Abstract : This study addresses the broad issue of preparing Air Force officers for squadron command. A review of civil and military literature on executive development provided the theoretical framework for the study. A review of squadron commander orientation courses offered by five major commands (AFCC, ATC, MAC, SAC, TAC) provided an insight as to how theory was put into practice. Finally, conclusions were drawn and recommendations made to improve the process of preparing officers for squadron command.
