Navy Careers Impacted by P-3 Transition
Week of January 19, 2015
The U.S. Navy recently announced career guidance for Naval Aircrewmen (Mechanical) (AWF) and Naval Aircrewmen (Avionics) (AWV) affected by the shift from P-3C Orion to P-8 Poseidon aircraft. Active duty P-3 AWF/AWV Sailors in Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) Codes of 8251 and 9402 should contact their rating detailer either one year from their Projected Rotation Date or their squadron’s transition conference, whichever happens first. Sailors will work with their detailer to determine open jobs among aircraft type and aircrew positions, along with lateral conversion choices to other ratings and options for separation from the service. Details on the conversion process can be found on the Navy Personnel Command website at www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/career/enlistedcareeradmin/Pages/AcduConv.aspx. Sailors may also contact Capt. Bruce “Des” Deshotel, Head Enlisted Community Manager (ECM) at firstname.lastname@example.org, and Cmdr. Donald Gaines, Deputy ECM at email@example.com.
