Do you have to be a Crew Chief before you can cross train into Flight Engineer in the Air Force?

And since it is a air crew job, can you start applying for it early? No

My understanding (I've been out of the AF since 1998) is that you cannot just join the Air Force as a Flight Engineer. You must have 5 - 7 level in an appropriate career field (typically maintenance, load master etc.) and than apply to become a Flight Engineer.

1. You must be prior service from a maintenance AFSC to apply to be a Flight Engineer. 2. It is NOT an entry level AFSC 3. Most of the Flight Engineers are former Crew Chiefs 4. You can apply to cross train as a Flight Engineer after 35 months time in service.
