Ascent UK MFTS

One has to remember that 4 Sqn is a success despite Ascent, not because of them. In the TW role, Ascent were (and still are) completely out of their depth. Not wanting to pay a wage that will induce...

Coff,

If the rumours I have heard are anything to go by, T2s are all we will see at Valley. Maybe someone has finally seen sense and realised a (moderately) slow TP and a 'fast jet' don't mix too...

Correct. HQ CFS have difficulty sourcing QFIs with the requisite background; RAFAT have had to lower the entry standard. The pool of pilots to draw instructors (or display pilots) from is now too...

The buy of 10 (I must admit, I thought it was originally 12) is based on the fact that the T6 will have something like 98% serviceability. Considering these things are going to be parked on the old...

WT, you are correct in that Creamies may be back on the cards. The impending QFI shortage at Valley means that not only is a second 'once only reset' on the cards but so are Creamies (oh, and...

Having flown with TCAS in 'fast jets' for a couple of years now, I wouldn't fly without it. It must be considered as a 'no go' item if u/s. It is beyond comprehension that it is not mandatory on all...

Linton closing should not come as a surprise - the only way that Ascent could justify their low bid was by closing one of the training airfields. The only thing that's stopped this happening sooner...

Like it or not, the Reds will be around for a while (IMHO) as they are indispensible to the UK plc brand. On the back of the re-opened production line, T2s are on offer for a reasonable price and so...

PP, that's just the point; in certain areas the RAF is screaming out for pilots, especially with the right attributes necessary for QFI. There doesn't seem to be enough of a pool to feed both QFI...

At a time when it's becoming ever more difficult to man the FTSs, it does seem incongruous that the RAF still has a pool of 9 potential QFIs in the Reds. We have to face the fact that with all the...
