Try having sympathy when you drive there wait and get told it ain’t happening OR arrange to go get cadets ready do the daft form and then get an email saying it ain’t happening. I’d prefer they binned weekend flying altogether and give us the money to source AEF through a flying school. No one outside the protectionist RAF flying club would be bothered if it meant getting cadets in the air. There seems to be more going on in the ATC to invent jobs / keep RAF people in jobs rather than delivering to the cadets.
Ever since the move to Wittering was planned (I use the word in its loosest possible sense) AEF hasn’t happened, because it was left to people not looking at the whole picture and ensuring that the move didn’t happen until everything was in place. The impetus seems to be come in Monday see and email - OMG Wyton’s closing panic, spin, flap and oh good we can move it to Wittering, job done or not, by Monday lunch, then back to whichever social media stream they use to say how good they’ve been.
