Some units, by fluke of geography, are getting more, it's true.

And there are these "experience days" where cadets get 15 minutes in a Chinook once a year, which while nice, don't come close to replicating the time they used to get only a few years ago actually flying and taking control.

But considering the size of the air cadets versus the size of the RAF, its not all that surprising. What is surprising is the continued propaganda being spouted by HQAC with regards to it all. If they were more honest about the reality of the situation there'd be a lot less animosity towards them.
