Septics training Wafus???

Is this correct??. We already have 12 FAA pilots flying in the US . Plus ( chockheads Badgers FDOs and AED) flight deck crew,including all the branches you mention are already embedded in and being trained by the USN.:laughing2:

Makes perfect sense to me.

The yanks have got the toys we haven't yet. The alternative would be the French. Sod that, they'd end up gayer than they already are, kissing each other and drinking wine.

You speak too soon shippers. The first 5 out of a planned 30 are apparently already in the process of learning the lingo prior to flying the Rafale.

Nelson would be doing his nut. So, wafu's will be smelling of garlic and dodgy cheese instead of smelling like the fear of work? I must make a point of greating monty with a bonjour from now on. :slow:

Leaving aside the aiirframe jockeys, surely keeping currency on FW must be beneficial, no matter who provides it. In some respects, mixing time with the septics, frogs and possibly Johnny Dago might have the advantage of compensating for the returning appointees importing foreign habits. Also spreading the experience may allow better selection of best practice amongst their foreign ways

We have always had FAA personnel on exchange tours. What is so different now? Numbers perhaps - but it's not like the wheel is being re-invented!!

True Waspie, I have served with a few, from the RAF and the USMC. Of course , apart from the rotary wing lads, a bit one sided nowadays, and for the foreseeable future.
