Recently I’ve seen your experiences dealing with ex IAF pilots in a multi crew environment replicated. My airline has actively sought to dispose of the ‘old school’ instructors (particularly ex RAF) who only listen to themselves and think everything they learned decades ago is the only way and absolutely zero interest in listening to contrary viewpoints. The interesting part is the scientific studies that have found that these guys actually deliver inferior training and cannot keep up with the advances in technology and in particular techniquesLack of quality in officers thatswhy she was invited.
Even a average guy here can humble a Infantry unit CO over modern weapons knowledge.
Then they might say..These bloody call of duty junta will teach us?
If this is the way even in a ‘progressive’ Western country I can only imagine the archaic thought process being instilled and embodied in some Indian officers even now.
