I've just finished reading this book and I totally agree. A Sterling effort from a Stirling pilot. Murray Peden's book gives a fantastic insight into EATS training in Canada. It has answered a lot of questions as to what went on at the various stages of training. It was also good to hear from a bomb...
We've finally done it. This week we booked our holiday in Canada. The first section is in BC and a cruise to Alaska and then off to the east coast. We have two nights in Toronto (28/29 May) so will hopefully be able to include a visit to the Warplane Heritage Museum (may need lots of begging and scr...
Max the course at SFTS was divided into two sections. ITS (Initial Training Squadron ) covered basic work on Oxfords and then Ansons up to gaining their wings.

I'm currently typing up my uncle's log book. When I got to his ATS training at 6SFTS, the lessons were in code.

First time in a motorhome. Enjoyed it but don't know if we'd do it again. Main benefit was being able to visit ...
I've now come up with another problem. My list of exercises for the Link Trainer only go from 1 to 8. However, in EFTS my uncle has done Lessons 1 -14. What are each of the lessons?
Can anyone help with the meaning of "P&F" when using a Link Trainer. The first two sessions my uncle did on the trainer were marked as "P&F" in his logbook. He the went through the series of lessons during his time at EFTS.
