The article does not go into the possible reasons for such a horrible retention rate, I was wondering if some of the ATS members might have decent
theories or inside knowledge?
According to the article:
DuHadway said he suspects frequent deployments and high operational tempo are the main issues, because many of the pilots eligible for the bonus
started their operational careers in 2001.
Are you saying the author of the article offers nothing besides those points?
For what it's worth, they are probably leaving for the same reasons that folks have been leaving the military. Long hours, bad pay (for the amount
of work involved), time away from family, decreased fun, and scared of Obama being elected.
Perhaps we will see the numbers go up, or plummet after the elections?
