“We currently have the smallest Air Force in our nation’s modern history with a shortage of more than 1,000 pilots and only 4 out of over 50 Air Force squadrons that are fully qualified,” said Senator Tillis. “We are at a time when we need strong leadership in the Air Force and I appreciate Dr. Wilson taking on the important task and I look forward to supporting her nomination.”
