OK here we go. I am en enlisted guy, sitting in the center seat of a C-130 and have been for 12 years, but now I also have a commercial single and multi rating, with the expectation of obtaining a CFI. I have been in the military for 18 years, so my chances of moving to the right seat are out. I am looking for info on this subject for a research (point paper) to submit to someone that will listen. The military is experiencing a shortage of "qualified" aviators, and the possibility of making an Engineer a WO, moving him to the right seat could happen. By the way, I am in the Marine Corps working on KC-130's.
Any info would be greatly appreciated, and you would be listed as a reference, unless you don't want to be.
