We are the team that trains the elite cadre of pilots at the heart of this mighty force. We guide student pilots from the classroom to the flight line. We train and retrain our experienced flyers in the latest systems and newest technology. And to keep them ready at a moment’s notice, we supervise and assist them while they invest hundreds of hours in flight simulator training at the finest facilities in the world.
Our aircraft are as specialized as our mission and require highly trained instructors to prepare pilots to fly them. That’s where we step in. We are pilots ourselves—or former pilots—eager to make our contribution to the success of the Air Force mission, standing shoulder to shoulder with the men and women who patrol and protect the skies.
Unlike our counterparts in business and industry, we at AFCS are committed to something far more important than the bottom line. We work every day in the defense of our nation and the values we hold dear.
To ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation, the Federal Government will take no action to implement or enforce the COVID-19 vaccination requirement pursuant to Executive Order 14043 on Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees. Therefore, to the extent a Federal job announcement includes the requirement that applicants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 pursuant to E.O. 14043, that requirement does not currently apply. Federal agencies may request information regarding the vaccination status of selected applicants for the purposes of implementing other workplace safety protocols, such as protocols related to masking, physical distancing, testing, travel, and quarantine.
