Mid-career Air Force aviators have been told that they aren’t wanted — meaning they have seen it in writing from Major General Ed Thomas, Commander, Air Force Recruiting Service, Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas:
“We simply can no longer afford for significant segments of our society to be underrepresented in our U.S. Air Force or our newest branch, the U.S. Space Force. …In all, 86 percent of our aviators are white males. Less than 3 percent of our fighter pilots are females. The mission … is to bring a singular focus to recruiting qualified women and minorities who have not always felt they belonged.”.
