USAF's "Ready Airman Training" should improve USAF's capability by spreading deployment training over a more extended period instead of squeezing it into the month before deployment.


Rachel S. Cohen writing in DefenseNews, makes the following points:
  • The longtime expeditionary deployment model has been replaced with a systematic approach to allow personnel more time for rest and training between deployments.
  • Four phases, six months for each phase:
    1. Force generation.
    2. Process "reset," "prepare. 
    3. Ready.
    4. Available to commit."
