When implemented correctly and fairly, mentoring serves a useful purpose. However, senior Air Force leadership has fostered an atmosphere where mentoring in the officer corps has been corrupted to nothing more than outright sponsorship, and in some cases, cronyism. This backslide to the good old boy system is, at the very least, causing morale problems among the officers, and at times, is allowing Air Force leadership positions to be filled with people who are not necessarily the most qualified, but instead are the most well-connected.
