Currently there are efforts to convert existing paper technical manuals for the C-17 weapon system that will not only save money but reduce man hours, creating further efficiencies across the Air Force.

The C-17 Combined Program Office at Robins, in partnership with Boeing, is working to implement the first ever (complete maintenance set) C-17 S1000D-compliant interactive electronic technical manual, IETM, for use by aircraft maintainers in the U.S.

The C-17 pilot project, which began in 2007, will be the first weapon system in the Air Force to use the new IETM. Other weapon systems such as the C-5 and KC-46 are in the early stages of development based on the C-17's achievement. There are no plans yet to use the IETM with foreign military sales partners.

Recent bad weather stalled roadwork at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Gate, though most construction projects around Robins remained unaffected by the inclement weather.

How Much Did That Drink Cost You?

This post was originally published by Moody Air Force Base - Moody News

February 13, 2014 in Georgia, Moody Air Force Base by clevine

An arrest for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) can cost you big. Whether an Airman is caught offbase or onbase, the impacts can greatly affect one's career. Automatically, on-base driving privileges will be revoked for a year. And the consequences only begin there.

If arrested off-base, people may face points against his or her license, fees and jail time. As a first-time offense, Georgia punishes DUI convictions with a fine of $300 to $1,000, imprisonment for 10 to 364 days, at least 40 hours of community service, completion of a DUI risk reduction program and a period of probation.
