81st FS activation

Lt. Col. Jeffrey "Growler" Hogan's name is unveiled on the side of an A-29 Super Tucano. Hogan is the newest commander of the 81st Fighter Squadron, which will train Afghan pilots and maintainers at Moody Air Force Base, Ga., through 2018. The A-29 is a light air support training aircraft that will be used to train 30 Afghan pilots and 90 Afghan maintainers as part of a requirement from the International Security Assistance Force to conduct training outside of Afghanistan. The need for the A-29 comes as the current Afghan Air Force LAS aircraft, the Mi-35 attack helicopter, reaches the end of its service life in January 2016.
