CSAF's Scope cites maintenance, logistics reorganization

12/13/2007 - SAN ANTONIO (AFPN) -- The Chief of Staff of the Air Force's Scope focuses on current topics the Air Force chief of staff feels are of special importance to today's Airmen.

Gen. T. Michael Moseley's latest CSAF's Scope focuses on the reorganization of wing maintenance and logistics.

"As chief of staff, I'm responsible for organizing, training and equipping our Air Force to be the most lethal fighting organization on the planet. The squadron is the building block of the Air Force structure and must be organized for success. I believe the most effective formula is to structure our squadrons by mission, not by function.

"In a previous Scope I said we would look at reorganizing our squadrons to better prepare for combat. I've taken inputs from across the Air Force from crew chiefs to commanders. To prepare for combat, we train like we fight...so it only makes sense that we should also organize the way we fight. Aircraft maintenance is a vital element of a flying squadron's mission at home or deployed, and the maintainers that generate sorties belong in that chain of command. Accordingly, this coming year we will begin aligning maintenance units responsible for sortie generation together with their flying squadrons in our fighter and combat search and rescue units. I'm still examining options to ensure we have the right organizational solutions for our remaining platforms."
