    Climate disasters will be part of defence update as strains grow, minister says

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    This USAF programme, if implemented in Canada, would seem to fast track civilian pilots from airlines to just about everything the RCAF flies. The only exempt aircraft would seem to be the fast jets - ie Hornets and Lightnings. https://www.youralternateroute.com/blog
