Quoting EBJ1248650 (Reply 2):
Presumably they'll use their two-seaters to train pilots who follow the first group who trained in Europe.
Isn't the initial cardray of RSAF pilots being trained by the RAF?
|Quoting EBJ1248650 (Reply 5):|
I presume the RAF is training the first group so that the airplanes can go operational as soon as possible. I further assume the Saudi AF will form a transition training unit utilizing their own two-seaters in the not too distant future. I'm just surprised the two-seaters haven't started being delivered yet.

Putting their people through 29 (R) is not a 'second best' option for the RSAF, and though they have an aspiration to get an autonomous training capability, for the time being, following a more 'Austrian' model is fine, and it will allow a more rapid build up of the first squadron.
