As an old and bold ex FAA rating I reckon what I am about to say will wind up more than those who just may agree. Is it time to combine the FAA and the RAF? Forget about the traditions, we seem to be living and working alongside our crabfat brethren doing the same job and I believe that now their maintainers even go to sea. So why not have one Air wing to serve all services. Yes even teeny weenie airways, the army air core. Awaiting incoming.
