Back in 2013, when flying Hawk T2s at RAF Valley, I had to put a flight safety report in: 'Failure to apply parking brake resulting in un-commanded aircraft movement.'
This made the Station Commander and my boss VERY unhappy because I was saying that, in sorting out the many number of problems that were part of everyday life under a poorly performing UK Military Flying Training System (UKMFTS), I was not safe to operate.
That wouldn't normally have been an issue except...
...I was the most senior flying instructor on the base.
If I was struggling, then so was everyone else.
When you make an error - tell people about it, it does two things - it makes everyone else safer AND it disarms those who wish to criticise you.
