The nay sayers on here are closing their eyes to the fact that a lot more than a couple of percentage points of cadets are flying.
During the gliding pause and this year thousands of cadets have flown at least once and some have flown in gliders. As the VGS RTF programme continues that will improve, but will be nothing like what it was pre pause.
Geography will be and always was an issue for some. You may have to travel longer distances. Some will continue to whinge about this and others will just get on with it and make the effort. There’s always been a degree of this in the organisation…!
You either accept it for what it is or move on…!
