Air Force and Navy General Officer and Wing commanders waste on average 30~50K a month just to maintain their flight currency so they can continue to receive flight pay even though they will never fly a combat sorite again due to their rank and position. They add additional flight hours to combat jets, cause 2 jets to be taken out of the training cycle (need a backup jet in case the primary is borken) and burn unneeded jet fuel. Suggest removing them from eligibility to receive flight pay once they are in a command billet.
