"The backbone of military aviation will always be rotary, and tactical airpower must remain in the hands of ground commanders. Fixed-wind costs too much to do too little- I see no reason to waste any more taxpayers' money on the Petrel strike-fighter program when we could spend that on helicopter-launched missile systems. These birds represent better value and can do everything we need, and do it better in most cases- transport, combat, observation, maritime, and special forces. We do not need to fragment our defense strategy by creating a separate air force."
— Lombard, testifying before the COG Defense Select Committee

General Jod Lombard was a Gear officer who later retired and became a board member of the helicopter manufacturer Aiglar.
