    It got very, very close some years ago to the point that the AC were listed by EDA as participants. It got pulled at the last minute.

    Either that or the actual root cause still hasn't been pinned down

    An Air Corps AW139 was today tasked to transport members of the Garda Emergency Response Unit from Dublin to Co Cork following a shooting incident.

    In the context of the last post, what does "re engagement of personnel" mean

    The Air Corps took back some recently retired officers. Presumably this is what it refers to. I don't believe there was anything similar for NCOs.

    Have to say I prefer this to the flypast of PC-9Ms. To the average observer, the PC9M is just another aerobatics team. The Sight and sound though of a Green Heli, with massive tricolour underslung, leaves one in very little doubt who it is.

    A few techs have gone back, but quite a few declined as their pension would be retrenched if they did and it wouldn't be worth it, financially. So, unless the pay scales change, people will continue to vote with their wallet. Tech firms of all kinds are looking for skilled people and the AC offer is not competitive.
