Abstract:

This thesis examines the value of keeping an expert in the field of aviation maintenance, the aviation logistician, in the Armys list of officer specialties. The evidence indicates that there is a need for expertise in the aviation maintenance field to adequately perform in aviation logistician coded positions. The thesis analyzes whether it is in the Armys best interest to maintain the aviation logistician specialty. The value of this study lies in its advice to the Army aviation community should the Army maintain the aviation logistician specialty The author believes the answer to that question is a conclusive yes. It is the authors strongest recommendation that an aviation maintenance officer specialty in some form be kept in place to provide the Army with the needed level of expertise in these highly technical and demanding positions. The author has great doubt that the system chosen for implementation by the Army will solve the problems with the aviation logistician specialty. The system does however have merit, and the author strongly recommends that it should be given the Army aviation communitys strongest support. In the event that the new system fails, the author strongly recommends implementation of a system similar to the Navys Limited Duty Officer system.
