2006 Highlights: During the year, the unit made significant contributions to Group effort.

Personnel readiness was maintained through nearly 20,000 ancillary training events while our training managers drove an incredible 76% fully qualified career field rate across the group, virtually eliminating overdue actions for upgrade trainees. The MTF also augmented the 437 MXG training function with three Maintenance Qualification Training Program (MQTP) instructors. In addition, the Programs and Resources Flight deftly managed the activation/deactivation processes for the group, maintaining approximately 190 personnel on active duty status throughout the year.
