By Capt. Ashley Walker 12th Flying Training Wing Public Affairs

The Air Education and Training Command Inspector General announced the 306th Flying Training Group earned an overall grade of 'Excellent' for its 2013 Combined Unit Inspection during an executive outbrief March 11.

The grade includes the inspection of the 306th Flying Training Group and staff elements at U.S. Air Force Academy, Colo., in late February.

"In addition to having a great group commander and great squadron leaders, people at all levels of the organization have remarkable 'Mission Focus' and the entire place permeates with 'Energy'...they really care," wrote Col. Gerald Goodfellow, 12th Flying Training Wing commander said.

In addition to the compliance inspection, the group also underwent other evaluations including an Aircrew Standardization and Evaluation Visit, as well as a Logistics Compliance Assessment Program review.

The purpose of inspections is to validate compliance with Air Force and AETC directives and by law requirements.

Combined Unit Inspection programs were recently implemented by an Air Force headquarters directive, and partners two or more inspections to streamline processes.

Five grades were possible for each inspected area and include, from lowest to highest, Unsatisfactory, Marginal, Satisfactory, Excellent and Outstanding.

The following function was graded Outstanding:
306th FTG Aircraft Maintenance at Pueblo, Colo.

Organizations and functions achieving the grade of Excellent were:

In addition, there was not a single Unsatisfactory or Marginal grade, in the many sub-areas that make up these overall grades.
