原文:

AFSOC ordered the suspension in last December to allow officials to inspect associated equipment and review safety procedures. After a hiatus of nearly five months, Air Force Special Operations Command has reinstated parachute, dive and mountaineering training for its special warfare operators.

AFSOC spokeswoman Maj. Amanda Reeves said that as of May 1, 2020, all units can now resume the training, halted in the wake of two special tactics airmen deaths in last fall.

'AFSOC has now recertified all of its units to conduct parachuting, diving, and mountaineering operations,' she stressed. 'Due to operational sensitivities surrounding AFSOC's capabilities and readiness status, we cannot provide an exact number of units affected by the recertification process.'

中譯:

美國空軍特戰指揮部去年12月下令暫停訓練,以讓官員檢查相關裝備,並審查安全程序。訓練中斷近5個月後,該部恢復所屬特戰隊員跳傘、潛水及登山等訓練。

該部發言人瑞夫斯少校表示,2名特種戰術技術士,去年秋季因意外殉職後而中止的訓練,自2020年5月1日起,所有單位即刻恢復實施。

她強調,美國空軍特戰指揮部目前已對所屬單位完成重新認證,可執行跳傘、潛水及登山訓練。鑑於事涉該部能力及戰備狀態等作戰敏感性問題,無法提供受到認證程序影響的確切單位總數。
