Out in the cold

Pilot - - NEW REGS -

Ba­sic UK mil­i­tary fly­ing train­ing will be un­der­taken in Grob 120TP Pre­fects such as G-CKCO, which may su­per­fi­cially re­sem­ble the Grob 115 Tu­tor it su­per­sedes but is a tur­bo­prop of com­pos­ite con­struc­tion with all-dig­i­tal in­stru­men­ta­tion. His­tor­i­cally, as with the Tiger Moth, Chip­munk and Bull­dog, such a step-change brings a flood of well-main­tained train­ers on to the civil­ian and sec­ond-hand mar­ket. The Fin­nish Air Force has used the forty-year old in­dige­nous Val­met Vinka for ini­tial train­ing but has now con­tracted Bab­cock In­ter­na­tional to sup­ply 28 EX-RAF Tu­tors and the in­struc­tion and main­te­nance to go with them. The first batch de­liv­ered in­cludes G-BYUG.
