UH60L-IP Posted October 26, 2013 Report Share Posted October 26, 2013 Here's some information concerning AFS (Army Fleet Support), which in basic terms refers to the civilians that support flying activities at Fort Rucker - fueling, maintenance, etc. Between 250-300 AFS workers (of the current ~3000 person workforce or 10%) are expecting their layoff notices the day before Christmas exodus. Why? Because the fiscal year 2014 budget is expected to reduce the Fort Rucker flying hours from the planned 250,000 hours to right at 200,000. That is a 20% reduction in flying hours at Fort Rucker alone, in just one fiscal year. Take it for what it is worth. I'm not trying to draw any conclusions from the info but I'm sure you can. Here's a couple of links to the applicable sources, released yesterday: http://www.dothaneagle.com/news/article_d33b445e-3de0-11e3-a6a7-001a4bcf6878.html http://www.iam2003.org/layoff-information/ 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
