Wouldn't that be something to build terms of service around? Figure out how much time the CAF is hoping to get out of a pilot specialist post-training and make that the obligatory term - assume that most will disappear to commercial aviation. Would expect that number's already been determined somewhere in the career management and training/recruiting worlds.

British Apaches have a folding blade mechanism for shipboard storage to support amphibian operations.
IMO Apaches would be good for CAF, besides escort recce and fire support missions, a foldable rotor would enable Apaches to be embarked in new JSS or even aboard a frigate/destroyer for littoral operations.
Could Apaches be adapted to naval helicopter hauldown equipment.
I didnt see this post until now. I re started the conversation around Used British Apaches -now more than ever they are thinking on retiring the Gazzeles-

I read that UK is lookin to replace Gazelles helicopters. They provide support for Batus in Canada. It would be great to see a British Apache replacing it instead of the Lynx. Airbus H135

I doubt you will see much in BATUS these days from the UK - the British want their Military somewhere relevant, and sure as SH*T they aren't going to put Apaches in Canada.

There are no Gazelles left in SU/C. Apaches would not do the job the Gazelles do there. They have brought Apaches over in the past to do Apache things.
