Default Air Force Logo Air Force travelers reminded of flat rate per diem policy (update)
Some Air Force travelers may not be aware of a flat rate per diem policy established a few years ago that focused on extended temporary duty travel. Congress instituted the flat rate in November 2014. The new policy reduced per diem from 100 percent to 75 percent for TDYs from 31 to 180 days and to 55 percent for TDYs over 180 days. What this means is for a traveler whose TDY runs 31 to 180 days in length, the entire TDY per diem is paid at 75 percent. For a traveler whose TDY runs more than 180 days, the entire TDY per diem is paid at 55 percent.

Deployable landing system gives pilots global reach
Airmen with the 46th Test Squadron at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, worked for several months to learn the setup process and basic maintenance of the D-ILS system. Their efforts will help standardize the setup checklists all air traffic control systems Airmen will use assembling D-ILS units around the globe. Developed runways have permanent systems, but undeveloped runways sometimes have no electronic landing system capability. D-ILS provides instrument landing capabilities where they never existed, or where they have been degraded by enemy action or natural disasters. It facilitates humanitarian relief operations and supports the 24-hour, 365-day potential operational footprint of the U.S. Air Force.
