They are trialing new two-piece flying suits - based upon what the CANSOFCOM guys are currently wearing.

Interesting - any chance those new suits will be issued to aircrew too?  I like the idea of not tucking in my shirt on the 2-piece.   :nod:

Just because they prefer to get out halfway through the flight doesn't make them non-aircrew;  they simply have the option of placing less faith in pilots than you do.   :P

Technically, SAR Techs are flight crew, not aircrew.

Actually, IIRC, the CFA0 (55-something?) says aircrew trades include Pilot, Nav, FE, SAR Tech and AESOP.  Flight crew are Loadies, Flt Srgn, Flt Steward, Flt Attendant, Test Evaluators, etc.

I might be wrong by my UFI is usually ok.   ;D

Edit - found it in an earlier UFI post of mine   ^-^

Naw, it was pretty subtle, so not your fault...at least you and I are dedicated to making sure than X=Y, where X = number of takeoffs, and Y = number of landings.   :nod:

Damn you -- it takes away some of my "mocking RCAF / been-there Airborne Regt" credibility, acknowledging several sets of boyscout badges.  >:(

So I guess it's been another wasted day; I've learned nothing.    ;D

Hey all!

Long time lurker, first time poster.  Is anyone thinking about selection for this year?  We had a brief on the trade here at Gagetown last week and was wondering if anyone from that brief, or in general, has / will be doing their pre-selection fitness test soon?  I'm just curious to see if there's anyone around that wants to train up for selection, should we be so lucky to be chosen!

Thanks!

I was watching TDV over the Christmas break.

So did anyone ever catch a rabbit using a snare in the survival part of Prelim? Those couple of days with no food must be brutal.
