So can anyone tell me what the role is?

Who did it before Ops Officers and what are those peole doing now?
Well, if my memory serves me right, the Ops Off role was performed by an experienced aircrew chap who was either unable or had simply chosen to take some time off flying (yes - we used to have that capacity)
Out of that grew an infinitely better understanding of Flt Ops and of the crews' requirements.

With the demise of many legacy platforms, we must surely now be looking for jobs for a host of experienced Navs and AEOps who could add the much needed direction to the Flt Ops world.

I won't mention the Sqn OpsO who got sent home from an Op after a week as he was getting in the way of his Sgt ..oh, i just did!
