Support: Outsourcing Pilot Training


p> December 10, 2007: Outsourcing of military training continues. France has awarded a $589 million contract to a civilian firm, for the basic training of military helicopter pilots. The contractor will supply 20,000 flying hours for students, instructors, and get students to achieve specific levels of student performance. This will be done more cheaply than when the military was running the operation, and will free military instructor pilots for regular service. The civilian firm will basically run the French Army's helicopter school. This facility provides initial helicopter pilot training. With the new deal, the civilian contractors will provide training helicopters, and other equipment.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
