I’m sure if they keep eating their cornflakes a set of wings will fall out. Everybody seems to get them now.

H Peacock,

The ‘dumbing down’ is simply accepting reality. There is not an unlimited pot for CT. And I’m almost certain more people have died practicing engine failures than aircraft have been...

Or, stop doing PEFETOs and just mandate a height/speed criteria below which one flies straight ahead only and above which low key is a certainty?

Perhaps we just get grumpy over time, with the exception of BV who is definitely a glass half full man. The Tucano was just fine for me and I had a blast at Linton. Calling it a procurement failure...

Unfortunately Typhoon tranche 1 is a fleet all by itself. Tranche 2 and 3 share some commonality, but they are structurally different. The all share the same silhouette though.

The Prefect seems a strange choice as well. The absence of a torque governor does not seem compatible with an elementary trainer.

The USMC only just rolled out a full up demonstration team this year and they have had 3 front line squadrons and an OCU running for years now. Also,...

It’s not specialist pay spines, it’s pay bands for all branches, like the junior ranks have.

But, we can keep putting our collective heads in the sand. I’m sure loads of people want to be Formula...

BV,

Spot on. If the “package” is “good” for pilots then what that really means is that we are vastly overpaying the ground branches!!

It’s high time for pay bands for the officer corps. But...

JTO,

But it is a pretty standard join to the visual circuit for a formation of radar equipped ac. So, there is nothing odd about it. As it sounds to me, the Typhoon didn't award his own clearance...

JTO,

incorrect, 1nm is a radar trail position, and you can be visual.

It seems to me that the gist of the first para quoted has been missed. It states that the terms used should be used when the ac becomes the second in sequence. ATC used the terms incorrectly, and the...

Because there aren’t enough secondary duties already.... and 92 is already taken, flying books out of Waddington with the AWC. How that came to be is beyond me.

LJ,

I agree with you. It’s not the money, it’s the “soft” stuff. But seeing as there is no way the “soft” stuff is going to be fixed without huge investment, money could hold on to some for...

Why do RAF sqns not have suffixes that reflect their actual role? Persisting with B or F from a Second World War designation when the role is different just seems pointless. By all means respect the...

I think the point is that gap between pilots required and pilots in service is growing and this is trying to retain SQEP where possible. I’m sure there will be plenty of places left open for...

Or it could be allowing current Typhoon QFIs who have had enough of the front-line grind to leave the RAF and be employed by BAE to help plug the gaps on 29 Sqn. If they are leaving anyway, why not...

For perspective, the USMC only grants 2 x 96 hour liberty periods over Christmas and works 27-28 December. 2 continuous weeks of leave is not bad in that context!

Just wondering what the nearest div with cables from Lossie would be if they got rid of Leuchars.

I would be very surprised if it were true. There was much made of sim only prior to first flights for Typhoon, but I cannot think of anyone doing the rest of the OCU sim only. Refreshers don’t even...
