Just a quick thought why does the AAC operate its SQN`s as a SQN with a mix of jack-of-all-trades all under one roof. I was always surprised that HQ Sqn wasnt set up with a ground support flight instead of each SQN having its token gesture of manpower. Command Troop is the nearest we get to a fully ground crew managed team with no direct pilot influence. How can an flying Sqn OC who lets face it has little man management experience, control on the ground crew. Now that lots of LE officers are in the system surly they should control the ground support teams. This post is not a dig at the pilots nor the Sqn commanders it just baffles me why the ground crew dont manage them selves and at least then they may have a career structure with more appeal than at present.
