    Before they “hit the ground running” at basic military training, future members of the 931st Air Refueling Wing often get a test run at the Development and Training Flight.

    The program, which was founded at McConnell more than seven years ago, is a Reserve program which helps prepare future Airmen for BMT and assists them with making the transition from civilian to military life.

    Since 2018, Tech. Sgt. Travis Hallinger, the 931 ARW D&TF chief, has lead the program at McConnell. Hallinger, a Traditional Reservist who works for the Wichita Police Department, joined the D&TF because he saw it as an opportunity to have a positive impact on people.

    TSGT HALLINGER: I'M TECH SGT HALLINGER. I AM CURRENTLY ASSIGNED TO THE 931ST AIR REFUELING WING AS THE DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING FLIGHT CHIEF. THE DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING FLIGHT IS A PROGRAM THAT STARTED ROUGHLY IN 2009 TO PREPARE CITIZEN AIRMEN FOR THE TRANSITION FROM CIVILIAN TO MILITARY LIFE. BASICALLY THE GOALS ARE TO GET THEM PREPARED FOR WHAT TO EXPECT AT BMT AND TECH SCHOOL MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY. WITH THE PROGRAM HERE AT MCCONNELL, I PRETTY MUCH START WITH A BASIC FOUNDATION OF THE EXPECTATIONS FROM OF WHAT I WANT FROM THEM AS A FLIGHT. FIRST AND FOREMOST ITS JUST A POSITIVE ATTITUDE TO LEARN, MOTIVATION TO BE HERE AND SHOW UP ON TIME AND HAVE AN INTEREST IN THE ACTIVITIES THAT ARE PRESENTED BEFORE THEM. BEYOND THAT, WE GO OVER BASIC CUSTOMS AND COURTESIES, DRESS AND APPEARANCE STANDARDS, POSITIONS OF ATTENTION, BASIC FACING MOVEMENTS, JUST A PRECURSOR TO WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO EXPERIENCE SO IT'S NOT COMPLETELY FOREIGN TO THEM WHEN THEY GET TO BMT AND HAVE THAT INITIAL SHOCK TO THEIR SYSTEM. FROM WHAT I'VE SEEN THE PAST TWO YEARS OF DOING THIS POSITION IT'S JUST HAVING THE KNOWLEDGE BASE OF HOW TO DO CERTAIN FUNCTIONS IN THE MILITARY AND ALSO HOW TO HAVE OR USE THE RESOURCES WE HAVE AT MCCONNELL TO BALANCE CIVILIAN AND MILITARY LIFE
