    The Ranking System


    The squadron has 2 different types of ranking. There is a ranking for the standard Airmen and a ranking system for the Officers (to be put in effect later).

      Airman Ranks


      The Airman ranks are determined based on skill, attendance and experience. The higher ranked personnel are the most skilled pilots of the squadron.

    Ranks

    Officers Ranks

    The Officers Ranks are dealt to officers only (Co., Xo., To., Cp.,....). They determine the leadership structure of the squadron. The Co. holds the rank of Colonel. The Xo may be a Lt.Col or a Colonel. The other officers, like the Chief of Personnel and the Training Officer, are given the ranks of Major. All flight leaders are given the rank of Captain and they choose 2 assistant flight leaders. These two assistants become the Lt1 and Lt2. The Lt1 is superior in rank to the Lt2 and therefore will become Flight Leader in case the current Fl is absent on a given squad night.

    Promotions


    Airman Promotions


      Cadet is the entrance rank of the squadron they are on a trial basis with the Squad and are NOT verified as permanent members. The exception to this rule is; if an Ace from another squad defects they will begin at the Senior Airman class (Unless otherwise specified by the CO). Cadets must endure a trial period. The trial period will be in the amount of 3 squad nights. If the Cadet does not show without an explanation he will be placed on a "waiting list" where he must wait for a period of two weeks before he will be alowed to attend another squad night. Once accepted the cadet is promoted to the Airman class. When they have reached the Airman class they are officially squad members and are given the arm patch to wear alongside their handle. Further promotion requests are sent in by the Flight Leader, the Chief of Operations and the Chief of Personnel explaining why they feel a promotion is earned. It is then sent for final review to the Co.(s) and Xo.(s), who will have a final vote on Promotion\Demotion. All decisions are final.

      Officer Promotions
