Air Education and Training Command’s Spark Tank 2021 submission window is now open and Airmen with innovative ideas that can help the U.S. Air Force sustain a competitive advantage are welcome to submit. From now until midnight October 16, 2020, all AETC Airmen are encouraged to submit ideas they believe may make significant impacts on Air Force missions within six to 24 months. Spark Tank ideas must be submitted using the U.S. Air Force Ideation Platform at https://usaf.ideascalegov.com/.
In Air Education and Training Command, the Second Air Force is transforming the way Airmen learn. One example of how is through the re-evaluation of direct duty assignments for qualified personnel. Take the case of Airman 1st Class Emily Perina, an enlisted physical therapy assistant assigned to the 56th Medical Group became the first Airman to complete Basic Military Training and direct transfer to her first duty station, Luke Air Force Base, bypassing technical training.
