Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force. – in the House of Commons on 20th May 1942.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether there is an officers cadet training unit for flying personnel as distinct from non-commissioned officers?
That does not conform with the right hon. Gentleman's former statement that these people had a different training.
What former statement?
The right hon. Gentleman's reply to me, that commissioned and non-commissioned officers had entirely different training.
I cannot recall the context of the statement. They have a different experience at subsequent stages in the Royal Air Force, certainly.
Then there is no actual difference in the training of non-commissioned and commissioned officers as regards flying?
There are many courses which officers attend and many which non-commissioned officers attend. It depends on the stage of the training.
I mean prior to that—as cadets.
Certainly, everyone goes through the same course of flying training.
