??? A couple of questions - do you think that we have a QHI MAFIA system in the Corps and the rest of us who have a experience in other areas apart from pure flying skills (ACT/EW/Weapons/NVG/IF) are being beaten down by those QHIs that see their empires shrinking? This new QHTI qualification. Are we sending QHIs on it first (refer to above paragraph!) or are we following the line of the other 2 Services that both let non QHIs instruct after a 2 week ground course on Air Instruction? I.E. It is only our own Standards that dig in their feet to us lesser mortals putting our experience to good use? CFS are more than happy with the idea and have been letting the crabs and fisheads do it for years. Second question (your money is safe, you don't have to answer or you can phone a friend) but why is it that young officers aren't given the support of the senior Staffy'S/WO's? Are the YO's that arrogant or are the Seniors so full of their own self importance that they forget when they were baby pilots? Someone carries the buck when/if it all goes wrong and in the current system it is the YOs where that buck stops not the Seniors. None of the above is a bait I promise - you know, just a couple of questions that niggle away at the back of the mind!
