1. An Army Officer is more highly trained than an RAF or Navy Officer. Why is it that a Navy/RAF Officer will be the equivalent of Captain, WITHOUT a degree sooner than an Army GRADUATE? We have to do JOTES/JOTAC/JOLP etc but theirs is automatic. Why? 2. An Army pilot only receives flying pay at HALF the rate of an RAF/NAVY pilot and only AFTER conversion to type. We have to do a 6 month A/C Commanders course before going to the next rate. Joint Services? I don't think so. Anyone care to comment?
