I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 3 March 2006, Hansard, column 1002W, on incentive schemes for pilots.

The single targeted taxable financial retention incentive referred to in my previous answer is currently also payable to Fast Jet Weapons System Officers. A similar incentive is payable to Non-Commissioned Aircrew, following 17 years service for a guaranteed five year return of service. This scheme ends on 31 March 2006.

There is also a Professional Aviator Pay Scale for selected Weapons System Officers and a similar scheme is available to Non-Commissioned Aircrew.
