I'm not sure if the AT world still has training issues, but it was very difficult to get any non-operational training in a few years back.

OFBSLF, I'm not 100% certain where the assumption that C17 training is more expensive than A400 training came from, however, as I said in my previous post, it's not down to cost of training.

So the RAF can afford to rent or purchase A400 simulators, but not to rent more or purchase C17 simulators? You can afford to set up A400 training, but not C17 training? Why would the cost for one be...
