Surely the new pilots have LOTS of experience of formation flying, so why the big deal?
Secondly, why on eath. do the blues need to swin 4 lengrhs of a pool in a flying suit ?

In my day, dinghy drill, the training was to board your dinghy attached
, to your life jacket, supported by your Mae West, and an in immersion suit. Etc.,

No swimming required !
You obviously retired before the PTIs got their hands on the currency checklists!!
