The U.S. Navy has announced the fiscal year (FY) 2018 Full Time Support (FTS) Aviation Command Retention Bonus (ACRB). FTS ACRB program provides those who screen for aviation command a bonus of $100,000 in exchange for three years of service following their commanding officer (CO) tour. The FY 2018 FTS ACRB shifts from a two-year, $36,000 total contract to a three-year, $100,000 total contract. Like the Active Component ACRB, FTS COs who were in command in FY 2017 and accepted the FY 2017 ACRB, are eligible to renegotiate for the FY 2018 ACRB program.
