Chinook,

That comes as a bit of a suprise, but does make sense. Would 25 hours on gliders put someone into the advanced stream? I've got no prior experience in powered aircraft so I'll admit to...

Nope. But I have been put on for an OSB at ADFA for ACO in three weeks, should be interesting. Looks as though I'll have to wait a bit longer for a shot at a FSP. Just means more gliding in the...

The past few weeks have seemed pretty messy, by the looks of it I'd say a few egos have come to clash. I'd like to think that its still no good cause to disregard the past 6 months although it may be...

Thats a bit of a relief although you'd think that the FSP instructors would want a medical class 1 rather than the class 3M.
