AIR FORCE - AFMAN 24-306
OPERATION OF AIR FORCE GOVERNMENT MOTOR VEHICLES
|Publication Date:||9 December 2016|
Military and civilian operators of AF government motor vehicles (GMVs) are required to meet specific qualifications to be certified, know operator responsibilities, and be familiar with the forms that pertain to the operations of AF GMVs. The term "Driver" has been replaced with the term "Operator" throughout this publication. The term driver implies that Airmen are only required to drive the vehicle. Today's military operator does considerably more than just drive. The term operator denotes a level of competence in the safe operation as well as an understanding of the vehicle's capabilities and limitations. This includes an understanding of current sub-components such as technologically advanced communications, navigation, intercom systems, onboard material handling cranes, self-recovery winches, integrated night-vision devices, weapons support systems, onboard electronic diagnostic systems, and load responsibility.
