AbstractHistorical development of Joint Airborne/Air Transportability Training (JA/ATT) during World War II is carried through the program's consolidation under the Military Airlift Command. This provides a foundation for an examination of the present day JA/ATT mission concept and explanation of how the program is managed. This presentation focuses on the interworkings of the airlift system which influence service participation in JA/ATT. A discussion of the major problem areas follows, keying on budgetary pressures, competing airlift demands and equalizing training accomplishment. The study concludes with a number of recommendations on how to enhance the JA/ATT program within existing fiscal constraints. (SDW)
