Probably the wrong place to put this, but it does seem that the flying end of the ACO hang out here.
Has anyone looked at the replacement for the AEF Yellow Sheet, now given the name 2FTS Form 005. As you would expect a lot more columns to shift a bit more responsibility for getting things right to the squadrons' CFAVs to confirm (in case anyone has forgotten the V stands for Volunteer).
However, there used to be a column to record flight time which was normally filled in with something like .25 meaning 25 minutes. On the new form this is replaced with four columns for minutes, tens of minutes, hours and (wait for it) tens of hours. Now I am fairly sure that if a cadet ever got a flight over an hour we could manage to write 1.12 in the old column, but why tens of hours? A time that is several times the fuel endurance of the Tutor, but also many times the bladder endurance of those on board. I can't really see a VGS exceeding nine hours fifty nine minutes on one flight either.
Why am I concerned? The space for these additional columns has been taken from all the other columns including the tiny space we are expected to write the cadets first and last name.
Now, I agree that this is not earth shattering, but it maybe shows the continued lack of understanding by 2FTS of what is really going on.
