AF Offers Sabbatical to 40 Airmen

July 31st: A new pilot program will allow up to 40 active duty, Air Force Reserve, and Air National Guard members to take between one and three years of partially-paid time out of uniform to focus on personal and professional pursuits. The Air Force announced the Career Intermission Pilot Program (CIPP), in a July 31st release. “This program offers a few high performing Airmen the opportunity to focus on priorities outside of their military career without having to choose between competing priorities,” said Air Force chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III. More information can be found here.
