Marine Corps Commandant Issues 24-Hour Operational Reset, No Flight Operations
ARLINGTON, Va. — Gen. Robert B. Neller, commandant of the Marine Corps, directed U.S. Marine Corps aviation units to conduct an operational reset for a 24-hour period where no flight operations will take place but no operational commitments will be impacted, the service said in a Aug. 14 release.
This operational reset will occur within the next two weeks and be taken at the discretion of commanders, based on their unit’s operational commitments, to focus on the fundamentals of safe flight operations, standardization, and combat readiness. The intent is for flying squadrons to review selected incidents which occurred enterprise-wide and study historical examples of completed investigations to bring awareness and best practices to the fleet.
Pauses in operations are not uncommon and are viewed as a responsible step to refresh and review best practices and procedures so our units remain capable, safe, and ready.
