Unless the said general is current in a flying instructor position, I fail to see the need for him to keep himself current.

He is just a pen-pusher/manager.

It isn't likely he will be spearheading the next Nato intervention from the cockpit of his Mirage.

It is not like the Duke of Edinburgh and the First Sea Lord practice A.S.W., the Chief of Air Staff goes on strafing runs with an Apache or the Chief of the General Staff goes for sniper practice.

I hope he gets Court Martial followed by an excursion to the Brig.

Chances are he will just retire on fat pension we can only dream of.

P.S. Helicopter icon ... because there isn't an aircraft one.
