125 retired pilots, other rated officers apply to return to Air Force to lend a hand
By: Stephen Losey   11 hours ago
 

The Air Force says 125 retired pilots, combat systems officers and air battle managers have applied to return to active duty since May.

The Air Force is trying to bring back officers under the Voluntary Retired Return to Active Duty program to help alleviate serious manning shortages in the pilot and other rated career fields. Last May, the service announced a major expansion of the VRRAD program, and said as many as 1,000 recently retired officers could return.

But far fewer retirees have applied, according to statistics provided by the Air Force. Of the 125 total applicants, 50 are pilots. The Air Force has so far approved 42 applications, and are still processing the others.
