Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) -BROCKMAN- Yesterday, Senator Young asked me a question about No. 34 Squadron. As I advised the honourable senator yesterday, No. 34 Squadron's main responsibility is related to the carriage of VIPs and the training necessary to maintain the required degree of operational efficiency. Over the past 12 months the Squadron has averaged 356 hours flying a month. Of this 244 hours was related to the VIP task and the balance of 112 hours involved conversion and continuation training and necessary maintenance testing associated with the efficient operation of the aircraft. Regarding the average hours reached by a pilot in No. 34 Squadron my inquiries indicate that each pilot averages about 50 hours a month.
