Piss take ????

No Arclite, absolutely not ! Even though 15 will come back, they will only fly until circa 2019 and that's it. The fleet will be conventional Gliders only thereafter, too bloody dangerous having Cadets taught to go solo with an engine ! and besides they have to work all day at a conventional Viking VGS to earn their short launches whereas at a Vigilant equipped VGS huge productivity results from a small team.
