    VAC wait times

    I requested a reassessment in Jan 2023. I received the forms in Oct 2023.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    My example was actually 2 different wpns systems but I get what you mean 😉 We just need the GoC to give up some money! 🙂

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    MAG could improve the way out best crew sims are capable of linking together and with Allies. Having said that, some sig improvements have been made in ability to join multi-national SIMEXs.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    They have been relaxed some, where possible, since I’ve been with the fleet. Is more possible? I don’t think so, not without negatively impacting safety and proficiency. It’s been discussed numerous times and the fleet talks about these things are regularly scheduled STDs and Trg...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Block 4 PCTs in ZX and QQ for Tac tube, and the CPT and FFS for flight deck types in ZX.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    No you flat out said “no one in the CAF has flown the P8”. You made a statement and that statement was not correct. Currently, there are RCAF LRP aircrew with more than 1 of our allies P-8 fleets. I’m not going to say how many, where, or their trades on here.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Not at all; it’s more a reality of the civie Pilot part time ability to get thru the training and then maintain the category and currency requirements (which are the exact same for Reg and Res). It works for people going Reg to Res, reasonably well in our fleet. Flip side; the people on...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    That is incorrect. I’d say it is likely the other way around. The P-3 type gets the CRM and tactical side; “flying” is the easier part IMO.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Being shot at in a sim with MANPADS and hearing “guns guns guns” over the ICS during a mission in Syria were not the same experience for me; YMMV. “Only restricted by the limits of the person writing the programme”. How about funding?

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Just wanted to add quickly; with the P-8 comes new sims. I have zero info on how the sims are in the P-8 fleets our Allies are using. Hopefully both YFR and sim availability increase for our VP folks. I’ve experienced Block 2, 3 and 4 OMS in the 140 fleet and base my opinion on that.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    So is the FFS for the 140 (“ish”). The OMS, Operational Mission Simulator, which incorporates the whole crew, “simulates” the real world. Lots more to consider like simulating a RFN SSN, water mass, acoustic performance, weapon’s behaviour, riser/sinker parameters, EO/IR. The simulate...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    How often do maint have to do egress currency? If they don’t turn a wrench in 30 days, do they need a STF by a STDs quald person to get them current again? Minimum flight and sim hours every 30 days? Quarterly? Semi and annual currency requirements? The tail chase aircrew deal with re...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    FEs are still flying RW…but there is a project that is (the last I heard…) looking at ways to modernize all flying NCM trades, I believe some of our Allies were looked at and visited to see how they break theirs out. Like, one MOSID with Occ specialities/sub-MOSIDs.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Traffic tech still has green DEU types (I think). Refueling trucks are MSE Ops, as are Flt Feeding delivery vehs. There’s an sub-unit “LRP Supply” in the Op hanger in ZX; I’ll guess they fall under WLog somehow but would probably be very type-specific in experience/knowledge after a...

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Watching people/seeing aircrew at work and understanding everything that they need to do to be able to fill a crew position are pretty different. There are many small to big parts for flyers, with Pilot being the most stringent; both in a simulator and aircraft. I can’t speak for all fleets...

    Excuse or reality? How many assets do the organizations you mentioned have compared to the Canadian counterparts?

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    When you were in, did you have exposure to or take part in any aircrew training or fly operationally?

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Serviceable aircraft and sufficient maint resources to keep them flying. So….yah. Lol How many Air Guard etc pilots are “straight off the street” with no prior service flying mil air?

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    “Flying a plane” is just one aspect of the job; right now in some fleets it’s hard just for aircrew to maintain their ticket/category/currency. I’m not sure how a true blue Class A reserve pilot would ever get thru the trg; just to be a FO in our fleet is a fair amount of work. If you...
