The U.S. Navy announced the FY-19 full-time support (FTS) aviation command retention bonus (ACRB). The bonus incentivizes highly talented naval aviators and naval flight officers to choose to remain for a post-command commander tour. All FY-19 ACRB contracts will be worth $100,000. Eligible officers will receive an initial payment of $34,000 and two anniversary payments of $33,000. Participation in the FY-19 ACRB obligates officers to three years of obligated service to include full completion of a post-command commander tour, which may last between 24 and 36 months, depending on assignment.
