Like ShyTorque I was let loose, on task, by the RAF as a Single pilot Captain ( with an experienced crewman) on the Wessex 2 after the usual RAF fixed wing training and helicopter training/conversion. I had about 95 hrs on The Whirlwind 10 (single engine turbine) followed by about 82 hrs on the Wessex (twin turbine). I can still remember vividly the EX Spearpoint of 1976 where I began 36 yrs of productive flying service!!
