Interesting, history repeats itself; In 1940 they could replace an aircraft overnight but the Pilots were a different matter.
Kenley (615) is probably in a better position for drawing in staff, plus has a civvy club on the same field, but 626 has no nearby units and is situated in an isolated position on the Lizard peninsular. There is a Navy GSA at Culdrose, so that may be able to help. Am I correct that there will be no CGI's in the future, and are staff cadets still drawn from former solo cadets who have already done advanced training.
