Change of detail, but...
With the brave new World of AEF with increased aircraft numbers has anyone thought of the rest of the operation? For the third time in succession we have had AEF cancelled at short notice (latest was the evening before) for reasons other than weather. This was because of a shortage of pilots.
It was already getting difficult to find cadets who wanted to spend half a day twiddling their thumbs in a windowless room, with the dubious pleasure of being treated as idiots by the hired staff (Babcock) in return for a short passenger ride in a Tutor. It will be much more difficult in future. It will also be more difficult to get VOLUNTEER staff to re-arrange their weekends to accompany the cadets, only to end up with it being cancelled.
Anyone else having problems?
