Scott AFB and Fort Leonard Wood start furloughs

Monday, 08 July 2013 11:54 Published in Local News

   Today is the start of unpaid furloughs for about 4,500 civilian employees at Scott Air Force Base in the Metro East. 

    For most workers at Scott Air Force Base--the 11 furlough days are being spread out in one-day-a-week increments for 11 weeks with many civilian workers opting for a 3-day weekend.   

      Lt. Korey Fratini tells the St. Louis Post Dispatch although the furlough days have been spread out it's still costing workers two weeks' pay. So, the base is offering financial and budgeting advice. Work normally done by furloughed workers are being picked up by remaining employees.

   Also,  Fort Leonard Wood in south-central Missouri is furloughing about 3,400 civilian workers under a similar 11-week process.

     The furloughs are part of the sequester cost-cutting deal hammered out by the Obama Administration and Congress for the current fiscal year. 

 

Scott AFB pilots test out cockpit iPads

Monday, 08 July 2013 11:04 Published in Local News

  MASCOUTAH, Ill. (AP) - Pilots at a southwestern Illinois Air Force base are decluttering cockpits, swapping pounds of paper maps and bulky flight manuals for iPads Minis.

   The Belleville News-Democrat reports the experiment involves C-21A planes at Scott Air Force Base.

   Typically, each plane has about 50 pounds of paper on board, including maps, navigational charts and flight manuals. The printouts must be replaced every two months because they're continually updated.

   That costs money: about $25,000 a year in printing costs alone, plus the additional fuel that's consumed because of the weight.

   Maj. Jared Detloff is one of the pilots testing the 11 ounce tablet, which he velcros to a control yolk in the cockpit. He says there's been a learning curve to using the tablet, but so far it has been well-received.
