SDSR - did we just pull out of Belize without formally announcing it?

#1
SDSR makes no mention of the retention of Belize as a training area - does this mean that BATSUB is about to be shut down?

Don't worry. A CVF will be along in 2020 to scare the Guatamalans off.

I don't know what's happening to the rest of it but the Flight is allegedly moving to BATUS, a decision that was taken several months ago in some Land training rationalisation.

isn't there a problem there as the 412's are maintained by joe civ and the canadians won't let non canadians do the work? so a sky god told me (hence duty rumour they are fort hood bound)

The 212's are owned and maintained by FBHeliservices, not by JHC or LAND, dosent sit well with canadian labour laws.

BATSUB may be mothballing or may be carrying on normal jogging, missed off the plot maybe?

There are at least 4 Coy sized exercises planned for 2011 so far, not including AT expeds.
