Abstract:

This report summarizes the results of an analysis of an Air Force occupational survey of the Aircraft Loadmaster specialty AFS 114X0. For the most part, 114X0 personnel performed the full range of technical loadmaster functions, regardless of their job. Airdrop was the only technical area not included in the jobs of most Aircraft Loadmasters. The rescue and recovery personnel were the only loadmasters not involved in the total range of tasks performed by most 114X0 personnel. As loadmasters progressed in skill level and Time in Career Field TICF, they acquired supervisory and training responsibilities e.g., flight examiner, aircrew instructor, supervisor, in addition to their primary aircrew duties. Variations in specialty jobs, then, were a result of aircraft, mission, and seniority-level differences. Based on the survey data, a few areas of the career ladder job descriptions and training documents should be reviewed and refined by subject-matter specialists. Overall, this survey did not reveal any serious problems with the 114X0 specialty. Author
