It looks as though up to 25% of new trainee pilots in the RAF are going to be told that their training is to be terminated on Tuesday, as part of the Government strategic defence review.
They will have been training for the last few years to fly fighters, helicopters and transport aircraft. So the money that has been spent on this will be wasted, about £4
million for each pilot, plus the cost of the redundancies; what a waste of our tax payers money!
As the UK is an island the Royal Air force has to be the most important of all our defence forces as proven by history; what a sort memory our government seem to have!
How can we then support the front line forces in Afghanistan or any other global conflict the UK decides to help with?
