Title: AEF Rotation Schedule

Action: Screen begins with a graphic representing AEF rotational cycles 3 and 4. It shows which AEFs are responsible for being the combat leads, the bomber group leads, AEWs and LMWs.

Voice: This graph shows the rotational cycle for each of the paired AEFs. It also shows the lead wings and lead mobility wings for each rotational cycle. This rotational construct enables AEF members to know when they are in the window for deployment, when they will be in spin-up for deployment, and when they will be in normal duty status. Hence, members can plan their lives accordingly. The 15-month schedule, Total Force integration, and the force management rules should provide tempo predictability and stability for AEF members.
