When the Instructor Department was first created that was the norm: we had a separate sim if the number of cadets justified it in which we covered the bare basics.
Still, I don’t think it’s fine for a scout to be a training vessel. Using one properly is extremely complicated, and surviving takes some experience. At any rate, it’d mean an Instructor has to be the captain, and I’m not sure if that’s doable.
Well, I’m not even sure how Jemel feels about that.
