And how long would it be before SNCO pilots look at the Officer pay scales and wonder why they are not getting the same basic or flying pay?

Lowering or capping(PAS) Officer Aircrew wages would have a knock on to recruitment and retention

Why go through all that flying training for 75% of the wages and 25% of the flying pay - just accept that you are better off being an officer - if you didn't make the grade at OASC that's the selection process!

Commissioning of NCA has been re-established to back fill various gapped or empty SO2/SO3 posts around the bazaars.

With the demise of C130K, VC10 and Tristar plus the possible cancellation of MRA4 and A400M the question is do we need NCA at all???

Surely SH crewman could just be airman much along the lines of various other air forces/armies - after all they fulfill much the same job as a Lynx door-gunner
