AIR FORCE - AFI 10-4301 VOL 3
AIR ADVISING OPERATIONS
|Publication Date:||14 December 2020|
This instruction addresses USAF air advising operations conducted in support of geographical combatant commander (GCC) operation plans, theater campaign plans (TCPs), bi- or multi-lateral exercises, and GCC country plans.
These air advising operations are primarily documented in the Air Force campaign support plan (CSP), the TSOC CSP, the specific COMAFFOR country plans, and United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) country support plans.
When directives and tasks assigned in this instruction conflict with specific guidance from the GCC to Air Force Forces (AFFOR) staffs, GCC guidance takes precedence.
This instruction expands upon guidance contained in SC related AFIs to encompass the larger air advising community and establish a common framework to better synchronize a wide range of USAF air advising operations. References to related AFIs are made throughout this instruction for completeness and consistency.
Detailed air advising procedures and checklists in Air Force Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (AFTTP) 3-4.5, Air Advising, should be used in conjunction with this AFI.
Air Advisors should consult AFI 10-421, Operations Planning for the Steady-State, for specific planning, execution, and assessment guidance related to country, event, and training/capacity plans.
