    [FONT=&quot]Looks like another board. Not sure how many will switch, but still shows our push to beef up the fixed wing community in anticipation of the Ocean Sentry coming on.

    For details, see ALCGOFF 227/08 - AIRCRAFT TRANSITION SOLICITATION

    For all you helo drivers...."Come to the dark side, Luke! It's your destiny" :icon_rage:icon_rage:icon_rage

    I'll post the bulk of the message below for those interested.

    Cheers! :D
