Your Trek bias is showing they are not starships they are fast space craft and the Air Force is very capable in flying fast craft thank you!
The Air Force has little to no experience with large crews, carrier ops, or fleet warfare.

Also, if you want to look at the well know space pioneers, most of them were naval aviators.
Is that "large crew" as in feeding the large guns of a battleship? I say it is little different then the heavy bombers formations of WWII . I haven't seen task forces, squadrons and fleets of earth vessels on Stargate myself however.

And how many of the scientist/test pilot/aviators actually went back to the Navy and commanded a ship or worked in a fleet with the "large crews, carrier operations (say department head) and fleet tactics"? Or in fact did any of that work before beginning astronaut training? At NASA how was an aviator any different from a pilot?
