Home page feature image dec18In December our guest speaker was Major General Kevin Huyck. Maj Gen Huyck is the Director of Operations, Headquarters Air Combat Command. He is responsible to the Commander, ACC, on all matters pertaining to the direct operational planning, training, command and control functions needed to deploy and employ regular and Reserve component combat air forces, including more than 1,900 aircraft. Maj Gen Huyck spoke about a very wide range of topics from across all aspects of the Air Force. As well, he also spoke to many of challenges he faces at the ACC levels and personally. Some of his highlights and priorities are:
  • "It’s often easy to repair a problem, but very difficult to plan to avoid problems 20 years down the road.”
  • His challenge is to train airmen and equip them for the fight ahead which changes in nature literally every day.
  • The Air Force squadron is the foundation to any mission and they need to be supported.
  • Readiness is key and thanks to CMSAF Wright, USAF has eliminated or reduced a tremendous amount of non-applicable or no longer necessary training requirements so that airmen can focus on the mission at hand and critical training that leads to mission success and promotion.
  • Cyber is the new wave and USAF has to prepare for that or be left behind.
  • Critical to recognize and understand that not everyone learns in the same way or at the same rate. Acknowledging this will allow for more efficient and effective training which will be beneficial to the total force for the long haul.
  • Team effort is key!!!
