The USAF has responded to the coming budget cuts with this summary.
-Possible furlough of civilian workers.
-Laying off 3200 employees that do not work in “mission critical” areas.
-Cutback on weapons orders: F-35, C-130 etc.
-Restructure of new tanker program.
-30 weapons systems face “reduced maintenance”.
-Affects sustainment of sat-com assets.
-8 hour days on ground radar sites vs. 24 hours.
Another source mentioned that B-52 flying hours would be cut by 10 percent: effective immediately. Expect other airframe communities to do similar.
And with the current DC climate, it appears there will be "no parole from the governor."
How does this affect air supremacy? The F-35 is basically useless for the USAF. And the F-22 needs a serious replacement (more on that later).
USAF cost per-flying-hour for their inventory isn't good either.
Not mentioned is a big piece of low-hanging fruit: the excess number of flag ranks and SES.
