The RCAF has a specifically codified set of regulations that very strictly control when an aircraft can be flown in what would be considered an unserviceable state. It has minimum levels to which flight authorization can be delegated, usually formation or division auth required. So the answer isn’t ‘never’ but it is very well understood by all, what the regulations are and procedure to follow.Thanks. I think we agree on this.
So here is the test: when an air force general orders planes to fly and is told they can't due to air worthiness issues, what is his/her response?
If an admiral orders a ship to sea and is told they can't because of seaworthiness (something like the red/purple button above), what is his/her response?
A. Procedural compliance is the mechanism by which we assure the safety of our sailors / airmen (air women?) and please expedite remediation of this situation as quickly as possible.
B. In order to meet operational commitments, get operational and deploy NOW.
