Col Joseph Lenertz I dont think they considered that they would attract a whole different pool of people, like the high school to flight school program did with the Army. Yes, they are correct that the typical four year university graduate would be disincentivized from pursuing a career and flying as a Warrant.

Having flight only (Like Limited Duty Officers) would injure the service in having people pursue leadership. How would that impact the perceived leadership problems observed in recent op-ed pieces? Why would anybody pursue a leadership role if they could just keep flying, no other significant responsibilities and still retire as a Lieutenant Colonel. hell, where do I sign up?

MSgt (Join to see) i am really surprised that the service got rid of them. Maintenance is probably the best example of where it pays to have technical experts that are officers.

MSgt (Join to see) - it could....the Army being the 'backward cousin' of the Air Force already has them....although I think they might be there to ride herd on all these off the street direct commission people
