    I think, with deep respect to all involved, we remind ourselves exactly what a shitshow the DoD made of SAR when the Air Corps did it.
    Those who are not familiar with it, should read this document...

    On quick glance though, PDF numbers have remained mostly steady since after The Emergency. The current figures are not even the lowest strength reached. The FCA/RDF numbers impact the overall view...

    Excellent point, there comes a point when you no longer have enough officers and NCOs to train recruits, and not enough privates to do the other tasks so that training can take place. Unless you want...

    The current "debate" if you can call it that is a huge dose of "wrap the green flag round me" by some politicians supporting the move.
    They are pushing the patriotism of letting the state's...

    There was a time when we had that with the A3. Any ex involving more than 1 bn got at least 3 to work with. They were fine light utility helicopters, and ended their service being used as such full...

    SAR, if done by Air Corps, should only be as a spare capacity. It should never have become a primary role, with all other military roles coming behind.

    Nonsense. The public couldn't give 2 hoots. Did the army get 80 APCs based on the public view that they'll be used as buses the next time there is a transport strike?

    The unit should be disbanded. It has sullied the good name and heritage the unit once had.

    And what was the other 4 and a half acres used for?

    You can't do like for like. You can only do that if you take CHC pilots off flying duties regularly to act in administrative roles, or train new SAR pilots. CHC techies must get the same pay as Air...

    Why would you base anything in Oranmore when there is a perfectly good functioning airport in Shannon, which already has the hangars etc.

    The main problem is for the most part those countries have a squadron, or Squadrons, dedicated to SAR. When the Air Corps did it, the squadron had a range of other rotary wing tasks too. For years...

    Looking at the graph, I am reminded of the RDF "golden years" in the late 90s/ early 2000s. We were all issued Combats (initially o/g, later DPM) and were armed with modern firearms (initially FAL,...

    It may be that the decision is made based on the fact that the type is very good at what it does, and by changing now, we get a good 2nd hand price as we replace with something with slightly more all...
