The link for the survival equipment fitter job said that the minimum length of service is nine years. I was surprised to see that such a long service commitment is required.

It is 9 years as i am joing as a non commisioned aircrew (if i spelt that right)

But in those 9 years, other than the job i can learn to fly at any of the gliding clubs at the bases i may be posted to

I can get betterqualifications and take course etc etc

Once the 9 years are up, i can stay in for more, or leave and go into the civilian trade. Other than the fact of my experiecne in the job when i leave, i will also have learned to fly at a cheap price
Where does the time go???

Well done Trekster, Im sure you and your parents are very proud, we all are.

Now you will be a real professional with authority, not like most of the people on this site who live in hope!!

Well done

Thank you for that Wally

My mum and dad were both in the raf, my dad leaving 2 years ago as a flt sgt and my mum 22 years ago when i came into the world

We still have relatives serving, and my mum works at RAFC Cranwell so i have been around the raf all my life.

Aviation has had a help in getting me to do this job. Working with a great team environment, a new life as well, and working with fast jets, what more could u ask for (maybe drew barrymore as my wife but i doubt it)
