Thanks for the offer of a PM but I am pretty clear on the report and the journalist's summary. My original quote above remains factual and having digested the linked report I should have probably written it in bold type.

The report states that:

"...as an E-2C pilot, the IP had no exposure to low altitude flying in previous tours, and very limited exposure in this tour. The syllabus used to train him and the oversight it proscribed did not properly prepare him to instruct in the low altitude environment."

Seems like they can and that the USN believes this contributed to the accident.

Your brashness is rather quaint but please excuse me if I don't join in.
