Because in this organisation having information is key. (i.e the WgExO will find it much harder to fob me off with a ‘no’ if I can say I know of ‘x’ times when ‘y’ was done in other wings.)
Has anyone ever borrowed/hired a full on coach from MT for an expedition and had a fully qualified CFAV drive it themselves? I have a Sgt who is a professional driver, fammed up on everything you can name, he’s also now a manager, so he doesn’t actually drive anymore meaning there won’t be any hours conflicts. I also know that Brize have a few coaches on the lot.
However, this is the ATC, and the concept of borrowing a free coach, and staffing it with a free driver seems so simple as to make it impossible for the two organisations to actually pull off!
So has anyone else done it?
