Abstract:

In 1979, the Chief of Staff of the US Army CSA made the decision to realign Career Management Field 67, Enlisted Aviation Maintenance CMF 67 due to problems in morale, maintenance standards, training deficiencies and other major problems within the enlisted aviation community. These problems were having a severe impact on retention of qualified aviation maintenance personnel and it was apparent that something had to be done to fix the system. When fully implemented, the realignmentrestructure would affect over 2,500 enlisted soldiers within the enlisted aviation career field. The study leading up to this decision and the problems encountered in implementing the CSA guidance along with lessons learned and recommendations for future realignments will be the main thrust of this essay. This essay, by use of the historical method of research, provides the history of CMF 67 prior to the restructure as well as the problems encountered during each major phase of the realignment.
