Brian Parra, a satellite systems operator, has completed flight engineer training, matching his desire for a new challenge with the Air Force’s need to fill positions in critically manned career fields. “A big drive for me was to go into something that was critically manned, in addition to it already being something I wanted to do,” he said.
