I don't think you can cite the social structure of 8th Interval Benden as indicative of how a normal Weyr would work. That was a dying culture struggling for fresh blood and purpose. F'lar very well may have just been leading his clutchmates, because who cares? What duties does a fighting wing have with Thread "not coming back"?

F'lar mostly taught himself to be a wingleader out of old records and memories of his father's enthusiasm. That doesn't mean that's a good way to train a wingleader if you have a better option. Nor is "You're my brother and I love you" a necessary or sufficient qualification for a second-in-command if you've got a choice in who you pick.
