My husband is a P-3 pilot and was two flights away from being PPC qualified when he was threatened with a FNAEB due to lack to situational awareness. In a fair world I think he has alot of arguments and quite possibly could beat this thing. But the P-3 is on its last leg and the squadrons are overmanned. And his squadron has a deadline to cut 3 pilots by July. So they are presuring him to Volununtary Terminate his flight status and in return he will get a good fit. rep. out of here and a co's recomendation for the November Lateral Transfer board. If he loses his FNAEB he will get a bad fit rep., no recommendation and have to sit in general aviation for a year before he could even go to a lateral transfer board. We have no one we can talk to about all this and get straight answers. He has just over 5 years so we have to stay in but I'm also afraid that even if he was picked up on this lateral transfer board that he would be behind on this fit. reps compared to his year group (00'). My husband was prior enlisted on subs. in the nuc. prog. then ROTC and now 5 years winged. He's a great officer and a good ( but not the best) pilot. We are now desperate... Going on a week and a half with no sleep mostly because we don't have answers. Looking for Anwers.
