Yes indeed. Should be doing practice intercepts over the North Sea, not actually doing a job. After all, when they get the once in a generation chance to splash another aircraft they need to be...

Just to clarify the above. I’ve flown LOX, GOX and OBOGS. I’ve flown clean shaven and with a (tatty attempt at) a beard. I’ve had smoke and fumes. I’ve ‘toggled down’ in anger; but I really, really...

LJ - it appears that we agree; no one has yet scientifically quantified the risk.

LJ,

Deliberately being pedantic - but that link takes me to a page that simply says (at the bottom) that it is impossible to achieve a good seal with facial hair - not how this was found out, how...

Has anyone ever actually done leak and flow checks with and without a beard on O2 masks, firefighting BA or CBRN rig? In the sense that a report would be available identifying the actual (if any)...

I may have misunderstood but wouldn’t the sign off to which you refer in your first para be conducted after the display flying work up was complete?
