    I must say the most satisfying fallout from the new Navy DPM is how much it will upset the hardened office Pongo's.

    The more Ikon posts the better.

    It is currently not a 24/7 service and has not been for some time.

    I could safely bet that there are no more than 2-3, if even that, who are achieving 300+ hours a year over the last 5 year period.

    As C252 says, if you have FOs on multi engine aircraft who are...

    Thank you for that. I appreciate that the PSPC report states that the standing down of the standby roster was due to to the loss of pilots. It then mentions ATC was was also a significant factor. The...

    As I have already explained, the AC won't be sending pilots who are out of contract because they can leave at any time unless some form of an undertaking is received prior. There is essentially zero...

    @GTTC, as with everything context is key. I think it might be about time that people were made aware that when you post, you refer to a quite a short period of service in Baldonnel that ended almost...

    Correct. The fear of the unknown. Ask the question and you may aswell hang up your boots.

    Absolutely it should be an option for all ranks of specialist trades. I thought that was inferred from my post but perhaps I should have been clearer.

    The reality is, pilots in contract have no...

    Fully agree. If there is scope to do exchanges abroad where it is mutually beneficial, then its a no brainer.

    Of course it will not suit every individual and would require careful management. Both...

    My understanding is that Hedderman joined as a regular infantry officer and had ambitions to complete the ADF SOF course prior to his injury. He received citizenship some time after initially joining.

    No, I am not saying that. I am saying that Dev once again claimed that, and I quote, "there is a lot of places closer to home where it could be done". Which is nothing more than hyperbole unless it...

    Dev, you stated the following:



    Please outline which aircraft and missions are not being completed as a result of a lack of pilots.

    All I can think that you are referring to is the standing...

    Just to clarify a few things for those playing guessing games.

    This move has been in the works for months now, it is only becoming public knowledge due to the Taoiseachs' speech.

    I have to agree.

    I can honestly say that I have never heard of experienced a CFR officer being excluded from any officer group because they didn't do a cadetship.

    As mentioned above, once...

    You know I cannot provide you with evidence, just as there is no evidence to the contrary.

    What you have quoted above is my own opinion, it is not a 'fact' as such but I didn't expect I needed to...

    A few observations if I may.

    Green Haix aircrew boot is currently being trialled.

    There is also new dark tank/brown flying clothing being trialled which looks absolutely hideous with no benefit over what is already on issue.
