Summary:Prior to its involvement with the Iraqi air force in 2004, the US Air Force (USAF) was relatively inexperienced in helping to create an air force for a partner nation. Usually the partner nation would already have an air force and the requisite infrastructure--only needing better airplanes, more training, or additional spare parts for the equipment already on hand. None of those conditions were present in Iraq when the Coalition Military Advisory Transition Team (CMATT) was tasked to create an air corps for what the Coalition Provisional Authority called the New Iraqi Army.--Provided by publisher.
