train on both aircraft, crew both aircraft, and any requests for C-130 participation will be addressed to them.

    -The requirements for the qualification will be eliminated. Instead, the C-130 SPP material will now be added in with the F-35 material, and all future pilots for this detachment will automatically receive both qualifications. Current pilots will be required to conduct 5 solo hours on the aircraft to complete their dual qualification. 


    If a request for a C-130 is made and 

    -no Green Knights sign up,

    -or no Green Knights are available the day of;
    than anyone holding a qualification from ACE may fly the aircraft in their place, regardless of the airframe(s) they have qualified on, active/reserve status, or current billeting. 


    Any questions may refer to their CoC.
