retirement with pay.

Captains who were promoted during FY-17 will be looked at for their first
gate and FTS Captains who were promoted during FY-14 will be looked at for
their second gate. In line with reference (a), second gate FTS Captains not
selected for retention will retire or be released from active duty no later
than 1 September 2019. In line with reference (b), first gate FTS Captains
not selected for retention will retire or be released from active duty no
later than 1 September 2020. In either case, FTS officers will be retained
on active duty, if necessary, to enable the officer to become eligible for
retirement with pay.
