Keesler Reserve Units to Be Represented at New Orleans Air Show

Air Force Jet Car to Perform

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - October 11, 2007) - Air Force Reserve Recruiters will be interviewing those interested in part-time jobs at Keesler Air Force Base at the N'awlins Air Show, on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28 at the NAS/JRB New Orleans. The Recruiters from Keesler Air Force Base will be available to talk about opportunities with the Air Force Reserve's Weather Reconnaissance Mission, better known as the Hurricane Hunters. These are the crews that fly into developing storms and hurricanes as they approach the coast of the United States, and report on the storms' intensity and direction. The Recruiters will also talk about opportunities with the Flying Jennies, the 815th Airlift Squadron. The Squadron flies the C-130J, the newest transports that move supplies, equipment and troops.

The Air Force Reserve is offering part-time jobs, and there are full-time opportunities as well. Training is available, and in many instances can be applied as credits toward an Associates Degree from the Community College of the Air Force.

All positions in the Air Force Reserve come with excellent benefit packages, with many educational opportunities. This year, there are also new health care packages for individuals and families. The cost of this coverage is substantially less expensive than it is in the private sector.

Air Force Reserve Recruiters will be available at the Air Force Reserve Jet Car booth, where the Jet Car will be on display. Anyone 18 and over interested in a "Ride to the Runway" with the Jet Car is encouraged to sign up for a drawing each day of the show. The winner will become a crew member for the day, will ride out to the runway with the Jet Car Team, and will witness the race between the Jet Car and a plane up close, which is quite a thrill.

The Jet Car Team is proudly supported by the Air Force Reserve, a team of more than 70,000 men and women, who serve to keep America safe.
