Why don’t pilots stay longer, so that a smaller number of pilots would need training?


The E-3A Component is definitely in favour of longer assignments for pilots. The advantage of this is that each year fewer pilots would need to be trained, which would save money and reduce noise pollution. However, each participating NATO nation makes its own decision on the duration of assignments. The Component cannot influence this decision-making process.
