ACS to stay under AETC

TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- The 325th Air Control Squadron is scheduled to be the only squadron within Tyndall's 325th Fighter Wing to remain under Air Education and Training Command after the wing transitions to Air Combat Command. "We are staying with the current command because we are an initial skills training course and that falls under the mission of AETC," said Lt. Col. Gary Smith, 325th ACS commander. The squadron graduates around 150 students a year, with a course length of nine months. The squadron will change its name to the 337th Air Control Squadron two days after the 325th FW transitions to the ACC. (Source: 325th Fighter Wing Public Affairs, 09/05/12)
