New winches and retrieval systems are all well and good, but the thing that is really going to dictate output is the staff. There is going to be a greater burden on CT requirements with a larger...

Unfortunately, I think the world has changed, and that whole being part of the operation doesn't have the appeal anymore. In fact, as a former VGS instructor, I flew many cadets who clearly did not...
