About AETC Innovation

Developing a world-class culture of innovation is key to the Air Force sustaining a competitive advantage.  The reason why innovation is so important to AETC, and our Air Force, is that it is about mission effectiveness in the way we train and educate our Airman throughout their careers, enhancing their lethality and readiness by developing them with the needed competencies and skillsets for their follow-on to their operational units, Air Force warfighting requirements, and Joint Force commanders’ needs.

Creative approaches, innovation, resources and execution at the speed of relevance are required to sharpen our competitive edge. The advantage will go to those who create the best technologies and who integrate and field them in creative operational ways that provide military advantages

Through new programs like Pilot Training Next, which is using virtual and augmented reality technology to study how Airmen learn more rapidly, AETC is embracing a culture of innovative thinkers who are emboldened to always look for better ways to complete the mission.
