§ Sir F. SYKES
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what are the annual average flying hours per aircraft, per pilot, and per head of personnel on the establishment of the units operating the Cairo-Bagdad air service?
§ Mr. LEACH
There is no exclusive allocation of units or personnel to this service, which is carried out in the interests of training, and, as other service requirements permit, by any aircraft and pilots that may be available in Iraq or Egypt. The total flying hours on this route, for the 12 months ended 31st May last, are 1,308, spread over 113 flights.
