The grievor challenged the decision to end his Phase II Harvard pilot training due to course failure. The grievor argued that the lack of available aircraft and continuity of flights impacted his training progression and that participants of the series of courses, of which he was a part, were less successful than those on previous and subsequent courses.
The Commander 2 Canadian Air Division, acting as the Initial Authority (IA), concluded that the grievor's flying continuity was in line with what other students experienced. The IA also found that the grievor's training was conducted in accordance with the Integrated Training Plan (ITP). The IA determined that the decision to end the grievor's training was in accordance with the applicable policies. The IA did not afford redress.
The Committee found that the grievor's Phase II training was conducted in accordance with the ITP. The Committee also found that the management of other course serials was not pertinent to an assessment of whether the grievor's training was conducted in accordance with the ITP.
The Committee found that the grievor's Progress Review Board was conducted in accordance with the ITP and applicable policies, its findings were supported by reliable evidence, and its recommendation that the grievor end training was reasonable and justified.
The Committee recommended that the Final Authority not afford the grievor redress.
