How common is this gloveless flying in PAF?? Can junior pilots also choose to fly like this while training???
Its against SOPs though. A pilot's gloves are generally made of nomex, a fire resistant fabric. The primary reason for wearing them is to protect the pilot's hands in the event of fire in the cockpit. It offers protection and is a part of the military aviation tradition.

May be better fire retardant systems inside the cockpit nowadays mean pilots can afford this luxury now?? It is a Squadron commander doing this for the camera so may be rules are relaxed....

NOt that good, in case there is some hydraulic or fuel leakage, that liquid can burn your skin....i know some specific PAF squadrons where this SOP is followed in true spirt....rather imposed....

Do squadrons get/loose points for following/ignoring these safety protocols?? Does this culminate in like a competition or safety trophy 🏆 ??

Hi,

This pilot is committing a cardinal flight sin. If he has to eject on these frozen mountains, there is no chance for his survival at all.

because by the time he lands on the snowy mountain after ejection ---his hand upto his arm would be frozen and would break like a twig as he hits the ground.
