The RAF does not recognise the term specialist pilot. We have a sufficient number of trained pilots to meet our operational commitments. However, I am withholding information on the number of pilots qualified to operate the P-8 aircraft as it would, or would be likely to prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Armed Forces.
