Enlisted SEAL Team Six Operators Piloted Leased Aircraft According To Founder Richard Marcinko | The Drive

Must Read

In 2016, the late founder of SEAL Team 6, Richard Marcinko gave an interview in which he offered an interesting detail about the inner workings of the original Naval Special Warfare unit. He said that some that some of his men who were not originally pilots trained to become them and his team leased aircraft outside of regular DoD channels.

This was not viewed very favorably by higher ups who Marcinko said preferred officers rather than enlisted men flying and that the planes be owned by the Navy.

Congress ended the program to train enlisted men as pilots in 1948 and the number of naval aviation pilots never exceeded more than a few hundred.

30 years later in Marcinko’s signature renegade style, he leased civilian airplanes and put some “shooters” through flight school. His rationale was simple, he wanted to contain missions within his own unit so that he would feel confident about everyone involved.

  1. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent
    but with pics and videos, this website could certainly be one of the
    greatest in its field. Superb blog!

  2. Very good website you have here but I was
    wondering if you knew of any user discussion forums
    that cover the same topics talked about here?
    I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get advice from other experienced
    people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions,
    please let me know. Thanks a lot!

  3. Большинство из них – карточные игры и варианты рулетки, но есть Монополия и другие популярные развлечения.

  4. I have been surfing online greater than three hours today, but
    I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It’s
    lovely worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right
    content material as you probably did, the internet will be much more helpful
    than ever before.

  5. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog
    post or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the same
    topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you are interested feel
    free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Superb blog by the way!

  6. First of all I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your mind before writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts
    in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

  7. This design is steller! You most certainly know how
    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you
    presented it. Too cool!

  8. Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favorite justification appeared
    to be at the internet the simplest thing to bear in mind of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst people think about issues that they just don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as smartly
    as outlined out the entire thing with no need
    side-effects , folks could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    Thank you
