Chief Master Sgt. Carla King, superintendent of the Recruit the MTI Team, is leading the effort
to find new MTIs for the next century. Senior airmen who will
commit to a second enlistment, through master sergeants with less
than 16 years of total active service are eligible.
Most concerns about MTI duty are based on misconceptions or fear
of the unknown, King said. This job is filled with solid rewards
for people who are independent, career-minded, highly motivated,
and who want to have a hand in molding tomorrows Air Force.
MTIs receive up to $275 per month in special duty assignment pay,
$194 in additional clothing allowance to upgrade uniforms, free
dry cleaning, a stabilized four-year tour with the option to extend,
assignment priority upon completing a tour, and the opportunity
to supervise up to 60 trainees at any given time. They also gain
valuable leadership and supervisory experience, which is normally
reserved for higher-ranking individuals.
