AAC going fixed wing?

#1
A course started this week at one of the civvy flying schools for some AAC chaps, apparantly to train the up on multi-engine fixed wing flying.
Can anyone shed any light on this?

Not getting the A10?..... just a guess.

Something far more useful than a Warthog... :bounce:

Maybe they just wanted to test the security within the AAC and were looking to see if anyone would BLURT out information that may or may not endanger soldiers at a civilian school?

Maybe, just maybe, there would be a bloke in the unit who was just nosey?

Pointing out that the AAC are attending a flight school "somewhere in UK" can hardly be regarded as targetting infiormation ( unless you are Arclight). For a "security breach" to occur, I would be looking for a credible threat first.


Perhaps Ozzie BL does not know he is going to find the british squaddie massing at certain rail termini on a Friday afternoons, or at certain hostlerys on a Saturday night?

Perhaps only "WasMe" is a ware of the Fatwah that has been issued against Army Aviation for unholy consumption of "nutty" on the muslim sabath?

If you want to know why they are training more on twin, check the "Defense Media" accross the pond, all will be explained

I tried to post a pic of said fixed wing. It got bounced, I think. Google AAC and all will be revealed.
