This thesis presents a computer aided analysis of the effects of implementing the requirements of the Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defense Reorganization Act on the career paths of U.S. Navy Tactical Aviation (TACAIR) pilots and naval flight officers. The method of TACAIR community data collation, and the user interactive personnel flow forecasting model, FORECASTER, are thoroughly documented. In the analysis, the FORECASTER model is run through several iterations, each iteration devoted to satisfying the next lower priority billet requirements, beginning with Joint Duty Assignments and ending with "soft" shore duty billets. The effects of each iteration is carefully examined to assess any positive or negative effect on the TACAIR community. The results of this analysis shows a deterioration of warfighting skills of TACAIR field grade officers, and a decreased ability to fill "soft" billets from the TACAIR community.
