New helo trainer at Rucker?

No. The fleet can't get enough deck time now. So now a nice to have is going to take even more time away from the fleet? Studs do fine with no boat time now until the RAG.
So the majority of non deployed single spot ships aren't doing a constant stream of 1-2 day ops like in 20 years ago? Is deck availability that bad - honestly had no idea.

Yes. A big issue is the number of ships. The FFGs are gone and their replacement can't get underway. Plus the other ships are now 20 years older, which doesn't help.

Tell me they at least took it out for a cruise while people sipped their wine and looked at local art.
