LLBI Botch Trainer Upgrade


LLBI bosses admitted today that the planned upgrade to their fleet of Scruggs Trainers from T1 to T4 aircraft has been badly handled by main contractor Scruggs Systems. Since the upgrade they have been unable to carry an instructor. Said a anonymous source at LLBI Flying School "What is the bloody use of a trainer that can only carry a pupil and no instructor? When we had our Tiger Moths upgraded in 1948 it was twice as capable at a quarter if the cost"

LLBI to a website spokesman that this as minor problem and Scruggs Systems would be responsible for completing the conversion by Christmas 2001. Meanwhile trainees would be using a virtual instructor to sit along side them. Said the spokesman "This will almost as good as the real instructor, except that he may be a little quieter. Should the virtual instructor go off line he can be brought back to life by a small inflator valve.
