Fingers crossed it wouldn’t be a working party - but delegating the responsibility to RCs wouldn’t be a bad outcome.
RC’s could lead on non-service aircraft flying within their regions. 2FTS are already crying that there are “too many BGA clubs for them to “inspect” and “ensure compliance””. Why do they need to inspect them? Are they not already regulated - why does he want to meddle with their processes? Why do 2FTS need oversight of non-RAF flying anyway? Shrink OC2FTS’s empire - let him focus on his pet (risk-adverse) simulators and getting the gliders back in the air.
Instead, set aside BGA clubs and other non-service aircraft, treat them as external providers like we do any other activity (White Water Rafting, Climbing walls, CSPA shooting, rides in fire engines, Go Carting, Going to the cinema). Squadron staff are responsible for collating evidence for external providers they propose to use, collecting moneys and providing “staff cover”; Wing/Region then authorize the event having checked compliance against a check list. Why does 2FTS actually have to get involved? It could be Wg/Rg Flying/Gliding Liaison Officers role - Duty Holder could sit with RCs - as it does with AT, despite the fact that few RCs are AT qualified.
I’d like to think that AOC 22Gp saw sense this week… But a recent post about him I saw on LinkedIn did make me question whether “seeing sense” was one of his skills on his personal profile.
