Those who keep themselves at the top end of the fitness scale obviously need less attention. Those in the middle need some. Those at the bottom end need more. It seems sensible to focus the efforts...

Either you didn't read my post or I failed to make myself clear. I was reflecting upon the CURRENT IOT and not some aspiration. For what it's worth, the RAF is severely hampered by those who remain...

It would be a real shame to chop the current IOT in any way.

You old buggers who retired before it got serious - you can stop reading now.

I went through IOT in the mid 90's and thought I got a...

Well then there you go. Some people who are part of a very large and diverse organization have personal standards and views not shared by some other people.

If you filter out the selective memory and history so far in this thread, joining as a junior rank with the intention of becoming an Officer (never mind a Pilot) is ill advised. Very very few people...

How very astute of you.

Just because the MoD didn't understand something 30 years ago does not mean it should not and does not understand something a little better today. Many of the Stiff Upper...

I take it that you've had a holiday cancelled and now you've got the hump?

Where do you see the responsibility of the UKFO sitting? Is it with the Tunisian government or is it perhaps looking at...

I was told that the substantive rank of Acting Pilot Officer was Pilot Officer.

APO was an honour, not a rank. As someone who held the position of SAPONI for a few months, I often reflect on the...

That was the 'system' working. Irregularity spotted and dealt with because someone had visibility. A Range Manager earning their pay.

Well yes, yes it is. However, for the system to work, those spares need to be visible by the 'system'. There won't be enough of those items for every chief in the RAF to have a few in his drawer, so...

In my entire service I never saw a gym that allowed 'veterans' free use. So there hasn't been a change of heart towards veterans.

A gym costs to build and maintain, particularly the equipment. I...

There's no point in flying around with more weight than you need. It slows you down, puts extra strain on engines, airframe etc. You also take the landing weight into consideration as well - you...

It was more a reflection of my frustration that, whilst the Army and REME in particular got it together and got involved, the RAF were rather sniffy and arms-length with the whole thing. Given I was...

The MoD was not willing to make the changes it needed so I guess it will change when someone else makes them. It's always the way, like bringing in a consultant to tell the higher management what...

Most other NATO countries have a far better reserve to regular ratio than the UK has. They make it work. It is a bit of an adjustment in mindset and approach but it could be done.

The shirts shown look like a blue version of the current combats. Same pockets, same rank, no need for the camouflage so they have remained dark blue as they always have. Seems sensible for life...
